Jetmaster series new benefits on FEFCO 15
Increase productivity and competitiveness, reduce costs and expenses with the Jetmaster Series technology
Since Barberán was awarded the Gold Award in the category of ‘Best Innovation’ at the FEFCO Technical Seminar held in Copenhagen in October 2013, the company has made much progress with its digital printing solution. After installation of the first Jetmaster 1260 at Hinojosa in Xátiva, Spain, at the end of 2013, the company has recently installed a second machine at the Smurfit Kappa plant in Madrid, Spain. The Hinojosa and Smurfit Kappa machines are both working with a maximum printing width of 49” at a production speed of 180ft per min, meaning 3,000 sheets of 40” in length per hour.
Requests from the market for wider printing areas, due to the size of flat bed die-cutters, has seen Barberán further develop its Jetmaster leading to the supply during this last summer of the first Jetmaster 1680, with a 66” printing width, to company Bennett Packaging from the US.
Soon Barberán will even go wider with their 74” wide printer which will be presented during the coming FEFCO technical seminar held in Barcelona during October 2015. The new Jetmaster 1680 and Jetmaster 1890 allow the users to pass the sheets cross ways and optimise sheet sizes for the flat bed die-cutter.
The new printers can be equipped with four or six colours — CMYK and optionally with Light Magenta and Light Cyan. They can also be equipped with the newly designed twin printing technology, where two sheets are printed simultaneously, increasing overall productivity.
Besides the developments in machine size, much work has been done concerning low migration inks. The UV inks used with the Jetmaster gives the highest chroma and thanks to a perfect control of the dot expansion and its four levels of grey, it offers high print quality at the low cost in single pass industrial digital printing.
The machines are equipped with special devices that assure flatness of board during the printing process and with improved electronics which increases speed of data flow, allowing you to move the image while the machine is printing and a lot more making of the Barberán Jetmaster a perfect tool for their customers` printing needs.
During the coming FEFCO event held in Barcelona from the 28th until 30th of October the company Barberán will place at the disposal of all attending clients the possibility to visit its factory and see a life demo run of a digital production line printing sheets up to 3.000 pcs/per hour.
