Arrow Systems Inc., a digital finishing and printing equipment provider, announces a partnership with Sihl Group to pair the Arrowjet Aqua 330R with the Sihl ARTYSIO line of flexible packaging materials.
According to Arrow, the partnership allows customers to digitally print and pack flexible packaging inline in a single production step, up to 12.75″ wide with water-based, pigment inkjet.
“We feel that the flexible packaging space is one that has enormous growth potential,” says Shaan Patel of Arrow Systems Inc. “We understand that the majority of customers in this space are currently outsourcing their flexible packaging needs because, in the past, it has been too costly or difficult to produce them in-house. We believe that the combination of the Sihl materials with our pigment inkjet press will allow more customers to begin producing their own short-run flexible packaging.”
“Partnering with Arrow has been great,” adds Ronny Kunze, business development of Sihl Group. “Their team understands the benefits of on-demand printing and has been quick to adapt with any changes that we have thrown at them. We are looking forward to bringing our combined product to market worldwide over the next few months.”
