Food safe ink

Dedicated cereal eaters, cake makers, food manufacturers and switched on print buyers might also be interested to know that the (Simitri) inks used on our new Konica Minolta Biz Hub 1100 digital press are 100% food safe. Find out more about printing with food safe inks. These greener digital inks are manufactured by polymerisation rather than the conventional kneading or pulverizing method, which achieves:

  • Reduction in Greenhouse Gas emission of 32% for carbon dioxide and 40% for nitrogen oxide.
  • A reduction in sulphur dioxide emission reduction, a cause of “acid rain”, by 42%

Furthermore, Simitri inks requires less toner to be applied to the paper and oil free fusing is achieved at lower temperatures. This significantly reduces the power consumption of the digital press whilst delivering exceptional print quality.
