The Pitney Bowes IntelliJet™ 30 Printing System was the first in the industry to provide a seamless integration of printing and mailing processes, making it possible for large transactional mailers to streamline workflow, consolidate systems, eliminate pre-printed forms and enhance the value of their customer communications. Pitney Bowes and inkjet printing technology leader HP have collaborated on the IntelliJet™ line of printing systems since it was launched in 2009.

“It’s not enough these days to provide the industry’s leading integrated color print and mail solution,” said Tim Moylan, president and general manager for software and production print at Pitney Bowes. “We must constantly innovate and improve what we do because our customers are searching for new ways both to cut expenses and enhance revenues. In this first year since entering the digital color printing market, we have extended the product line by launching the IntelliJet 20 in May of this year and are now making significant enhancements to the IntelliJet 30--giving our customers greater flexibility and scale to meet their business printing needs today and into the future.”

Now, the Pitney Bowes® IntelliJet™ Printing System can consistently print 100% variable data at production speeds of up to 600 feet per minute, with either a 20.5 or 30” wide format, and the same 1200 x 600 dpi color quality. Customers can produce 4-up, 7” wide applications at up to 5,236 impressions per minute, 3-up, 8.5” wide applications at up to 3,928 impressions per minute, and 2-up, 8.5” wide applications at up to 2,618 impressions per minute. Pitney Bowes is taking orders for the IntelliJet™ Systems, with deliveries of 30" wide, 400 feet per minute systems beginning in late 2010.

Attendees at the Graph Expo show will be able to watch a live demonstration of the IntelliJet™ 30 Printing System via simulcast from the Pitney Bowes Customer Innovation Center in Shelton, CT.
