Screen Graphic Solutions has finalized the development of its PacJet FL830, a new high-speed, water-based inkjet system specifically designed for the flexible packaging market, which is set for release in March 2021.
The new high-speed, water-based inkjet printing system is specially designed for flexible packaging and can handle media up to 830 millimeters (32in) wide at speeds of up to 75 meters per minute (246 feet per minute). It is also capable of printing at a resolution of 1,200 dpi using CMYK and white water-based inks that conform to relevant food safety regulations. These features deliver both the safety and rich color essential for the food products industry.
The PacJet FL830 meets a wide variety of print needs, ranging from promotional to production applications. It also demonstrates great responsiveness for small lot jobs of less than 4,000 meters, an area that can be problematic for conventional analog production. At present, the system handles both PET and OPP media and Screen is working to further expand compatibility based on industry requirements.
The development of PacJet FL380 is part of Screen’s strategic plan aiming to target the package printing field as a business area and strengthen its product portfolio and development for this market.
