Partnering with Sihl, Afinia Label has announced it is introducing the FP-230: a solution for short to medium runs of flexible packaging.
The Afinia FP-230 is a desktop press with a maximum media width of 230mm. It utilises Memjet’s Versapass DN technology to produce colour prints at 1600dpi, with speeds up to 18m per minute. The water-based CMYK inks are approved for food packaging when combined with inline cold lamination.
Sihl’s Artysio range of packaging films is optimised for printing on the FP-230 and for use with a wide range of VFFS and HFFS packing lines.
Joe Collins, from Afinia Label, talked about this solution.
“As companies have focused on things like reducing waste, smaller production runs, and increasing personalization in recent years, the need for an on-demand flexible packaging solution has grown significantly. Our groundbreaking solution is low-investment and empowers the user with full control of their own production, putting an end to minimum order restrictions and long lead times. Users can take a roll of blank Artysio film and go from print to pack in minutes, opening the door to endless opportunities.”
The FP-230 will be on the HD Labels booth (J9) at the Packaging Innovations show on the 26th & 27th February in Birmingham, UK. Throughout the show they will be holding live demonstrations of the FP-230 alongside a VFFS packing system.
