Labelexpo Europe – Packprint Workshop returned

BELGIUM • The feature area “Packprint Workshop” is again set to be one of Labelexpo Europe’s key attractions. Developed and hosted in partnership with Nilpeter and Xeikon, it will give visitors the opportunity, to discover how to produce packaging using both digital and conventional printing. Nilpeter will demonstrate how to print flexible packaging and Xeikon will showcase carton printing. Being run twice daily at 11:00 and 15:00 (except once on the fourth day), the 30 minute workshop is complimentary to all show visitors.

Nilpeter’s FA-4* press will run various sachet jobs. Using inks and laminating adhesives from Flint Group’s Flexocure Ancora range, high performance, low migration UV levels may be achieved when correctly applied to suitable packaging structures. The Xeikon 3500 press runs this five-color (CMYK + orange) job at a speed of up to 19.2 m/min (63 fpm) and the technology is built on a fully rotary concept with variable repeat length. Consumables used include print media from Metsä Board and Stora Enso and varnish from Actega. Printed sheets will then be converted on the MBO stand (Hall 9 Stand A16), with die-cutting and creasing on a Bograma BSR 550 and folding and gluing using a Herzog+Heymann unit.
