Fujifilm is launching a new food-safe ink described as significantly extending the application versatility of the Jet Press 720S for packaging production, suitable for finishing applications on carton board or synthetic media up to 600 microns thick.

The company explains the new food safe ink forms a key additional component of the Jet Press folding carton solution, making it the first B2 digital press approved for primary food packaging. It also helps meet the growing requirement for a digital solution to produce folding cartons for the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics/household/personal care markets.

The low migration, aqueous food safe ink has been specially formulated to work with inline (via a bridge) and nearline UV or aqueous coating, explains Fujifilm. For companies looking to diversify into packaging, the Jet Press folding carton solution can also incorporate Phoenix imposition and planning software from Tilia Labs, optimizing how jobs are collated.
