Sun Automation Has Digital Press for Corrugated

SPARKS, MD | Sun Automation offers a series of three production-speed digital printers for corrugated. The CorrStream 66, 40, and 20 are said to offer corrugated boxmakers and the converting sector unrivalled speed, reduced costs, efficiency, and outstanding print quality, as well as bringing inkjet sophistication to mainstream applications as an alternative to conventional analog methods. 

Company says the CorrStream single-pass digital printers provide box converters new levels of flexibility in print and as well as the key ability to ease the pressure on box makers’ operating costs at the lowest batch levels, compared to flexographic printing. CorrStream allows for increased value added through print on demand as well as the opportunity for converters to reduce or remove traditional costs such as origination and platemaking.

In addition, further opportunities exist for corrugated producers to align with increasing digitalization in other packaging media to provide solutions for brand owner/retailer seasonal or event-based on-shelf promotions that require, for example, short-run or variable-print capabilities.

Features are said to include the following:

  • Print widths of 100–1,345 mm and 3,000 mm
  • Traditional analog sizes with digital benefits
  • Speeds to 10,000 sheets/hr
  • Simple to operate and reduced maintenance costs
  • Service packages available, including software
  • A range of machines sizes and modular design

CorrStream's CMYK color digital printers for corrugated reportedly allows graphics to press in hours instead of days, small or large production runs at speeds to 8,000 sheets/hr, personalization and graphic changes, data merge capabilities, wide formats, and mass customization.
