With an effective speed of 500 B1 sheets per hour, the Vortex 4200 printer forms a useful adjunct to traditional analog print methodology (litho, screen print, flexo). The low set-up time and zero cost of setup means that short runs are now possible and cost-effective. Combine this with the fact that each sheet can contain variable data, and this makes previously impossible jobs now possible. And all this with a small footprint and low power consumption.
