Piotr Wnuk 114905 at http://www.labelsandlabeling.com Screen adds Digital Primer Option for Truepress Label 350UV SAI S http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/new-products/screen-adds-digital-primer-option-truepress-label-350uv-sai-s <div><p>Screen has finalized the development of the Digital Primer Option for its Truepress Label 350UV SAI S press. This option allows converters to maximize UV inkjet printing capabilities by improving print quality, adhesion, and durability. The company plans to launch the ink worldwide starting in October 2024.</p> <p>According to Screen, the number of substrates in the packaging industry, including the label segment, has steadily increased. Compared to other digital methods, UV inkjet printing is more suitable for wide substrates and is more durable, and its popularity has increased based on these advantages. However, UV inkjet printing may not produce satisfactory results on some special substrates, and the wettability varies depending on the ink and substrate, resulting in differences in quality, adhesion, and durability.</p> <p>To address these trends, Screen has developed the Digital Primer Option for its Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI S to improve adhesion, graininess and other characteristics. This option utilizes the extra head space in the Truepress LABEL 350UV SAI S to install an in-line inkjet primer unit without requiring additional installation space and additional main UV lamps.</p> <p>The primer unit can automatically generate a primer layer based on print data. Furthermore, the ink can be a near-transparent color and, in some cases, be used like varnish, making it more decorative.&nbsp;</p> <p>In this way, the in-line primer unit can expand the range of materials and applications for digital printing, creating further cost advantages and contributing to the system’s environmental friendliness by reducing waste and power consumption.<br /> &nbsp;</p>

114899 at http://www.labelsandlabeling.com Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Xeikon has partnered with anti-counterfeiting specialist Scribos, a Kurz company, to collaborate on new technology that enables digital label printers to provide added value with interactive features for brand protection, track and trace, and consumer engagement. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Leveraging the capabilities of Xeikon’s Titon dry toner printing, Digital Metal embellishment from Kurz, and Scribos’ product security expertise, the single-pass label application offers safeguarding brand value, combatting counterfeiting and grey market trading, as well as increasing consumer loyalty.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">’The consequences of counterfeiting are enormous and wide reaching,’ said Jeroen Van Bauwel, director of solution design at Xeikon. ‘Global companies lose billions of Euros every year, consumers are at risk from faulty products, and the environment suffers, just to mention a few. These problems can be mitigated by adding unique metallic elements to the printed label. Of course, Xeikon already offers variable data for security applications, but this joint development delivers a level of protection with a full-service solution that is truly revolutionary.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Powered by Xeikon’s X-800 DFE (Digital Front End), the application uses Scribos’ ValiGate technology and Scribos 360 Cloud Platform to offer high-level security and full visibility for brand owners via serialized, protected QR codes and metallic variable elements. Each code has a unique ID and contains a finely printed, sub-pattern acting as advanced copy protection.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘The secondary level of copy protection embedded in these QR codes relies on very intricate details, which can only be achieved with toner digital printing,’ commented Dr Steffen Scheibenstock, head of digital business development at Scribos.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">The coordination between the Xeikon press and Kurz metallization module allows for the integration of Variable Digital Metal (VDM) to enhance authentication. After verifying the ValiGate copy protection with a smartphone, the landing page will show a distribution of symbols, resembling a slot machine game. By comparing these symbols on the product with those on the screen, consumers engage in a secure 2-factor authentication (2FA) process.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘In this case, we printed a varied distribution of birds, each differing in position, shape, number and orientation. This method, embedded within the metallic print layer and unique to every label, offers robust protection against counterfeiting without requiring an app, ensuring security for all consumers,’ added Scheibenstock.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">The QR codes are supported by the Scribos 360 authentication platform, which provides a wealth of data for statistics and analysis. Customers can also choose from a range of consumer engagement modules, such as cross-selling options, bonus programs, games or competitions, all customized to match their own branding.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Van Bauwel added: ‘This doubly encrypted technology also offers an ideal way for brand owners to boost consumer engagement securely, providing endless possibilities for interaction that can increase brand loyalty, as well as an extended track and trace capability to combat fraudulent movement of goods. And because this is a fully digital process, it can easily be used even for quite short runs, such as to protect limited editions or to help small start-up brands tell their customers more about their sustainability commitments.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">On the Xeikon booth at drupa 2024, visitors will be able to see this new application printed live on Xeikon’s Titon press, which will be set up to run in single-pass operation with the Kurz metallization module. Demonstrated on a paper-based wine label, the interactive features are easily accessible by scanning the QR code with a mobile device. A variety of other print samples will be available to illustrate the myriad of possibilities offered by this technology.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘Our joint development with Kurz continues, bringing even more capabilities to label printers that enable them to offer multiple value-adding solutions and open new high-end segments. With copy-protected QR codes and high-quality metallic embellishments, Xeikon is exploring the full potential of digital, giving customers a new innovative way of differentiating themselves in the very competitive label market,’ concluded Van Bauwel.</span></span></p> </div> <div class="sharethis-wrapper"> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_facebook_button" displayText="facebook"></span> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_twitter_button" displayText="twitter"></span> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_linkedin_button" displayText="linkedin"></span> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_email_button" displayText="email"></span> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_sharethis_button" displayText="sharethis"></span> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/interactive-technology/xeikon-partners-kurz-and-scribos" st_title="Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos " class="st_pinterest_button" displayText="pinterest"></span> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div>3 days 15 hours ago</div> </div> <div> <div>Short title</div> <div>Xeikon partners with Kurz and Scribos </div> </div> <div> <div>Short summary</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Digital printing and metallic embellishment combination enable interactive features in a new label application to stimulate consumer interaction.</span></span></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Digital printing and metallic embellishment combination enable interactive features in a new label application to stimulate consumer interaction.</span></span></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/europe" hreflang="und">Europe</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/digital-printing" hreflang="en">Digital printing</a></div> <div><a href="/finishing-and-embellishment" hreflang="en">Finishing and embellishment</a></div> <div><a href="/interactive-technology" hreflang="en">Interactive technology</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Related suppliers</div> <div> <div><a href="/suppliers/xeikon" hreflang="en">Xeikon</a></div> <div><a href="/suppliers/leonhard-kurz-stiftung-cokg" hreflang="en">Leonhard KURZ Stiftung &amp;

'What we especially like is the color quality that matches our flexo and allows us to switch jobs from one to the other as needed. And for one of our major customers, it’s perfect for producing 80 different designs of 100m each.'</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘We have invested heavily in the new premises and latest flexo and digital technology and it’s really paying dividends. Having digital capability rounds out our offering and shows we have grown into a good size business that can offer a full service on jobs from very short to very long, and all with a great deal of customer care,’ added Jackson. ‘We were delighted with the number of our valued customers and suppliers that attended and the positive comments they made about our organization and production workflow.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Just over a year ago the company has also <a

Amherst Label adds third Domino press http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/installations/amherst-label-adds-third-domino-press <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">US-based Amherst Label, an Inovar Packaging Group company, located in Milford, NH, has added its third Domino N610i digital UV inkjet, with the installation of the second MPS EF Symjet ‘powered by Domino’ hybrid press.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Inovar is one of North America’s premier label printing and packaging solution companies producing packaging for many of the nation’s leading brands across multiple industries. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">In March 2023, the group has <b><a href="https://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/industry-trends/inovar-packaging-group-acquires-amherst-label" style="color:#467886; text-decoration:underline">acquired Amherst Label</a></b> in Milford adding to its existing manufacturing footprint. Today, with 11 locations, Inovar is a commercial enterprise by building a platform to drive scalable and sustainable growth.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Amherst Label’s first digital press was the Domino N610i digital UV inkjet label press, installed in July 2016, followed by its first MPS EF Symjet ‘powered by Domino’ hybrid press in March 2021. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘We have 55 full-time employees and we’ve added 250 new customers in the last two years,’ said Nye Hornor, president of Amherst Label. ‘Our key objective is to take great care of our customers, provide great opportunities for our employees, and use technology to continue to grow. Today, we have four flexo presses, one Domino N610i digital roll-to-roll, and two MPS-Domino (flexo/digital) hybrids. So, it’s really exciting to see our growth.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">A driving factor for adding the latest MPS-Domino hybrid press was not only need to increase capacity, but the desire to expand capabilities to include printing and converting in a single pass, all in-line, while being able to add embellishments, varnishes, cold foil and more. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘With being able to print and convert in-line, we are saving a tremendous amount of time by doing the process in one step versus two steps,’ commented Hornor. ‘So, we have more throughput, more productivity. All these benefits are a Domino effect.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘The Domino has been a great addition to our fleet of equipment. There are several key advantages of the technology. First, is the opacity of the white. Second, is speed. I have talked to converters that have other digital equipment running half the speed that we are. The other day, we were running at 65 meters per minute (213 feet per minute). And it’s not just speed for printing, but speed to the customer.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘Third, is color gamut. ‘With our CMYKOV+W, we can hit almost any color. And fourth, and most important, is the quality.&nbsp; When we sent out the testing for samples to be done, the Domino samples that came back to us were the best of any digital printing provider. Domino just really stood out, and we knew we would be excited to send that quality to our customers.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">Katie Putnam, pre-press and digital print supervisor&nbsp; added: ‘I agree. And another one I will add is color consistency. That is a huge factor. So, whether it’s running 20,000 feet of product this month for a customer, or only 5,000 of the same label next month, we know it’s going to match.’</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Aptos,sans-serif">‘We have been very satisfied with Domino. We trust the Domino technicians and they trust our people, and it’s a great back and forth in understanding each other’s needs,’ concluded Hornor. </span></span></p> </div> <div

http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/digital-printing/xeikon-and-sappi-create-food-safe-recyclable-packaging <div><p>Building on its long partnership with Sappi, Xeikon has developed food-safe, paper-based candy packs that are fully recyclable in the paper waste stream. &nbsp;</p> <p>With high image quality, bright colors and silky surface, packets of ‘Maoam Chew Fruit Mix’ showcase <a href="https://www.labelsandlabeling.com/suppliers/xeikon">Xeikon</a>’s Titon dry toner technology printed on heat-sealable <a href="https://www.labelsandlabeling.com/suppliers/sappi-alfeld">Sappi</a> Seal Silk 67 g/sqm functional paper. Notably, this flexible packaging is said to be food-safe without the need for any additional barriers in the structure, such as a varnish or other layers.&nbsp;</p> <p>Frank Jacobs, Xeikon’s market intel and senior product manager, said: ‘Xeikon continues to meet brand owners’ demands for environmentally friendly and food-safe packaging with value-adding solutions created through close collaborations with other industry leaders. Our latest sustainable flexible packaging solution is enabled by Sappi’s long-standing expertise in recyclable paper materials and the unique capabilities of Xeikon Titon dry toner.’ &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Sappi Seal Silk is a functional single-coated paper with high heat sealability and moisture barrier. Fully recyclable, it has been designed for both primary and secondary flexible packaging applications in the food and non-food sectors. Offering high quality printing results and openability, the paper is suitable for direct food contact, which perfectly complements the properties of Xeikon’s food-safe, odorless and migration-proof Titon toners. The new candy packs leverage the capabilities of these two technologies, presenting a package with high shelf appeal that is also highly resistant to the strains of the packaging journey. &nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>Sibylle Hajostek, market manager packaging solutions at Sappi, commented: ‘The ongoing collaboration with Xeikon offers clear benefits for printers, as we can provide them with a well-tested route to producing recyclable flexible packaging with Sappi Seal Silk as the basis. Together we’re delivering sustainable innovation that the market needs in order to respond to end users’ demands for more eco-conscious packaging and to comply with new legislation for a circular economy.’&nbsp;</p> <p>Xeikon’s TX500 digital press will be running live during drupa 2024 (28 May-7 June), in Düsseldorf, to demonstrate how these candy packs are printed in four colors, at a resolution of 1200 DPI and speed of 30 m/min (98 ft/min). This 508mm (20 inches) wide printing machine is the first to use Titon dry toner technology. Resistant to heat, chemicals and mechanical abrasions, the toners enable printers to produce sustainable, paper-based food packaging without the need for a varnish or other protective layers. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;Jacobs concluded: ‘Sustainability is the biggest driver in packaging production today, but that doesn’t mean that we should compromise on quality. Visitors to drupa should head to the Xeikon booth (Hall 11/A01) to investigate our high-quality, paper-based packaging for themselves and discuss new market opportunities for their business with our experts.’&nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="sharethis-wrapper"> <span st_url="http://www.labelsandlabeling.com/news/digital-printing/xeikon-and-sappi-create-food-safe-recyclable-packaging" st_title="Xeikon

For both events we prepared and printed occasional labels that showed all the participants, which proved a fun and much appreciated souvenir.  </span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:medium"><span style="font-family:Aptos, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">‘We hope they all have good memories of their visit to Mark Andy and that meeting our specialists and seeing and using our technology will provide them with a solid background to their learning process.
