INX International will display a full range of conventional and digital products, including sustainable and dispensing products, at Labelexpo Europe 2019.
INX is showing its digital ink products and technology. UV LED and water-based inks for various printers and printheads will be showcased, in addition to EB inks for the Fujifilm Dimatix Samba printhead.
For brand owners and packaging converters looking to meet sustainability goals, INXhrc natural-based flexographic inks are being shown. There are multiple benefits, starting with improved production efficiencies. These inks increase ink mileage with less resource consumption and waste generation, and contain fewer chemicals compared to traditional inks, thereby reducing regulatory risk. Using sustainable materials such as these can help reduce a company’s CO2 footprint by 20 to 30 percent compared to standard aqueous ink.
INX will also promote its latest EB low migration inks. Prodigy EBGA was the SGIA 2018 product of the year for digital inks – industrial and packaging. A premium electron beam inkjet ink that is used in Uteco’s Gaia printer, it provides strong adhesion to a range of traditional label material and film with high chemical and scratch resistance.
On the conventional side of the business, INX offers a complete line of flexographic and special effect inks for many applications, including the tag, label, packaging and shrink film. Water and UV coating options will also be available and an HMJ ink dispenser will be demonstrated. The dispenser can accommodate multiple dispense containers from jugs to pails and has a variety of features that will help any size operation.
