With the increasing acceptance of digital printing in the various application areas of packaging printing, the range of requirements for digital ink systems has expanded. The migration behaviour of ink systems is moving into the focus of the decision-making process of labels- and packaging printers and plays a decisive role in the selection of a digital printing press. The properties of the ink system determine to a large extent which application segments the printing system can cover – and to which segments it could be expanded to if necessary.
