Eshuis opts for Grafotronic finishing line for HP Indigo V12 press

Dutch converter increases the level of automation and efficiency.

Eshuis, one of the leading label and packaging producers in the Netherlands, has chosen Grafotronic DCL finishing fine for its HP Indigo V12 Digital Press, to increase the level of automation and integration with its existing ERP system.

Since 2023, Eshuis has been on one of the first beta users of the HP Indigo V12 Digital Press. It delivers 120 linear meters a minute of non-stop printing therefore requires a dedicated and fully automated finishing technology to match its speed.

Eshuis decided to invest into Grafotronic DCL2 350 equipped with the workflow automation system Grafotronic IQ+.

Peter Overbeek, CEO Eshuis, said: ‘Eshuis is focused on constantly making our production more efficient. One of the key elements to achieve this is automation. The Grafotronic IQ system together with a full integration with our ERP systems and high productivity, makes this a unique solution to bring label finishing to the highest level of efficiency.’

The Grafotronic IQ+ automation feature enables the Grafotronic DCL2 to independently perform job changes and handle all job settings automatically, acting as a virtual operator. Grafotronic IQ+ works with AI controlling a set of cameras that monitor the web to automatically adjust all necessary parameters.  

The installation of the Grafotronic DCL2 will take place in autumn 2024.
