Cambridge, UK – 19 June 2018. Canon has entered the digital label printing market, with the launch of its Océ LabelStream 4000 press. The roll-to-roll industrial-scale UV inkjet press provides CMYK+W printing and features the latest Xaar 2001+ U printheads.

Targeted at label and flexible packaging converters, it can print on a wide range of standard label stocks including PP and PE plus selected special substrates.

Available in a number of configurations to suit different needs in labels and flexible packaging, the Océ LabelStream 4000 will launch in two widths — at 330 mm and 410 mm.

In order to deliver an optimal and flexible solution to customers, the Océ LabelStream 4000 uses different printhead variants from the Xaar 2001+ U family. The small drop size of the Xaar 2001+ GS6U provides crisp details in CMYK, whereas the larger drop size of the Xaar 2001+ GS12U achieves high opacity with white ink. This enables the Océ LabelStream 4000 to deliver an impressive 80% opacity (‘alpine white’) at speeds of 48 meters a minute in its graphics mode, and a 67% opacity (‘true white’) in a faster production mode at 68 meters a minute.

The Océ LabelStream 4000 has been developed in collaboration with label industry specialist, and long-standing partner of Xaar, FFEI, incorporating Xaar’s 2001+ U printhead technology. Combining high resolution and proven TF Technology ink recirculation, the Xaar 2001+ U sets a new standard for print quality and reliability in single-pass digital printing.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
