A deep dive on a diverse group of low to mid-range and high volume inkjet solutions for flexible packaging.
Part 1 of the series on Flexible Packaging discusses the market, major print process used and the positioning for inkjet.
No surprise that décor printers are looking into digital print processes to better serve today’s markets. Inkjet is going to play a key role as the technology best suited for the various markets.
With the ColorStream 8000 Canon plans to build on the strengths of the previous generations, while expanding the application range and productivity.
The Pro Z75 has been eagerly anticipated as it is targeting the most dynamic market in printing press technology: production sheet-fed inkjet.
Ralf Schlozer examines considerations for investing in inkjet for corrugated packaging in the second part of a series.
Although corrugated seems an unlikely market for inkjet, inkjet presses rapidly gained popularity. Find out why.
In a series of articles we look at inkjet printing technology in several packaging segments. Last time we had a look at the large market for folding carton print – today it is a bit more specialised: beverage can printing.
High speed inkjet already outstrips most sheetfed offset. With run lengths falling, do we really need to go faster?

Look at your production capabilities and especially at the sales & distribution channel to generate the orders. Like getting through the COVID-19 crisis: it takes a common effort.
In previous editions of this series I wrote about the main applications production inkjet is being used for, focusing mostly on roll-fed inkjet – the dominant production method so far. This is different for cutsheet inkjet, which is far more versatile and is used across a number of applications.
For a young company, Mouvent has a remarkably strong heritage in digital printing. With the great flexibility and scalability of the Mouvent clusters it is no surprise that Mouvent is aiming for a much wider range of products such as folding carton, flexible packaging and corrugated.
