Siegwerk will showcase some of its latest ink and coating developments for the labels and flexible packaging industries. The company will also give insights into its range of sustainable solutions for optimised packaging recyclability in the sense of a circular economy.

“Following this year’s show theme ‘The modern legends of print’, we will be presenting our newest solutions for the future of packaging printing at our booth,” said Guido Lander, vice president, business unit narrow web EMEA at Siegwerk. He added, “Visitors will also get hands-on insights into selected specialty products and inkjet solutions for label and packaging printing.” Some highlights include the company’s newly developed dual curing UV solutions for food and non-food applications, and special whites especially for shrink sleeves.

With Sicura Flex Dual Cure for non-food applications, Siegwerk will introduce a newly developed TMPTA-free system at the exhibition. Additionally, the latest version of the established Sicura Nutriflex LEDTec for food, pharmaceutical and hygiene packaging, will be displayed. Both ink series are suitable for dual curing with LED-UV and UV mercury lamps.

“LED-UV curing units typically use 50% less electrical energy than conventional UV mercury curing units. This makes it a more sustainable and in terms of rising and volatile energy costs, also a more economic alternative,” said Lander.“When switching from UV-mercury to LED-UV curing, a dual curing ink series is the optimal choice in this regard, as it is suitable for both technologies, thus avoiding double stocking as only one ink series is needed. The dual curing ink series have the same pigmentation like their conventionally UV mercury curing counter types, which simplifies the switch to LED-UV curing inks,” he added.

In addition, experts will provide insights into the company’s extensive activities enabling the development of sustainable packaging solutions in line with a circular economy. Besides, Siegwerk is one of the sponsors of the show’s new feature “Flexo’s Future”, a series of presentations and guided tours on expanded colour gamut (ECG) printing. On 12 and 13 September, visitors will be able to attend an ECG seminar to gain insights from packaging supply chain members on how using the fixed colour ECG set makes packaging printing more efficient and sustainable.

Kiran Deshpande of Siegwerk, who is one of the speakers and a colour management expert, will talk about a customer case showing how optimised ECG can help to achieve efficiency and sustainability improvements.
