AstroNova has introduced the TrojanLabel T2-L, a narrow web digital flexible packaging press. Customers will have the opportunity to see and test the new T2-L at Pack Expo Las Vegas and Labelexpo Europe 2019.
Designed to accommodate both short run and high volume digital printing, the T2-L is the ideal flexible package printing solution for brand owners, manufacturers, and commercial printers to efficiently scale and grow their businesses. Using Natura inks, which are formulated with nearly 70% water, the T2-L delivers superior print quality onto flexible packaging using inks that are safer for food labels, creating significant savings for customers over the lifetime of the printer.
To support the rapidly growing digital print for packaging business, AstroNova has partnered with Sihl for digital print substrates. In addition to offering Sihl’s environmentally friendly Artysio brand packaging product portfolio for the T2-L, AstroNova is partnering with Sihl to develop a range of new flexible packaging materials.
‘Its high quality, recyclable, flexible packaging materials make Sihl a perfect partner for AstroNova in providing a total solution that is environmentally friendly, food friendly and sustainable,’ said AstroNova president and CEO Greg Woods. ‘We are proud to partner with Sihl on this initiative, offering our customers what we believe will be the flexible packaging solution with the highest return on investment in the industry.’
‘Our T2-L plays directly into strong secular trends driving the growth of the flexible packaging industry, including increased urbanisation, a greater consumer focus on sustainability and the growth of e-commerce,’ Greg added.
‘Our technology helps to create lightweight, durable packaging that reduces waste, lowers transportation costs, and is safer for the environment.’
