Digital Printing-Hybrid - Retrofit
Mark Andy has launched Digital Plus Variable (DPV), a simple and cost-effective inkjet module that adds single-color variable data to virtually any new or existing digital, flexo, or finishing machine.
In this webinar, we’ll hear from two package and label printers that have successfully implemented hybrid printing technology.
Over the past few years, hybrid solutions that combine digital and conventional printing have emerged as viable platforms to leverage the best attributes of each technology. Check out these audio clips from the Digital Packaging Summit of leading suppliers discussing the advantages that hybrid printing can provide.
SUN Automation Group has announced the release of the SUN Spectrum Print Unit for Inside Printing. The SUN Spectrum Print Unit enables customers to single pass print on both sides of a corrugated box, allowing for custom messaging and branding on the inside of the box.
The third annual Digital Packaging Summit will provide opportunities for converters, brand owners and suppliers to network and share their perspectives on digital printing in packaging. The Summit will be held from Oct. 23-25 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
Mark Andy will be highlighting its latest portfolio of innovations at Labelexpo Europe, including its updated Performance Series P7 flexo press, Digital Plus Screen retrofit unit, Digital Series flexo/inkjet hybrid press and Digital One, an affordable, standalone digital label press.
Mark Andy will debut Digital Plus Screen, an in-line module that serves as a digital alternative to traditional rotary screen printing. The module integrates single color digital UV inkjet printing with the high-production Performance Series platform.
Hybrid printing solutions that combine digital and conventional technologies have gained a great deal of attention in the packaging industry. However, converters don't have to buy a new press to experience the hybrid benefits. Three converters shared their experiences with digital retrofit options.
Prairie State Group, a printer and converter of pressure-sensitive labels and flexible packaging, has added digital capabilities with a Colordyne 3600 Series Retrofit. The digital unit was installed on an existing Mark Andy 2200 flexographic press.
Diversified Labeling Solutions has installed a Colordyne 3600 Series Retrofit to an existing Mark Andy 2200 flexo press, creating a hybrid digital/flexo solution. The install was a result of the recent partnership between Colordyne and Mark Andy.
