Charter NEX, HP Indigo Collaboration Leads to New Pack Ready Lamination PE Sealant Films
Charter NEX Films has announced the launch of a new family of PE thermal lamination sealant films validated for use with the HP Indigo Pack Ready Laminator by Karlville. Charter NEX is the first North American supplier of PE sealant films approved for use within the Pack Ready system.
Pack Ready Lamination extends the value of HP Indigo digital print by drastically reducing turnaround time on high-quality flexible packaging, with an easy and food safe lamination solution.
