CGS expands its ORIS Solvent Media portfolio

Three new Pouch Films are available to address the latest Mockup Trends

CGS PouchFilmsHainburg, Germany (February 01, 2019) – Packaging prototypes are increasingly in demand to help developing design ideas and support the decision-making process. As a result, there are higher expectations regarding mockups, which are becoming more and more complex.

This trend has been noticeable for some time in the US and UK, but is now extending to other European markets – especially among top brand owners. To perfectly meet the increasing demands on packaging samples and to even reproduce complex finishings quickly and cost-effectively, CGS has expanded its extensive media portfolio with three new types of materials.

In addition to the metalized pouch film, used, for example, for the production of snack food packaging, there are also white and transparent pouch films available (see table). All three materials can be directly printed, exhibit a large color gamut and are heat-sealable. The removable carrier foil makes it easy to handle in the printer.

ORIS Media White PE Pouch Film 85 75 30 24 and 48´´
With these new inkjet films, most flexible packaging samples can be produced directly without the need for a transfer film. This is especially advantageous for large, thin foil packaging samples, where the previous approach often led to wrinkles. The new materials now provide additional generic substrates optimized for flexible packaging.
The entire ORIS Solvent Media portfolio has been specifically developed to meet the particular challenges of proof and prototype production for packaging, ranging from a various selection of transparent, aluminum and shrink foils to cardboard and the highly flexible ORIS Media Transfer Foil for printing on original substrates.

All are characterized by a high ink limit and a fast drying time. In addition, the latest coating technology combined with an extensive quality control, guarantees consistent results and maximum quality. Common ink-jet materials developed for large format applications are mostly inadequate for the demands of the packaging market and typically exhibit low scratch resistance, color casts and batch-to-batch variations.

In addition to high-quality media for all types of packaging proofs and samples, CGS also produces the award-winning ORIS Flex Pack // Web system: "In ORIS Flex Pack, all components – that means specially developed software, hardware, expanded gamut inks and the custom media portfolio – perfectly match each other. Therefore, it’s not surprising, that ORIS Flex Pack has become the defacto standard worldwide at leading brand companies, prepress houses and packaging printers. Proofs and prototypes of the most complex packaging and labels are being produced in perfect quality off the printing press", comments Heiner Müller, CGS Key Account Director Europe.
