ITALY • After a period of testing the company has given its OK to the sale of the new digital inkjet printing unit named JetPlus. The technology is the result of the cooperation with Domino, provider of the inkjet module, and the work of Omet’s R&D team that is responsible for its perfect integration into the presses and the achievement of important results for what concerns the speed of operation and the general cost management.
With JetPlus, the company adds another piece to its multi-technology, multi-substrate, multi-application machine offer, with digital inkjet fitting into Omet’s in-line printing, converting, finishing and delivery solution package. On the same press line it is possible to add flexo and offset groups, for the printing of pantones and solids, digital for cmyk or pantone printing, cold and hot foil, screen printing for special effects, UV lamination when needed and, finally, die-cutting and embossing. All processes are performed in-line with no need of extra converting work offline.
JetPlus allows printing and die-cutting at an average speed of 60 m/min (196.8 ft/min) thanks to the presence of Monotwin Cut, the die-cutting system patented by Omet. According to the company, in case of variation of the die-cutting shape, the change is carried out rapidly with no need to replace the magnetic cylinder or adjust the die-cutting unit, as pre-register settings are automatic with respect to digital or flexo. Monotwin Cut is equipped with a standard gap-master.
The addition of digital to the range of available technologies in Omet’s catalog marks another step into the company’s idea of platform combination.
Marco Calcagni, Sales and Marketing Director of Omet says: “JetPlus is for converters a flexible, economic, compact solution capable of delivering in one stop the upmost quality, the highest productivity and increased savings of time and waste. Such a technology was still missing in the market and we are confident that converters will take the challenge of all-in-one pass production to improve their efficiency on small to long runs.”
