Heidelberg Debuts DriveLine for Pharmaceuticals
At the interpack 2011 show this week in Dusseldorf, printing giant Heidelberg has announced a new UV inkjet solution called DriveLine.
Derived from the company's Linoprint operations, DriveLine will be aimed at the pharmaceutical packaging market. Folding cartons produced through offset printing can be individualized with this new UV inkjet technology, both inline and standalone.
The DriveLine F system can be integrated directly into a packaging line for the production of individualized blister pack foils, while the DriveLine B system supports multiple packaging lines simultaneously. The DriveLine C system prints on folding-carton boxes and blanks makes it possible to print extremely short runs with logos or labels in different language versions.
"UV inkjet printing is rapidly gaining importance thanks to its versatility in the choice of substrates and the fact that it can be directly integrated into packaging production lines," said Stephan Plenz, member of the Heidelberg Management Board, responsible for Equipment. "Together with our recently established partnership with Ricoh, the Linoprint portfolio represents a second stronghold in our range of digital printing solutions. Linoprint gives our customers the flexibility they need to cost-effectively manufacture high-quality small and variable lot sizes in the packaging production."
