Wide Format Inks and Digital Packaging Capabilities to Carry the Day for INX at SGIA Expo

The SGIA Expo presents many opportunities with the type of audience it attracts, one of the reasons why INX International Ink Co. has continued its Gold sponsorship for years. When the show convenes October 22-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, INX (booth 2346) will be in step with this year’s theme of “Everything goes, and anything is possible.”

INX will feature a Roland® printer technology preview of RXV eco solvent wide format inks, highlight the ESC and MED inks that have enjoyed immense success since being introduced at last year’s show, and demonstrate its digital capability to produce specialized packaging with the CP100 digital cylindrical printer.

“The challenge with the SGIA audience is to find the right type of products. In recent years we’ve been fortunate with the choice of products we have promoted at this show and how well they have been received in the marketplace,” said Susie Mendelssohn, North American Sales Manager and International Marketing Manager for INX Digital.

“By showcasing our ESC and MED wide format inks, we’re hoping to strike lightning two years in a row. Just like with our RXV technology preview and recent new H76 and IOS ink introductions, ESC and MED are designed to work with specific printers. These TRIANGLE® brand wide format products are very cost effective and will benefit any operation. Coupled with the tremendous advantages the CP100 printer brings to the table, SGIA Expo visitors will have plenty of options that will help their businesses flourish.”

The high-performance RXV inks work in tandem with several Roland color printers such as the Roland Soljet™ Pro 4 series – which includes the XR-640™ and XF-640™ – as well as the VersaEXPRESS™ and VersaCAMM™ VSi series. Both color and chemically compatible with the Eco-Sol MAX® 2 OEM inks, RXV offers a neutral balanced grey-scale that is equal to OEM ECO inks. It also exhibits fast dry times with low odor, no flushing or re-profiling is required, and it is supported by INX’s second-to-none Worldwide Outdoor Durability and Ink Train warranties.

The alternative eco solvent ESC inkjet inks work in conjunction with the Epson Stylus® GS6000 commercial outdoor printer and the Epson SureColor® series printers to produce outdoor banners, posters and tradeshow graphics. It also offers added value for use indoors. MED inks are designed to work with the Mimaki® 3042 UV LED flatbed desktop printer. More flexible than Mimaki LH100 series inks, MED is available in six colors plus white, and is compatible with Ricoh Gen 4 print heads.

The CP100 is a certified game changer for anyone looking to create specialized packaging. As part of the company’s EVOLVE™ Advanced Digital Solutions, it is powered by JetINX™ to make it extremely fast. High-speed single or multi-pass through-cured 4-color output combines with an advanced UV LED curing system for best-in-class image quality and outstanding short-run production of cylindrical printing.

The CP100 also relies on Xaar® patented Through-Flow technology that is capable of printing 7 drop sizes ranging from 6-42 pl. With up to 720 x 1000 dpi resolution and using environmentally friendly inks, it can produce proofs and prototypes in a matter of seconds.
