Following it’s BETA outing at Print 17 in Chicago, New Solution is proud to be officially launching the brand new ATOM – a compact label printer, industrially built and designed for short run digital label market. Whether you are a food manufacturer, a print house or commercial printer, the ATOM is one of those printers that will make you wonder how you ever did without it.
Solid steel construction, made in Europe, the ATOM is a high-speed label printer that can print onto either roll-to-roll self-adhesive labels or pre-cut labels. Print resolutions of up to 1600dpi x 800dpi at a speed of 18 meters per minute (12” per second) or 1600dpi x 1600dpi is 9 meters per minute (6” per second) make the ATOM a fast, productive and high quality printer.
“One of the major benefits of the Atom, apart from its’ speed and high quality resolution, is the maintenance station is above the print web – therefore there is no need to cut and splice the web in order to carry out standard print head maintenance,” says Samuel Correia, Technical Manager New Solution.
New Solution will also be launching the second generation printer NS PRO EVO, with new Memjet Niagara inks. The Niagara water-based dye inks give the NS PRO EVO a wider colour gamut, extended head life, better durability and lower cost, therefore offering a lower print cost per label.
Stewart Bell, VP Sales comments, “We are delighted to launch the second generation NS Pro at Label Expo 17, and we are pleased to announce we have an attractive upgrade path for existing users. The NS PRO EVO will deliver lower cost labels with a lower cost of over all ownership with the highest quality on the market. Coupled with our range of medias from our sister brand DECAL, which have been specifically designed for the NS printers, we are confident there is no better combination on the market today for quality, speed and cost.”
The New Solution Multi is a 1.06m (42”) wide flatbed inkjet printer designed specifically to print directly on to paper-based board products i.e. carton and corrugated. Ideal for short run digital print, the Multi allows users to create prototypes, e-commerce packaging, transit packaging printing direct to pre-cut boxes, point of sale and point of purchase.
