Colormax logo

The ColorMax 7 Digital Color Printer uses the latest in inkjet technology to produce fullcolor output at three times the speed of traditional shuttle head printers, at one third the per-page cost. Its Memjet® print head has 70,400 ink nozzles and no moving parts, which offers higher speeds, lower ink and maintenance costs and less noise.

The ColorMax 7 produces full-color CMYK output, up to 16.8 million colors, on a variety of paper stocks and sizes (see back side for examples), with full-bleed capability on media up to 8.5” wide. It can print 1600 x 1600 dpi at 6 inches per second, and 1600 x 800 dpi at 12 inches per second.
With its thermal inkjet technology, it doesn’t require heat or contact to create an image, so it can safely be used with pre-printed envelopes and windowed envelopes without damaging the window or marring the original image. High-capacity ink tanks and fullyautomated
print head cleaning ensure optimum print quality throughout print runs.
