Packaging industry faces competition

HCM CITY — Plastic packaging manufacturers have been forced to make adjustments in anticipation of more competition in the overseas markets.

In the first six months of the year, the plastics industry exported US$825 million, up by 21 per cent compared over the same period last year.

Independent market observers said this was a positive sign because the export value of many industries, such as garments and footwear, in the country had grown slowly in the period, averaging only 10 per cent growth rate.

However, many CEOs of plastics-production enterprises, particularly plastic-bag manufacturers, said they had foreseen problems that could affect their export activities.

According to the Viet Nam Plastics Association, Japan, the EU and the US are the biggest importers of Vietnamese plastic products, at rate of 27 per cent, 25 per cent and 12 per cent, respectively.

Plastic packaging accounts for 66 per cent of the total plastic industry’s export value.

However, consumption has decreased in these overseas markets because of prolonged economic recession, affecting the Vietnamese industry.

Tran Viet Anh, general director of the Nam Thai Son Import and Export Company that specialises in plastic-bag exports, said 60 per cent of the company’s total products were exported to the EU market.

However, since May the number of orders from that market had begun to drop, Son said.

The company had to cut production prices to ensure this year’s export value of US$22 million, equivalent to last year’s figure, are maintained.

Nguyen Van Khue, general director of the RKW – Lotus Joint Stock Company, said that Viet Nam’s exports of plastic bags to the EU had some advantages because this market had placed anti-dumping duties on plastic bags from Thailand and China, with rates of between 7.9 and 14.3 per cent, and between 8.4 and 28.8 per cent, respectively.

The duties on Thai and Chinese plastic bags caused prices to jump 10 per cent higher than similar Vietnamese products, according to Khue.

However, the EU’s anti-dumping policy on Thai and Chinese plastic bags is expected to be lifted in September, so the Vietnamese product’s price advantage will be lost.

Japan is a big importer of Vietnamese plastic bags, but the country is a choosy market and has rejected large volumes of Vietnamese plastic products, according to Anh.

Pham Trung Cang, chairman of the Dai Tan Hung Plastic Joint-Stock Company, warned of unhealthy competition occurring among domestic plastic bag manufacturers which have cut prices.

Anh said that those companies’ profits were too low to allow them to reinvest in their business — VNS

What is packaging

What is packaging? Who needs it?

In the world we live in today, packaging is very important. The fact that everywhere you look, something is protected by some sort of packaging just shows us how much it is a part of our lives.

Packaging is used to protect a variety of different products, ranging from chocolate wrappers to boxes of hi-fi systems. You can find a wide range of shapes and sizes, all designed for different purposes. Take for example, the type of packaging that protects our daily fresh food from germs and bacteria; special adhesives, cartons, containers and plastic bags, all in some way protect the food and are regarded as a form of packaging.

There is one imperative issue related to this topic as to why we need it, and that is the fact that it contains the information, which tells us about the product, its ingredients and any instructions we might need. This is critical for some people as they may have an allergy to a particular ingredient and must know whether the product contains it or not.

So who needs packaging? Well, the answer is EVERYONE! Whether it’s the consumer purchasing the product, the company promoting it, or even the people who do the deliveries; packaging is always needed for some reason or another.

When fruit or meat, for example, are delivered overseas or imported, they need to be well packaged. This is because, in the case of fruit, it can become damaged and bruised, causing it to rot. While in the case of meat, well isn’t the answer already obvious? You wouldn’t want a contaminated piece of chicken for your Sunday roast, would you?

A fragile item should be always packaged well when being transported in order to protect it from any sort of damage. Then when it has been finished with, you’ll find most packaging can be recycled or re-used somehow.

Packaging tends to be attractive for one sole reason, to appeal to the customers, interest them and entice them. In fact, you’ll probably find that the more creative and attractive the packaging is, the greater the cost of the product.

Now as with everything, packaging has its own benefits and drawbacks. I think I have mentioned most of the advantages.

Books surface finishing process

1. UV glazingUV (Ultraviolet) also called UV curing glazing glazing process. UV glazing oil is in the 1980 s the rise of
 new material.
Glazing technology can enhance the appearance of the print, the color is more bright-coloured and bright, and it also can improve the performance of printed matter, enhance the protection performance of the print. UV
 glazing whole wide glazing and partial glazing. The former is referred to as “UV oil” or “oil”, the latter is referred to as “local UV”.
UV glazing type with high gloss and matte type two kinds. UV glazing quality is quite high, local UV glazing, especially by comparison with high gloss and matte screen can produce wonderful artistic effect. At the same time, the ultraviolet radiation curing, does not produce waste, no pollution to the environment. Local UV glazing, combining with other process also to make ice, foaming, wrinkles, grinding, such as refraction, pearl effect. Since the local UV glazing appear in books after finishing a couple of years ago, in 2003, and 2004 presented a use, are widely applied to press the cover of the book binding, especially children, economics, literature, management, by category.
2. The effect of Coated with transparent plastic film by hot pressing is attached to the surface of a sealed book, the friction resistance, resistance to moisture, light, waterproof and antifouling functions “, and increase its luster. Has two kinds of high gloss and matte film, high gloss sparkling type thin film surface of books and gorgeous; Matt is books of primitive simplicity, and elegance. But the effect of the used plastic film is non-biodegradable material, adverse to the environment. Now 90% of all books in the use of the process, the general and local UV glazing, are also on the cover of the books in themembrane. Some printing enterprise in the use of environmental protection membrane, some local  UV glazing in test is not coated. Foreign books, generally not coated, domestic also has many publishers began to
abandon laminating and low use cost and environmental protection way of UV glazing cover trims.
3. The concave-convex embossing. This is not ink for “printing” process. Concave-convex embossing and pressure bump, convex, concave and convex model is the use of mutual matching steel or copper,delivery is concave and convex three dimensional shape ofthe graphic or plating design Outlines. In book binding, concave-convex embossing are mainly used for printing HanTao, cover text and pattern or wire frame, in order to improve the print of the stereo feeling, also can  e in after the concave-convex embossing printing ink or local UV glazing, make the graphic more outstanding. This  echnology is also widely used in hardcover or paperback books seal shell and cover. With manual sculpture, but also
can make three or four levels of emboss effect.
4. Color foil hot stamping Color foil hot stamping is in wood, leather, abric, paper or plastic on the cover of the book and other materials, in gold, silver, red or other colors of electrochemical  aluminum foil or powder foil (matte )printed on the title or by heating pattern, wire frames, etc. Book covers after color foil stamping appears high and luxuriant, enhanced the light flashes of the print. Trims used widely
cover this way. Used in hardcover book cover and book bronzing, hot silver, and now and book in paperback cover bronzing, hot silver, also more and more. Some still in paperback book Huan Chen appears on the title page, bronzing, hot silver, because silver print on the ring leaf color paper, can produce lasting appeal unique effect.
5. Die cutting and creasing Die cutting is to use steel knife tablets in die cutting, print or paper mill on the die-cutting machine cut into certain shape, it can be print or other complex shape rolling cut into arc, can also be carried out on the print punching processing or hollow out, etc. Indentation also called ndentation line or wire, using steel wire, through the pressure seal, pressure on the print out, or leaving the groove for bending.
Generally thicker cover books, in the fold on the left side of the cover in indentation processing.
6. Plating (embossing)In paper or cardboard surface suppression of different texture of the grain, can change the normal texture on the surface of the  coated paper or cardboard to make it like leather, cloth, hemp products, weaving, carpet, bark, wood grain, pear peel, orange peel, etc., can make it with the clouds, leaves, elegant lines, also can make its have the dignified like oracle, earthenware grain. Now
used for the design of lines on the surface of the books can follow one’s inclinationsly, and can be on a page printed on several different lines at the same time.
7. Plastic is a transparent flexible or rigid crystal glue evenly onto the surface, make the surface
have a glittering and translucent crystal,three-dimensional effect. Can be plastic in the material such as paper, polyester, PVC, metal surface, plastic surface also has a water resistant, resistant to moisture, UV light resistance and other properties.The refractive indentation.
8. Refraction indentation is conducted has a electrochemical aluminum foil hot stamping or mirror substrates such as aluminum papersurface with the aid of lp pressure convex process from different directions are arranged in a straight line or arc slightly concave and convex lines. Can make full use of it instead of ink, paper surface state, according to the principle of the diffuse light, multi-side light changes, can make the picture have layers of depth image, so the refractive printing has a unique charming effect. Its on the surface of the concave and convex lines on the surface of the light reflection to make different books image shines, novel and chic, with thechange of the Angle by light, the image text is like concealed, extremely rich move feeling and stereo feeling, lifelike, and have anti-counterfeit effect. Refraction processing generally for aluminized paper, paper surface of gold, silver, etc, and have the matte paper, of quantitative is 80 ~ 250 g/m2.
9. The surface grinding. Use of external force, by breaking the print surface deformation with 3 d effect and uniform sand of concave and convex point. The process often applied together with hot stamping.

Pictorial printing paper of the matters needing attention

Pictorial printing paper
Pictorial printing printing is a kind of rely on visual impact of goods and works of art, its quality is good or bad depends on many factors, the paper features is undoubtedly one of the important factors. Good performance of the paper, which can completely finish transfer ink, makes clear, full graphic representation in the paper, so as to get satisfactory effect of replication. But because the material such as paper, and technology factors such as limit, most color continuous tone images is not faithfully copying and reproduction, and can only make the printing image close to original as possible.
One, the paper features affect print gloss
In the process of printing, ink film is transferred to the paper surface, uneven and fill in the paper, make the print surface is quite smooth. Printing ink membrane surface light depends on the size of the print gloss mirror reflection, with paper and ink membrane surface properties are closely related.
1. The ink film thickness
Ink film thickness are the main factors influencing the gloss print. In paper ink absorption maximum link later, the rest of the links is expected to remain in the ink film, it can effectively improve the luster of the print. Link ink film is thicker, the rest of the material, the more the more conducive to improve the luster of the print. Research has found that luster with the trend of the ink film thickness increase, due to the different paper is different. High gloss coated paper in ink film is thinner, its print gloss decreased with increasing of the ink film thickness, this is because the ink film covered up the original high gloss paper itself, and the luster of the ink film formation and absorption due to paper. With the increase of ink film thickness, original high gloss paper itself the more difficult it will be reflected through the ink film. When the ink film thickness at 1.5 mu m, paper to link basic saturated absorption. Later, as the ink film thickness continue to increase, keep connecting material, the more luster also is increasing. Coating paper print in ink film is thin sheen with the increase of the ink film thickness increase rapidly, after the ink film thickness increases to 3.8 mu m, luster is no longer with the increase of the ink film thickness increased. But no matter what kind of paper, gloss over the ink film thickness increases with the increase of the amount should have certain limit.
2. The characteristics of paper to print gloss
The paper fibers intertwined to form capillary network structure, has a large number of pores, formed the foundation of ink absorption. Paper capillary network to ink links is the absorption of time and material balance between fixation time determines the print gloss formed links material penetration. General print gloss all along with the enhancement of paper absorption capacity decreased.
Paper smoothness and gloss itself affect print gloss. High smoothness is beneficial to form a smooth ink film, thus improve the print gloss. Paper itself gloss, and can improve the reflectivity of ink film, especially for transparent printing ink. Two kinds of printing ink printing in 4 kinds of burnish different results on the coated paper. Visible from the figure, the two kind of ink prints gloss all along with the increase of paper itself luster. Correlation between the print gloss and paper itself gloss than print gloss and paper of the correlation between absorption ability is stronger.
Can be found from the above discussion, the paper smoothness, gloss, and there are correlation between absorptive capacity. From the paper making process is very easy to explain this. Pressure light processing, for example, can improve the paper smoothness and gloss, at the same time also reduce the pore volume of paper, so as to reduce the absorption of paper. In addition, the pH value is also print gloss on the surface of the paper forms a factor can not be ignored, pH value is high, is beneficial to ink drying, thus to improve the luster of the print.
Second, the paper features affect order the reappearance of printing image
Ideal order tone reproduction is technology to obtain high quality printing images is the most important link, the most bad print is caused by gradual reproduction problems.
Image copy first requirement is to be reproduced images matching with original on the vision. But in fact, in most case, it is not possible. In most cases, the original density range is bigger than printing image density range, and with the reduction of paper quality can copy density range is smaller, the same is true for saturation and color.
Solution is to compress the original order of tuning range, make its and paper can reproduce density range is matched.
3, paper characteristics of dot gain a lot of influence
1. The network increases
Increase outlets to replicate hue change influence is larger than any other variables. In paper printing ink quantity will affect the network increases, while network increases affect the printing contrast. When printing black and white or color eye image, increase network will change the image contrast and the loss of image detail and clarity. In multi-color printing, network increase will lead to the loss of contrast, dark images, network paste death and cause a dramatic color change.
2. The paper features affect dot gain a lot of
Ink of the smooth surface on the high quality of paper produced the best field density, when the quality of paper, ink field density is reduced, produce certain dot enlargement, affect the quality of the print.
Screen density is higher, the smaller the dot diameter, tiny pits on a paper can distort or omission small plate outlets. Therefore, line number, the higher the fine print, the higher the paper smoothness. This is a principle to choose paper. But in actual work, also can appropriate adjust the ink of certain performance or a change in process parameters to adapt to this paper.
4, the influence of the characteristics of paper on printing overprint precision
For the fine print, alignment requirements is higher, generally permissible error within 0.05 mm. Multicolor printing, lead to misregister for many reasons, but the printing paper produced due to the moisture content changing during the process of deformation is an important factor of the paper.
As is known to all, paper moisture content changes not only caused the paper to expand or contract, and because the water content change makes the local paper size change, so as to produce other forms of deformation, such as curly, wrinkles, and so on. This distortion seriously affect printing printing workers are concerned about the relative humidity affect the paper moisture content.
(1) at room temperature, high humidity caused relative humidity change when the rate of change of water content than the humidity when relative humidity changes cause the rate of change of water content is much bigger; Low humidity. From this perspective, printing under the condition of moderate humidity for the best.
(2) the two form a closed hysteresis loop, a phenomenon known as wet paper hysteresis. Characterized by: a relative humidity of water balance under the condition of paper, if again after hygroscopic (moisture), back to the original relatively wet conditions in the air, the water content is increased than the original (reduce).
In order to keep the moisture content of paper in the whole paper uniform, and corresponds to a printing workshop temperature and humidity; At the same time, in order to make the paper on the environment humidity sensitive degree, improve the stability of the paper size, generally before printing, must carry on the wet (dry) processing

Package Industries and Printing Introduction

Digital printing refers to methods of printing from a digital based image directly to a variety of media. It usually refers to professional

printing where small run jobs from desktop publishing and other digital sources are printed using large format and/or high volume

laser or inkjet printers.

Digital printing has a higher cost per page than more traditional offset printing methods but this price is usually offset by the cost

saving in avoiding all the technical steps in between needed to make printing plates. It also allows for on demand printing, short turn

around, and even a modification of the image (variable data) with each impression. The savings in labor and ever increasing

capability of digital presses means digital printing is reaching a point where it will match or supersede offset printing technologies

ability to produce larger print runs at a low price.

Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique where the inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber

blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil

and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink

rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called “fountain solution”), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

Viscosity printing is a multi-color printmaking technique that incorporates principles of relief printing and intaglio printing. It was

pioneered by Stanley William Hayter. The process uses the principle of viscosity to print multiple colors of ink from a single plate,

rather than relying upon multiple plates for color separation. It is a fine art printmaking technique, as it is too slow and allows too

much variation between proofs to make the printing of a large edition feasible.

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open

areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a

substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the

open areas.

Corlor printing or Colour printing is the reproduction of an image or text in color (as opposed to simpler black and white or

monochrome printing). Any natural scene or color photograph can be optically and physiologically dissected into three Primary

Colors, red, green and blue, roughly equal amounts of which give rise to the perception of white, and different proportions of which

give rise to the visual sensations of all other colors.

Woodblock printing is a technique for printing text, images or patterns used widely throughout East Asia and originating in China in

antiquity as a method of printing on textiles and later paper.

South America is predicted as packaging industry the most competitive areas

By 2020, the South American important capacity expansion plan will make global forest, paper, packaging (FP&P) market increased from 20 million tons, 30 million tons. According to the 2013 global forest, paper, packaging trends: there is a change, by deloitte touche tohmatsu (DTTL) report by the global manufacturing industry group, shows the influence of global markets in South America.
The report highlights the growing global FP&P South America industry influence, as a new consumer base, the region rely on paper imports to meet growing demand is expected to continue, the report also predicts that the investment of South America’s most advanced production equipment, has important position in the competitive global market.
“Chemical pulp expansion plans may has a far-reaching influence on the global market, and affect manufacturers over the next few years, strategic investment,” the world’s forests, paper and packaging industry leader, John? Dickson said. “For example, some European FP&P enterprise has made major investments in South America, advanced technology and efficient factory new process can be used as the company’s competitive advantage in the region.”
According to the report, five producers in South America between 700 and 8 million tons of products in 2014, is expected to be targeted for export markets. Dickson said: “as the rising global demand, exports in South America may be with their most important trading partners – China market competition, in the next few years China remains the largest consumers of global chemical pulp.
Report conclusion pointed out that China’s long-term support to the global market demand FP&P industry growth. In addition, the report discusses the has the potential to become the important force to promote in other parts of the South American.
“Global FP&P company for strategic investments in emerging markets, such as in South America, it is likely to become a com

Gravure and flexo in soft packing printing five differences

1, flexible printing equipment investment is relatively less.
2, the current is less than gravure printing flexographic printingquality, along with the anilox roll manufacturing technology and flexible version of the improvement of technology, flexible edition quality will gradually increase.
3, in the aspect of form a complete set of consumables, flexible printing required the large amount of consumable imports (expensive), and has achieved localization of intaglio printing consumables, and domestic supplies completely self-sufficient.
4, flexible printing has the very high environmental protection, environmental protection, gravure printing is relatively less.
5, from cost Angle to consider, flexo printing in small batch products more economy, and gravure printing is more suitable for mass printing.
