The Hapa 862, from Hapa AG, is a modular, CMYK/spot-color inkjet printing system for the in-line packaging printing of foils and labels. With its flexibility and scalability, it eases the manufacturer’s challenges of SKU and supply-chain complexities, frequent line changeovers, and evolving legislative requirements. The Hapa 862 is engineered in compliance with the stringent requirements of the pharmaceutical sector and follows current best practice in machinery and software design. Scalable and modular, the printing system can be integrated with customers’ existing packaging lines in top- or stand-mounted configurations, or alternatively, it can operate offline as a roll-to-roll machine.


The new EU track & trace legislation will require each pack to be identifiable with a unique on-pack code incorporating both machine-readable and human-readable elements. The Hapa 862 provides the solution to this challenge, printing artwork and variable data in a single pass at speeds up to 54 meters/minute on high-speed lines. Immediate UV-LED curing ensures the printed substrates or products are ready for onward processing.

Hapa AG is also showcasing at ACHEMA a new human machine interface (HMI) alongside the Hapa 862. Co-developed with other Coesia companies, the user interface is designed for usability and ease of integration into ERP and workflows. It simplifies batch set-up and minimizes training requirements in factories operating multiple lines of Hapa equipment.
