Screen Graphic Solutions is entering the European flexible packaging market with the its new Truepress PAC830F.
The inkjet printer - expected to be available for demonstrations in the next few months, with the first press shipped later this year - can handle substrates of up to 830mm wide and run at up to 75m/min. It offers a print resolution of 1,200dpi using CMYK and white water-based inks.
“The flexible packaging industry is experiencing a digital transformation,” said Juan Cano, Screen Europe’s business development director, flexible packaging. “Average run length is decreasing and brand owners are demanding shorter turnaround times with a higher degree of product diversification (more SKUs), segmentation and versioning to satisfy their needs for promotional campaigns, seasonal products, and more relevant content. That means lower volume print runs but ordered more frequently. Only equipment with a 100% inkjet digital print engine can meet these requirements efficiently.
“The Truepress PAC830F has been specifically designed to produce short printing runs in a cost-effective manner at 75 m/min and the ability to print up to 20-22 jobs per day.”
