Nordmeccanica, a global market leader in coating and lamination technologies, has developed a new, solventless lamination system designed especially for on-demand, flexible packaging production.

Developed in collaboration with HP Indigo, the Super Simplex e800 is optimised for use with the HP Indigo 20000 digital press. The new Nordmeccanica laminator is already operational at ePac Flexible Packaging, which is serving as the launch customer for the technology as it rapidly expands its on-demand packaging services globally. 

The 800mm wide Nordmeccanica Super Simplex e800 is a solventless laminator, offering reduced levels of energy consumption and waste, matching the growing need for converters to deliver on-demand, flexible pouches while moving toward sustainable production. Whilst emitting no emissions and requiring no drying system improve the environmental credentials of solventless lamination, the ability, through lamination, to protect the print, and increase mechanical and chemical performance improves the value of the finished package and widens the ability of converters to grow while serving their customers. 

Nordmeccanica president Antonio Cerciello said, ‘We are very pleased for being selected by HP Indigo as a technology partner to develop the growing flexible packaging market. Our joint effort will no doubt benefit our mutual customers. This collaboration has been key in creating a first-class solution that is both environmentally friendly and highly productive.’

An end-to-end HP Indigo-Nordmeccanica system will be demonstrated on the HP stands at interpack 2020 and drupa 2020 in Dusseldorf, Germany later this year. Click here for further details about both events.

Alon Bar-Shany, general manager, HP Indigo, said, ‘This combined HP Indigo and Nordmeccanica solution broadens the HP Indigo Digital Pouch Factory solution for flexible packaging, enabling converters and brands to move toward on-demand packaging solutions.’
