Miyakoshi Printing Machinery has launched the MJP30AXF water-based inkjet press for flexible packaging. The press uses water-based ink, which makes it safe for food packaging.
The MJP30AXF features a 30-inch (750mm) print width and runs at 50 metres/minute with a resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 DPI using the latest inkjet printhead technology. The five-colour press features CMYK+WW, and can be used on materials ranging from 12 to 100 microns. The press also features an integrated unwinder, corona treatment, pre-coater and rewinder.
The press offers optimized production, including the ability to batch and produce a variety of small jobs on a single web, while the repeated images along with uninterrupted tracking bar manage the post-press equipment. It also features automatic registration control and missing nozzle compensation, which helps minimize printing errors, according to the company.
“Currently the printing of flexible packaging is dominated by traditional analog printing technologies such as gravure and flexography, which enable very high productivity at low cost for long run printing jobs,” said the company in a statement. “The challenge for these analog solutions today is that marketing focus has shifted from mass production to a more personalized approach. This requires brands to create an ever-increasing variety of products produced in smaller quantities. This trend has led to a constant reduction in the size of production lots for which analog devices are not well suited.”
