Pitney Bowes Expands IntelliJet Line


Pitney Bowes Inc. has  announced it is expanding its line of high speed digital colour printing systems. The new offering, the Pitney Bowes IntelliJet 20 printing system, will help more companies transition their printed communications from monochrome to colour simply and cost effectively, and communicate more effectively with their audiences. The new system which was on display at Ipex complements the IntelliJet 30 printing system, which Pitney Bowes launched in 2009.


Like the IntelliJet 30 printing system, the new system is the result of a strategic alliance with HP. Offering the same high quality, 1200 x 600 dpi resolution print engine and built-in Pitney Bowes Production Intelligence software, the IntelliJet 20 printing system produces complex transactional statements without compromising speed or quality.  Its 20.5" wide format is sized to replace existing toner based monochrome devices.  Scaled for high volume transactional print and mail customers, the system fits right within their existing environment to deliver 2-up monochrome as well as the full colour variable print they need to expand services.


"For years, enterprise customers and service bureaus have turned to Pitney Bowes for industry leading customer communications solutions," said Leslie Abi-Karam, executive vice president and president, mailing solutions management. "The IntelliJet  20 now allows us to take the ability to integrate variable colour print and mail down market, delivering this same value to a much broader array of customers, both domestically and internationally."


Both the IntelliJet  20 and the IntelliJet  30 printing systems include new features and system enhancements for greater performance and capability. These include:


  • Pitney Bowes IntelliJet  Print Process Manager, a powerful hardware and software solution that maximises the productivity and operational control of IntelliJet printing systems
  • Fully integrated MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) to allow financial institutions to print checks with integrity and security
  • Expanded range of integrated post print accessories that can be configured to support specific mail finishing needs



    Pitney Bowes Production Intelligence software allows mailers to integrate print and mail with one streamlined platform for unprecedented process integration. Independent of page complexity, the IntelliJet 20 printing system can consistently deliver maximum throughput with a print speed of up to 400 feet (122 m) per minute for monochrome; 200 feet (61 m) per minute for colour, with high quality output that is specifically tuned for high speed mail finishing.  Moreover, the IntelliJet 20 printing system can also help turn routine bills and statements into powerful marketing and sales tools
