Ebeam launches new ebeam curing for Indigo 20000

Ebeam Technologies, which develops electron beam solutions, has launched a new EB curing system, the Ebeam Core 100/760, specifically designed for overprint varnish applications printed on the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press.

Ebeam Technologies has developed the Core 100/760 designed for use with the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press.

Elsa Callini, business development manager at Ebeam Technologies, explains: “Our Ebeam Core 100/760 solution is based on a simple design originated from our proven and reliable ebeam Core series. It has an integrated shield roll for web support and, thanks to electron beam technology’s considerably lower energy consumption, is cost effective to operate.”

The main advantage of ebeam curing is that it’s suitable for the production of safe indirect food-contact packaging because there’s no need for the photo-initiators that cause migration issues with UV-curable inks.

Ebeam curing also gives high-gloss, matte and soft-touch finishes that are scratch, tear, puncture and fade resistant, resulting in substantially increased package durability and abrasion resistance. It can be used with heat sensitive substrates and can also be used for a Cast & Cure process, delivering hologram effects that make finished products stand out on store shelves.

Mach Machikawa, HP Indigo global flexible packaging segment manager, commented: “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.”
