Officials from Trioplast Nyborg and Koenig & Bauer celebrate the successful completion of the Evo XG 8 LR project.

Packaging provider Trioplast Nyborg, part of the Trioplast Group, is investing in an Evo XG 8 LR from Koenig & Bauer for printing polyethylene films for industrial packaging.

Koenig & Bauer’s flexo printing machine delivers a maximum repeat length of up to 1,400mm and a print width of a maximum 1,650mm on the wide web.

It’s designed for large print jobs for industrial packaging applications and is expected to be operational at Trioplast Nyborg’s plant in Q2 2021.

“This stack-type flexo press replaces three of our old presses,” Trioplast’s chief procurement officer Oskar Karlsson said.

According to Koenig & Bauer, a further, even larger press, the Evo XG 10 LR, will also be ordered in 2021.

The Evo XG series includes automated CI flexographic printing machines for effective processing of a range of films, papers, and cardboards at production speeds of up to 600 meters per minute.

Trioplast is an industrial group with just over 1,200 employees and a turnover of 540 million euros. The group is one of the leading European players in innovative, sustainable and cost-efficient packaging solutions based on polyethylene film. It operates production facilities in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, and France, and sells its products on a global market.
