US-based polypropylene, polyester, metallised, and bio-based films manufacturer Toray Plastics (America) has been selected to participate in the new HP Indigo Pack Ready community of film providers.
HP Indigo Pack Ready offers post-print solutions for HP Indigo digital presses that allow digital converters and printers to print, laminate, and pack on demand for immediate time-to-market.
As part of the deal, Toray Plastics will bring Lumirror PA66 PET film and Torayfan FMS and F62W OPP films to the HP Indigo Pack Ready digital ecosystem.
The company currently provides extrusion-coated polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, metallised, barrier, and sealant print-web film technologies to flexible packaging and label markets in North America.
Toray Plastics (America) industrial strategic alliance group sales director William Nelson said: “Leading consumer product goods companies and converters have relied on our film innovations to commercialise their projects effectively and efficiently for more than thirty years.
“Toray has been conducting research and development in the digital packaging arena since 2013, collaborating with customers who want to expand their packaging and label printing capabilities, including those who are interested in unique, custom-printed packaging, customer engagement programmes, and just-in-time and short-run projects.”
The company noted that if required it could make improvements to the films, which will join the HP Indigo Pack Ready digital ecosystem.
The films can be used for coffee, foods and nutraceuticals packaging, as well as labels on various consumer items, durable goods, and beverages.
