Peachtree Packaging & Display is thrilled to announce the addition of a Barberan Jetmaster to its printing infrastructure. As a plateless printer, the Series 1750 2.0 digital printer expands Peachtree's capacity for short-run and custom jobs that achieve litho-like print quality in record time. Coupled with Peachtree's Gopfert Evolution and other equipment, the addition offers customers unparalleled digital printing quality and efficiency for their projects.
The Spanish manufacturer of the Barberan Jetmaster Series 1750 calls the technology "A New Era" in digital printing due to its single-pass printing capabilities. The printer is entirely digital and plateless. The elimination of plates in the process significantly reduces the cost of small or mid-volume jobs and shortens the time to complete projects.
The new printer allows for a new level of customization. Art changes are controlled digitally and can be changed at any time. In addition, the printer has two streams where multiple project versions can be produced in-line on the same structure with no changeover and a max sheet size of 63.5 inches by 118 inches. Also, Peachtree's Barberan is currently the world's only printer with an in-line, post-print coating attachment.
The color gamut of the Barberan Jetmaster is unparalleled in its range and quality. Projects have litho-like print quality due to advanced Pantone color matching and an extended color gamut. The Barberan prints images at an exceptional 600 DPI image resolution. The use of UV inks with LED curing ensures the correct size of each droplet, eliminating dot expansion and color mixing. Products also receive UV LED curing with gloss or satin finish flexibility. The system further ensures image integrity while reducing production time and energy consumption.
"Industry leaders must have industry-leading technology. We chose Barberan for a reason. Our mission as a company is to provide world-class packaging and print solutions. Our brand identity is built on protecting the integrity of other company brands," said Chad Wagner, president and CEO of Peachtree Packaging.
The Barberan Jetmaster meets the highest standards for green manufacturing, producing less than two percent waste.
The addition of the Barberan Jetmaster to Peachtree Packaging & Display's infrastructure furthers its goals of housing the best technology and solutions for its packaging and display customers. In 2018, Peachtree added a Gopfert 5-Color Dual-Die Cutting Press to its production line. The Gopfert is considered a best-in-class flexographic printer, allowing Peachtree to produce 10,000 full-size sheets per hour and more than 150 million square feet per year.

Fictiv, the operating system for custom manufacturing, today announced its partnership with Heliospace, harnessing the power of digital manufacturing to dramatically accelerate new product development for ground breaking space technology.
Heliospace is an agile aerospace company that produces flight hardware, systems engineering, and mission formulation services to NASA, nonprofits, and commercial customers for space missions. After years of working together, Fictiv has produced flight hardware for a variety of Heliospace projects, with incredibly rigorous quality standards, including CubeSat antenna components as a part of NASA's SunRISE orbital mission and parts that will end up around one of Jupiter's moons on NASA's Europa Clipper mission.
"The positive impact Fictiv has had on our product development process has been very significant," said Greg Delory, CEO of Heliospace. "Our custom manufacturing partnership with Fictiv helps us from initial design, through to test cycles and gives us a lot more confidence that we can answer customers' needs quickly and win our bids."
Prior to Fictiv, Heliospace was accustomed to 18 week lead times for their intricate machined parts, which put projects at risk and impeded the growth of the business. After switching to Fictiv, they were immediately able to slash lead times down to just 2 weeks — 9 times faster. Now, Fictiv is a crucial partner in Heliospace's new product development process.
"Fictiv exists to enable product innovators to create," said Dave Evans, CEO of Fictiv. "The work that Heliospace is doing is important and we're proud to have helped to accelerate their results. We're committed to advancing the aerospace industry through simplified and accelerated custom manufacturing solutions and we look forward to continuing to help Heliospace and other industry leaders push the boundaries of what is possible in space exploration."

IperionX, a leader in sustainable titanium technologies, and SLM Solutions, prominent in metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems, have announced signing a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) on March 14, 2023, to look into the possibility of IperionX supplying SLM with spherical titanium metal powders from its upcoming Titanium Demonstration Facility (TDF) in Virginia.
With more than 850 systems and 1,400 lasers installed worldwide, SLM Solutions is a top provider of metal 3D printing solutions. The company pioneered metal AM using metal powders and invented selective laser melting via the Laser Powder Bed Fusion AM method.
SLM's global clientele may soon have access to the first 100% recycled titanium metal powders as per the MoU with two industry leaders. Titanium has a significant negative influence on the environment, but with IperionX's innovative titanium technology, high-quality titanium powders can be produced using only recycled titanium feedstocks.
Anastasios (Taso) Arima, Co-Founder and CEO at IperionX, remarked, "We are pleased to be partnering with SLM, a global leader in metal 3D printing solutions. This agreement recognizes the value of sustainable, 100% recycled titanium metal powders for leading companies and will be a unique titanium powder offering for SLM's global customers."
