Solara ion inkjet printer delay rectified

South Windsor, Conn.-based Gerber Scientific denies additional difficulties with a key technology underlying its new Solara ion inkjet printer. Gerber Scientific Products head of advanced technology, John LaFleche says, “the delay is not related to the underlying cationic ink technology,” The cationic ink involves exposure to ultra-violate light to complete the printing process.

LaFleche said that Gerber has overcome the challenges of working with cationic ink, “primarily maintaining ink stability and protecting the UV inkjet print heads from UV exposure, which can result in premature print head failure.” The delay in the introduction of the new printer was caused by the testing of electronic components, which took longer than expected.
