DIGILINE Blister for print efficiency and cost economy

In the blister lid foil printing segment the number and duration of changeovers are becoming ever more critical cost factors – especially against the backdrop of continuously shrinking production runs. At this year's Interpack (Hall 16 / A47) Atlantic Zeiser is addressing this issue by showcasing a cost-effective solution. DIGILINE Blister executes variable print orders reliably and to a high quality standard – without long setup times and production standstills.

Its performance profile is based on a high-quality, low-maintenance digital printing system with high-performance UV-curable inks. To start a new print job on the DIGILINE Blister, the operator simply selects a recipe and thus loads a new PDF. The changeover is accomplished within just two minutes. With a conventional flexo printing system, by comparison, it takes a good hour on average and causes several thousand euros of downtime costs. The new system's regular running costs are lower as well. The UV-A lamps for the DIGILINE Blister's DoD inkjet printing system are based on LED technology and last more than ten times longer than the UV-C curing lamps used in flexography – and significantly reduce energy costs overall. And thanks to their contactless inkjets, the service life of the print heads is practically unlimited. In addition, the cost of sourcing flexo print mats and the associated input for their installation and removal are eliminated.

Users are not required to accept any compromises as regards print quality. DoD UV inkjet digital printing delivers a high-quality, durable and resilient image on a highly diverse range of surfaces. The secret lies in regulating the quantity of dispensed ink according to the material that is being printed. DIGILINE Blister is capable of faithfully reproducing even Asian scripts thanks to a native PDF resolution of 600 x 600 dpi and an original PDF RIP process.

DIGILINE Blister is a genuine all-in-one system. Images and codes are easily uploaded to the system without any additional software or an external computer, which greatly simplifies both integration and operation. DIGILINE Blister is also compatible with Atlantic Zeiser's serialization software MEDTRACKER, which can also be used as a data management platform. DIGILINE Blister is not only available as an offline system, but can also be implemented as an inline or nearline solution.
