Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has now sold two of these industrial digital printing systems in the US.
Arkay Packaging is a third-generation family-run company with production plants in Hauppauge, NY, and Roanoke, VA, as well as branches in New York City.
Its portfolio includes premium folding cartons for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and wines and spirits.
“We are highly motived to use the latest digital technologies for packaging printing to develop new business models, to future-proof ourselves, and to set ourselves apart from the competition,” said Walt Shiels, chief operating officer of Arkay.
The Primefire 106 is based on the platform of the Speedmaster XL 106 and can thus be integrated into Arkay Packaging’s offset environment.
Also, the digital printing system offers top quality with 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and is designed for a volume of up to 1.5 million sheets per month.
Its press room is already home to four Speedmaster XL 106 presses.
“Heidelberg now has several Primefire 106 installations on three continents where the industrial digital printing system is being sold today,” said Montserrat Peidro-Insa, head of business unit digital at Heidelberg.
