Halton Installs Rapid X1
Halton Commercial Printers Ltd. of Georgetown, just outside of Toronto, has installed a new Rapid X1 label printer. The system was purchased through Ontario distributor PDS Pressdown.
The Rapid X1 employs Memjet print-head technology, which allows the system to reach a top printing speed of 60 feet per minute, while producing a 1,600 x 1,600-dpi resolution. The 5-colour roll-to-roll device has an 8.5-inch printing width and a 12-inch OD unwind and rewind capacity. It also includes an optical sensor for pre-cut and stripped labels.
