The future of flexible packaging by Karlville and HP

Karlville has partnered with HP to showcase the Digital Pouch Factory, amazing Labelexpo visitors with their equipment printing, laminating, slitting and pouching, all within 45 minutes. 

The company uses the latest generation of the best-selling compact KS-SUP-400 pouch machine, utilising thermal lamination technology for high-strength bonds without cure time, as no adhesive is required. 

Karlville says the machine has the fastest set-up in the industry, with very little start-up scraps and high production speed, resulting in the best pouch machine fit for both minimum pouch quantity and long-run production orders. It is showcased for the first time, manufacturing short-run custom-shaped pouches with an innovative toolless system.

Karlville Swiss wants to redraw once again the perimeters of sustainability in the pouch production process with a cutting-edge machine in terms of low operating costs and consumption, limited footprint and low material dispersion. Therefore, it is finally capable of being a sustainable machine for sustainable pouches.

For shrink sleeves, Karlville Converting displays its latest seamer and inspection combination. 

The third generation Plus series seamer, K3 Plus, operates at 500 metres per minute and manufactures the sleeves via an automatic adjustable forming section. 

The main advantage of the technology is that is does not have forming figures, thus no friction. 

Karlville says the machine has the fastest set up in the industry with auto lay flat correction loop and recipes. 

For inspection, the company is showcasing its most advanced high-speed inspection machine equipped with E+L edge guides on both unwind and rewind, with the amount and type of oscillation easily adjustable via the MMI.
