The machine is an ultra-highspeed inkjet imprinting solution able to print at speeds of up to 305m/min at 600dpi.

The technology was designed to add monochrome variable data printing to high speed web presses or finishing lines.

According to MCS, the Hayabusa can deliver “offset-like quality while keeping up with press production speeds with little downtime”.

Quick disconnects between the print module and the controller eases the process of moving heads between print stations.

The Hayabusa is built on a decade of success that we’ve had with our Eagle inkjet product line

Kevin Loos, international sales director of MCS, says: “The Hayabusa is built on a decade of success that we’ve had with our Eagle inkjet product line. Imprinting at speeds of 200m/min or greater have been dominated by aging continuous inkjet technologies, we saw an opportunity to introduce an alternative that can bring piezo inkjet’s famous reliability and easy maintenance to this application.

“We worked closely with high-volume printers to design the Hayabusa. They required a solution that reduced their downtime and can be ready to print on demand. The Hayabusa hit both of these points with a head life measured in years, not hours, and a start up time of five minutes.”

MCS’ sister company is Think Ink which means the Hayabusa has a flexible range of inks available to choose from. This includes monochrome inks for coated and uncoated stock, PMS (Pantone Matching System) colour matches, security inks, and MICR (magnetic ink character recognition).
