A new inkjet printer service company, Inkjet Performance, LLC, Atlanta, Ga., has been created to help digital printers reduce costs by extending the useful life of their wide-format and grand-format equipment. The company’s primary services include a proprietary print head recovery process as well as component-level circuit board repair.
“During the past several years, I’ve seen steadily growing interest among sign shops and digital printers in extending the useful service life of their inkjet printers and print heads,” says Inkjet Performance’s CEO, Ed Jemmings. “For some smaller shops, or those with printers no longer qualifying for OEM extended warranty service, it’s often the only practical option they have to keep their business afloat in the current economy. And even larger well-capitalized firms want to save money whenever they can.”
Although Inkjet Performance was founded earlier this year, its founder has more than 38 years of electronics and technical service experience, including eight years as owner of a sister company, Jemmings Business Systems (http://jemmings.com), that provides OEM repair and refurbishment services for a major wide-format printer manufacturer. Earlier in his career, Jemmings also created and managed service networks for Honeywell throughout the US and overseas.
According to Jemmings, Inkjet Performance is differentiated by its ability to perform component-level repair for printer motherboards and other printed circuit boards. Its other key selling point is a proprietary method of recovering clogged inkjet print heads…one that doesn’t utilize traditional ultrasonic cleaning methods.
