KPG will Introduce DIGICASE, their digital printing system for printers of artificial casings, at Labelexpo Europe 2019. Launched this spring, the system being demonstrated in Brussels will also include additional features enabling label production.

For many years, printers of artificial food casings have identified the potential benefits of being able to access ‘short run’ production capability, including instant image change with virtually no material waste or down-time.  DIGICASE is an environmentally friendly digital system for printing polyamide casings and bags, food packaging films and plastic casings in full colour, plus white.

With immediate variable data changes and DRAG – DROP- PRINT user friendly software, the technology is ideal for JIT orders, language and code variations, as well customer proofing.  Dual-pass and single-pass printing in four web widths, with a choice of print resolution and operating speeds optimises production flexibility.

Incorporating the very latest user interface currently available, job changes and pdf handling is effortless. Optional features include fully automatic production, flexo print heads and a CID (chilled central impression drum) version.

Working closely with KPG, Resino Trykfarver  have developed a specialist ink for use with DIGICASE, enabling digitally printed polyamide casings to meet existing meat packaging standards, in terms of shirring, filling and autoclave processing.
