At this month’s On Demand show in Philadelphia, Rena Systems (Oaks, PA) showed a tabletop addressing system based on a page-wide, CMYK head from Memjet (San Diego, CA). Rena says the printer, the name of which is unreleased, is planned to be commercially available by the end of this year. If so, the printer could be the first Memjet-based printer to be marketed for any application.

Memjet is the product development and head manufacturing enterprise charged with implementing print systems of various types based on the inkjet technology patents of Silverbrook Research (Balmain, Australia). Rena Systems, founded in 1984, is a leading manufacturer of inkjet addressing systems based on monochrome thermal inkjet heads from Hewlett-Packard; in 2009, Rena Systems was acquired by Neopost USA (Milford, CT), a major maker of inserters and other mailing equipment.
