LexJet to Enter Replacement Solvent Ink Aftermarket

Sunday, April 2, 2006
LexJet announced today that it will begin offering its second line of LexJet aftermarket ink jet ink solutions—LexJet ProSolvent Ink. The ink line comes as an answer to market growth and demand for quality replacements for high priced OEM inks.

“Over the past decade, we have not competed with OEM inks for a variety of reasons,” stated Camillia Mankovich, LexJet’s marketing director. “However, as a result of many years of extensive research and testing, we can now confidently offer a viable alternative ink solution,” Mankovich added.

The initial shipments will consist of inks made and packaged in cartridges in the USA. The inks will be available for wide scale shipment to LexJet customers commencing in May, 2006. LexJet ProSolvent Ink is designed specifically to be used with five printers: the Mimaki, Seiko, Roland, Mutoh, and HP solvent printers. With these new LexJet ProSolvent inks, you get significant savings in ink costs with no conversion steps and easy and exact color-replacement.

“It is of the utmost importance to our customers that LexJet provide them with an ink replacement solution that is simple to implement, free from patent infringement in both the delivery device and the chemical structure of the ink, and is a cost effective product solution,” stated John Lane, LexJet’s vice president. “We have extensively tested this ink solution and will be able to guarantee our customers that the ink is ‘hot swappable’ with OEM inks—requiring no line purging. The ink solution is chemically a ‘plug-n-play” with OEM inks—requiring no modifications in color profiles,” Lane continued.
