S-OneLP & CDA Partner to Launch CatPak™ eBeam Finishing System

Press release from the issuing company

Sarasota, Fla. – S-One Labels & Packaging is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Custom Design Applications (CDA) to develop the CatPak™ System.

CatPak™ is the full solution for coating and curing 30-inch flexible packaging films utilizing eBeam technology. EBeam is the state-of-the-art, high-demand finishing option for fast, clean, food-safe flex-pack films. CatPak™ brings all the key components together in one system.

Converters opt for eBeam because it offers a uniform, instantaneous cure that creates a food-compliant finished surface without post-cure time, and eBeam provides the same gloss and depth of image as reverse printed and laminated packaging. Plus, the CatPak™ System won’t damage HP Indigo ElectroInk, and it seamlessly supports fixtures like zippers and spouts.

The CatPak™ System includes the eBeam coater, Corona Treater and 30-inch web unwind and rewind modules integrated into the eBeam curing system base frame. The system can also be customized to include digital embellishing equipment. EBeam coatings and flexible packaging films will also be available through the CatPak™ System and S-OneLP to complete the full flex-pack printing and finishing solution.

“We are excited to combine CDA’s amazing ability to build high-quality, state-of-the-art equipment with S-OneLP’s extensive films and coatings expertise and offer to our customers the single most reliable high performing eBeam system for flex-pack applications,” says Ralph Giammarco, VP of S-One Labels & Packaging.
