Swiss-based Hapa to Unwrap Prototype at Interpack 2014
Press Release | Hapa AG
MAY 07, 2014
Volketswil, Switzerland: –Innovative On Demand print specialist and performance ink developer Hapa AG will take the wraps off its new generation prototype multi-touch panel at this month’s Interpack 2014 Trade Fair in Dusseldorf.
Hapa says the panel, an example of the most modern web technology, will be embedded into all UV Flexo, DOD, Hybrid printing and laser engraver systems by 2016. The control system has a large, clear display and an ultra-intuitive and user-friendly interface.
Visitors to Hapa on Stand D31 in Hall 6 will be able to see the multi-touch screen in action on the Hapa 230 Hybrid, in its demonstration of two-colour printing on aluminium foil.
Elsewhere on the stand, Hapa’s Universal Label Printer, a UV DOD WCMYK modular printer, will flex application capabilities on aluminium foil, medical paper, Tyvek, plus other foils, including transparent materials and PSA labels.
Visitors will be able to take away a refreshing memento of Hapa’s multi-talented print capabilities – their own photo printed onto a tin of mints by the Hapa UV DOD redcube. The redcube will have more to show visitors: one exhibiting direct-print applications on BFS vials and pre-glued flat cartons, and another exhibited with a Laetus MV70 in a mark and verify solution.
The Hapa UV DOD BlisterJet will perform high-speed one-colour printing on blank aluminium-backed blister packs.
The company’s Aftermarket team will also be on-site at Interpack to talk about customer-focused services ranging from technical training to delivering custom-engraved print mats.
Hapa’s newest business will showcase the meaning of Swiss Ink Performance. Using a range of colours from its portfolio of UV DOD inks, including white, Hapa Ink will demonstrate the excellence and suitability of their products for a range of applications and materials. Hapa Ink is an experienced supplier to several OEMs, and has products printing on plastic, aluminum, glass, and labeling materials of all types.
Visitors will be able to spot plenty of Hapa systems around Interpack 2014: in Hall 16, for example, an integrated Hapa EasyFlex UV Flexo system will be printing one colour on aluminium foil as part of the FAMAR display on Stand B47. Elsewhere in Hall 16, the Bausch + Ströbel stand will be showing an integrated LabelJet DOD printer performing serialisation printing in a CMYK application.
On the QualiVision stand (IPP28) in Hall FG-South, a redcube will be delivering perfect print integrated in a track and trace solution.
