KHS says it has developed a direct printing method for PET bottles that allows companies to cut packaging and develop a variety of designs in less time, Plastics News reports.
The digital inkjet technology replaces replace roll-fed film and paper labeling machines. The ink meets the certification requirement for plastic bottle-to-bottle recycling in Europe, KHS says.
Because KHS’ direct printing machine, called Innoprint, has an output of 36,000 PET bottles per hour, the process will replace millions of shrink sleeves and label materials, helping businesses achieve their sustainable packaging and waste reduction goals.
