Konica Minolta unveils continuous inkjet plans
Konica Minolta Business Solutions is introducing its new WEBjet 200D and WEBjet100D continuous feed inkjet presses at inkjet Summit 2018 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, running until April 11.
The company explains the printing systems are the result of a three-way marketing, distribution and servicing partnership between itself, Super Web and Memjet. The presses will be officially launched later in the spring of 2018.
Manufactured by Super Web and leveraging Memjet print-head technology, both continuous feed inkjet printers will target high-speed and high-volume applications in the transaction, direct-mail, publishing and in-plant business sectors. The WEBJet line, which comes standard with rollstand and stacker, will complement Konica Minolta’s existing cut-sheet toner and inkjet products.
“All in all, it’s a mutually favorable arrangement for everyone. The addition of the WEBjet 200D and 100D fills a gap in our product portfolio we wanted to address,” said Dino Pagliarello, Vice President, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “And, it gives Super Web, the manufacturer, and by extension, Memjet, the digital technology provider, a suite of marketing and servicing capabilities to address a wider customer base.”
The WEBJet line is designed to give medium-size companies an affordable way to step into high-quality, variable data colour inkjet work. With a volume capacity of up to 20 million duplex colour letter size pages per month, WEBJet targets shifting page volumes from offset to digital, or moving colour toner volume to a new platform. Super Web explains that a single operator can manage the WEBJet’s large volume continuous feed.
“We are excited to enter into this agreement to extend the reach of our solutions to many more customers through Konica Minolta and its world-class service team – which will support WEBJet in the field,” said Paul Schwartz, President of Super Web.
