LPI, New Berlin, Wisconsin, a provider of custom packaging and graphic finishing solutions and part of the S. Walter Packaging Group, has announced an agreement to expand significantly its high-end digital packaging and enhancement capabilities with the purchase of multiple large-format presses that will be the first of their size in North America. LPI has partnered with Park Afek, Rosh Ha’Ayin, Israel-based Scodix to purchase the Scodix Ultra 6000 Digital Enhancement Presses, the first of which will be installed at LPI’s New Berlin location in July 2021.
The announcement comes as more companies look to distinguish their brands with distinctive packaging solutions that include custom high-end enhancements and finishes. LPI’s expanded capabilities with the new presses allow for more highly detailed, short run and data-variable personalized projects with tactile applications such as embossing, foil, metallic effects, glitter and specialty finishes. A key advantage offered by this advanced technology is a large-format press that can accommodate 29 x 41-inch sheet sizes.
Mike Draver, senior vice president and general manager for LPI, said being able to offer digital enhancement at a 41-inch sheet size creates a viable solution for customers to experiment with different graphic and variable imaging techniques to enhance their marketing and brand equity. As a Safe Quality Food-certified facility, LPI also values the increased compatibility for its food-based markets and customers.
