Essentra Packaging has invested in a new Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press at its Bradford site, marking the first installation of the machine in the packaging industry in the UK.
Underpinning Essentra Packaging’s goal of pioneering new technologies for its customers, the press unlocks high quality folding carton production by combining the quality, speed and precision of offset printing with the versatility of digital printing.
Andrew Hopkins, General Manager UK & Ireland, said, “At Essentra, we’ve never been afraid to break new ground and find innovative ways to add value for our customers. Our investment in the new press at our Bradford production site is the latest example of how we’re building one of the most solid all-round offerings in the pharmaceutical, personal care and beauty packaging industries.”
Mark King, Global Head of Technical, Essentra Packaging, added, “Something our customers come to learn about Essentra is that while we’re always looking to push technological boundaries, an area we will never make a compromise on is quality. When it’s so vital to our customers and their commercial performance, it’s absolutely essential to us as a packaging manufacturer. We have to be able to impress on every single print run without exception. With the new press, the technology automatically verifies registration, checks nozzle condition and detects print issues. Add in how the technology opens up amazing possibilities in variable printing, serialisation capabilities and all with a wide colour gamut, and we’re talking an enormous breakthrough in quality, service and print performance. We’re challenging our customers and the wider market to see the difference for themselves.”
