The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association's (SGIA) Expo always attracts a crowd and this year should be no exception. INX Digital International Co. has recognized this and supported both the event and industry, introducing new products that are relevant and timely to specialty imagers. INX Digital (booth #3249) will fortify its Gold sponsorship with the debut of two Green and environmentally conscious products when the SGIA Expo is held October 13-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
SGIA will mark the North American launch of Triangle ECO inks and the Eco Bulk ink delivery system. EDX is a new line of eco solvent inks and represents the first time INX Digital's Triangle brand has developed a colour and chemically compatible product for the alternative market. The dual compatibility allows users to perform cartridge-by-cartridge changeover without wasting ink, and new colour profiles are not required in order to obtain the same colour as OEM inks when printing. Designed for Roland printers with Epson DX4 print head technology, EDX is an extremely fast drying ink with low odour. Both HAPS- and TAPS-free, it offers a significant cost savings compared to OEM eco inks.
Eco Bulk is a new type of ink delivery system and a prime example of INX Digital's long-term commitment to developing sustainable products. As an integral part of INX Digital's Green recycling programme, it is easy to use and features a unique cardboard box design that consists of 100 percent recycled material.
Eco Bulk is comprised of one box instead of five, 440 ml cartridges, with the ink housed within a foil bag. Once emptied, the bag is disposed of and replaced, a more sustainable approach compared to plastic. The foil bag can contain up to two litres of ink, double the current industry standard of one litre packaging and resulting in less waste, but 440 ml cartridges will remain available for customers using less ink. A test programme showed that more volume allows for greater consistency of the product being delivered through the network.
