EB Flexo Innovation
As a premier partner with Technosolutions, INX is excited to launch our next generation Gelflex™ series of EB flexo inks. Combining Technosolutions’ patented technology with INX’s expertise, INX Gelflex offers superior low viscosity, high strength, and stability that allows end users to reach their maximum potential with a groundbreaking, affordable electron beam solution well suited for safe food packaging. The inks have significantly reduced VOCs compared to solvent products, and help minimize concerns with CO2 emission reporting and explosion proofing your facilities.
Labelexpo Europe attendees will have the opportunity to talk to INX personnel about their challenges and will learn more about UV/EB products. This includes the INXCure™ LW series of offset inks cured by LED and HUV, which improves uptime, reduces waste, and lowers press variance. There are cutting edge advantages with a wide range of INXFlex™ UV flexo products, including ultra high shrink, High Transfer Label and Low Migration inks for food packaging. A full complement of rotary screen products is available, including whites and tactile coatings.
INX’s award-winning EB Low Migration solution will be at the show. The SGIA 2018 Product of the Year for Digital Inks – Industrial and Packaging, Prodigy™ EGBA is a premium Electron Beam inkjet ink used in Uteco’s GAIA printer. It offers solid benefits such as strong adhesion to a range of traditional label material and film, with high chemical and scratch resistance. Various inkjet UV LED, water-based and EB inks will be presented that are designed to run on a variety of printers with FUJIFILM Dimatrix Samba, Kyocera, Ricoh Gen5 and Xaar printheads.
For brand owners and package converters wanting to improve their sustainability goals, INXhrc™ natural-based inks offer substantial performance benefits. Designed with clean and renewable ingredients, these inks improve production efficiencies, increase ink mileage with less resource consumption and waste generation, and contain fewer chemicals compared to traditional inks, thereby reducing regulatory risk. INXhrc can help reduce a company’s CO2 footprint by 25 to 30 percent in comparison to standard aqueous inks.
The HMJ200 Small Batch ink dispenser will also be demonstrated. A good choice for the Tag & Label market, it is fully automated to dispense up to 14 valve stations. Two-stage pulse valves ensure fast dispensing, combined with excellent precision and repeatability. Available for water-based or UV Curable inks, it also offers an automated valve cleaning system.
