Schaumburg, IL. – April 18, 2017 – When InPrint USA is held for
the first time April 25-27 at the Orange County Convention Center in
Orlando, INX Digital (booth 1431) will have speed on the agenda. The
ultra-fast AnaJet m-Power i-series digital apparel printer and CP100 UV
digital cylindrical printer are powered by the highly efficient JetINX™
Printhead Drive Electronics and Ink Recirculation systems. A separate
SLED test machine accelerates the process to deliver products to market.
And booth visitors can expect to find unique home décor and packaging
displays courtesy of Prodigy™ brand inks.
The AnaJet printer is industrial strength and one of the fastest
Direct-to-Garment printers in the industry. Built for high volume
production, it is considered to be the most durable printer in its class
and prints a 12” x 10” graphic on black and dark garments in just 40
seconds, thanks to JetINX. One pass is used for the white base before
the second color pass is applied.
Jim Lambert, VP, General Manager – Digital Division of INX
International Ink Co., said the company’s relationship with AnaJet and
the digital apparel printer dates back to 2009.
“We began negotiations with AnaJet at the time to build a new line
of printers. In February 2010, we signed a development agreement for
this new line and the birth of m-Power. For the smaller desktop style
Direct-to-Garment printers, it is one of the fastest on the market. It
has a really nice compact design that is extremely well thought out.
There is a good reason why there are so many m-Power5 and m-Power10s
installations, and that’s because it is one of the best,” said Lambert,
who indicated the JetINX parts and components designed for this machine
“They were in the form of drive electronics for the Ricoh Gen 4
printhead, the carriage controller board, motion controllers and
customized Linux operating executables that run natively on Linux
kernel-based operating software,” informed Lambert. “Over time, we have
gradually improved and refined the JetINX engine. That has impacted the
CP100, which we originally introduced in 2010.”
Whereas the AnaJet printer is a solid choice for sign and large
format vendors and custom T-shirt shops, and screen printers, the
upgraded CP100 UV digital cylindrical printer is ideal for promotional
products distributors and others. Both it and the SLED are built to meet
the growing demand for Direct-to-Object printing in industrial markets.
Most importantly, Lambert notes these machines allow designers and
brand owners to produce cost efficient short runs, proofs and prototypes
with Direct-to-Object printing.
“The CP100 is a natural for the drinkware, cosmetic and industrial
printing industries. It comes equipped with the newest patent pending
helical printing software and delivers exceptional quality single or
multiple-color images at very high speeds. And it’s fast; it can produce
a sample or prototype in only a few seconds,” said Lambert.
“The SLED machine is a cost affordable test and demonstration
device. It’s a single pass machine that examines inks and chemistries in
different fluid delivery systems. It also can test printheads and
various ink sets, and gives you the ability to look at how the ink is
responding to a variety of substrates and materials.”
Lambert said INX Digital’s Prodigy water-based, UV Curable and
solvent inks will be on display in the booth. Designed for use on
demanding industrial applications, these inks can be found in the home
décor and packaging settings. Prodigy’s textile pigment inks were used
to print the furniture, pillow covers, dresser panels and fabrics in the
home décor display. Pigmented inks were also used on the corrugated and
folding cartons stored on shelves in the packaging exhibit. Learn more

representative in booth 1431.
