Greater specificity and national differences in labeling information on healthcare products across Europe, combined with a growth in precision medicine, are changing customer expectations about how packaging is made. In response, global packaging leader Amcor (Zurich, Switzerland) is continuing to invest to meet customers’ needs across Europe.
Amcor’s latest digital printing press is now online at its Cramlington, U.K., site and is the company’s third major investment in new presses across its European operations since 2016. This new press joins two UV-Flexo presses already in operation at Amcor’s sites in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland, and Alzira, Spain, as well as other existing digital printing capabilities.
These three presses allow Amcor to manufacture packaging for healthcare-product companies large and small, offering greater flexibility and achieving lower costs, even in shorter runs, said the company. Amcor’s network of UV-Flexo, rotogravure and flexographic presses is used for pharmaceutical blister foil and sachet laminates, among other applications.
Amcor is a global developer and producer of packaging for a variety of food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical device, home and personal care and other products. The company produces a broad range of flexible packaging, rigid containers, specialty cartons, closures and services to leading companies around the world.
