The DigitalPRINT is a module compatible with BCS’s Boxer machine that expands the capacity of the Boxer to create not just custom boxes, but printed boxes. With the standard box making machine, you can create fully customisable boxes in terms of size and style, but this additional module make the potential for customisation complete. You can create a box with a full design, including packaging instructions and even images.
In line printing
The DigitalPRINT is not a seperate machine to the Boxer, but is an additional module added onto the machine. This means that the box isn’t cut and produced by one machine, and then needs to be transferred to a separate process system for printing. Instead, one machine cuts the box, prints on it and produces a complete box ready to be folded and loaded with your product.
The in line capabilities of this module truly make it stand out from the crowd. You reduce manual labour, time and increase efficiency. The DigitalPRINT saves you money.
The printing module operates on a simple graphic interface, optimised for the easiest usability and to create clear and crisp images. It functions on an ink jet digital printer with a high resolution 180 dpi. Printed boxes were previously always created using a printing plate. Digital printing speeds up the whole process and allows the quick reconfiguration to different designs. Printing is now easier than ever.
Another feature of the DigitalPRINT module that previously hasn’t been available with printing plate technology is the dual colour capabilities. Functioning on a two colour ink jet system, you can create more complex designs, including interesting and dynamic logos and other images.
Flexible and Complete Designs
The module operates with two 140mm auto-positioning print heads, bringing maximum printing possibilities. The two print heads alter their position in the machine to print both along and across the box. This gives full flexibility over your printing options, allowing you to print on any area of the cardboard and in any sized design.
Custom Printed Boxes
The combination of the DigitalPRINT module with the Boxer machine means that you can create printed boxes in as little quantities as you like. You can even make one individual box. The advantage of the DigitalPRINT module over its FlexoPRINT counterpart (compatible with other BCS machines) is that the digital method of printing means that switching design, logo or text is incredibly simple. Rather than having to reconfigure printing plates, the computer does the work for you.
Boxes couldn’t be more customised than with the DigitalPRINT. Create one printed box in one shape and with one design, and then create a whole different box that meets the requirements of a new product or bespoke order. You have complete control over every part of your packaging and box manufacturing process.
