This new technology offers brand owners and converters a “touchless” end-to-end workflow to provide faster and more responsive delivery, versioning, and shorter run lengths. This is all achieved with proven Xerox printing technology, the iGen4, which was recently acclaimed one of the most productive presses in the high-end production printing industry. The inline solution is a result of an agreement reached with Kama GmbH. The solution is connected to the coater by the stacker/buffer line, provided by Epic Products International. It can handle either UV or aqueous coating, providing protection to the package against handling and also enhancing its aesthetics.
A new optional component, the SBU, allows automated stripping of the waste from printed blanks without the need for expensive tools or cumbersome manual processes. The SBU is attached to the die cutter. There’s also an optional automatic registration module for tight image alignment to the die lines.
Mass customization on packaging applications with quantities as small as one are now possible. No need to tie up the analog press; wait weeks for your order or warehouse extra blanks.
