Karlville and HP present Pack Ready Lamination technology


The process allows label converters to quickly and easily enter into flexible packaging.

Pack Ready Lamination is a novel technology developed by HP Indigo, designed specifically to work with HP Indigo digital presses to deliver immediate time to market and significantly reduce the complexity and investment involved with entering flexible packaging converting.

The Pack Ready lamination process allows label converters to quickly and easily enter into flexible packaging with lower risk along with a pre-established supply chain of materials. The new market approach allows HP Indigo press users to thermally laminate Indigo printed film with Pack Ready film and instantly achieving high bond strength with HP Indigo ElectroInk.

The new approach will allow digital converters to eliminate cure time for instant converting and shipping. Overall cost and complexity barriers are lowered with this new concept. “The Pack Ready Lamination Solution will enable HP Indigo customers to run small jobs with minimal waste and complexity versus traditional lamination systems” says John Price, President of Karlville.

Karlville announced earlier this year commercial availability of the HP Indigo Pack Ready Laminator for HP Indigo digital presses. Karlville is licensed as a manufacturer and supplier of the HP Indigo Pack Ready laminator technology.
