Memjet Announces Its First Flexible Packaging Solution
Press release from the issuing company



The Rigoli MVZ Brings New Possibilities to the Production of On-Demand Packaging
San Diego, Calif. – Memjet (Memjet.com), a leading developer of inkjet printing technology, announced today that its OEM partner, Rigoli s.r.l., has launched the Rigoli MVZ: the first roll-to-roll, wide format, inkjet printer powered by Memjet and designed for flexible packaging applications. This new, low-cost solution enables users to produce the colorful, low- to middle-run lengths of customized flexible packaging that are in demand in today’s market. Rigoli will be demonstrating the printer and showcasing customized packaging at the upcoming IPACK-IMA 2018, which will take place between May 29 and June 1, 2018, in Milan, Italy. The MVZ is a unique solution that provides the ultimate flexibility. With its small footprint, this package-printing solution can easily be placed in-line with finishing equipment. Because it utilizes Memjet printing technology, the printer is available at a low cost of entry. This means that users are able to realize a faster return on their investment based on increased productivity, lower inventory and reduced scrap costs. This combination of functionality and quality makes the MVZ unlike any other solution on the market. “As brands bring an ever-increasing number of SKUs to market, packaging production has struggled to keep pace,” says Kevin Shimamoto, chief marketing officer at Memjet. “All too often, package printing solutions lack the quality, flexibility and affordability needed to make on-demand, short-run and late-stage customized packaging a reality. The Rigoli MVZ product family marks a dramatic shift in that paradigm, making it faster, easier and cost-effective for companies of all sizes to make flexible packaging part of their operation.” ...(Read More)
