Breakthrough in Can Printing: Digital Printing on Aluminium Cans

By August 31, 2022November 25th, 2022No Comments

Digital printing on aluminium cans is now a possibility with the latest technology. In earlier times, the concept of digital printing on aluminium cans was an obscure reality and based solely on theories, but with recent breakthroughs in technology, it is now possible.

Digital printing has been around for a long time, but it’s only recently that the industry has embraced this method of printing on aluminium cans. In fact, digital printing is becoming so popular that many companies are now using it to print on their cans. This post will explain how digital printing works and why it makes your brand stand out from the crowd.

Digital Printing On Aluminium Cans

Digital Printing Has Arrived for Aluminium Coated Beverage Cans.

Digital printing is a new technology that has been used to print on aluminium cans. It can be used for a variety of products and it is an environmentally friendly process. In addition, digital printing allows you to save money by using less material and producing your design in fewer steps.

Digital printing uses inkjet technology which allows you to create high-resolution images without the use of many chemicals or additives (such as water) that may damage your product’s surface quality over time. This makes digital printing suitable for any type of product whether it be food packaging or something else entirely!

A Brief History of Digital Printing

Digital printing has come a long way since its inception in the early days of the computer age. As with any innovation, there were setbacks and resistance at first to digital printing. Early on, it was slow and expensive to produce graphics on paper using computers; however, today’s technology allows for faster production times and more affordable prices than ever before!

The most important factor that makes digital printing environmentally friendly is that it uses less energy than traditional methods such as offset or gravure printing (to name just two). This means that you can save money while also reducing your carbon footprint by opting for this more sustainable option instead of traditional methods like vinyl signs or stickers which rely heavily on fossil fuels during their production process.

How is Digital Printing Different from Traditional Printing Methods?

Digital printing is an efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of producing containers. With digital printing, you can print on any material that’s available in your market, including aluminium cans. This makes it ideal for companies looking for a quick way to produce their products without having to invest in expensive equipment or waste time waiting for traditional methods of manufacturing.

In addition to being more efficient than traditional methods such as lithography or gravure printing (which require expensive machinery), digital printing allows you to customize each container with graphics or text before they’re delivered off-site—no need for costly outsourcing!

This is extremely helpful when you’re driving your brand image to your consumers.

The Benefits of Digital Printing on Aluminium Cans.

Digital printing on aluminium cans is a great way to make your brand stand out. It means you can use high-quality printing methods and still achieve crisp, sharp images that will last for years.

The first benefit of digital printing on aluminium cans is that it won’t fade or smudge over time like traditional inkjet methods do—even when exposed to sunlight! This means less time spent cleaning up after an event; it also means that you don’t have to worry about smudging your logo because it won’t rub off as easily either. Since there’s no physical contact between the ink and the surface of an aluminium can (as opposed to paper), there’s even less chance of scratching or peeling off parts of the image due to wear-and-tear over time.”

Images produced with digital printing allow your branding to remain intact across all printed materials.

Digital printing allows you to maintain the integrity of your brand across all printed materials. It also helps promote brand recognition among your consumers.

Digital printing is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional methods. It goes in line with what MC Packaging is all about: sustainability and convenience.

The most common use for digital printing is on beverage containers such as water bottles, beer kegs and soda pop cans—but it can also be used in other industries such as medical companies that need labels printed on sterile surfaces where vinyl cannot be applied safely (such as inside equipment).
