April 22, 2024

Balerna, Switzerland and Miami, Florida — April 22th, 2024

Karlville SwissTM, Karlville, and JetFX will showcase the groundbreaking Digital Pouch Factory at the upcoming DRUPA 2024 exhibition inside the HP Indigo booth in hall 17. The collaborative effort promises to redefine flexible packaging production by seamlessly integrating cutting-edge technology, sustainability, and unmatched efficiency, bringing innovation and enhanced performance.

HP Indigo, the global leader and innovator for digital print technology, combines strategic machine partners to showcase flexible packaging end-to-end solutions first-hand. Each company, an integral part of the digital pouch factory, brings its machine solutions to DRUPA for a total of 4 machine modules.

To start, post-print, Karlville will showcase two machines for flexible packaging conversion, a COMBI Pack Ready Laminator, which combines solvent-free Adhesive and Thermal Lamination technologies and a Classic Duplex Slitter integrated with a JetFX SOLO-FlexPack module for digital embellishment printing, will prepare the material for the pouch. Karlville SwissTM will showcase their new pouch machine model KS-SUP-400-H, suitable for manufacturing flat and stand-up pouches with and without zippers to convert standard materials, mono-material and paper-based structures.

The HP Indigo Digital Pouch Factory, developed in collaboration with Karlville SwissTM, Karlville, and JetFX, represents a paradigm shift in the packaging industry. Here’s what makes it exceptional:

1. Optimized One-Day Pouch Production: The factory leverages the power of HP Indigo digital presses, along with end-to-end automation. It streamlines the entire pouch production process, enabling converters to deliver stand-up and three-side-seal pouches in less than 1 hour, all achieve in a single shift. Converters can now profitably handle short-run jobs with ease.

2. Sustainability: By reducing waste, minimizing setup time, and requiring fewer personnel, the Digital Pouch Factory contributes to a more sustainable and economically attractive solution.

3. Innovation: Not only will we deliver pouch production in record time, but a beautiful, embellished pouch, by JetFx technology, integrated to Karlville Classic Duplex Slitter, to delight consumers. Witness the future of flexible packaging firsthand! Visit the HP Indigo Digital Pouch Factor at DRUPA 2024, Hall 17/ A01-2 and discover how collaboration transforms pouch production.
