The company will use this opportunity to present its customized inkjet ink and service portfolio including its latest developments and innovations for digital printing.
Visitors will be able to experience the wide-ranging application possibilities of Siegwerk’s inkjet ink solutions for personalized packaging and labels at booth 440 in hall A6.
Next to the company’s portfolio of established analog inks for printers, Siegwerk also has a strong footprint in digital printing today offering UV and water-based inkjet ink solutions for narrow web and large width packaging to equipment manufacturers for both packaging and label applications.
“As InPrint is a leading international trade show for industrial printing technology – especially focusing on digital finishing processes – it is an ideal platform for us to share ideas, exchange technology know-how and discuss the newest challenges with our customers, machine manufacturers as well as other industry partners," said Matthieu Carni, director business unit inkjet at Siegwerk.
Over the years, Siegwerk has invested in the expansion of its digital printing segment. By acquiring Agfa Graphics’ UV inkjet business for packaging and label printing in March 2018, Siegwerk strengthened its existing UV inkjet portfolio.
Today, the company offers a unique variety of high-quality UV inkjet solutions for all application areas in label and packaging printing including standard and sensitive applications as well as primers and OPVs suitable for various scopes.
With Sicura NutriJet the company, for example, provides an inkjet ink series for sensitive food and pharma packaging that works with different inkjet printing head technologies.
Siegwerk’s portfolio covers both UV inkjet solutions for a wide range of applications including self-adhesive labels, wet-glue labels for beverages, direct printing on 3D-packaging objects or blister and aluminum lids for pharma and food products as well as customized water-based inkjet ink solutions for tissue printing and digital printing on flexible packaging.
“As one of the leading providers of printing inks for labels and packaging applications for all kinds of printing technologies, we don’t believe in ‘one fits all’ solutions as every application requires different ink characteristics,” Carni said.
Siegwerk is working on the development of water-based inkjet inks for packaging applications like flexible packaging, tissue or corrugated board.
“We anticipate first developments of water-based inkjet inks for flexible packaging to be announced around drupa and Interpack next year,” Carni said.
