Agfa Graphics is pleased to announce that IPEX
attendees and visitors to the Agfa Graphics stand will get their first look at the
new :Dotrix Modular LM and the low-migration packaging applications this digital
press is designed to handle. Printing with low-migration inks is crucial in the food
service industry, ensuring that no contamination occurs from the ink on the
outside of the packaging to the food inside.

Agfa’s new low-migration ink, :Agorix LM, will be featured in demonstrations
taking place on the Agfa stand during IPEX in Birmingham, UK, 18-25 May
2010. The demonstrations will emphasise the benefits that the 63cm wide single
pass :Dotrix offers for producers of flexible packaging, folding cartons and shelf-ready packaging.

“As an innovator in the development of industrial UV inkjet, Agfa is poised to
define the most practical and efficient methods available for package printing,” said Jan de Vooght, head of sales and marketing, Industrial Single Pass Inkjet. “UV inkjet printing methods are green and safe and are considered the future of
the package printing industry. Agfa has worked closely with end users, print
head manufacturers and industry experts to launch the low-migration
application. To packaging designers, printers, converters and brand owners this
is the most advanced and most cost-efficient system on the market for short and
medium runs of high-quality printing.”

The new :Dotrix Modular LM on the booth will also feature:

  • Six-colour printing, up to 90% reproduction of Pantone® colours through the use of :Apogee™ ColorTune™ Spot and :Apogee ColorTune CMM
  • Medium web (63cm) single pass inkjet UV printing at 32m/min
  • In-line rotary sheet cutter and stacker with variable sheet size cutting for folding carton and plastic substrates
