Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Smurfit Kappa, Ireland, reports that it has installed a new seven-color high board line printer die cutter for its Lunata plant in Italy. Supplying major national brands, pan–European customers, and a wide range of customers worldwide, the Smurfit Kappa plant in Lunata aims to leverage its skills in print into the wider corrugated market, providing higher quality prints at a greater volume.

With this new investment, Smurfit Kappa says that it will increasingly support its customers in achieving their business objectives. Businesses will be given the opportunity to differentiate their products from competitors in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Products will be given a level of visibility never achieved in this sector, and customers will sell more with attractive and eye-catching packaging, the company notes.

The print characteristics of the new machine are top of the range with the possibility of up to seven colors and up to 60 lines per centimeter, the company says, adding that "this is the best machine of its kind currently available in Italy, and is one of a small number available in Europe."
