Pitney Bowes Doubles IntelliJet 20™ Printing System Speed
System Offers a Competitive Edge for Print Service Providers, Sets New Benchmark for Production Print Flexibility and Performance
STAMFORD, Conn., September 12, 2011 - Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) today announced the IntelliJet™ 20 Printing System will now have an optional 400-feet per minute print speed for producing four-color, customer communications. This important speed and flexibility enhancement can help high-volume transactional mailers and service bureaus extend the performance range of the system to improve run times for meeting critical print production deadlines. Pitney Bowes will feature a live simulcast of the IntelliJet 20 Printing System in a production environment at its Booth #2010 at Graph Expo 2011.
The IntelliJet 20 Printing System helps companies transition their printed communications from monochrome to vibrant color simply and cost-effectively so they can communicate more effectively with their customers. The Pitney Bowes® IntelliJet™ Printing System can consistently print color, 100-percent variable data at production speeds of up to 400-feet per minute. The system prints with full black density across the entire speed range and varying color density dependent on print speed. The system prints at its 1,200 nozzles-per-inch native resolution regardless of print speed. Available as an option on new systems or as an upgrade to help customers protect their investment as their business needs change, this enhancement provides flexibility for customers to make choices on optimizing performance, visual appearance and production costs for each of their transactional communications.
“Our high-volume transactional mailing customers are constantly looking for ways to boost productivity, and better manage costs,” said Ramesh Ratan, president of Pitney Bowes Document Messaging Technologies. “The enhancement to our IntelliJet 20 Printing System can help mailers gain a competitive edge through greater control over productivity and economics, thereby providing greater flexibility to produce cost-effective and more valuable, personal color communications.”
The Pitney Bowes® IntelliJet Print Process Manager powers the IntelliJet 20 Printing System to produce highly complex transactional statements without compromising speed. The IntelliJet 20 Printing System leverages proven HP inkjet technology to produce high-quality customer communications. The system offers 1,200 nozzles-per-inch native resolution and nozzle redundancy for robust print quality. The system’s 20.5-inch-wide format is sized to replace existing toner-based monochrome devices. Scaled for high-volume transactional print and mail customers, the IntelliJet 20 Printing System fits right within an existing environment to deliver 2-up monochrome, as well as the full-color variable print and Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) they need to expand services.
