Low Cost

You can significantly reduce your capital investment and get into digital and hybrid printing with a Colordyne Inkjet engine, rather than investing in a standalone digital press.

Leverage All Tooling

You don't need to worry about having to reinvest in new tooling. Keep utilizing all of your dyes and press-converting accessories.

Press Functionality

Retrofitting a Colordyne inkjet doesn't reduce any of the functionality of your existing press. You'll be able to leverage digital, run flexo, or combine both for hybrid label production.

Single Pass Converting

By retrofitting an inkjet engine you can prime, digital print, varnish, laminate, and die cut all in one single pass, saving you time and money.

Hybrid Printing

Colordyne's approach to hybrid allows you to register every flexo station on the press, allowing for simple or complex printing applications.

Operator Knowledge

Your operator already knows this press like the back of their hand. That knowledge remains relevant with the addition of a Colordyne inkjet engine.
