Rena Mach 5DX Digital Color Duplex Envelope Printer

Rena Mach 5DX Digital Color Duplex Envelope Printer

Rena by Neopost have added duplex ability to the Mach 5! It's the same exceptional technology from Memjet, but this time, it can print on both sides! 

The Mach 5DX is capable of printing full color at 6 inches per second and an amazing 1600 x 1600 dots per inch. The faster option is 1600 x 800 dpi at 12 inches per second. These speeds are both for single and double-sided printing. The Mach 5DX is still packed with the same Memjet five ink channels (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Black, and Black) and the same single 8.77” wide print bar. Inside these channels is a whopping 70,400 nozzles from which the ink is sprayed onto the substrate.

The five ink tanks each hold 250 mL of ink for long job runs and low cost per piece. If your business is looking for a machine that will produce short runs, the Mach 5 is perfect for that as well. Print what you need, when you need it. It will eliminate outdated cardstock and free you up on storage.

When paired with mColor, a color management software, you can match the exact color of your company's logo in no time using spot color adjustment.

Wedding, Birthday, Holiday Card and Special Event Invitation Printing

The RENA Mach 5DX prints the high quality formal invitations and envelopes for events such as weddings and reunions in full high resolution color and deep saturated black fonts and creative cursives. It prints high resolution graphics and text at high speed, ideal for the short run production of Holiday Cards with variable data such as address and colorful family holiday pictures in one pass.

Mail Addressing and Barcoding

Postage Printing

The RENA Mach 5DX can print paid Postage in the form of Prepaid Postal Permit (in dazzling color for higher response) or downloadable variable or static postage provided by PC postage providers.

Invoices With Variable Data and Trans-Promo

The RENA Mach 5DX can print Variable Data and Trans-promotional messages in one pass in high quality high resolution color for items such as invoices, statements and customer notices at industry leading costs per piece.

Cut Sheet Single Labels For Shipping Items

The RENA Mach 5DX prints vibrant color shipping labels and information for delivery on cut sheet labels at high speed in high resolution color. Digital color means no setup cost and low volume customized labels are now economical.

Printing On Windowed Envelopes

The RENA Mach 5DX can print on previously laser printed or regular windowed envelopes since it does not use heat to print the items and will not affect the print already on the piece nor melt the window of an envelope. Ideally suited, it is perfect for items that need to be printed over that have been through a Laser printed machine, or windowed envelope of any size or type.

mColor RIP & Workflow Software for the Mach 5 Digital Printer

Print like a professional and increase productivity

Rena System's optional mColor RIP & Workflow Software incorporates color management tools, production job presets, hot folders and the powerful Harlequin RIP engine into one workflow product.  mColor delivers predictable and repeatable standardization of color and improves overall image quality.

With its easy-to-use job workflow interface, mColor provides the tools to automate production, manage jobs and deliver professional color quality control to both businesses and commercial printers

Advanced Color Management and Spot Matching

The mColor RIP provides the tools to edit spot color without being an Adobe Photoshop or color expert.  Adapt spot color to match existing color specifications painlessly.  mColor identifies colors in your image automatically.  From there, the user can print out color swatches on their material for comparison, adjust the colors, save the changes per job or globally, then go print.

ICC Profiles

Built in ICC color profiles ensure the best possible output on a wide variety of papers including commodity grade envelopes, standard office paper, inkjet gloss and matte finish paper and inkjet envelopes.  The examples shown reflect the difference of one file printed by the Mach 5 on the same grade envelope, using the Windows driver versus mColor software

Harlequin RIP Technology

For commercial printing you need robust and reliable RIP software that gives high performance, quality and efficiency.  That's why we built mColor around the state-of-the-art Harlequin RIP - the expert printer's choice.  mColor's integrated Harlequin RIP provides the performance and productivity to maximize output quality from the Mach 5.

Workflow Productivity

Submit, manage and preview jobs anywhere on the network from a Mac or PC.  Store and save print files and configurations for future use, making repeat jobs quick and easy.
