A retrofit is a digital print engine that is mounted on top of a third-party piece of analog printing equipment, like a flexo press, to enhance label production. When print providers retrofit a Colordyne Technologies print engine onto their existing equipment, they can continue leveraging current assets and capabilities in their pressroom while incorporating digital print capabilities.   

Colordyne Technologies offers retrofits using the latest in aqueous pigment, aqueous dye and UV/LED technology for digital hybrid printing. Visit the 3800 Series page to learn more about each retrofit option.

Retrofitting allows new and existing analog equipment to incorporate the benefits of full color digital printing, including faster turnaround times, on-demand production and cost-effective versioning. Operators are often trained quickly on the digital equipment and can easily apply their existing flexo-operation knowledge. Plus, retrofitting a digital label printer is an efficient and more affordable alternative to purchasing a standalone hybrid press.

Inkjet integration is the implementation of a digital inkjet engine into an OEM’s system. Unlike an aftermarket retrofit, inkjet integration is a collaborative process where engineers from both companies, the SIP and Colordyne, work together to provide the best print solution for the target end users. This process allows both companies to leverage their strengths to provide a seamless solution with advanced functionality and versatility.
