FLEXO FORUM: HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR ANILOX

To capitalise fully on relentless improvements in flexography, printers need to understand matters such as anilox screen specifications – such as line count and volume – as well as engraving type and cell geometry.

With a large number of anilox suppliers vying for business, and all making non-stop investments in innovative technologies, choosing the right anilox becomes ever-more complex. And further complicating the matter is fixed palette or Expanded Colour Gamut printing, which critically affects the ability of the anilox to adhere to volume tolerances for the sake of absolute consistency.

In the July issue, PPM gets to grips with some of these questions and outlines some of the latest technologies available from anilox manufacturers.

 

THERMOFORMING: MATERIALS, DECORATION AND MACHINERY

PPM reveals how producers are focusing on providing clear alternatives to aluminium foil and metallised films and cans; pushing the boundaries with new decorative techniques; and improving on-the-go convenience and portionability for dairy products, chilled desserts, sauces, spreads and baked goods.

OEMs of thermoforming packaging machines, on the other hand, are simplifying designs, enabling quick changeovers and preventing product deformity.

 

TRACK AND TRACE SOLUTIONS

 

Traceability is becoming increasingly critical throughout the FMCG supply chain, especially with food and pharmaceutical product regulations, tampering, fraud and counterfeiting becoming more complex and prevalent.

PPM investigates the latest improvements in labels and variable barcodes; printers, scanners, barcode readers plus software and data management systems for enhancing product authentication/brand verification, safety and security.

FAST TRACKING FUNCTIONALITY & CONVENIENCE

Purveyors of fast foods, ready meals and snacks are constantly repackaging their products to attract and satisfy consumers’ on-the-go eating habits. This growing trend has resulted in innovative concepts such as stacked snack packaging, biodegradable packaging, high-quality folding carton graphics, and high-performance film structures that are less permeable to increase shelf-life and enhance flavours.
           
In the July issue, we uncover creative ways in which to improve a pack’s functionality and heighten time-conscious consumers’ eating experiences.
