Italian folding carton manufacturer Litocartotecnica IVAL has invested in a new seven-color Speedmaster XL 145 press from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen.
Being installed at the print shop’s new building in Mantova, near Verona, the press will be run alongside two other presses from another German manufacturer.
IVAL head of production Paolo Giacomobono said the press produces better gloss results that the company can obtain in inline primer/UV production.
"To help us gain an extra edge on the competition and offer our customers products that are finished to an elegant standard, we opted for UV specifications," Giacomobono added.
IVAL specializes in the use of low migration quality (LMQ) inks that are designed not to leach into foodstuffs.
