Mitsubishi HiTec Paper, launched its new giroform Digital OneforAll carbonless paper at Drupa, the latest in its giroform paper series.

Suitable for use on all toner-based printing systems and black and white copiers, the new paper is fully carbonless. 

“Carbonless paper plays an important role in the vast range of printing papers, without many end users or offices being fully aware of it. It is more economical and time saving than photocopying single printed sheets of paper,” said a spokes person.

The new paper follows on from two previous giroform products, giroform Digital, launched in 2006 and posited by the manufacturer as the world’s first carbonless paper for digital printing, and giroform Digital Light, launched in 2012. Garson said it combines the advantages of both products.

The paper is fully FSC certified with a base weight of 80gsm. It will be available in Coated Back (CB), Coated Front and Back (CFB) and Coated Front (CF) in reels of any size, A4 and SRA3 sheets or pre-collated sets. It feeds any digital printer. Mitsubishi exhibited other papers from various ranges at Drupa, including its jetscript DL 2584 for high-speed inket printing, jetscript MH 1484 for desktop ticket printers, and various HP-certified thermal papers.

On 1 April, Mitsubishi increased the cost of its coated specialty papers by 6%, as a response to the continued rise of the price of raw materials. This was its second price rise in seven months. 

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper produces its full range of specialty papers at its plants in Bielefeld and Flensburg. It employs approximately 700 people, producing 185,000 tonnes of paper per year.
