Avery Dennison has added CMYK ink printing capabilities to its TrafficJet 1638 Printer, to 'deliver an even greater range of flexibility and functionality to the reflective digital sign printing system for traffic and workzone applications'. The TrafficJet 1638 is capable of printing CMYK inks and TrafficJet spot inks at the same time. This enhancement will allow the addition of custom graphics or logos to traffic signs; and the ability to create commercial signs on both reflective and vinyl graphics media.
“Continuous improvement is key to staying ahead of the curve. The addition of CMYK functionality to the TrafficJet 1638 printer provides significant value to what is already the reflective industry’s most cost-effective traffic sign printing system,” said John Peck, global technical product manager at Avery Dennison.
“We are excited about the ongoing evolution in our industry already underway with digital printing, and we’re proud to remain at the forefront with additions like this that continue to enhance the technology.”
The newly-added Mutoh Eco Ultra CMYK inks with overlay will provide a life expectancy similar to that already available in the graphics industry. The TrafficJet spot inks continue to carry the same warranty period of the underlying reflective sheeting when combined with Avery Dennison clear overlay film. They are designed to meet a variety of industry standards for reflectivity and durability. To facilitate this improvement, Avery Dennison has teamed with SAi, developer of the Mutoh Edition FlexiPrint DX, to provide a driver update to newer software versions.
TrafficJet is a complete inkjet printing system for traffic safety and reflective sign producers as well as government agencies that produce or purchase signage. Avery Dennison is the only eco-solvent inkjet system provider offering a complete 10- and 12-year-warranted inkjet printing solution, complete with equipment, ink and reflective sheeting for both permanent and workzone signage.
