FP-230 Details

Stunning Digital Inkjet Printing

The FP-230 uses the L901 Plus printer to produce vibrant, full-color prints on rolls up to 230mm wide with a maximum speed of 18 m/min. Variable data and color matching are handled with ease by the optional Northstar RIP. The water-based inks have been approved for food packaging when combined with the in-line cold lamination, with your finished roll trimmed to the perfect width using the two rotary knives.

Reduce Waste, Time & Stockholding

The FP-230 enables “just in time” roll production, which removes the need to hold stock of pre-printed rolls. When compared to traditional production methods such as Flexo and Roto, it significantly reduces plastic waste by using only 3m of film for job setup. Increased sustainability is also possible with Sihl’s ARTYSIO PP films, which are independently certified as “made for recycling”.

In-house production of flexible packaging has never before been an option. But now, with the Afinia Label FP-230, it’s fast, affordable and easy.
