Michelman to showcase digital print primers at Dscoop Edge Indy

The company will also participate in two educational sessions on how to balance performance and sustainability.

Michelman has been gearing up for Dscoop Edge Indianapolis, where it will showcase its full portfolio of water-based coatings for HP Indigo digital presses and participate in two educational sessions, exploring how to balance performance and sustainability in digitally printed labels and packaging applications.

Dscoop attendees will be introduced to DigiPrime Vision, a new line of primers designed specifically for the in-line priming units (ILPs) of HP Indigo digital presses, including the new HP Indigo V12 Digital Press.

These primers help facilitate moving more analog jobs to digital, reducing media waste and overstocking.

DigiPrime Vision 9000, the new in-line primer for the HP Indigo 6K and 8K presses provides high print quality on a broad range of substrates, from smooth vinyl to heavily textured papers, as well as niche materials such as twill, wood veneer and velvet.

Lori Gobris, global marketing director for packaging at Michelman, will bring three decades of expertise in the paper and flexible packaging industries to a panel discussion titled ‘Initiating Sustainable Print Practices’ on Monday, March 25, at 1pm. Aimed at business owners and executives, topics will include best practices, common standards, and crucial first steps in the journey toward a more sustainable print future.

Dr Molly Hladik, global R&D manager for digital printing, will present ‘Regulatory Considerations When Moving From Labels To Flexible Packaging in Digital Printing’ which will cover concerns around inks and coatings, as well as downstream performance factors such as food contact, migration and process conditions for flexible packaging. Her lecture will also touch on how the use of coatings can help us move to a more circular economy by enabling broader substrate use. The presentation is scheduled for Monday, March 25, at 2:45pm.

Michelman's application and regulatory experts will be available in booth #1085 to consult with Dscoop attendees interested in unleashing the full potential of digital printing.
