Mondi extends its Color Copy original range with launch of ELDFs to meet the growing demand for digitally printed applications and offer more choice in the print market.
Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, extends its Color Copy original flagship range with extra-long digital formats (with lengths up to 1200 mm) to meet the growing demand for digitally printed applications. The extended range allows for a host of new print applications. The papers offer the highest possible quality in digital colour printing and provide customers with the choice between different long-sheet applications (personalised for each customer), both in large scale or single items.
Color Copy original ELDFs are compatible with all major printing machine manufacturers e.g. Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Xerox, Canon, and others. The range is both FSC® and EU Ecolabel certified as well as part of the Green Range, Mondi’s umbrella trademark for sustainable paper solutions, and has a ColorLok® certification for excellent colour reproduction and faster drying in inkjet printing.
“It is always our goal to produce high quality products that meet evolving needs and are sustainable by design. Color Copy original ELDFs are the perfect addition to our longstanding product range as we keep pushing the barrier in innovation.” says Johannes Klumpp, Marketing & Sales Director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.
“The new Color Copy original ELDFs bridge a longstanding gap in the market and work very well on our AccurioPress colour production printers. They offer perfect runnability for our machines that have many advanced capabilities, including auto-duplex banners up to 900 mm, as well as inline finishing options to create ready-to-ship full bleed banners. The double-sided printing with precise front and back registration also made for a compelling choice," says Anja Schappert, Marketing Manager Print Substrates, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.
New technical developments increases demand for ELDFs
The new formats are designed for quality printing needs in the marketing sector, e. g. high quality brochures and posters in standout format which are particularly attractive for lifestyle and premium brands.
The Color Copy original ELDFs product range is a response to the latest technical developments in digital printing machines. While digital toner production presses were not able to work with long formats, new presses now have the ability to print on extended sheet sizes. By including ELDFs into their portfolio Mondi intends to support OEMs and printers to feature these new functionalities and offer a wider product range especially for high quality marketing collaterals. The supplies can be mill cut and packaged in individually wrapped reams to meet short deadlines.
The process is also more cost-effective for shorter runs as ELDFs maximize productivity through multi-up imposition of smaller jobs like business cards, invitations, direct mailers, and even smaller folding cartons. This can improve productivity by 25 percent.
Color Copy original ELDFs are available in 120, 160, 250 and 300 g/m² and 660x330/889x330/1200x330mm short grain across all Europe.
