The Sun Automation Group, a worldwide leader in the supply of corrugated equipment, is set to unveil its pioneering Corrstream technology which is expected to revolutionise full colour printing onto corrugated packaging.
Sun is about to debut the first of its three Corrstream industrial digital single pass full colour corrugated printers. The printers offer the corrugated converting sector unrivalled speed, efficiency and print quality, bringing inkjet to the industry as a real alternative to traditional analogue methods.
As well as the key ability to ease the pressure on box makers’ costs at the lowest batch levels, the Corrstream printer allows for increased value added through print as well as the opportunity for convertors to reduce or remove traditional costs such as origination and plate making. In addition, further opportunities exist for corrugated to align with other packaging media to provide solutions for brand owner/retailer seasonal or event-based on-shelf promotions that require, for example, short-run or variable print capabilities.
Sun’s Global Corrstream Product Manager, Sean Moloney explains: "Corrstream is the realisation of industrial, single pass digital printing in corrugated and has the potential to be a real game changer.
"We are seeing the benefits of inkjet in other areas of packaging and we are proud to introduce a robust and reliable machine solution that many box makers will find familiar in use. We look forward to demonstrating not only the printer but also the workflow opportunities that exist as converters aim to capitalise on the new opportunities now present through this technology."
