Memjet and MGI form strategic partnership

December 4, 2018

Memjet has announced that MGI Digital Technology has integrated Memjet’s DuraLink printing technology into its new AlphaJET B1 Inkjet Printing and Embellishment Press. 

This is the first 40-plus-inch sheet-fed press to integrate the DuraLink inkjet printheads, ink and modules. It is also the first five-colour digital printing system to offer decorative special effects such as 2D/3D UV dimensional textures and variable embossed foil. MGI is previewing the AlphaJET this week at the All4Pack Exhibition in Paris, France.

“The launch of the AlphaJET comes at a time when print markets are experiencing a high demand for inline digital printing, embellishment and finishing,” said Eric Owen, General Manager at Memjet. “To capture that opportunity, MGI chose the modular nature of DuraLink — its extremely fast speeds, 1600 by 1600 resolution and affordable cost — to develop an industry-changing solution. This is a valuable partnership for MGI, Memjet and the print market as a whole.”

Michael Abergel, MGI’s Managing Director, said, “Memjet has developed superb core technology with the DuraLink architecture and ink modules. In addition, their teamwork and technical support for the AlphaJET product has allowed us to quickly achieve unprecedented functional advancements. The AlphaJET has been designed to introduce a new model of printing, packaging and finishing productivity. For such an important product, we found an ideal business partner in Memjet. They understand the spirit of innovation that drives MGI.”

The AlphaJET consolidates the functionality of traditionally separate, disconnected operational workflows such as primer coating, printing and embellishment and converting them into a single, combined “All-in-One” Industrial Print Factory for complete job management.

The AlphaJET utilises the new Memjet DuraLink ink, modules and printheads for CMYK colour impressions with 1600 dpi resolution. The white and clear varnish inks use UV inkjet technology for a revolutionary best-of-breed convergence of digital-printing methods. This array of high-speed ink deposition processes allows the AlphaJET to both print and embellish corrugated flute board, paper, plastic and synthetic substrates at 1,800 B1 sheets (70.7 x 100cm/28 x 40”) per hour.

“The partnership with MGI is the latest in a series of agreements Memjet has announced in recent months,” said Owen. “We look forward to sharing more DuraLink developments throughout 2019.”
