KHS Corpoplast (U.S. office in Waukesha, Wis.) hosted a demonstration of direct digital printing on PET bottles at NPE2015 last month. Marketed by sister company NMP Systems GmbH, the technology uses inkjet printing and low-migration inks to provide high-speed, on-demand printing of bottles that are 100% recyclable, according to KHS.

Digital printing does away with labels and allows contactless printing of a variety of images at high speed, controlled by software.
