Toray Plastics Selected for Hp Indigo Pack Ready Program

US based manufacturer of polypropylene, polyester, metallized, and bio-based films Toray Plastics has been selected to join the HP Indigo Pack Ready community of film providers.

HP Indigo Pack Ready is a set of post-print solutions for HP Indigo digital presses. It allows digital converters and printers to print, laminate, and pack for immediate time-to-market.

Toray will offer the Lumirror PA66 PET film and Torayfan FMS and F62W OPP films to the HP Indigo Pack Ready digital ecosystem.

Toray Plastics (America) industrial strategic alliance group sales director William Nelson said: “Toray is very excited to participate and help develop the digital flexible packaging films for this market.

“Toray has been conducting research and development in the digital packaging arena since 2013, collaborating with customers who want to expand their packaging and label printing capabilities, including those who are interested in unique, custom-printed packaging, customer engagement programs, and just-in-time and short-run projects.

“The market potential is excellent and our burgeoning relationship with HP is a perfect strategic fit.”

Toray said it would make certain enhancements to the films to meet customers’ needs in the flexible packaging and label markets.

The films’ applications include food and snack food packaging, packaging for specialty items including coffee, artisanal and regional foods, and nutraceuticals, as well as labels for consumer items, durable goods, and beverages, among others.

As a single-source provider, Toray is said to be the first US manufacturer of extrusion-coated OPP, PET, metallized, barrier, and sealant print-web film technologies to join the program.
