mass production direct-to-shape (DTS) digital decorator for the rigid
cylindrical packaging industry, is presenting high-quality containers printed

display from November 12--14 in Hall 9, Stand #9-C20, Velox's solution offers many design and efficiency benefits,
improves sustainability, and has a significantly lower impact on the

Velox achieves sustainability goals across every step of
production and the entire supply chain. The Velox IDS 250 system offers an eco-friendly decoration process with substrate versatility. When combined
with containers made from renewable materials, such as Post-Consumer Recycled
(PCR) and Sugarcane renewable material tubes, brand owners have the most innovative
green packaging solution available to them. The Velox
DTS-Inkjet technology, comprised of a dedicated system
and uniquely formulated inks, offers high-quality printing at the highest production
speed and low total cost-of-ownership on any container material or coating.


Sustainability benefits are substantial and include:

  • Reducing
    substrate and chemical waste by eliminating the need for plates, screens,
    blankets, chemicals, and spot inks;
  • Reducing
    energy consumption, storage, chemical handling units, and downtime by increasing
    the capacity and efficiency of existing production lines;
  • Enabling
    on-demand production to reduce inventory and eliminate overproduction;
  • And,
    simplifying the supply chain by reducing transportation and logistical stock
    requirements, which improves planning, shortens time-to-market, and drastically
    reduces final goods waste.


The Velox digital decoration system is a replacement for
conventional DTS printing, making possible both high-volume and low-volume runs
with superior quality at an affordable price. It offers converters full
production-line printing speed of up to 250 containers per minute with up to 14
simultaneous colors and embellishments -- including photorealistic images and
tactile embossing -- 360-degree decoration with no seam, gap, or overlap, and
tube-to-cap printing.


"Velox's digital DTS technology makes it possible to meet
business targets while reducing a products' environmental footprint," said Ofer
Nir, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Velox.
"Sustainability and environmental impact are a high priority for brand owners,
so they actively seek companies that utilize sustainable packaging solutions as
the Velox IDS 250 penetrates the market."
