For example, printer brand, OKI, will be launching the OKI 4 and 5 colour label printers, as well as its first roll fed label printer live on the showfloor. The OKI 4 and 5 devices, which are quick and easy for short runs, require no set up costs and offer media handling flexibility, as well as ensuring less wastage. The OKI 4 and 5 will join its portfolio of printing products, including the industry’s first digital LED Five Colour A3 printer.

Dantex Group will introduce its latest innovation, the PicoJet Digital UV Inkjet Press, at the show, where the company will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Working at 350mm width and at 75m/min (250ft/min), the PicoJet incorporates 600dpi at 2.5pl dot size and is ideally placed for high quality and long run lengths. The new press will be running on stand, demonstrating its enhanced capabilities, which includes CMYK + white finish, chilled roller printing and a full variable data option.

The machine has been designed specifically to handle all the prototyping, sample making and short/medium run production needs of corrugated, and solid board converters. The X5 comes in a variety of sizes with versatile tooling to suit all common packaging substrates. Folding boxboard, corrugated, display board and even structural honeycomb boards, textiles and paper can be processed, along with many other materials.

Russel Richardson will be presenting its new reel splitter, which will allow them to process and securely destroy packaging even more efficiently. The new reel splitter will join the company’s heavy-duty primary shredder, which can process larger volumes of material such as wrappers, cores, palletised paper and other bulky waste.
