Allen Datagraph Systems Inc. (ADSI) announces the launch of a revolutionary new product for the printing and finishing of high-quality, short-run labels on a wide variety of substrates: The iTech AXXIS Digital Label System.
"Many small-to-medium-sized companies have the need for high quality labels. However the cost associated with purchasing small quantities of high quality labels is one of the biggest issues these companies have to resolve - while still offering products that are appealing to the consumer at the point of sale. Until today, they had only a few options," explains Mark Vanover, VP Sales and Marketing at ADSI. "They were required to purchase labels in large quantities creating inventory that may never be used, or they paid a high premium for short-run labels - both options decreasing their profitability. Their last option was to use inferior pre-cut label solutions. We believe that the iTech AXXIS Digital Label System represents a paradigm-shift in label manufacturing by offering a complete desktop label production system printing high quality labels at an astonishingly low cost per label to produce."
The iTech AXXIS Digital Label System, designed and assembled in the U.S., is comprised of both the iTech AXXIS Digital Label Printer, a high-resolution (5760 x 1440 dpi) roll-fed CMYK print engine featuring variable-droplet technology, and the iTech AXXIS Digital Label Finisher that laminates, integrates die-less die cutting, and both strips and rewinds the label roll. Printing on substrate widths from 100 mm to 220 mm with an outside roll diameter up to 280 mm, the system images at up to 100 mm a second - or 6 meters per minute.
The complete iTech AXXIS Digital Label System, small enough to fit on a desktop yet engineered to handle high-productivity throughput, is priced at under Euro 25,000 in Europe. "No other label system can offer the features of the iTech AXXIS Digital Label System for anything close to that investment," continues Vanover. "We're turning the industry's assumptions of label production on its head by bringing affordable digital label manufacturing within reach of everyone. We believe the iTech AXXIS Digital Label System enables every converter to never have to walk away from their customers short-run label production needs again."
The first showing of the iTech AXXIS Digital Label System will be on the Epson America booth (7328) at Print '09, September 11-16, Chicago IL. (www.print09.com). The official launch of the iTech AXXIS Digital Label System will be on the ADSI booth (9F48) at Labelexpo Europe 2009, September 23 - 26, Brussels, Belgium (www.labelexpo-europe.com), the world's largest event for the label, product decoration, web printing and converting industry.
