TechNova – Memjet tie-up to offer SmartJet Label Kit
TechNova has signed an agreement with San Diego-based digital printhead manfacturer Memjet to manufacture printing solutions for the label segment.
The first prototype device to be launched as a result of this tie-up, the SmartJet LP 112 Digital Label Press, was one of the star products at TechNova’s stand at PAMEX 2013.

This alliance is a significant step for TechNova, and re-affirms TechNova’s committment to offer Indian customers innovative digital solutions.

Mr. Pranav Parikh, CMD, TechNova, states, "Memjet was our first and last choice for an alliance in the digital labels segment. Their business model of providing printheads to OEM partners suits us perfectly, as the printheads can be applied to various applications, depending on our requirements."

Ms. Maureen Brock, VP, Business Development (Asia Pacific), Memjet added, "Memjet offers technologies that make digital colour printing amazingly fast, affordable and efficient. We have tied up with several partners to promote our technologies globally. TechNova's strong reach in the Indian sub-continent and their commitment to design products specifically for Indian customers, makes TechNova a preferred partner for us."

The SmartJet LP 112 device works on Memjet’s patented Single Pass "waterfall" nano-technology. The system can achieve a maximum print speed of 12 inches / second at 1600 x 800 dpi, making it one of the fastest in its category. At the highest print resolution of 1600x1600 dpi, the printer can print 6 inches / second. Thanks to Memjet’s unique printhead nozzles, the device can achieve fast speeds without compromising quality output.

According to Mr. Swarnangka, Chief Operating Officer – Digital Imaging Solutions, the SmartJet LP 112 Digital Printer is ideally suited for high-speed high-res print-on-demand labels on various media types with capabilities to change the content on the fly. This includes applications like pressure-sensitive labels, retail tags, professional documents and many other applications. He also added that the prototype had generated tremendous response at Pamex 2013, and the actual system, which is made in India, would be available for dispatch from February 2014.
