A.Celli Nonwovens has recently introduced technology for turnkey printing plant systems by equipping its high speed, multifunctional lamination lines with printing capabilities. A.Celli printing technology has been developed to provide the possibility of multi-color printing to serve the nonwovens market with the highest quality of print on nonwovens. Roll goods producers can now add aesthetic benefits to their products (either nonwovens or PE/PP film or tissue) that converters are now looking for to empower their brands with designs and images for product differentiation.
In mature markets such as Europe and North America, this technology will help customers achieve differentiation, consumer appeal and vibrancy of product.
The integrated combination of unwind stands, printing machine, in-line slitting winder and/or off-line slitter-rewinder allows printing on different types of nonwovens to create sophisticated decorative materials that enhance the consumer experience. A.Celli Nonwovens is capable of offering different printing techniques which include the traditional water based and solvent based and the revolotionary UV Flexo printing.
Some of the advantages of ultraviolet compared to traditional printing technology include higher quality printing: possibility of having all different color hues only using the four base colors; utilization of smaller quantity of ink (50% less than solvent based; 40% less than water based). They are also non-hazardous to the environment and easy to maintain.
A.Celli Nonwovens will have a UV Flexo Printing Machine available for in-house testing. Potential customers now have the possibility to make dedicated printing tests with their material and their product images to see with their own eyes the benefits of this new technique.
