Founded in 1935, Jaakkoo-Taara Oy aims to be a pioneer in both service and technology. It employs 115 people and its annual turnover is €16.5 million. Each year it prints more than 20,000 packaging and printed projects.
“We wanted to produce high print quality combined with increased efficiency and the ability to produce both cartons and labels,” said Thomas Brusila, managing director of Jaakkoo-Taara Oy. “The new system will enable us to introduce serialized pharmaceutical packaging and personalized packaging and labels. With digital we can also easily produce security and tamper evident features, and we think we will be able to add value by offering that.”
Xeikon’s Folding Carton Suite is ideal for high quality, cost-effective short runs of folding cartons and labels. Jaakkoo-Taara Oy’s system includes a Xeikon 3500 that prints at up to 600 m²/hr in 5-colors. Its fifth color station can be used to apply special colors and effects.
The suite offers a basic press configuration equipped with a fifth color in combination with CMYK. The extended color gamut ensures the accurate production of a wider range of brand colors. The fifth color could be orange, red, blue, green or white. Jaakkoo-Taara Oy can also offer digital spot varnish with Xeikon’s Durable Clear Toner for scuff and scratch resistance and UV or water based varnish.
