The corrugated packaging firm based in Ireland, Smurfit Kappa, is to install a new industrial-scale HP PageWide C500 digital press in its Interwell plant in Austria.

The digital press aims to provide greater customisation and flexibility for Smurfit Kappa customers.

The press will be the first commercial HP single pass press in Europe, and HP’s most advanced corrugation press yet.

The technology will feature a fully integrated stack-to-stack workflow which is anticipated to drive sales both traditional and online sales.

The HP ink used in the press can be used on primary and secondary food packaging without additional barriers, complying with most global food safety regulations.
