Digital inkjet for label printing
Labels are used for many different applications, including product identification, name tags, warning and hazard identification, promotions and as decals for product decoration. They are typically printed roll-to-roll, using a combination of conventional print processes including flexographic, letterpress, offset, gravure and screen print processes.
There is increasing demand for shorter run-lengths and special or customised designs, and a drive to increase the speed of design change and reduce label inventory levels. Digital printing is perfectly suited to meet these customer requirements and the development of hybrid printing solutions, like the Xaar Printbar System, means that for more and more label converters, it couldn't be easier to make the most of all that digital technology can offer.
