Within packaging print the race is on to combine the flexibility of inkjet technology with volume production. For converters, the largest volume increase for the next 5 years in this value-adding technology will be in corrugated board work.
Food packaging represents one of the largest and most compelling applications, but one that presents a critical additional technical challenge – ensuring printed inks do not migrate through the substrate into the food.
In this exclusive White Paper, sponsored by HP, Smithers examines this water-based inkjet platform, its advantages when printing on porous corrugated substrates compared to UV-curing systems, initial deployments in primary fruit packaging, and the wider commercial landscape for inkjet printing on corrugated media.
