Digital Printing Press
The ColorJet DPP is high-speed, high-resolution, full color, single-pass digital printing press. A complete digital inkjet module designed to be integrated simply and quickly with your existing flexo press giving you instant full-color print with zero set up times. The unit runs at typical flexo speeds of up to 120 meters/min. with no reduction in print quality.

With no set up times, the ColorJet DPP has proven to be more economical than flexo for run lengths up to 50,000 labels. In addition with our new low-cost, flexo primers you can produce excellent results on the cheapest label stocks.

The DPP Label Creation Software and RIP includes full variable print functions including bar codes, date codes,
serialization schemes and the ability to create labels automatically from a database in real time. A standard
full-color RIP is included. This includes ICC Profiles and multi-page PDF capabilities as well. The system is
easily synchronized with existing die-cutters as well as pre-printed materials.
