Jetrion Customer Success Leads to 93 Percent Boost in Ink Volume for EFI

(PresseBox) (Dusseldorf, Germany, ) EFI(TM) Jetrion® digital label press customers are experiencing rapid growth and an accelerated rate of innovative applications, and as a result, EFI has reported a significant increase in year over year ink sales. With a record 93 percent boost in ink volume for the Jetrion segment alone in Q1 2012, compared with the same quarter last year, these figures are strong confirmation that label converters now rely on the benefits of digital printing and the unique versatility of UV-curable formulations.

Customers are reporting increased production volumes, with many running the printer two to three shifts per day, leading to a faster return on investment. "We originally estimated the Jetrion 4830 would pay for itself in one year, but we're getting even more business than we planned for, so we'll be able to break even in six to nine months," said Gary Astle, vice president of commercial printer Alliance Printing. "And we're not even at full capacity - we're printing labels faster than we can die-cut them."

"Our Jetrion product line is accelerating the transformation of the industry from analog to digital processes, while bringing customers reduced costs and waste, and increased customer satisfaction and responsiveness," comments Sean Skelly, vice president and general manager of EFI Jetrion. "Our new Jetrion 4900 is also encouraging converters to invest in a fully integrated printing and finishing line and the growth in demand for this press is sure to see EFI's UV-curable ink usage continue to rise."
