Flexible Packaging Arena

A demonstration and overview of two conventional and digital press lines producing indirect food contact flexible packaging to the latest GMP standards.

 

  • See conventional and digital press lines producing indirect food contact flexible packaging to the latest GMP standards.
  • Get new insights from the industry-wide UVFoodSafe initiative into best practice for UV curing of inks and coatings on onto indirect food contact labels and flexible packaging.
  • This covers all stages from designing for low migration, to materials selection and treatment, food compliant ink selection and inline UV cure dose measurement.

 

DEMO TIMES
11am, 1pm and 3pm
Location: stand 11A50 (Hall 11)

Processes demonstrated will include:

  • UV flexographic printing of flexible packaging on a BOBST M6 press incorporating inline UV dose measurement and food packaging compliant UV inks.
  • Digital printing on a Xeikon CX500 press with inline construction of food packaging compliant stand-up pouches.

In  addition: 

  • HP Indigo will present a full booth tour including live demonstrations of digital pouch making showcasing the HP Indigo 20000 digital press, Pack Ready Lamination, and the Karlville pouch-making machine to help converters reach double digit profitable growth.

Free to attend for all Labelexpo Europe 2019 registered visitors.
