Roll-to-Roll Single Pass Inkjet Printing
PPSI has developed a high speed inkjet web press design based upon modular componenets.
Shown above is an example with a 16 inch wide web. The system prints CYMK plus 2 spot colors at speeds up to 80 ft/min (24 m/min). The system includes a digital web steering system, a corona pretreatment station and an 8000 watt UV curing station. The web press is available in widths from 2.7 inches (70.5mm) to 36 inches (915mm). Please call PPSI for more details.
On Demand Packaging Customization
Shown below is another system developed for high speed package mass customization. The system is designed to run in line with a packaging machine allowing each bag to be custom printed. The system prints on the backside of the clear outer layer and then laminates the outer layer to the inner barrier layer as shown in the flow diagram. In this way the ink is captured and never comes into contact with the bag contents or the end user. The system has been designed to print on common outer layer packaging materials such as BOPP (bi-axially oriented polypropylene) and includes a corona pretreatment system to enhance image quality. The system includes a positive pressure enclosure and has been designed to generate high quality printing even when operated in dusty packaging environments. Please call PPSI for more details.
