The C550 press will allow SAICA to expand its customer offering with digital solutions. The new digital press works alongside its HQPP flexo presses and will enable them to continue spearheading the field of corrugated print.
With the new addition, the company will also be able to offer its customers faster time-to-market, short lead times, and sustainable digitally printed packaging, based on HP’s printing technology and true water-based inks. This single-pass press will also open new opportunities with quality packaging on coated and uncoated liners, to give its customers better flexibility and a wider range of applications for their campaigns, including food-compliance packaging.
“We are committed to using the best technologies to drive our group box strategy. We see a definite fit for the HP C550 in our Viana plant handling the volumes that need to be produced to the highest quality,” said Félix San Miguel, General Manager, SAICA PACK Viana. “The C550 water-based inks and print quality are a key component for our customers and in driving SAICA’s commitment to key environmental vectors such as sustainability and reduction in water consumption. We are committed to offering the market solutions that seek maximum customization and flexibility in packaging.”
