Rondo-Pak Expands Digital Printing Capabilities with New Press

Equipment Investment Supports Company’s Carton Assembly & Branded Sampling Services with Precision Color Matching and Wide-ranging Substrate Compatibility

Rondo-Pak, a leading provider of quality folding cartons and regulated marketing materials to the pharmaceutical, medical device and consumer industries, has expanded its digital printing capabilities with the acquisition of an HP Indigo 5900 Digital Press. The investment helps expand Rondo-Pak’s capabilities for printing on a broad range of synthetics and extra thick substrates while ensuring precision color matching across a variety of packaging and materials applications.
“This latest equipment investment is especially valuable to Rondo-Pak’s folding carton customers,” says Bob Reilley, Rondo-Pak COO, “as it increases our ability to scale production from branded samples through steady state volumes.”  This expansion of digital capabilities supports Rondo-Pak’s carton assembly and branded sampling service, by providing a wider selection of substrates, increased paperboard thickness (up to 24pt), and additional security applications.
For a company with as diverse a product portfolio as Rondo-Pak, versatility is critical. That said, the new HP press is compatible with a host of hardy substrates, and works well with expanded material types – including synthetics like PVC, PET, Teslin and plastic cards – and can handle both dark and transparent substrates. The 5900 provides increased production speeds, and also offers expanded primer technology for various paperboards, offset stock and specialty papers.
In addition, Rondo-Pak has continued its G7® Master Qualification for the 21st consecutive quarter. The distinction is awarded by Idealliance®, a nonprofit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications, and standards worldwide. Rondo-Pak is among a select group of print providers who have successfully completed the training, examination and qualification of its print production processes, validating its capabilities to the highest level of global industry standards and specs. This qualification ensures Rondo-Pak can ensure brand consistency across the broadest range of printed marketing products and packaging solutions.
