Investment in low migration

UK based The Wilkins Group has invested more than £2 million in a new printing press in a bid to not only increase capacity, but to also offer safer food packaging, with its new investment promising 100 per cent low migration.

The print and packaging specialist has invested in a Komori Lithrone GX range printing press to increase capacity and enhance the value of its products by using the machine’s coating units to create printing effects through special varnishing techniques.

Not only does the equipment give customers a more premium product, but the new investment is also designed to be ultra safe for producing food packaging, as the machine is 100 per cent low migration.

With the capability of bolting on seven different colours and a built in fast drying function, the machine can print up to 18,000 sheets an hour.

In addition, the printing press also has a reduced environmental footprint.
