Pioneering printing technology is now available for corrugated packaging companies to take advantage of the growing demand from the beverage industry for special-edition packaging to celebrate major events.

SUN Automation’s range of new digital printers – CorrStream® 66, 40 and 20 – provide the corrugated packaging industry with unrivalled output, reduced operating costs, improved efficiency and outstanding print quality.

The CorrStream range offers the print on demand of high quality, colourful shelf-ready packaging (SRP) in smaller batch runs to specific print or order quantity – with no minimum requirement – for seasonal, regional or event-based promotions.

CorrStream’s CMYK digital printers allow graphics to press in hours instead of days, small or large production runs at speeds of up to 70m/min (4200 1m2 sheets per hour), plus graphic changes, data merge capabilities and mass customisation.

SUN Automation’s Global Product Manager for CorrStream, Sean Moloney, said “This equipment brings corrugated in line with other event-specific packaging formats for the drinks industry – if the whisky label can be customised so can the outer box. This is a new opportunity for corrugated to be supplied on demand for any event (same box, different prints).
