AMS Mailing Systems will use this year’s edition of The Print Show to launch the new Memjet S1 colour digital printer to the market.

The envelope and packaging printer is a desktop model that can print full colour on to heavy stock up to 1cm in thickness, 215mm wide and 762mm in length.

Currently exclusive to AMS in the UK, the machine can print full process colour at speeds of up to 7,500 A5 sheets per hour.

Additional features include five high capacity ink tanks that each hold 250ml of ink, as well as a high-resolution touchscreen display with an integrated control centre.

Peter Fiorentini, managing director of AMS, says “This is an exciting time for AMS. As a mailing equipment specialist, we are proud to be launching the multi-purpose heavy stock S1 printer which will not only enable printers and mailing houses to print on to thick envelopes, but offers other packaging markets the ability to produce quality print on thick stock such as kraft bags and pouches.”

The Print Show 2018 takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from September 18th to 20th.
