Agfa Customer Installs Folding Carton Solution

Agfa’s SpeedSet Orca 1060 was developed for the folding carton market. The Delta Group is first to sign for the SpeedSet Orca and start production in the UK.

The Delta Group was impressed with the speed and quality of the SpeedSet Orca single-pass inkjet press and sees it as an ideal complement to their current equipment. The fact that SpeedSet Orca is a water-based ink press that has sustainability in mind made the decision to go ahead even easier. The Delta group, one of the largest printing companies for retail, is a winner of multiple sustainability awards in the last years and has Net Zero in its sights.

‘We are excited that The Delta Group has decided to opt in as our first customer. The Delta Group will push and test the SpeedSet Orca to its maximum and will be enjoying high-quality output for their business every day,’ said Vincent Wille, President Agfa Digital Printing and Chemicals. ‘We are very proud that companies like Delta see the huge benefit of using water-based inkjet technology while achieving the highest print quality.’

‘Delta are excited to get our hands on the first SpeedSet Orca in the world in our plant. We will be pushing it to the limit and expect great things from the press,’ said Martin Shipp, COO, The Delta Group.

The single-pass inkjet press can print up to 11,000 B1 boards per hour offering amazing quality and a large colour gamut with water-based inks. Due to the flexibility of inkjet printing, the press can offer runs competitive to offset in mainstream printing volumes and provide full agility for a larger number of job changes. This allows companies to accept smaller jobs and deliver them faster than before.

‘Working with Shipp on this journey has been a fantastic experience and I am delighted we are partnering in the next exciting chapter of the SpeedSet Orca story,’ said Matt Brooks, Head of Packaging, Agfa Digital Printing Solutions.
