Hybrid printing is a hot issue in the printing industry. Many companies see this way of printing as something new, but at DG press we have been busy with hybrid printing since the development of the Gazelle web offset press in the 1980s and the Vision machine in the 1990s. We know the benefits of hybrid printing like no other.Read more about hybrid printing
Food safety in printing flexible packages
Ink migration is a prime concern for brand owners and converters. The slightest hint of change on a packed product could have huge ramifications and cause long-term damage to a brand – sometimes even destroying the business.
EB/UV offset is a certified and working solution for converters operating in the food packaging industry with a wide variety of proven chemistries (inks and coatings) and curing solutions available. Both curing options can be applied to our machines and meet the requirements of food safety.
Increasing environmental awareness, legislation, pressure from consumers, NGO’s and shareholders have all resulted in ‘sustainability’ and ‘social responsibility’ being at the very top of all brand owners’ corporate objectives.
Compared to other processes, web offset provides an environmentallyfriendly process without residual ink waste or solvents and is a proven to be a VOCfree printing technique (Volatile Organic Compound).
Development of new functionalities
All of our machines have been designed specifically to meet the demands of our clients. Every press is custom made, this offers possibilities to develop new modules or functionalities specifically for your production needs.Request information
Sleeve offset technology
This technology makes it very easy for operators to change-over to a new print job. Have a look at the video to get an idea of the advantages of Sleeve offset technology. Here we show how an operator removes the plate cylinder and mounts a new offset plate on the sleeve. Once the new image carrier has been mounted, the sleeve is being inserted in the printing unit and it’s ready to go. This is only possible when printing in the same repeat length; otherwise the rubber blanket has to be replaced by a new size, but this is just as easy!
