UNILIN and Agfa combined their efforts to investigate the feasibility of deploying inkjet printing for high-volume, high-speed production printing of decor paper used for laminate flooring and furniture.
The combination of dedicated, conventionally coated primers from UNILIN and perfectly matched Agfa pigmented inkjet inks delivers a wide colour gamut with amazing print quality and low ink consumption. These water-based ink-primer sets will be competing head-to-head with high-volume gravure printing.
‘Integration within existing manufacturing facilities is easy as this innovative technology is fully compatible with conventional processing including impregnation, pressing, cutting and milling,’ said Jasmine Geerinckx, business development manager UNILIN, division technologies.
Tom Cloots, director industrial inkjet Agfa added, ‘As it is a digital process, inkjet printing can be used during the full life cycle of a design – from the start-up with a very small run, through high-volume production, up to the last few print batches when a specific design is being phased out. This flexibility enables a quick response to market needs, while minimising unprofitable stock levels.’ The solutions will be presented at InPrint, Munich, 12-14 November.
