“This machine fits well in our workflow as we see it as a complimentary piece for our extensive list of converting machines,” said Robert Niedermeier, GM, Valley Container. “The machine is very flexible in just about every way. Specifically, we’re able to slip sample runs in on existing sheets simply through the Durst Workflow software.”
Located in Bridgeport, CT, in their 120,000 square foot facility, Valley Container enjoys an extensive history in the packaging industry, going beyond standard corrugated applications offering corrugated products, shipping boxes, paperboard products and the design and manufacturing of high-end graphic point of purchase displays.
Valley Container has partnered with Durst for their printing equipment needs, with the recent purchase and installation of the digital Durst Delta WT 250. The Delta WT 250 is a leading corrugated and display packaging print solution featuring eco-friendly Durst Water Technology. It is suited for a range of applications and offers the ability to produce high-quality output in standard or custom sizes from a batch size of one.
Once Valley Container had an idea of the digital corrugated printer landscape, they needed to decide on single-pass or multi-pass technology and with their unique footprint in the display world, multi-pass technology best fit their needs. In addition, to maintain their commitment to sustainability, Valley Container also researched an innovative solution for UV or water technology, while still being able to maintain the quality print they are known for.
“That was a no brainer for me, as I felt that Durst Water Technology inkset gave a better print quality without any of the inherent risks,” said Niedermeier. “The Delta WT 250 gives us the ability to provide a sustainable product with its water technology inkset, all the while showcasing our creative capabilities to their highest levels.”
The system prints from flexo quality up to litho quality with odorless ink that is completely free of hazardous labeling and comply with the strictest health and safety regulations.
