DS Smith leads the way with corrugated printer from Fujifilm

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Leading packaging company is first in the world to invest in combination of Inca Onset S40i, low odour inks and automated handling system

Fujifilm today announces that UK-based DS Smith has made a significant new investment in a flatbed digital printing system that will deliver further improvements in quality for its customers, as well as ensure greater production efficiency.

The supply cycle specialist has chosen Fujifilm‘s corrugated solution – a combination of the Inca Onset S40i digital printer, Uvijet OL inks and fully automated handling system – which has been installed at a Display production site in the UK. DS Smith is the first packaging company in the world to place an order for the complete offering, which will enable it to produce a range of single and double-sided corrugated display and packaging applications, at a productivity of over 500m2/hr.

David Atchinson, Display Manufacturing Manager at DS Smith, said the automatic handling system was a big factor in their decision to opt for Fujifilm. He said: “The fully automated handling system will maximise productivity and allow our operators, after starting the run, to focus their attention elsewhere as the print job is running.?

“We were also very impressed to see how effectively the system handles single or double sided print, enabling a wide variety of board types to be perfectly printed whilst being held flat on the table.?

He concludes: “Exceptional print quality, production speed and reliability were other key drivers when we reviewed the various offerings. Fujifilm’s solution was the only one that easily ticked all these boxes for us. Finally, the Uvijet OL low odour ink will allow maximum functionality, delivering a superb gloss with excellent finishing properties. Overall, a brilliant solution.?
