Company’s inline digital printing solution cited as innovative.
UK headquartered DataLase, an inline digital printing company, has won a gold award at the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA) annual print awards in the outstanding technical innovation category. The event was held at The Vox, Resorts World in Birmingham March 17, 2016.
DataLase received the top prize for its inline digital printing solution for secondary packaging, which was deemed a significant development in the way packaging and products are printed.
The judging panel, made up of industry representatives from a cross section of printers, suppliers, brand owners and retailers, complimented DataLase for delivering new market standards in digital print solutions that improve productivity and provide consistency and repeatability whilst offering sustainability, which can be incorporated into flexographic assets.
CEO of DataLase, Dr. Chris Wyres, said:
“We are proud of our EFIA award win and the recognition for delivering another industry changing solution. DataLase is leading the way in developing truly innovative technology for the print and packaging industry and will continue to work closely with its global strategic partner network to deliver inline digital printing solutions that will change the way brands print products and packaging and interact with consumers”.
DataLase technology uses patented laser reactive pigments that are incorporated into a coating. This is then conventionally printed on to a product or package, without the need for any additional printing equipment to be purchased by the printer converter. When exposed to a low power CO2 or NIR laser, inline at the point of manufacturing, packing or filling, a colour change reaction is generated resulting in a high definition, premium quality digital print.
The DataLase solution has been designed to enable high-speed, fast turnaround printing, which is particularly suitable for late-stage customisation and real time marketing.
DataLase has offices in the UK, Japan and USA, with exclusive distribution in Asia by SpeciaLase Ltd., based in Tokyo.
