Three vendors, BDT Media Automation GmbH, a market leader for B2 format feeders in digital printing, Fujifilm Dimatix, a leading provider of inkjet printheads for commercial and industrial printing, and Phoseon Technology, a leader in UV LED curing solutions for commercial and industrial applications have teamed up to develop a complete digital printing solution for packaging applications.
The key to this solution is BDT’s Tornado-based Product Feeder and Print-system, which will handle off-line processing of standard packaging materials including coated and uncoated cardboard, corrugated board, and paper stock, as well as more exotic packing materials such as metallic foils and plastics.
Fujifilm will contribute a drop on demand inkjet system, complete with UV-curable inks, complemnted by Phoseon’s curing. According to Howard Baldwin, Vice President of Sales at FujiFilm: “The synergy of material handling, printing and LED curing together will deliver an optimal industrial solution for both end users and OEM’s.”
The system will be at the Pack Expo International in Chicago, Nov. 2-5, 2014.
