Getting into Digital: AutoMate's First Inkjet Retrofit

AutoMate Label Solution is a national provider of label solutions and specialty packaging products headquartered in Houston, TX. The label provider recently installed a Colordyne 17-inch UV inkjet engine in its Burlington, NC location. This marks the beginning of the converter's digital journey. The new inkjet engine is retrofitted on a Mark Andy P5 flexo Press

Prior to meeting Colordyne, AutoMate had no prior digital equipment or experience when their team and Colordyne met at an industry tradeshow. Automate was exploring available solutions in the market for digital or hybrid label production and found in Colordyne's team and technology the perfect partner.

"We quickly realize that the way to stay ahead in the printing game was to integrate digital capabilities," said Mike Coplin, Plant Manager at AutoMate Label Solutions. "The cost-effective advantage that the Colordyne engines presented was unbeatable, so we are excited to be partnering with them."

Colordyne team of expert engineers and technicians have worked closely with the AutoMate team before, during and after the installation process earlier this year. Recently, a Colordyne press operator was on-site at AutoMate's Burlington, NC location training the AutoMate team.

“We are excited to see what the AutoMate team is able to achieve with the new inkjet print capabilities,” said Taylor Buckthorpe, Director of Sales and Marketing at Colordyne Technologies. “It's always a great feeling to witness when a customer understands the value inkjet technology brings to print businesses in today's market.”

Label converters and print providers can retrofit a digital print engine onto existing flexo equipment without major disruptions to current operations. Colordyne Technologies offers retrofit options using UV LED, aqueous dye, aqueous pigment inkjet technology.
