08 Feb 2018


A new hybrid press has been launched by press manufacturers, Durst and Omet. Introduced at the Durst Digital Days, the Omet XJet combines the Durst Tau RSC high-speed inkjet press with Omet's X6 flexo stations and converting units.

Described by the two companies as 'the jewel in the crown' of their established partnership, the new press is being officially presented to more than 100 international customers at the three-day event in Brixen, north Italy.

The Omet XJet is powered by the Durst Tau RSC, which features a 330mm print width with a maximum print speed of 78m/min at 1200 x 1200dpi resolution. With eight colour stations (CMYK+W+OVG) and newly designed high-pigmented inks, it covers 98% of the Pantone colour gamut.

Helmuth Munter, segment manager labels and package printing at Durst, commented, 'We are very pleased to partner with Omet in the launch of this highly professional hybrid printing solution. It combines the best technologies of both, the digital inkjet printing and conventional pre- and post-press printing and finishing world, offering our common future customers a highly cost effective and complete 'all-in-one' printing process.'

Marco Calcagni, Omet sales and marketing director, added, 'We managed to create a complete Made-in-Italy printing solution that meets the market trends of personalisation, just-in-time deliveries and final product variation, but also maintaining all the capabilities of a conventional press.'

Inspiring And Engaging Durst Digital Days Attracted Record Attendees
February 9, 2018


BRIXEN, Italy — February 9, 2018 — Passionate and positive customer feedback will help shape Durst thinking for future events after record attendances at the “inspiring and engaging” Digital Days at its world headquarters in Brixen, northern Italy, that concluded on Friday [February 9].

Guest speakers at the latest edition of the the renowned international open house included Rick Hulme from Sunjet, who discussed Inkjet Ink Development for Labels, and Package Printing and Color Alliance’s Rainer Esters who gave an overview of Durst’s Web To Print Solution. Bettina Offenegger also detailed Durst’s Symphony Workflow Solution and Manuel Gruber focused on Durst Label Global Service.

Customer experiences took centre stage, too, with David Webster, The Label Makers UK managing director, speaking the Tau 330 and the Tau 330 RSC beta test, while Ramon Krieg, Technical Production Manager at BMZ in Switzerland, explained how its Tau 330 with Low Migration Ink was building impotant new business opportunities.

Mr Webster said: “Durst has been an incredibly supportive partner with fantastic technology, which is why I was only more than happy to come along and play an important role with a presentation on each of the three Digital Days. Installing the Tau 330 RSC has been another huge step for us. The Durst Tau 330 RSC prints at phenomenal speed and is far more cost-effective for us because it is using less ink, but still maintaining the incredible print quality. The future of most label production will be inkjet.”

Digital is now the clear preferred choice for us for smaller runs,” said Mr Krieg at the Durst Digital Days. “I believe that inkjet is the future, particularly now that our Durst Tau 330 is so cost-effective to run because there is no preparation time needed when you change jobs. And more of our work is increasingly short run.”

A factory tour included live demonstrations of the new Tau 330 RSC with in-line OMET Flex X6. The 78 linear meters/min (245 ft./min) UV inkjet label and package printing press with a 330 mm (13 in.) print width and 1200 x 1200 dpi printing resolution has eight color stations (CMYK+W+OVG).

Visitors also saw in action the Low Migration ink Tau 330 with Chill Roller and Insertion System suited to primary food and pharma packaging as well as the economic entry model Tau 330E with its specially developed high pigmented UV inkjet inks.

Durst’s, manufacturer of advance digital production technologies, also demonstrated its Web2Print solution for online design, preview and ordering of all kinds of packaging products including labels, folding carton. Durst’s own Workflow-Label Application Suite was also showcased. This is modular, expandable prepress software for order entry, pre-press, RIP, color management, ink-costing and production data management.

Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager, Durst Label & Package Printing, said: “The three days were packed with market knowledge, technical expertise and thought leadership aimed at helping attendees think differently about how they can improve the way they manage their business. Our customers are passionate about the work they produce and the growth of digital and inkjet – it’s the future. The Durst Digital Days also armed them with many ideas on how to better support their customers and grow their business through the adaptable solutions we provide as a true partner.

“In particular, our proprietary single pass UV inkjet technology delivers the flexibility for fast and efficient production of the highest print quality for an expansive range of label and packaging applications. Small, medium, and now long runs are highly profitable with our digital systems. Thanks to a cost-effective total cost of ownership we provide, the options are virtually unlimited and open up an enormous potential for new products and services in an ever-changing market.”

HP Announces Major Digital Packaging Expansion in US
Tuesday, February 13, 2018

ePac purchases 10 HP Indigo 20000 digital presses for nationwide rollout



Palo Alto, Calif. – HP Inc. today announced that ePac Flexible Packaging, an all-digital flexible packaging converter, purchased 10 additional HP Indigo 20000 digital presses to expand operations across the US through mid-2019. The new order quadruples production capacity for ePac and is the largest packaging deal for HP to date.

The purchase is ePac’s second expansion with the high-capacity HP Indigo 20000 flexible packaging press since launching just 18 months ago with one HP Indigo unit. ePac currently uses three HP Indigo 20000 digital presses in Madison and Boulder, and the 10 new units will be deployed coast-to-coast in new facilities opening in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, and Miami.

“ePac helps simplify how brands of all sizes buy flexible packaging. Rapid turnaround time, low minimums, customization, graphics quality, and the ability to print to demand differentiate ePac from conventional flex pack converters,” said Jack Knott, CEO, ePac Flexible Packaging. “Printing is the core enabling technology we have built ePac on, with the HP Indigo 20000 serving as the foundation of our manufacturing platform. ePac’s collaboration with HP is fundamental to our growth strategy, as we look to adding ePac sites in the months ahead.”

The HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press provides converters the freedom to produce nearly any flexible packaging application, in addition to labels, and shrink sleeves on film or paper – all with the proven quality to help meet strict brand requirements.

“HP Indigo digital printing technology means greater flexibility for brands and entrepreneurs, and a more meaningful connection for their consumers,” said Santi Morera, Global Head of Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc. “HP is thrilled to play an integral role in ePac’s rapid rise to success over the past two years – and with today’s purchase, it’s a relationship we support proudly in the months and years to come.”

Growing market for flexible packaging

Smithers Pira forecasts growth in flexible packaging, with digital forecast to increase at more than 17.1% CAGR in the five-year period to 2022, when this market is expected to reach more than $750 million. “High-quality printing allows converters to offer new features and functions in flexible packaging to brands and retailers with economic short runs and faster turnaround key advantages. Innovative campaigns are boosting end user engagement and experiences, opening new business opportunities for the early adopters,” said Sean Smyth, Smithers Pira.

Since its release in 2014, converters around the world have purchased more than 115 HP Indigo 20000 digital presses. The 30 inch (76 cm) HP Indigo 20000 can print virtually any sized flexible packaging application with unlimited variation and support demand for growing SKUs, alongside benefits of reduced waste from minimal setup and production of only the quantities needed.

The HP Indigo 20000 is connected to HP PrintOS, allowing PSPs to monitor the press performance in real time anywhere and anytime, and thus continuously optimize operations. Powerful apps running on the cloud-based PrintOS platform offer advanced capabilities that simplify and automate the print operations. In addition, by connecting their brands directly to PrintOS, PSPs can efficiently produce large jobs’ volume and be part of a global print network.

The HP flexible packaging ecosystem has grown to include end-to-end solutions including HP Indigo Pack Ready Lamination for immediate time-to-market with high-performance laminates. The system consists of the Pack Ready Laminator, supplied by Karlville, and Pack Ready Film. In addition, eBeam is offering a solution for surface print protection.

More information on the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press is available at hp.com/go/hpindigo20000.




St Luc adds second HP Indigo 20000
13 Feb 2018


Belgium-based St-Luc Labels & Packaging has taken an additional HP Indigo 20000 digital press into service. It is the first printing company in the Benelux to install two of HP's flexible packaging presses, which it is using to deliver digitally printed foil.

The company has been active in the field of packaging for over 20 years. It has three locations and produces self-adhesive labels, booklet labels, folding cartons, shrink sleeves and foil packaging.

Vivian Cohen, brands and creatives manager at HP Indigo, said, 'Packaging is the only medium that consumers cannot avoid. And it's the last opportunity for brands to persuade consumers to buy their product. Thus it offers an excellent opportunity for brands to communicate.'

With its latest investment, St-Luc can respond to the demand from customers for access to packaging quickly and efficiently. Managing director Niko Dhondt said, 'If necessary, we can deliver in 24 hours. By offering digital packaging printing we can print, laminate, cut and deliver packaging within 10 days. With conventional printing that flexibility is much more expensive or not even feasible.'

Nu nog de vraag, wanneer vallen de puzzelstukjes in elkaar?



2017 was jaar van bevestiging voor HYBRID Software


HYBRID Software met haar hoofdkantoor te Merelbeke bij Gent heeft de laatste jaren een enorme groei gekend. Over die evolutie, maar ook over de uitdagingen en de noden van de verpakkingssector, hadden we een gesprek met Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of the Board van HYBRID Software.

HYBRID Software ontwikkelt Enterprise software voor de labels & packaging industrie. Oplossingen waarmee ze de kloof overbruggen tussen e-commerce portals, prepress workflows en MIS/ERPsystemen. Met hun PACKZ software is HYBRID ook het enige bedrijf dat over een true native PDF-editor beschikt die zo langzamerhand dé standaard wordt in de verpakkingsmarkt. Al deze oplossingen hebben een duidelijk doel voor ogen, namelijk de manuele input vervangen door software, het verhogen van de efficiëntie en een verbetering van de procescontrole en planning in de grafische bedrijven.

Internationale doorbraak

Voor HYBRID Software was drupa 2016 echt de doorbraak van de internationale erkenning. Daarover zegt Guido Van der Schueren het volgende: "Sinds drupa 2016 gaat het hard. Waar we in 2016 nog een omzet haalden van 9 miljoen euro, hebben we 2017 afgesloten met een omzet van 15 miljoen en een bruto winstmarge van 25 procent. Ook het aantal medewerkers is het afgelopen jaar van 70 naar 95 gestegen. Daarvan werken er ongeveer een 40-tal in onze vestiging te Merelbeke. 2017 was zonder meer een spectaculair jaar én de bevestiging dat we met onze producten de juiste oplossing hebben voor de actuele behoeften in de markt."

Erkenning van de markt

Een mooi voorbeeld van die internationale erkenning is het binnen halen van het Amerikaanse SGK, dat onderdeel uitmaakt van de Matthews International Group. Guido Van der Schueren : "Matthews is in België misschien niet zo bekend, maar deze groep is met een omzet van meer dan 1 miljard dollar en 10.000 werknemers op zes continenten, de grootste prepress groep ter wereld in de labels & packaging industrie. Zij hebben resoluut voor HYBRID gekozen voor het verwerken van alle prepress bestanden. Een dergelijke beslissing neem je niet zomaar hé, daar moet je goede redenen voor hebben."

Wereldwijd netwerk

Die internationale erkenning is mede mogelijk gemaakt door het opzetten van een wereldwijd netwerk van verkoopvestigingen. Guido Van der Schueren: "Vandaag hebben we naast ons hoofdkantoor in Merelbeke ook vestigingen in de US, Duitsland, Frankrijk, Italië, de UK en sinds kort ook in China. De verkoop van onze oplossingen doen we quasi volledig rechtstreeks en daarom is het een must om lokale sales en support mensen te hebben. Vooral support en service is uitermate belangrijk, want elk land of regio heeft toch weer iets andere behoeften."

Efficiëntie belangrijker dan automatisatie

Door zijn jarenlange ervaring in de sector, heeft Guido Van der Schueren zowat alle landen in de wereld bezocht. Wat hem daarbij opvalt, is dat er wereldwijd nog heel wat ruimte is voor verbetering."Op kwalitatief vlak scoren de meeste bedrijven goed, maar op het vlak van efficiëntie en procesbeheersing kan nog heel wat verbeterd worden. Men wil alles automatiseren, maar dat wil daarom nog niet zeggen dat men ook effectiever en beter werkt. Vooral de connectie tussen de verschillende processen, alsook de planning loopt nog te vaak mank. En dat is exact wat mij met onze geïntegreerde oplossingen willen aanpakken."

Move naar digitaal

Een andere belangrijke evolutie in de verpakkingsmarkt is de move naar digitaal, waarmee men perfect kan inspelen op de trend naar kleinere oplages. Guido Van der Schueren: "Een grote order in flexodrukken, maar een kleine nabestelling digitaal doen gebeurt steeds vaker. Vooral als men in flexo gebruik maakt van extended gammut printing, waarbij naast CMYK ook nog gedrukt wordt met oranje,violet en groen. Hiermee kan men meer dan 90 procent van alle Pantone kleuren drukken en diezelfde technologie zien we ook in de digitale persen. Vanuit onze PACKZ oplossing is er een link met de GMG colormanagement software, waardoor het gedrukte resultaat zowel digitaal als in flexo hetzelfde is. De move naar digitaal komt zeker en wij zijn er met onze oplossingen nu al klaar voor."

ebeam optimises curing for digital print finishing
19 Feb 2018

Launched at the HP Indigo worldwide VIP event, ebeam Technologies has introduced a new EB curing system specifically developed for the finishing of labels and flexible packaging printed on an HP Indigo 20000. The ebeam Core 100/760 could be seen installed on a GM coating unit during the event in February, in Israel.

The instant curing system has been optimised for over-print varnish applications, enabling the production of safe indirect food-contact packaging. ebeam curing offers high-gloss, matte and soft-touch finishes that are scratch, tear, puncture and fade resistant for increased package durability and abrasion resistance.

Finished materials also have increased heat resistance, which enables heat-sealing to form pouches, and as it is a room-temperature process, heat-sensitive substrates can be cured without issues. The system can further be used for the cast & cure process to produce holographic effects.

'The combination of HP Indigo 20000 and ebeam Core 100/760 with either an inline or near line coating unit is a perfect fit for surface print flexible packaging, such as form fill seal reel-fed lidding applications, which require highly demanding and durable protection for HP Indigo ElectroInks,' said Mach Machikawa, HP Indigo global flexible packaging segment manager. 'The potential for faster turnaround times, new market opportunities through high value-added embellishment, and sustainability offer HP Indigo 20000 users a genuine competitive edge.'

Elsa Callini, business development manager at ebeam Technologies, said, 'By addressing many important flexible packaging challenges, including fast turnaround times, environmental factors and traditional barriers to the safe production of indirect food-contact flexible packaging - we believe we have a promising solution for finishers and converters.'

VIP event in Israel sees launch of new HP label press
20 Feb 2018


HP has introduced the latest in its 6000 series of digital label presses. Incorporating a new digital front end, the HP Indigo 6900 press model also features Pack Ready for Labels and silver ElectroInk.

Described as 'the most advanced label press' compared to the existing WS6800, the 6900 runs at 30m/min in four colour mode and 40m/min in EPM (Enhanced Productivity Mode).

The press comes with the HP Production Pro digital front-end first introduced at Labelexpo last year. Featuring five times faster RIP power, the DFE is built on the field-proven foundations of Production Pro with the Harlequin RIP, Esko Color Engine and PrintOS Cloud connectivity. The Production Pro provides a single point of control to the press operator to streamline and manage the print workflow.

Pack Ready for Labels for the production of high resistance labels is another new feature. This has been enabled by the use of new primers and OPVs, and offers label printers the ability to produce labels with excellent chemical, scratch, thermal and water resistance for tough conditions.

The HP Indigo 6900 also integrates with the GEM embellishment unit, the first fully digital, one-pass label printing and embellishment solution for spot, tactile, foil, holograms, mini textures and lamination, while the new HP Indigo ElectroInk Silver, now commercially available, delivers metallic effects across a wide colour gamut, similar to Pantone 877.

The company also announced the commercial availability of the Pack Ready Laminator and extended capabilities for the HP Indigo 30000 press for cartons.

HP ships Indigo 12000 HD and announces labels and packaging updates
20 Feb 2018


The HP Indigo 12000 HD press, launched last September, is now shipping after completing trials at German beta test sites. The company has also introduced a new digital label press and enhanced existing Indigo and PageWide models that address flexible and corrugated applications.

Using additional lasers to achieve a resolution of 1625dpi and image reproduction said by HP to "exceed offset" with the equivalent on 290lpi screening, the Indigo 12000 HD is a B2 format press that uses HP's liquid toner technology.

Additional primary colour inks are available for the Indigo 12000 HD, including Vivid Pink and Vivid Green as well as fluorescent green, yellow, pink and orange. HP has introduced ColorUp! software to manage extended gamut printing, including the use of additional hits of the standard process colours.

In a raft of packaging and labels-related announcements, HP has also launched the Indigo 6900, a dedicated digital label press that supports silver ink, plus Invisible Yellow and Blue for security applications and PackReady production for food, household, chemicals and pharmaceutical use.

A laminator option for the Indigo 20000 flexible substrate press has been added and the Indigo 30000 folding carton model gains a performance boost. Users of the PageWide C500 corrugated packaging press gain Kiwiplan MIS/MES integration.

HP Indigo moves to enhance printer’s capabilities with new press and ILP unit
By David Pittman
20 Feb 2018


HP Indigo has developed 6900, a new digital press which provides enhanced capabilities to label and package printers by extending the application range of pressure-sensitive labels produced using its technology.

A key element of the new HP Indigo 6900 is integration of Pack Ready for Labels, offering enhanced chemical, mechanical, thermal and water resistance to pressure-sensitive labels. This opens them up to use in applications where high resistance is required, such as specific food, beverage, personal care, household chemical and pharmaceutical environments. Edible and automotive oils, refrigerated and sterilized goods, cleaners and bathroom products are identified by HP Indigo as such applications that are more easily addressed by printers deploying Pack Ready for Labels.

Ami Berger, product marketing manager for the HP Indigo 6x00 series, explained that such applications represent a third of the total pressure-sensitive label market. Two-thirds of the market, where high resistance is not a requirement, can already be readily addressed using HP Indigo digital printing technology.

To achieve such resistance characteristics, HP Indigo has developed a suite of pre- and post-press technologies, starting with an upgraded in-line priming (ILP) unit. The enhanced ILP features a gravure-style, anilox-based coating mechanism that supports the use of a new primer, developed in collaboration with Michelman. This primer, DigiPrime 022, provides enhanced adhesion between the substrate and ink. On top of the new Pack Ready primer, the DigiGuard 222 Pack Ready varnish is applied. Alternatively, HP-approved off-the-shelf varnishes can be augmented with the DigiGuard 901 varnish strengthener additive to provide chemical crosslinking with HP Indigo’s ElectroInk, so delivering the requisite resistance.

Berger noted: ‘While it has been possible to address this market previously, either using additional post-print processes or other printing technologies, Pack Ready for Labels means there’s no need for lamination or to use high-end UV varnishes to achieve high resistance when using the HP Indigo digital printing process.’

The HP Indigo 6900 features the upgraded ILP as an option and it also available as an upgrade option for HP Indigo WS6800 owners. The new ILP supports existing primers used by HP Indigo customers, with the added benefit that switching primers is simplified by the new coating mechanism.

‘Previously, the use of rubber rollers in the coating mechanism required extensive washing if looking to switch between primers, which could cause a headache and long periods of press downtime,’ explained Berger. ‘With the new coating system, it is a chamber doctor blade system that is essentially plug and play, making it much quicker and reasonable to change the primer.’

HP Indigo 6900 also integrates easily with HP Indigo GEM technology. GEM is a UV inkjet-based unit which enables the application of fully digital graphic embellishments in one pass. The technology is capable of a number of embellishments including digital, variable spot and tactile varnishes, foils, cast & cure and a range of other creative effects. It has so far only been shown publicly working in-line with an HP Indigo WS6800 press, but the HP Indigo 6900 will be ready to be integrated with GEM out of the box.

As well as future-proofing due to compatibility with Pack Ready for Labels and GEM, the HP Indigo 6900 features a number of ‘behind the hood’ productivity enhancements that have addressed pain points identified by existing HP Indigo 6x00 series press users. In total, HP Indigo has changed or improved more than 100 parts in the 6900 from previous 6x00 series models. New pumps and a new pipe system offer improved reliability, color calibration has been halved, a 7mm CCC provides better frame utilization, and an enhanced AAA print quality inspection system offers a better detection rate, less false alarms and can be used for a wider range of substrates, according to Berger.

Further developments include a splice detector that will detect splices, disengage the print engine and continue printing after the splice, meaning printers can achieve a higher utilization rate when using lower cost rolls that have splices. This also improves the life of consumables and eliminates the need to manually monitor splices, noted Berger.

A new DFE, HP Production Pro for Indigo Labels & Packaging, offers a faster RIP, allows enhanced fleet optimization and delivers greater site connectivity to respond to the pace of growth HP Indigo said its customers are experiencing. It is intended to cater to the increasingly complex environments printers operate in, where they are running multiple presses across multiple sites, producing an increasing number of complicated jobs, and with a need for more automation and streamlined management tools.

All of the above lead Berger to describe the HP Indigo 6900 as, ‘the most significant labels and packaging new product innovation this year'.

‘The HP Indigo 6900 gives you enhanced capability mostly on versatility and productivity, since the print quality is inherent through the print technology. You can address more applications and be more productive, and not just on the press but through the entire ecosystem.’

HP Indigo 6900 is commercially available from this week, when HP is hosting its latest global VIP event. Around 700 attendees are expected in Israel on February 20-21.

Also commercially available from this week is ElectroInk Silver. This new ink is said to open up a range of metallic colors by using it as a base layer, as well as other potential uses, such as replicating foils. To support ElectroInk Silver, HP has developed a special binary ink developer (BID) with a customized design and special materials to cope with issues arising when running the conductive elements found in ElectroInk Silver inside the electric field present in the print engine.

It utilizes covert and overt security print, serialization and RFID to make the supply chain safe, visible and efficient.

“Global brand owners already trust HP for the highest quality digital print for all of their consumer facing products. eAgile is pleased to be collaborating with a true leader to bring a turn-key security and authentication solution for brand protection,” said Gary Burns, CEO of eAgile.

The eLink solution will bring an affordable and potentially self-funding security system to industries who need to protect against counterfeits and diverted products. eAgile is already providing multiple Rain RFID and NFC solutions to the healthcare marketplace, primarily pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, two industries where these issues not only cost brand owners billions in direct and indirect damages, but potentially put lives at risk.

“Everyone from the brand owner to the consumer has common interests, they want products that are safe, authentic and compliant. The assumption by consumers is when a product is on the shelf, it has been validated by upstream checkpoints”, said Peter Phaneuf, President of eAgile. “This holds true in many traditional situations but with the expansion of on-line purchasing, international distribution models and an increasingly savvy counterfeit industry, there are limited ways to affordably police your brand at all levels and in all places. By providing an effective authentication process powered by a smartphone, nearly everyone will have access to safe and secure goods.”

The combination of HP’s high-speed security digital print and eAgile’s proven RFID/IoT based smart packaging platforms has created eLink, an actionable strategy for a secure, authentic and traceable supply chain rich with real-time data analytics.
