Reprocad Ltd, announces that Chartley Coffee Ltd has installed the Rigolii MVZ1000 package printer in its headquarters in Staffordshire, UK. Chartley, will use the MVZ1000 to print roll-to-roll flexible packaging, and will feed these rolls to their coffee packaging lines, as well as other packaging machines used for tea companies and other clients in the beverage industry.

Developed by Rigoli s.r.l., the Memjet-powered MVZ1000 gives brand owners the ability to produce variable packaging across a range of applications, sizes, and substrates. The packaging is produced either off-line or in-line to create customised solutions. Its small footprint means this package-printing solution can easily be placed in-line with finishing equipment.

As the packaging market addresses an increasing demand for varying branding, messaging, sizes, and shapes, the MVZ 1000 delivers. It has the speed, image quality, reliability, and affordability that users demand-and only Memjet technology can provide."

Zsolt Tarjanyi, managing director of Rigoli

Since 1979, Chartley has worked with growers from all over the world to supply bespoke, hand-roasted, traceable coffee in and across the UK. A family business, the company runs five large vintage roasters, combining traditional methods of coffee roasting with modern packaging facilities. The move to on-site digital printing for all their packaging allows Chartley’s customers to order short-run special promotional packs with full personalisation.

Using the MVZ, we can print up to a metre wide onto accurately wound jumbo rolls. This functionality means that we can offer a wider range of solutions for our customers and enable us to be more responsive and add value to our offering.”

Owain Antcliff, Managing Director at Chartley Coffee Ltd

Reprocad has been involved in wide format printing and label printing for 15 years. The company has a wealth of experience with Memjet technology. Having recently taken on the exclusive distribution of the MVZ packaging printer for the UK and Ireland, Reprocad is positioned to support the transition of flexible packaging print to digital, as driven by the demands of the fast-moving modern market.

Digital technology gives true on-demand print, and the MVZ 1000 printer can produce personalised packing with short-runs, down to a single package, if required. The full metre+ print width allows for many package sizes to be produced. In real-life situations, it is quite normal to need a production run with 500 packages using design X, 200 packages using design Y, 50 packages using design Z, and so on. The MVZ 1000 printer can cope with this via its internal software menu system.”

Peter Barton, managing director of Reprocad

The Memjet-powered Rigoli MVZ 1000 can support media widths of up to 1067mm, and 1000m in length, producing 1600 × 1600dpi at 9m/min, or 1600 × 800dpi at 18m/min speed, with 1.2pl drop size. The printer also includes an industrial unwinder and rewinder that can accommodate jumbo rolls.

OPEN DAY SESSIONS

To support interest in this new, affordable, digital technology, Reprocad is hosting Open Days at Chartley’s premises 7th to 9th April 2020. These sessions will demonstrate the benefits of in-house printing, personalization, and the efficiency of short-runs.
