FEBRUARY 2018 ISSUE    

Automation for printers is likely to be a hot topic in 2018. The saying that ‘time is money’ has never been more apt. The more time spent ‘touching’ something – manual data entry, preparing estimates, reconciling accounts or creating email campaigns – the more it eats away at printers’ profits. There’s a critical need for printers to become more efficient, streamline processes and stop costly mistakes. In 2018, automation is paramount in order for a print business to thrive. This is a topic under PPM’s spotlight in February.

PREFORMS: OUTLOOK FOR 2018

How are challenges such as the introduction of the beverage sector sugar tax likely to affect PET packaging for carbonated soft drinks in the year ahead? This topic is discussed by representatives of South Africa’s leading PET preform producers.

FOLDING CARTONS: PROFITING FROM GOING DIGITAL

South Africa is blessed with a thriving folding carton sector driven primarily by the growth in quick service restaurants and home/office ready meal deliveries. We will be exploring which digital printing and converting equipment, materials, coatings and finishing techniques are emerging as new trends and contributing to this sector’s ability to meet brand owners’ growing need for personalised/ customised promotional campaigns across the beer, wine, fresh produce and fast food markets.

If your company is making a contribution to this sector’s success and growth, PPM’s editors want to hear about it.

PRODUCTION COMPLEXITY SPURS CODING TECHNOLOGY EVOLUTION

As production targets increase, wide-web applications become more common and code content complexity proliferates, OEMs are producing laser marking solutions with faster printing speeds and greater versatility.

We also examine the latest thermal transfer overprinting developments for printing codes on flat, thin, flexible films as well as ink introductions that overcome a host of production challenges.

PPM’s editors would love to hear about how your company's ground-breaking designs, introductions or machinery developments are helping customers’ differentiate their brands and improve production efficiencies.

LABELLING AND NARROW WEB

Among burning issues for labelling right now are the inter-related technologies of UV LED curing and low-migration inks, with particular reference to food safety.

UNLOCKING MULTIPLE BENEFITS

Contemporary closure producers need to ensure that these components are multitaskers – safeguarding the product’s freshness and integrity, improving consumer convenience through its resealability features, and meeting demands for better branding alongside regulatory requirements of increased recyclability and lightweighting.

In this issue, we look into the latest closure and cap developments for cans, jars, tubs, pouches and bottles, along with the machinery that seals these containers.

INSPECTION CODING AND MARKING

As supply chain integrity becomes increasingly important in the food and pharma industries, staying abreast of latest developments in inspection coding and marking is growing in importance. These developments are featured in our February issue – don’t miss the opportunity to get your news out to your market.
