AB Graphic International (Elgin, Illinois) has developed the ILC760 – a new inline coating machine for fully integrated inline coating on the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press. Supporting both water-based or UV coating, the ILC760 is a cost-effective, easy-to-operate, top coating technology with slitting and rewinding suitable for production of unsupported film applications such as sleeves, IML, wraparound labels and various flexible packaging top-coated applications. The 760mm-wide ILC760 joins the Digicon 3000 in AB Graphic’s growing finishing portfolio for mid-web digital production.
“The demand for digitally-printed packaging is growing well beyond the pressure-sensitive label market into areas such as sleeves, IML and various flexible packaging applications,” said Tony Bell, AB Graphic Sales Director. “AB Graphic is pleased to continue collaborating with HP Indigo to redefine the boundaries of digital production by offering cost-effective innovations for simplified and efficient production.” Yogev Barak, HP Indigo Director of Product Development, added: “AB Graphic has a long-standing strategic relationship with HP Indigo, and with this inline solution we’re excited once again to bring a novel solution addressing the needs of the packaging industry.”
