PrintCity: FachPack 2018 – Design, Added Value & Production

The PrintCity Alliance will be further expanding its activities for FachPack 2018 and not only exhibiting at its shared stand in the PackBox, but also hosting a seminar on “Packaging design, finishing and production”. The Alliance’s two, newest members, epple and IST Metz, will be joining the team for the first time.

Innovations without having to go far

The Alliance will be exhibiting its latest joint project, a multi-part, highly finished luxury package for a cosmetic product, and a number of other current products and solutions:

Cartonboard with ecological barriers, digital finishing, brand protection, an extremely low-migration UV gloss lacquer, inks for inside package printing and a virtual reality headset produced with UV technology.

At the shared stand, visitors can see a complete range of innovations without having to go far.

 

Seminar: “Packaging design, finishing and production”

The seminar will address the following questions based on numerous samples and practical examples:

How can a brand be ideally positioned at the POS? What impact does e-commerce have on packaging? What new technologies can help me position my product more effectively? What options exist for communicating directly with customers? What role can digital printing play?

The seminar takes place on Wednesday, 26.09.2018, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the PackBox (Hall 7).

 

Participating companies:

Epple Druckfarben (offset inks and coatings), IST Metz (UV curing systems), LEONHARD KURZ (hot stamping and cold foil applications, holograms), Metsä Board (folding cartonboard), WEILBURGER Grap... [read more]

 

UV specialist IST METZ strengthens PrintCity Alliance

UV specialist IST METZ has been a member of the PrintCity Alliance since 1 January 2018. The machine systems provider, based in Nürtingen, Germany, has already participated in the first few events of the year, including the 5th Packaging Inspiration Forum in Hamburg and Packaging Innovations in Warsaw and Zürich.

UV competence strengthens the Network

True to company slogan “energy in light”, IST METZ invests its energy in a range of systems all centred on special light sources. For over 40 years, IST METZ has been manufacturing systems for curing print products and coatings with UV light, though the organisation has long stood for more than just its traditional UV lamp technology. “By joining the PrintCity Alliance, we are looking forward to both strengthening and benefiting from its network and event partnership,” says Jens Langer, Sales Director at IST METZ. “What impressed us most about the PrintCity Alliance was the diverse possibilities it offers for keeping ourselves and our customers up-to-date on the market and current trends in the graphic arts industry,” Langer says.

The TroFilms GmbH at LUXE PACK Shanghai

TroFilms GmbH, based in Georgensgmünd in central Franconia, can look back on a very successful trade fair participation as an exhibitor at LUXE PACK Shanghai.

Together with the Chinese partner Leading Technologies Co., Ltd. (LEADINGTECH) and the company WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, an internationally renowned manufacturer of varnishes, flexo-inks and adhesives for the graphics industry from the Franconian town Gerhardshofen, TroFilms GmbH attended for the fourth time this year in China. The well-attended LUXE PACK Shanghai, which took place at the Shanghai Exhibition Center this year from 11 to 12 April, once again proved to be an excellent choice for talking to Asian printing companies, refiners, agencies and branded companies and for planning joint projects. At the two-day show, TroFilms presented its well-known and established film products, including TroPROTECT®, a scratch-resistant matt film and TroTEMPTATION®, a scratch and abrasion-reduced matt film with a special haptic effect; both are available for three different application...

5th Packaging Inspiration Forum: Trends and Consumer Behaviour

Trends in the packaging industry and the increasingly rapid changes in consumer behaviour were the overriding themes at the 5th Packaging Inspiration Forum, held by the PrintCity Alliance in Hamburg on 26 and 27 February 2018.

The one-and-a-half days of the event offered an ideal opportunity for further discussion of the presentations, breakout and panel sessions. The event achieved 150 visitors, a record number. As in previous years, the Grand Elysée Hotel was the ideal venue.

 

Trends in the packaging industry and consumer behaviour

Trends in society are changing at a breathtaking rate, heading consistently in multiple, often seemingly contradictory, directions. It is consequently becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between real trends and hypes. Technical development, very largely driven by digitisation, is likewise making rapid progress.

In a series of presentations, the speakers approached these topics from widely different angles, thus providing inspiration and ideas. The subjects addressed in this context included not only changes in society... [read more]

New low-migration blister coating from WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH

The company has developed a new coating formulation for blister coatings with optimized processing parameters in close collaboration with its customers.

The resulting low migration coating is now available under the product identifier SENOLITH® WB BLISTER COATING FP NDC 359503.

 

Due to the new formulation, this coating can be processed at activation temperatures of 145 °C at high cycle rates in the blister process.

 

Further advantages of the SENOLITH® WB BLISTER COATING FP NDC 359503 are:

  • Sealability with all common blister foils
  • Good bond adhesion
  • Less influence of temperature on the blister film and the product
  • Energy saving due to low activation temperature
  • Potential increase in productivity by reducing cycle times
  • Safe inline processing on the printing machine

 

The SENOLITH® WB BLISTER COATING FP NDC 359503 was successfully tested by various customers of WEIL... [read more]
