Arrow Digital launches digital overprinting system for corrugation

Arrow Digital has launched its latest innovation, the Arrow OverJet, a single-pass overprinting system using Memjet’s DuraFlex engine that works with automatic feeders to pass the ink-receptive print media. The machine can produce a variety of substrates without the limitations of needing a varnish.

Sam Patel, managing director and CEO of Arrow Digital said, "This narrow format overprinting system is the answer to your business needs. Arrow OverJet utilises Memjet’s DuraFlex technology to bring your business an efficient, automated workflow for the most demanding customised short to medium run jobs without forgoing the 1600x1600 dpi quality. This digital overprinting system (15-inch conveyor width) takes water-based pigment inkjet receptive surfaces such as postcards, paper bags or folded boxes and economically applies vibrant, durable pigmented ink. The colored prints boast longevity, durability and resistance to water, scratching or fading." 

Arrow OverJet features innovative technology like anti-crash sensors that prevent media from colliding with the printhead. It also allows adjustable media guides on the feeding end to give an array of different opportunities.

"The Arrow OverJet utilises a pressure-sensitive entry plate that allows for continuous printing without the need to adjust the media height as you move between jobs. The seamless transition between jobs and ease of use allows the machine to increase efficiency. The automatic height allows it to continuously print at speeds of up to 150 feet per minute. It reduces machine downtime between runs saving you both time and money to meet customer demands," added Patel.

Memjet’s water-based pigmented inkjet inks supports the recycling of printed corrugated materials and will not create toxic waste in streams.

Patel concluded, "The end users are becoming more demanding with each passing day, they need customization, vibrant colors, sustainable solutions, variable data possibilities, short runs, this is only possible if you adopt a digital environment friendly technology. Arrow OverJet is the only answer to all these options."

The Arrow OverJet is a narrow format overprinting system which can produce a variety of substrates without the need of limitation. The digital printer is ideal for high volumes, short runs as well as production. The fast-cycle prototyping produces proofs that reflect final product quality with 100% accuracy. The just-in-time production improves capacity utilisation, lowers work-in-progress inventory, reduces out-of-stocks, and streamlines the supply chain.
