Toray’s Waterless Printing Products and Services to be Showcased at drupa
The keyless and waterless Varius 80 is already in full color after 100 meters—a waste saving of around 80% compared to other presses. The environmentally-friendly press uses no water, no solvent and no powder. Engineered for a maximum web width of 31.5˝ and a production speed of 1,312 fpm, the Varius 80 handles substrate thicknesses from 30 to 800µm.
“KBA considers Toray a strong partner in its waterless printing press line,” says Eric Frank, vice president of marketing and product management for KBA North America. “As we launch a new waterless printing press for the flexible packaging market, we believe that KBA and Toray will provide the necessary tools to showcase the advantages of printing waterless.”
