Labels & Flexible Packaging — Reality vs Impact

May 18 @ 12:30 - 13:30 UTC+0

How big is the market? What is the impact of going down this road for a commercial printer? What knowledge base is required for operators, sales, CSR’s etc.? What does the CapEx look like? What finishing equipment is required?

“Digital presses are producing sellable product in the 160 fpm range”, states Victor Gomez, Director of Industrial Labels for Epson America. “What is the incremental benefit to the converter of even more speed to rival their existing – often already fully depreciated – flexo presses? What is more important to the business owner is throughput. And that entails a host of other production issues that don’t usually make it to marketing pieces such as uptime, maintenance routines, and ease of use. If the mechanism for higher linear speed entails adding more complexity to the system – more printheads, for example – the overall benefit is actually much smaller. Something similar applies to resolution. Does a race to higher dpi result in better looking labels? Does a higher dpi matter if it gets lost in the viewing distance of the typical consumer when picking up a product from a shelf?”
