FOSTER CITY, Calif., Sept. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Labelexpo -- EFI™ Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today unveiled the new Jetrion® 4900M UV digital inkjet printing system, combining the performance of EFI's existing family of Jetrion UV digital presses with the flexibility of industrial inline web finishing. EFI is also announcing the 4900M-330, which features a 13-inch print width for increased productivity, profitability, and an expanded range of applications. The Jetrion 4900M and 4900M-330 will be shown in EFI's booth (#6423) at Labelexpo Americas, scheduled for September 11-13 in Rosemont, Illinois. "We believe that the 4900M's modular platform will position label converters to address head-on today's challenges while providing an upgradable platform for business growth as the label market continues to evolve from analog to digital," said Sean Skelly, vice president and general manager of EFI Jetrion. "The wider form factor at 13 inches is a direct response to customer feedback and market demand. We are very excited to be bringing both of these new offerings to Labelexpo." Lean Manufacturing Enabled for Today with Upgradable Path for the Future Until now, production of labels, whether flexo or digital, has required multiple production steps. The new Jetrion 4900M Series changes the game, with modular integration of finishing capabilities that result in the delivery of a finished product in a single operation, removing time and cost from the manufacturing process. This is especially critical for label converters who wish to remain competitive as both lot sizes and cycle times continue to diminish. The 4900M Series' modular design means that additional capabilities can be added as they become available or are needed, thus future-proofing this investment. Voice of the Customer "We have been partnering with EFI for some time," said Brian Rhoades, general manager of WS Packaging Group - Consolidated Products, Inc. "We started with a Jetrion 4830, were an early installation site for the 4900 and utilize EFI's Fiery® XF RIP to ensure color integrity between the presses. With the Jetrion 4900, we can print a million labels with 25 different SKUs back to back with a single set-up. It gives us the ability to respond to customer needs in a short timeframe without the added cost of dies or plates. My press doesn't stop running. That saves a huge amount of time and money, and gives our customers the peace of mind they require."
