Press release from the issuing company

Mortsel, Belgium - Agfa Graphics today announced that IPEX attendees and visitors to the Agfa Graphics stand will get their first look at the new :Dotrix Modular LM and the low-migration packaging applications this digital press is designed to handle. Printing with low-migration inks is crucial in the food service industry, ensuring that no contamination occurs from the ink on the outside of the packaging to the food inside.

Agfa's new low-migration ink, :Agorix LM, will be featured in demonstrations taking place on the Agfa stand during IPEX in Birmingham, UK, 18-25 May 2010. The demonstrations will emphasise the benefits that the 63cm wide single pass :Dotrix offers for producers of flexible packaging, folding cartons and shelf ready packaging .

"As an innovator in the development of industrial UV inkjet, Agfa is poised to define the most practical and efficient methods available for package printing", said Jan de Vooght, Head of Sales and Marketing, Industrial Single Pass Inkjet. "UV inkjet printing methods are green and safe and are considered the future of the package printing industry. Agfa has worked closely with end users, print head manufacturers and industry experts to launch the low migration application. To packaging designers, printers, converters and brand owners this is the most advanced and most cost efficient system on the market for short and medium runs of high quality printing."

The new :Dotrix Modular LM on the booth will also feature:
- 6-colour printing, up to 90% reproduction of Pantone colours through the use of :Apogee ColorTune Spot and :Apogee ColorTune CMM
