By providing a combination of best-in-class ink performance, high product safety and continuous support and guidance, Siegwerk is making every effort to help its customers address upcoming trends and to meet their specific needs with cutting-edge ink solutions.
“We are always ‘Focused on your needs’ and are exactly analyzing the requirements and needs every single customer has,” said Michael Mueller-Samson, head of BU Narrow Web EMEA at Siegwerk, about the motto for the show. “That’s why platforms like Labelexpo are ideal touchpoints for us to share ideas and discuss newest challenges and requirements with our customers and other industry experts.”
Siegwerk attaches great importance to open dialog with its customers, and different customers have different needs.
Siegwerk knows about the differences between customers and therefore always aims to provide customized solutions meeting the specific circumstances and requirements to enable the customer’s achievement of greater levels of efficiency and safety. The company has already launched several solutions that were developed to help customers keep track of future-focused industry trends.
It offers for example a complete range of migration optimized inks, gloss and matte varnishes, as well as metallic inks for all printing processes that are BPA-free and meet the needs of food and other sensitive packaging applications.
“Our newest developed ink series for UV flexo printing is called Sicura Nutriflex PRO. It offers highly pigmented colors that are HD-certified while being suitable for all food and pharma-related applications,” said Rolf Montag, product manager BU Narrow Web at Siegwerk. “Furthermore, our UV offset series Sicura Nutriboard 2 for paper and selected films as well as Sicura Nutriplast 2 for plastics are both excellent ink solutions for heavy-duty applications.“
Siegwerk will also showcase the latest developments of metallic inks and different OPVs of its Sicura Nutriflex LEDTec range, the first-ever migration optimized LED UV flexo series for food and pharma packaging launched on the market.
“We also develop high quality inkjet inks for labels and are working on some for packaging applications too,” added Montag.
With Sicura Nutri Jet UV-Inkjet, Siegwerk provides a low migration inkjet ink series for food and pharma packaging that works with different inkjet printing head technologies and delivers the same CMYK color positioning as flexo inks. With Sicura Jet low-odor the company also adds the only non-CMR UV-inkjet inks that are designed for printing labels for household, hygiene and industrial packaging to its offering.
With the latest launch of the low migration UV offset ink range Sicura Litho NutriEco, Siegwerk again demonstrated its role in terms of product safety and sustainability. This innovative UV printing ink system was shortly awarded Gold status of the “Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certification” by the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA), which makes Siegwerk the first ink manufacturer offering a low migration UV ink range complying with the highest international environmental research-related product standards.
When formulating its inks, Siegwerk is not only looking for optimum performance based on customers’ processes but also to ensure that inks are safe to use for desired packaging applications.
The company also offers customers services related to guidance and support, for example in terms of process optimization, complexity reduction and efficiency gains for printing shops. With its On-Site Consulting offering, Siegwerk expands its services for customers to the improvement of the individual performance at the customers’ sites.
For narrow web and sheetfed printing, the company’s team focuses on ink room management as well as the conception and installation of dispensers.. A variety of trainings for example on colorimetry or ink organization complement the services offered.
