The Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), a division of Barry-Wehmiller and a global supplier of high-performance flexographic printing equipment, has announced its Fusion C is now capable of running Gelflex-EB CI flexo printing inks at 400 m/min.
“Offering our customers the ability to print Gelflex-EB CI flexo inks is important,” said Rodney Pennings, PCMC’s printing, coating and laminating sales director. “As the market continues to evaluate more sustainable and recyclable packaging structures, customers are also considering alternative ink systems, which will allow them to reduce their volatile organic compounds. By moving away from solvent-based ink systems, printers can remove solvents at the source. Water-based inks and EB curable inks both fill this need.”
Gelflex-EB ink technology offers printers a cost-effective path to gain high-resolution print quality that removes more than 90 per cent of solvents. It is safe for food packaging and can be used in both traditional reverse-print laminations or as a surface-print ink on multi-layer monomaterial recyclable structures.
