V-Shapes introduces VS Dflex for nearline sachet printing

May 12, 2021  By PrintAction Staff

V-Shapes, a supplier of single-dose packaging solutions, launches the V-Shapes VS Dflex nearline reel-to-reel printer for printing the top layer of its single-dose sachets. The sachets are opened with a single gesture using one hand.

Powered by Memjet DuraFlex, this printing system makes it easy to print flexible packaging onsite, thereby eliminating the need to outsource printing or to tie up other printing equipment in the plant, especially for shorter runs of customized sachets.

VS Dflex inks were designed for food packaging and formulated for quick drying after printing, allowing the substrate to be ready for use with the V-Shapes Alpha fill and seal packaging/converting machine.

“We have always had an objective of making high-quality printing available for our packaging/converting machines, to meet customer demand for faster time to market, personalization and more,” says Christian Burattini, CEO of V-Shapes. “We accomplished that earlier this year with the integration of the TrojanLabel T2 high volume digital label press into our V-Shapes Prime single-lane packaging machine, and we have plans to integrate in-line printing into our six-lane Alpha machine as well. But for those Alpha machines already in the field or that will be acquired prior to availability of inline printing, we have developed VS Dflex, a more productive reel-to-reel printing solution that makes it easier for packaging converters/fillers to accomplish the complete manufacturing process for our unique single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint. In this configuration, the bottom layer of substrate is printed inline in black only.”
