US-based print and marketing solutions company SunDance announced the production of stand-up pouches after the acquisition of Hudson-Sharp Ares 400-SUP machine.
The Ares 400-SUP machine creates flexible pouches with low scrap rates, resulting in less waste.
It also has a small, efficient, and user-friendly design for quick changeovers in short and medium-run manufacturing.
SunDance’s curated equipment, such as the Ares-SUP, aligns with its sustainability and quality standards as Florida’s first certified Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) offset printer.
According to the firm, the machine can generate diverse structures with sharp images and brilliant colours, as well as recycle-ready PE, laminated films, paper, and bio-films.
SunDance president JohnHenry Ruggieri said: “The Ares 400-SUP is a great addition to our company’s growing pouch production.
“With the machine, small but growing brands will be able to take advantage of stand-up pouches to better market their product.”
Earlier this year, SunDance introduced child-resistant pouches to suit customers who need a higher level of product safety without sacrificing package beauty.
The Orlando-based commercial printer is increasing manufacturing to include stand-up pouches once again, giving firms of all sizes greater packaging flexibility.
