The water base print engine is designed for digital printing on labels, flexible film packaging and other porous or non-porous substrates.

SINGLE PASS HYBRID PRINTING

Sustainability & Superior Performance

The advantages of this low-migration inkjet engine make it the best ink option for printers of food packaging and pharmaceutical packaging. The 3800 Series WB leverages Kao’s LUNAJET proprietary nanodispersion ink technology which increases pigment concentration so the ink can spread evenly over the surface. This process also reduces the amount of ink on the material surface, which allows for exceptionally fast drying and smooth, superior printing results with vibrant colors.

In addition to being safe for food packaging, the eco-friendly LUNAJET ink releases extremely low amounts of volatile organic compounds emissions (VOCs), which significantly lowers its impact on workspaces and the environment.
