According to UPM Raflatac, with e-commerce being one of the fastest-growing sectors, the need for efficient and reliable processes to ensure all shipments are labeled correctly is increasing. The Toshiba-UPM Raflatac collaboration brings together technological know-how and expertise that supports clients by creating sophisticated print applications.

Through this collaboration, Toshiba and UPM Raflatac will provide a ready-to-use technology for linerless printing: a combination of Toshiba’s BV420D-GL linerless printer and UPM Raflatac’s OptiCut linerless label material.

‘E-commerce business is requesting flexible, efficient, and sustainable solutions,’ said Angel de Juan, general manager at Auto ID Europe. ‘By partnering with UPM Raflatac, we are able to offer our European customers a global linerless portfolio which is a perfect match with our newly launched linerless printer.’

‘We have designed our OptiCut linerless label material range to meet the strictest efficiency requirements. It delivers clean cutting performance on the printer and excellent adhesion on the package. Our OptiCut label materials and Toshiba linerless printers together have been proven to provide an excellent printing experience benefitting our clients,’ added Jon Lenck, director of new and emerging technologies at UPM Raflatac.
