Screen’s digital printing press for flexible food packaging

The Truepress PAC830F uses water-based, food-safe inks

Screen, a leading manufacturer of innovative Inkjet digital printing equipment, has announced the upcoming launch of its latest cutting-edge digital printing press for flexible packaging films — the New Truepress PAC830F. The machine offers the speed and print quality demanded by production applications, and full safety compliance for food packaging applications.

With the increasing demand for safe and sustainable packaging solutions, Screen has been dedicated to developing a digital printing press that prioritizes these critical issues. The new press uses water-based, food-safe inks, ensuring that the digitally printed packaging not only looks good but also meets the highest standards of safety and hygiene.

The Truepress PAC830F digital printing engine is 100% digital, featuring CMYK and heavy white printheads, making it ideal for producing mainstream flexible packaging. With a speed of 75m/min, the machine delivers a high level of productivity, allowing businesses to meet customer demands with ease, such as quick turnaround deliveries. This state-of-the-art machine is the perfect solution for flexible packaging converters looking to improve efficiency, future-proof their printing operations and stay ahead of the competition.

Screen has worked to optimize this digital printing press with customer requirements in mind. The performance and suitability of the machine for the production of mainstream flexible packaging has been extensively validated using the already-established standard conversion processes. This innovative product is at the last stages of unveiling and will be available soon for purchase.

"We are excited to finally bring this revolutionary product to the market," said Yukiyoshi Tanaka, representative director/president and corporate Officer. "Our new digital printing press is a game-changer in the flexible packaging industry, offering a safe, sustainable, and high-speed solution that meets the growing demand for quality and safety in food packaging. We are confident that this machine will enable our customers to stay ahead of the curve and provide their customers with the best packaging solutions available."

In addition, Screen is inviting prospective clients to visit its company stand, Hall 8B Stand H29, at Interpack. Screen's expert team is on hand to introduce the technical benefits of our new Truepress PAC830F inkjet digital printing press for flexible packaging.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India hasdemonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India's real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
