anytron (Bitek Technology) a South Korean equipment manufacturer has launched any-JET II, a digital press with in-line finishing options developed for the label and flexible packaging markets.
The new any-JET II, powered by Memjet inkjet printing technology, offers in-line finishing capabilities, 1600x1600 DPI resolution with lamination and custom label shapes and sizes with laser die-cutting. It supports variable printing and cutting speed between 3 and 18m/min (9.8 and 59 ft/min) depending on the label design.
This all-in-one machine also includes a wide range of functions such as over-laminating, laser die-cutting, matrix removal and slitting. It can be additionally utilized for flexible packaging printing and laser scribing for easy opening, microwave steam release feature pouches.
One of the new developments in any-Flow, an integrated workflow and RIP software allowing to control the printer and laser die-cutter with integrated user interface. It extracts cutting lines from printing design and automatically sends this information to the laser die-cutter. Furthermore, the embedded automatic job changeover function enables changing print job automatically by reading a QR code.

Not only will it enhance the production capacity, but it will also expand the flexibility of applications,’ said Brian Kim, sales manager of anytron. The idea behind our in-line system is to cut the preparation time by up to 20 percent. This innovative technology eliminates waste and improves lead times, increases flexibility to support personalisation and highly variable applications with just-in-time delivery.’
