With 50 systems already installed overt the last two years the Hanglory digital corrugated print systems – supplied here by Kissel + Wolf – are clearly hitting a nerve in the inkjet corrugated sector. Print21 editor Wayne Robinson reports.
Hanglory is a name that is new to the ANZ print packaging community, but the Chinese engineering
outfit is cutting a swathe though its domestic market, and in Europe and the Far East. In less than two years the company has installed more than 50 of its four and six-colour digital inkjet corrugated print systems, with approximately half of them in its home market, and half overseas.
The Hanglory corrugated system comes in two versions, the 1604 or the 2504, reflecting the different print sizes, and with a choice of CMYK or CMYK plus two spot colour channels.
Output on the 2504 can only be described as high, with the capability to print 17,773sqm of board each hour, with a maximum print width of 2160mm on boards of up to 2000x2500mm, and in thicknesses between 1-15mm. With end-to-end workflow integration the Glory 2504 incorporates a primer, the printing unit, a varnish unit, the dryer, a slotter and a handle-hole die-cutter.
