One of the world’s leading manufacturers of digital printing systems Xeikon has announced the development of a new solution in the field of digital printing on bags with a stable bottom for the food, chemical, pharmaceutical industry and beverage industry.
The process of printing on flexible bags with a stable bottom (doypacks) can be quite complicated due to the flexibility of the bags and their layering.
With its new technology Xeikon helps simplify the entire process to provide a quick solution of the problem. On the first step text and graphics are plotted on the multilayer thermometal by digital printing. Thus the outer layer of the package is ready for the following steps. Then with the lamination method a variety of layers with different barrier properties are applied and finally during the production process takes place the assembly of the package. The new Xeikon digital printing solution provides minimal complexity and the widest possible combination of lamination.
In addition the technology allows printing of variable data in one or several colors.
