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.

Operators 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.

The 3800 Series WB leverages Kao’s LUNAJET proprietary nanodispersion ink technology which increases pigment concentration so the ink can spread evenly over the surface.

  • Reduce the amount of ink on material surfaces, making drying exceptionally fast for superior printing results
  • Extremely low amounts of volatile organic compounds emissions (VOCs), significantly lowering its impact on workspaces and the environment.
  • Faster job production and less waste and downtime.
  • Colordyne’s water-based inks offer high quality and color versatility that is unrivaled by most inkjet press manufacturers.
