Pressdown Services (PDS) becomes the Canadian master distributor for the Rapid X1 label printer and the Eclipse finishing system.
The Rapid X1, which employs Memjet print-head technology, features 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 system 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.
PDS is now carrying the Eclipse finishing system, which can be integrated with the Rapid X1 printer. The Eclipse features lamination, contour cutting, waste removal and a slitter in a single device.
