FOSTER CITY, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With versatility being key to profitable productivity, EFI™ is using this year's Labelexpo to announce the EFI Jetrion® 4950lx LED printer, which brings higher resolution, faster throughput and full LED curing to the Jetrion 4900 product line of modular digital label printing systems. Also on exhibit will be new finishing modules for the Jetrion 4900 product line – a new varnish/lamination module and a new high-power laser cutter, which will be demonstrated on the EFI Jetrion 4900-330. In addition, EFI's web-to-print tool for packaging companies, and packaging ERP/MIS products will be demonstrated at the company's Labelexpo stand.

The new, innovative Jetrion 4950lx LED printer extends the versatile capabilities of EFI's digital label printing systems, and users can now produce more primary applications with a higher image quality of up to 720 x 720dpi and finer, two-point text. Its first-in-class advanced LED curing technology enables thin and traditionally difficult stocks to be printed, increasing the overall flexibility of this machine for the production of flexible packaging and shrink sleeves, all while reducing costs with lower energy usage and significantly longer lamp life.

The new finishing modules for the 4900 printer family being shown on the Jetrion 4900-330 include a varnish/lamination module, which extends the in-line finishing options available on the machine, and a new high-powered laser cutter, available in single-head (500W) or dual-head (1000W) configuration, which provides the speed and versatility for label producers working at widths of 330mm for a fast, precision integrated in-line production system. As with EFI's other finishing modules, both work on either the Jetrion 4900-330 or the Jetrion 4950lx, with EFI continuing to lead with fully integrated, digital narrow web press with inline finishing solutions. In addition, both presses are driven by EFI's Fiery® digital front end for superior performance and color management.

"We needed an industrial machine, which ruled out many of the presses on the market," said Rene Klith, production director at Limo Labels AS, Randers, Denmark. "What impressed us with the Jetrion 4900 was its design that allowed printing and finishing in one pass by one operator. This allows us to offer something different to the toner-based lines. Detailed cost comparisons proved conclusively that it would be more economical to run over the long term, with fast set-up times and the lack of tooling cost. It's the cost per label that counts."

"Only one digital printing machine guarantees the flexibility that our clients increasingly require. For example, if a customer places an order at 4 pm, we are often able to dispatch the digitally printed labels as early as 11 am the next day thanks to our EFI Jetrion press," commented Jan Frederik Vink, managing director of Kolibri Labels, 's Heerenberg, the Netherlands.
