Kissel + Wolf Australia looks at how label converters can add digital printing for fibre-based packaging and fulfil all their customer’s packaging needs.
Digital print is well-established and accepted in the commercial print segment and in the self-adhesive label segment. Digital printing for packaging, especially fibre-based, has not yet been adopted widely. However, it is growing fast. Over the last couple of years, there has been an increasing demand for shorter-run packaging and faster turnaround times. To capitalise on this lucrative market segment, label converters need to consider investing in a digital printing and converting solution.
Kissel + Wolf Australia offers the perfect print-and-cut duo with its affordable Highjet 2500D digital inkjet printer and the iECHO TK4S digital creasing and cutting solution, including Esko’s easy-to-use ArtiosCAD structural design software.
The benefits of digital are clear: no plates, no makeready, no ink mixing, no dies, no storage, print only what is needed, fast turnarounds, no waste: all resulting in an agile production, higher margins and better outcome for the environment.
The HighJet 2500D comes in a four-colour water-based ink configuration, printing up to 600 x 1200 dpi, with an optional automatic feeder and stacker, inline varnish and dryer. It is equipped with industrial-grade print heads from Kyocera and the state-of-the-art Caldera RIP, powered by the Adobe PDF Print Engine 6.
The iECHO TK4S digital creasing and cutting solution can be configured to fit the required cutting size and is equipped with different cutting and creasing tools.
Kissel + Wolf’s complete end-to-end solution for customers ranges from productivity and workflow software to digital inkjet printing machines for the folding carton and corrugated boxes, to digital creasing and cutting solutions. In addition, Augmented Reality (AR) activation services and finance are offered through its preferred financier. All are complemented by business consultancy services. With premises optimally located in VIC, NSW and QLD, the company offers an efficient, nationwide distribution network to deliver the best possible service to its customers.
As the supplier of a wide range of high-quality products suited to a variety of printing applications from many of the leading suppliers in Europe, the USA and Asia, Kissel + Wolf is well-positioned to offer digital solutions, including local service, spare parts and consumables, and to help label converters pivot into the lucrative fibre-based packaging market.
