  • Detail

The new generation of ink system and printing technology promote the reform of packaging market

at present, packaging printers are facing higher and higher requirements. The highly competitive market pushes them to produce unique and eye-catching packaging, accelerate the turnover speed and reduce the overall cost. Environmental regulations and customers require their products to be safe and environmentally friendly. At the same time, all walks of life, including pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics, require packaging printers to ensure that the packaging has anti-theft and anti-counterfeiting functions

now, a new generation of ink systems and printing technology are expected to help packaging printers achieve the above goals. This kind of ink has the characteristics of multi-function, intelligence, environmental protection, low cost and high efficiency, which is far better than traditional products. Previously, packaging processors emphasized the selection of substrates to meet the final application requirements of packaging. Now, packaging processors are looking for this emerging ink system and printing technology to enhance packaging performance

the trend requires that

pay attention to efficiency. Using new ink systems and technologies, packaging printers can improve production efficiency and reduce production costs. Energy curing ink has the characteristics of short curing time and easy operation, which helps to greatly improve production efficiency. Ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) ink systems can cure in about 1/10 second. In contrast, traditional ink systems generally take several minutes or even days, but they should be "zeroed" or self revised before measurement to completely dry

the influence of ink material selection on the overall efficiency can be proved by coating UV curing bottom coating on the beverage can. By providing more concentrated materials and increasing the surface hardness of beverage cans, UV curing bottom coating can effectively improve the mobility of beverage cans in the whole filling line, thus greatly improving production efficiency

by adopting products such as automatic ink dispersion system and automatic color matching system, the manual processing workload of ink can be reduced, so as to maximize the efficiency of the printing workshop. These products contribute to the full automation of sheet fed and web fed printers. Technological progress in ink blending is also conducive to packaging and printing companies to improve production efficiency and reduce production costs

conducive to environmental protection. Nowadays, more and more packaging and printing companies take environmental protection factors into consideration. In recent years, many laws and regulations have been implemented to limit the total amount of packaging materials entering the garbage link. In view of this, packaging printers have been seeking to use environmentally friendly base materials. Now, by choosing various high-performance "green" inks, packaging printers can make greater contributions to keeping the environment clean

vegetable ink and soybean ink do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOC), which will not cause harm when discharged into the natural environment. These new energy curing ink systems are 100% solid and generally do not contain VOC. They meet the requirements of ecological protection and can effectively replace traditional ink systems. Some new solvent inks that do not contain hazardous gaseous pollutants (HAP) are also entering the inkjet printing market. These inks do not contain HAP and will not harm the environment. It is not easy to realize greening, but it is difficult to make it easy to adopt these ink products

pay attention to personalization. Packaging printers use digital printing technology to enhance packaging personalization. The "aim at the market" campaign aims to meet customer needs and encourage brand loyalty. Brand owners have begun to realize the value of this campaign. Digital printing can print unique packages suitable for different consumer groups, especially for the purpose of a small number of prints

now, with the continuous development of the ink field, digital printing can be extended to all kinds of substrates. Water based inks, solvent inks, UV curing inks, electron beam curing inks and other energy curing inks can now be used in the field of continuous ink jet printing (CIJ) and on demand printing (DoD). UV curing ink and electron beam curing ink have the characteristics of rapid curing, which can speed up the on-demand printing speed and shorten the turnover time

at the same time, this technology also greatly accelerates the printing speed and improves the printing quality. With the acceleration of printing speed and the adoption of new multifunctional inks, digital printing can be effectively extended to a wider range of packaging fields. Ink suppliers can provide suggestions to packaging printers on ink selection and the effective integration of digital technology into existing printing lines. Through close cooperation with ink suppliers, packaging printers can benefit a lot

intelligence and security. At present, customers continue to ask packaging printers to help improve the safety of packaging in transit. It is estimated that the losses caused by theft, tampering and counterfeiting of products account for 5% to 7% of the total world trade volume, about US $300billion per year. To solve this problem, packaging and printing companies are adopting a new generation of smart packaging and supply chain. 5.

using "smart" ink and conductive ink required by RFID technology, brand owners can track products throughout the supply chain and update inventory instantly. Conductive inks can be used as antennas in RFID applications. Using conductive ink instead of traditional coils, RFID technology will become a low-cost and efficient solution for brand owners. Among them, polyethylene is the most used

the "smart" label and packaging can ensure brand security and prevent product tampering. These technologies can also be used to monitor the status of products in transit and report problems to manufacturers. For example, if a product is stolen, the "smart" label can immediately notify the manufacturer. As a new "smart" ink and coating, brand protection ink contains hidden codes, which can form a unique logo when used in packaging. By adopting the above protection technology, brand owners can identify their products at any time

after the advent of a new generation of ink systems and printing technology, the business potential of printers has been expanded. With the expansion of selection, we must carefully select the appropriate ink formula to achieve customer goals and meet packaging requirements. Ink suppliers are partners of packaging printers in the process of seeking high-performance packaging. Through close cooperation with ink suppliers, packaging printers can maximize the potential of the latest technology, thereby promoting packaging innovation now and in the future
