The first NS Multi LG digital printers for corrugated board and boxes roll off the manufacturing line in Europe18 Jun 2018
The first orders for the newly launched NS Multi-LG by digital printer manufacturer New Solution Engineering, have just started to ship. The ground-breaking flatbed digital corrugated printer, launched at FESPA last month, prints directly on to uncoated or coated media for the customisation of corrugated card and board, pre-cut folding boxes and craft cartons.
With Italian company LIC Packaging, Sappi has gained a renowned packaging manufacturer as a new customer. The company uses the brilliant white double-coated fresh fibre Fusion Topliner, as well as the recently launched uncoated version, Fusion Uncoated. Both products are being printed exclusively with post-print processes. Depending on the run length and quality requirements, the company uses either offset or flexo print. Digital printing will be added shortly, once a new HP C500 digital printer for direct corrugated board printing is installed in June 2018.
The Delta Group, a London-based global visual communications provider, made an important investment in digital technology at the FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin, purchasing an EFI™ Nozomi C18000 single-pass, ultra-high-speed LED inkjet corrugated packaging press from Electronics for Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq: EFII). The Delta Group made the investment to meet customer needs, including increased demand for faster turnaround times and lower costs.
Appearing for the first time at FESPA in Berlin last week Highcon Systems introduced the new Highcon® Euclid IIIC digital cutting and creasing machine to visitors.
Rondo-Ganahl, an Austrian manufacturer of corrugated board packaging, is a company steeped in tradition. It is now using Sappi’s Fusion Topliner with its recently installed Durst digital printer, producing personalised corrugated folding boxes in short as well as longer runs with very short lead times at its plant in St. Ruprecht/Raab. Sappi’s brilliant white fresh fibre liner was chosen following a series of print and material tests. Fusion Topliner achieved excellent results – not only with offset and flexo, but also with digital printing.
