As a working showroom, the initiative will reinforce Karlville’s core machine competencies in lamination, coating, slitting, inspection and pouch making. ePac Miami will be equipped with Karlville Solventless and HP Indigo Pack Ready laminators, slitters and standup pouch makers. As an incubation strategy, the arrangement will enable new technologies in lamination, coating and curing to lower cost, increase performance, create a testing ground for new materials, and to broaden diversity in pouch formats.
Raul Matos, Karlville vp, says, “We’re excited about our partnership with ePac, and the ability it will provide Karlville to focus on innovation and extending our Research and Development with the HP Indigo 20000, all in a live, working environment. This is a win-win relationship for both companies: Karlville gains a global showcase and working incubator environment, while ePac continues its expansion throughout the United States with leading edge technologies.”
John Price, Karlville president, adds, “This new cooperation with ePac gives us the opportunity to refine our machinery solutions and build a stronger technical support team for digitally printed flexible packaging. We are happy to be working closely with both HP and ePac to help push digital business to the next level.”
