European digital printer manufacturer New Solution has appointed Diecut Global as an official dealer for its Multi printer, aimed at the corrugated, retail and packaging markets. Offering inspections, machine sales, expert advice, consultancy and servicing, Diecut Global is one of the leading suppliers to the corrugated and packaging markets, with over 20 years' industry experience.
The NS Multi is a high speed printer for direct printing to porous based substrates such as corrugated board and folding card, both sheet and pre-cut. It can print onto a wide range of medias including corrugated material, board and card at tremendous speeds of up to 300 mm per second. It has a maximum print width of 1066 mm and resolution of 1600 x 1600 dpi with environmentally friendly, dye based inks.
Launched earlier this year and incorporating super fast Memjet printheads, the NS Multi is one of the most eagerly awaited printers to come to the corrugated print and packaging markets. Printing digitally means that each box or job can be personalised or regionalised, which is now a standard expectation in this expanding market. With the growth in online shopping and vlog reviews, the customer 'opening' experience is also valued and short run digital print makes individualised, bespoke packaging affordable.
Stewart Bell, vice president sales UK, Ireland and North America for New Solution, explained: ‘The demand for personalisation, versioning, branding and short run printed packaging is rapidly increasing and therefore the ability to print directly onto boxes is becoming more important. Packaging and box suppliers are also having to offer extra services to keep up with growing global competition and so by offering short run digitally printed packaging they can address this new market with the NS Multi. As Diecut UK is well established in this marketplace, we felt the fit was right and are delighted to welcome them on board at such an exciting time in our industry.’
Steve Waterhouse, managing director Diecut Global, said: ‘Digital printing is changing the way our industry works – and it is changing quickly. With traditional methods of print there are other processes involved which include an array of ancillary equipment – for example producing plates for litho, screens for screenprinting and stereos for flexo. With digital print, we can produce millions of colours and unlimited variations with just one machine and no extra ancillary costs.
‘By using the NS Multi to complement their existing machines, our customers can offer digital services alongside their more traditional print methods. To be appointed at this stage by New Solution for its NS Multi is a testament to our standing in the market and we are excited about showing our customers this new digital printer.’
