Agfa Gevaert : Unveils SpeedSet 1060 Water-Based Inkjet Press, Revolutionizing Packaging Printing

Dec 15, 2023

Agfa Gevaert : Unveils SpeedSet 1060 Water-Based Inkjet Press, Revolutionizing Packaging Printing December 15, 2023 at 05:11 am EST Share At an exclusive event for packaging converters and print service providers, Agfa, a leading manufacturer of innovative printing solutions, today unveiled its pioneering SpeedSet 1060 inkjet printing press for the packaging market. The event took place at Agfa's Cambridge manufacturing facility, where the company's packaging and inkjet technology specialists highlighted the capability of the SpeedSet 1060 sheet-fed digital press to meet short-run packaging needs while setting new benchmarks in printing performance and efficiency. Industry experts discussed trends in packaging and retail-ready solutions, providing valuable insights into staying ahead in the dynamic packaging industry. A live demo provided a up-close look at the technology and showcased the press's revolutionary speed and unmatched print quality. "The SpeedSet is set to be a game-changer in the packaging printing market", said Head of Packaging at Agfa, Matt Brooks. "This fully digital packaging printing press merges the robustness and print excellence of an offset press with the compelling attributes of inkjet printing. It offers offset-like print quality yet boasts shorter setup times, reduced material waste, and efficient variable data printing. On top of that, with its killer speed of 11,000 B1 sheets per hour, it is simply the fastest digital packaging press around. It will enable packaging converters to make their current operations more efficient. Print runs up to 5000 will be cheaper on the SpeedSet." The SpeedSet accommodates a wide range of substrates, from folding carton and micro-flute to various paper types, making it suitable for applications like retail- or shelf-ready food and beverage packaging. Its water-based inks, primer and varnish are environmentally friendly and comply with food-safety regulations. The event not only served as a platform for industry professionals to explore the transformative potential of the SpeedSet 1060, but also offered insights into the engineering excellence behind the printing press, provided the opportunity to engage with specialists, inspect print samples, and facilitated meaningful discussions with fellow professionals about the possibilities and future of digital packaging printing. Agfa is currently finetuning the SpeedSet in collaboration with several early adopters.
