Toray Plastics (America) Inc. has been selected to join the HP Indigo Pack Ready community of film providers.

HP Indigo Pack Ready is a set of post-print solutions for HP Indigo digital presses that enables digital converters and printers to print, laminate and pack on demand for immediate time-to-market.

Toray Plastics is the first U.S. film manufacturer to participate in the program as a single-source provider able to offer North American converters and printers the highest quality OPP, PET, extrusion-coated OPP and PET, metalized, barrier and sealant print-web film technologies that meet the demands of the flexible packaging and labeling markets, officials say.

“We were honored when HP approached us in 2013 about our films, and it was very rewarding to see the program presented at Drupa 2016. Toray is very excited to participate and help develop the digital flexible packaging films for this market,” says William Nelson, sales director of the industrial strategic alliance group at Toray Plastics (America). “Leading consumer product goods companies and converters have relied on our film innovations to commercialize their projects effectively and efficiently for more than 30 years. Toray has been conducting research and development in the digital packaging arena since 2013, collaborating with customers who want to expand their packaging and label printing capabilities, including those who are interested in unique, custom-printed packaging, customer engagement programs, and just-in-time and short-run projects. The market potential is excellent, and our burgeoning relationship with HP is a perfect strategic fit.”
