Xennia’s (www.xennia.com) new Aquamarine is an inkjet printer designed to print full-color graphics, logos, barcodes, and other data onto the sides of rigid boxes, cartons, and other types of packaging. The system uses UV or solvent inks and prints onto two opposing vertical sides of rigid EPS boxes, chill boxes, bottle crates, transit packs, plastic trays, and other secondary packaging. Aquamarine supports a maximum print height of 4.7 in. (120 mm) and speeds up to 131.2 ft/min (40 m/min), which Xennia says is the equivalent to more than 1800 boxes/hr using 31.5-in. (800-mm) boxes. Automated maintenance and variable-data printing are also available. The system includes a substrate-transport conveyor, and it can be used as a standalone printing system or integrated into a production line.
