Colordyne and Adphos collaborated on a dryer tailored to meet the specific needs of Colordyne’s ChromaPlex LT print engine. The NIR30-375-E dryer, designed and manufactured by Adphos, will be available through Colordyne and its strategic integration partners (SIPs).
Colordyne engaged Adphos to develop a 13-inch, dual emitter dryer using the company’s patented aNIR technology. The goal was to expand the existing partnership between the companies by working together on a solution dedicated to Colordyne’s ChromaPlex LT engine, powered by Memjet’s DuraFlex printhead technology.
John Urban, Director of Engineering at Colordyne said, “When taking on this project, we wanted to ensure that we would meet the performance needs of the end-user while also delivering a cost-effective dryer for our SIPs. We were already working with Adphos on drying technology for our ChromaPlex AP engine and knew they could meet these requirements.” Urban added, “Adphos has been a great partner to Colordyne, and we know they will continue to support us and our SIPs as we bring the NIR30 dryer to market.”
This dryer helps end-users print on a greater variety of substrates using Colordyne’s full color water-based pigment inkjet technology. The NIR30-375-E was designed with the Chromaplex LT’s ink chemistry, print speeds and potential applications in mind. This tailored approach allows for high productivity at an affordable price point.
John Palazzolo, Director of Marketing and Sales at Adphos North America shared, “We were excited to expand our relationship with Colordyne. Together we can deliver a compact, high-performance inkjet printing and drying technology to partners in markets like labels and packaging.” Palazzolo added, “We look forward to working with and supporting Colordyne’s SIPs during their integration process.”
The 13-inch dryer will be commercially available for Colordyne SIPs starting September 27, 2021. Colordyne will also offer this technology directly to end-users of its 2800 Series AP – Retrofit.
