This paper gives some information about the use and benefits of electrophotographic printing on packaging substrates.

For packaging applications the converting process is even more important than the printing itself. To fulfill all this requirements it is very useful to have toners which can be UV-cured. This opens new possibilities for heat treatment, sealing and cooling. In combination with a high productivity web based digital press, this system allows new applications in the food, cosmetics and pharma packaging industry which have a huge market potential. The technology used (in line fusing and curing) will be discussed together with the toner composition problems which were encountered. Another benefit of the existing printing system is the fifth station, which opens the possibility to make use of white and/or spotcolor toner systems too.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
