MAR Graphics Installs Color Inkjet System

MAR Graphics has just completed the installation of a Memjet / SuperWeb Digital color inkjet system.  The full color system is capable of laying down ink at speeds of up to 160 feet per minute and up to a 1600 x 1200 dpi resolution.  This piece of equipment allows MAR to produce fully variable color images on a web based system and is currently integrated into a 6 color flexo press.

Color inkjet systems are projected to be responsible for producing 30% of all digital color print within the next 2 years.  This particular inkjet system is MAR’s 4th installation of inkjet technology in the past 4 years, though this is the first full-color inkjet system installation in the facility.
