AB Graphic has developed ILC760, a new in-line coating machine for fully integrated in-line coating on the HP Indigo 20000 digital press.
Supporting both water-based or UV coating, ILC760 is a cost-effective, easy-to-operate, top coating technology with slitting rewinding suitable for production of unsupported film applications such as sleeves, IML, wraparound labels and various flexible packaging top coated applications.
The 760mm wide ILC760 joins the Digicon 3000 in AB Graphic’s growing finishing portfolio for mid web digital production.
Tony Bell, sales director at AB Graphic, said: ‘The demand for digitally printed packaging is growing well beyond the pressure sensitive label market into areas such as sleeves, IML and various flexible packaging applications. AB Graphic is pleased to continue collaborating with HP Indigo to redefine the boundaries of digital production by offering cost-effective innovations for simplified and efficient production.’
Yogev Barak, HP Indigo director of product development, commented: ‘AB Graphic has a long standing strategic relationship with HP Indigo, and with this in-line solution we are excited once again to bring a novel solution addressing the needs of the packaging industry.’
ILC760 will make its debut at Labelexpo Americas 2018 , running September 25-27, on the HP stand where it will be operating in-line with the HP Indigo 20000.
Barak concluded: ‘The new Digicon solution will help converters lower production costs and move towards more profitable digital printing solutions.’
