Digital converting

Made simple

Increasing demand for shorter run lengths, reduced lead times and growing SKU diversity in labels and flexible packaging has created growing demand for digital print solutions.

The Digicon 3000 is a mid-web finishing solution for digitally printed flexible packaging and labels. It is highly configurable, offering numerous different options including finishing for labels, shrink sleeves packaging and POS/POP as well as inline coating and lamination of flexible packaging and labels. It is also compatible with the HP Indigo 20000 digital press.

ebeam

Alongside, ebeam (also known as EB) curing has numerous important benefits when integrated into post-press finishing, especially in relation to the wider materials printed on an HP Indigo 20000. These benefits include improved print integrity and visual presentation as well as substantially increased package durability and abrasion resistance. It is also good for the environment, eliminating the need for solvents, produces virtually no VOCs and requires very little energy. Another important benefit is speed. ebeam curing is instant and because output from an Indigo is often surface print, it is possible to surface coat for protection, and immediately send to slitting and pouch or bag forming.

For food packaging converters particularly, ebeam inks and varnish contain no photoinitiators so the risk of migration and contamination of food is negated making flexible packaging and labels a food safe solution for indirect contact materials.

Overall, the Digicon 3000 has been developed to meet this demand and to provide both in-line or off-line finishing for digitally printed webs.

The Digicon 3000 is a joint development between Edale and AB Graphic International.
