At an exclusive event for packaging converters and print service providers, Agfa unveiled its SpeedSet 1060 inkjet printing press for the packaging market. 

The event took place at Agfa’s Cambridge, U.K., manufacturing facility, where the company’s packaging and inkjet technology specialists highlighted the capability of the SpeedSet 1060 sheet-fed digital press to meet short-run packaging needs.

“The SpeedSet is set to be a game-changer in the packaging printing market,” said head of packaging at Agfa, Matt Brooks. “This fully digital packaging printing press merges the robustness and print excellence of an offset press with the compelling attributes of inkjet printing. It offers offset-like print quality, yet boasts shorter setup times, reduced material waste, and efficient variable data printing. On top of that, with its killer speed of 11,000 B1 sheets per hour, it is simply the fastest digital packaging press around. It will enable packaging converters to make their current operations more efficient. Print runs up to 5000 will be cheaper on the SpeedSet.” 


The SpeedSet accommodates a range of substrates, from folding carton and micro-flute to various paper types, making it suitable for applications like retail- or shelf-ready food and beverage packaging.

Agfa is currently finetuning the SpeedSet in collaboration with several early adopters.
