Digital Printing-Wide Format - Roll to Roll
Koenig & Bauer attributes its success in the large-format market to its stable series of devices, including the 57˝ Rapida 145 with its production speeds of up to 18,000 to the 64˝ Rapida 164 printing at 17,000 sph.
ePac hit a production record with its fleet of HP Indigo 20000 digital presses, reaching over 20 million B1 impressions at 10 sites. Compared to January of last year, volume has tripled. With its global expansion, including several U.S. locations, ePac aims to roll out 52 HP indigo 20000 presses by the end of 2020.
Karlville has announced it has been named as the first HP-certified HP Indigo Pack Ready provider, developing the Pack Ready laminator for the digitally printed flexible packaging market.
ePac, a joint partnership between Arion Partners and Emerald Packaging, is the first “Greenfield” flexible packaging company in North America based exclusively on a digital technology platform.
While flexible packaging has been traditionally entrusted to conventional processes like flexography and rotogravure, the increased popularity of the format, its versatility and a need to run more jobs faster is fueling the need to print more flexible packaging jobs digitally.
