From 2016 to 2020, digitally printed labels had a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 18%, creating a 3.31-billion-dollar opportunity. That is according to the data provided by Smithers PIRA, “The Future of Digital Print for Packaging to 2020.” Now is the perfect time for your business to go digital for label print and cut processes.

As label converters look to the future and equipment is updated, entire workflows are transitioning to digital technology. Digital tools are also being introduced to manage existing workflows as the speed and demand of jobs are increasing. True Digital could be your best ally to a seamless print and cut inline production process.

 What is True Digital?

true digital label printingIn the past, the various label print and cut process required several separate steps and different pieces of equipment. True digital is a newer printing method that leverages the advantages of digital printing along with the proven capabilities of laser finishing. It combines laser converting and digital printing into one single solution.

True digital offers a profitable solution for label print and cut converters by maximizing the lasting success of flexographic capabilities, equipping printers to stay current with market trends to meet the needs of customers.

Why Choose True Digital To Meet Your Label Print and Cut Needs?

anyjet inline color label pressOur print and cut inline equipment is 100% digital, but we aren’t the only ones. There are others that are also 100% digital. Most of the inline equipment available on the market is connected, so the digital printer and knife die cutters appear inline. Many of those options are some combination of digital printers and analog rotary die cutters.

The problem is that if it’s not 100% digital inline, then offline knife die cutter equipment will need replacement when the blade gets dull. Between this cost and the cost of new flexible dies, the additional cost of consumables will add up. In addition, if the design or paper is changed, you can’t use the old die and must order a new one.

However, you can print and cut inline on a single roll installation because any-JET II is a 100% digital inline system with a combination of digital printers and digital laser cutters. Its lasers are the greatest advantage because you don’t need die-making for cutting.

The obvious benefit to laser die-cutting is that it eliminates the need for solid or flexible dies, which includes ordering, manufacturing and shipping time, storage, wear, and sharpening. Preparation time and waste are minimal. The operating software is constantly improving, and now can incorporate job data of all kinds and enable auto job changeover—switching from one die-cutting pattern to another without hesitation so you no longer need to stop the machine to change dies between jobs.

Lasers cut with pinpoint accuracy and minimal waste. The creative possibilities are endless. They can handle:

  • intricate shapes
