European digital printer manufacturer, New Solution, has appointed Diecut Global as an official dealer for its New Solution Multi printer aimed at the corrugated, retail and packaging markets. The NS Multi is a high-speed printer for direct printing to porous based substrates such as corrugated board and folding carton, both sheet and pre-cut. It can print onto a wide range of medias including corrugated material, board and card at speeds of up to 300mm per second. It has a maximum print width of 1066mm (42″) and resolution of 1600 x 1600 dpi with environmentally friendly, dye-based inks. Launched earlier this year, the NS Multi incorporates super-fast Memjet print heads.
Stewart Bell, VP Sales UK, Ireland and North America for New Solution explains, “The demand for personalisation, versioning, branding and short run printed packaging is rapidly increasing and therefore the ability to print directly onto boxes is becoming more important. Packaging and box suppliers are also having to offer extra services to keep up with growing global competition and so by offering short run digitally printed packaging they can address this new market with the NS Multi. As Diecut UK is well established in this marketplace, we felt the fit was right and are delighted to welcome them on board at such an exciting time in our industry.”
Diecut Global has first-hand experience of developing and bringing to market their Goldline die-cutter for corrugated and rigid substrates and recently launched the next generation Goldline Evolution. As innovators in their market, they felt the NS Multi was perfect for their customers.
Steve Waterhouse, Managing Director of Diecut Global said, “Digital printing is changing the way our industry works – and it’s changing quickly. With traditional methods of print there are other processes involved which include an array of ancillary equipment – for example producing plates for litho, screens for screenprinting and stereos for flexo. With digital print, we can produce millions of colours and unlimited variations with just one machine and no extra ancillary costs. By using the NS Multi to complement their existing machines, our customers can offer digital services alongside their more traditional print methods. We’re excited about showing our customers this new digital printer.”
