3) Taking UV inkjet to the next level
UV inkjet presses for label and package have been on the market for a number of years. In the early days, whilst showing promise, they rarely delivered the quality and reliability to be taken seriously by most converters. Digital technology was generally viewed as great for very short runs and personalised, potentially gimmicky projects, but not relevant in the mainstream market. Typically the market for digital printing was dominated by toner-based systems, where the quality was very good and a wide range of substrates was known to be available. In this “niche” market, the high running costs, low speed and complexity of these devices was deemed acceptable, as run lengths were very short and, crucially, margins were high.
