What Gives A Rate of Over “200m/min” to Digital Ink-Jet Printing?

[Lead] With the development of packaging market, environmental protection, individualization and less cost are becoming a major trend, which boosts the development of the emerging digital printing & packaging technology. Among the massive excellent enterprises in digital printing, a unique one stands out – Handway Industrial Digital Equipment Co., Ltd. (“Handway”).

Subversion of traditional printing with leading development of Single-Pass technology

Handway is affiliated to Hanglory Group, a high-tech company founded in 2010 and specialized in the development, manufacturing and sales of digital ink-jet equipment. With the ongoing efforts of talents in the past six years, Hanglory Group has become a pacemaker among world-leading printing solution providers and in the domestic digital ink-jet printing market with market share of products ranking the top in Europe and America.

With the support of Hanglory Group, Handway took the first step in launching the advance research of Single-Pass printing technology in 2013. Single-Pass is a highly advanced digital ink-jet printing technology of the industry. What is Single-Pass? In brief, the printing stock keeps rapid moving while sprayer remains stationary for printing. Since the sprayer can only print the stock once in the direction of motion, hence the name of Single-Pass or One-Pass. The technology can help significantly improve the printing speed of ink jet to 100m/min even 200m/min. With the technology, digital spray will never be restricted to proofing or small-lot production, thus likely subverting traditional printing.


Overall mastery of industrial Single-Pass and successful application to the printing of corrugated cartons

In fact, unlike printing patterns with Single-Pass, it is very difficult to apply Single-Pass to industrial productions, since it requires high speed, stability and intelligence for the equipment, which lays a high technical threshold for sprayer, ink, control system, software, machinery platform and big data processing algorithm. Upon years of researches and practices, Handway has completely mastered industrial Single-Pass technology and successfully developed an industry-leading digital printer Handway HC1600, which records a rate of 150m/min at the production line. Meanwhile, Handway HC1600 gives a better-than-expected performance in actual production, which fully proves that Single-Pass can be totally applied to the printing of corrugated cartons. Thanks to the technology, Handway HC1600 makes breakthroughs in the restrictions like speed, width and cost of digital printing of paper packages, which brings about a revolution to the packaging industry. In addition to carton printing, Handway will apply the Single-Pass to the other sectors like inner packing printing and label printing in the future.


Handway also earned a wide market recognition for its breakthroughs in technologies. Handway HC1600, at the initial launch in 2016, got favored by Fushan Paper and WenSong Printing, both of which concluded strategic cooperation agreement with Handway. At the end of 2016, one HC1600 was also delivered to Europe for the need of client. It is known that, in 2016, Hanglory Group registered a total sales volume of RMB500 million from all the digital ink-jet printing products.

Innovative technologies derived from independent development and outstanding talents

It is the unremitting efforts and pursuit of Handway’s talents that created the great Single-Pass. In digital ink jet printing sector of China, a majority of players need the support from third parties to develop some simple and non-industrial digital ink-jet printers due to the incompetence of research and development. However, Handway had a place among the rare ones with proprietary intellectual property rights of digital ink-jet printing.

Since the incorporation, some domestic experts specialized in digital printing joined Handway and held large shares. Handway had a foresight on the rising and highly technological industry that massive talents will be needed. Therefore, Handway keeps the employee stock ownership mechanism, which helps increase the number of talents of research & development to more than 100.

Since domestic market of packaging and printing machinery is now under technology transformation, the advantages of digital printing fails to be fully exerted due to the technical restrictions. Upon years of efforts in digital printing, Handway made massive remarkable technical achievements. In 2017, Handway will start strategic cooperation with various corrugated carton printing houses to give full play to its strengths in digital package printing and help clients solve the problems concerning small-lot production, verified orders and long-period plate making. In the future, Handway will maintain the strategy of global development based on China and focus on the Mainland China, Europe, America, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Japan and other markets. With reference to the demands of domestic and overseas packaging markets, Handway estimates a demand of 20-40 high-end digital printing devices at home and abroad in 2017.

Handway is anticipated to join SinoCorrugated 2017 held by Reed Exhibitions in Shanghai New International Expo Center on April 11-14, 2017 to release Handway HC1600, the industrial digital printer of corrugated cartons initially developed by Handway. The equipment has an excellent printing effect with some patterns to be comparable with offset printing, and achieves a speed of 150m/min, in parallel with traditional printing technology. The equipment is believed to give a new cognition to the sector of corrugated carton printing. N4 Pavilion C70 (775m2) is expecting your visit!
