Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), together with one of China’s leading packaging manufacturers, Xianjunlong Colour Printing Co. Ltd, based in Shenzhen, is launching the world’s first web-to-pack platform -boxuni- and digital production solution for designing and ordering customized folding cartons.
The platform connects packaging designers, print buyers, and producers with unparalleled efficiencies and leverages unrivaled software and technical capability from Heidelberg with Xianjunlong’s strong footprint in the Chinese packaging industry. As the first boxuni production partner, Xianjunlong has implemented a fully integrated web-to-pack production line – from cloud-based online platform to printing on a Heidelberg Primefire 106 and postpress operations. Heidelberg is showcasing this online platform at its booth at the Print China trade show, which is taking place from April 9 to 13 in Guangdong.
boxuni: Printers, designers, and end customers benefit in equal measure from new web-to-pack platform
Heidelberg contributes its software know-how surrounding Prinect and its extensive experience in the printing of high-quality folding cartons.

Designers currently have online access to around 12,000 folding carton designs, with more being added all the time.
This makes designing packaging that is tailored to their requirements a quick, simple, and cost-effective process. As for packaging buyers, they can order packaging designs online – customized if necessary and also in the shortest of runs – which Xianjunlong then produces fully automatically and ships.
A Primefire 106 from Heidelberg – China’s first industrial digital printing system in B1 format – starts by printing the packaging that has been designed and ordered online. Once the folding cartons have been printed, postpress operations are carried out on a digital coating/foil stamping system and a die-cutting machine from Heidelberg partner Masterwork Group Co., Ltd. Xianjunlong thus offers a complete production chain for digital packaging printing…
