Digital printing introduction

DataLase’s new inline digital printing technology enables brand owners, co-packers and converters to generate high quality graphics while minimising costs and boosting supply chain efficiencies.

The solution uses patented laser reactive pigments. When incorporated into a coating, or conventionally printed onto a package and exposed to a low power CO2 or NIR diode array laser on a packing line, it generates a colour change reaction resulting in a high definition, premium quality digital print.

It can be applied on a variety of primary and secondary packaging materials, to enable the diode laser to print text and graphics up to 100mm high and 2m/second with one laser.

Enabling high speed printing, the system is essentially an inkless print solution removing the requirement for consumables at the point of packing and filling or converter.
