SCREEN unveils new water-based inkjet press prototype for paperbased packaging at FachPack2022

September 23, 2022

As part of its vision to become a leading digital printing-equipment supplier for flexible packaging, SCREEN Graphic Solutions Co., Ltd. (SCREEN GA) will showcase a prototype model of its new Truepress PAC520P high-speed, inkjet printing system at leading European trade fair FachPack 2022. SCREEN GA is developing this digital press specifically for printing onto paper-based substrates, using water-based, food-compliant inks for sustainable flexible packaging applications.

The flexible packaging industry is under increasing pressure from consumer groups to reduce its environmental impact by creating more sustainable packaging structures. One rapidly growing trend is the reduction of plastic material used in packaging. Many market-research studies have shown that consumers perceive paper-based packaging as a more environmentally friendly and easy-to-recycle format for the products they buy. Brand owners, meanwhile, are demanding shorter turnaround times with a higher degree of product diversification (more SKUs). Packaging converters are not able to adapt their analogue printing equipment (flexo, gravure or offset) to handle the increase in variability in packaging designs and order frequency.

In response to these market trends, SCREEN GA is moving forward with product planning for its Truepress PAC 520P – a high-speed, water-based inkjet digital press for paper-based packaging substrates with a much lower environmental impact than conventional printing processes. This is due to a drastic reduction in energy and material waste. The Truepress PAC 520P utilises newly developed proprietary water-based pigment inks that comply with appropriate food-safety regulations. The system is expected to provide both outstanding print quality and safety while maintaining exceptional throughput.

Also at FachPack 2022, SCREEN will continue to promote the Truepress PAC 830F industrial water-based inkjet digital-printing press for flexible packaging plastic films (PET, BOPP). This press is in its final development stages with the first few units expected to hit the market next year. This innovative digital press is expected to launch amid much excitement and expectation in the flexible packaging market given its industrial production capabilities for short-run jobs and high print quality.

SCREEN GA is delighted to exhibit a preliminary prototype of the Truepress PAC 520P together with the latest digitally printed flexible packaging pouches at the stand of our strategic collaborator Clarus Films GmbH (Hall 4, Stand 364) at FachPack 2022, to be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from 27-29 September.
