Packaging Solutions


Packaging Opportunities For Forward-Th Packaging continues to show exceptional growth, outperforming most other print industry segments. There's never been a better time for companies to take advantage of the commercial opportunity that package printing offers.

As in all areas of print, packaging production has evolved. With the growth in niche marketing, there is increasing demand for high quality, competitively priced short-run print jobs produced on a tight schedule. 2005

The package printing market continues to show consistently strong growth.

Product packaging is becoming an increasingly important promotional tool as new items flood already competitive markets. As a result, some segments naturally offer greater returns...

Packaging Success With Screen Solutions While the package market as a whole offers excellent returns, four segments show particularly strong growth. Screen offers compelling and comprehensive solutions in each of these target areas, for both conventional and on-demand print applications.

Label Printing Labels are used on a wide variety of items and are used for many different purposes. As a result they use a wide range of print materials and production methods. This segment shows a strong demand for converters that can deliver a full range of high quality, short run jobs with rapid turnaround – needs that can be met using Screen’s PlateRite FX870II hybrid CtP recorder and the Truepress Jet L350UV high-speed inkjet label printing system. The PlateRite FX870II offers outstanding large-scale flexibility, handling jobs ranging from flexo and letterpress through to dry film and thermal offset. With its precise 4,800 dpi resolution, this system is able to faithfully reproduce 1pt text characters, complex illustrations and security images. It also delivers major improvements in reproducing fine details using FlexoDot and Spekta screening. With the demand for short-run, fast turnaround label printing growing rapidly, Screen has developed the Truepress Jet L350UV. This highspeed inkjet printer enables converters to deliver short run jobs on a tight deadline while still providing the highest print quality.

Folding Cartons While this segment has traditionally focused on large-scale production, the demand for high quality, short-run work has also started to expand in recent years. In the CtP field, the PlateRite HD 8900 series provides both high throughput and, thanks to its 4,000 dpi resolution, superb quality. For paper package printers requiring larger plate sizes, the specialised PlateRite Ultima 16000II is also available. Together, these platesetters create significant added value for converters in the package printing market. With digital printing also becoming increasingly attractive in this segment, Screen has now introduced support for cardboard stocks for its Truepress JetSX inkjet printing system, opening up a range of new business opportunities. This functionality will allow converters to easily handle on-demand work such as seasonal campaigns, regional distribution or exclusive product releases. Personalised packaging or pre-release product samples can also be turned around quickly.

Corrugated Board & POP Display The traditional image of cardboard boxes as generic brown cubes with black lettering is rapidly disappearing. These days, at least in the consumer market, this packaging is more likely to be decorated with eye-catching, multi-coloured designs promoting the value of products as diverse as personal computers and televisions to potato chips and beer. Cardboard has also found a new application as a media for POP displays and other in-store promotional materials such as catalogue racks. The PlateRite FX1524 and PlateRite FX1200 represent an ideal solution to the platemaking requirements of the flexo printing used for large-size boxes. These platesetters provide advanced flexo CtP capabilities for jobs ranging from coarse right through to high-precision printing. Meanwhile the Truepress Jet2500UV and Truepress Jet1600UV-F2 have opened up a new and growing market, enabling converters to deliver the high quality, shortrun printing for POP display and other promotional materials.

PlateRite HD 8900

Flexible Packaging The flexible packaging segment continues to grow, with demand for items such as printed bags, liners, and wraps still expanding in many countries. While some converters still use gravure printing, flexo has been attracting a great deal of attention in recent years due to its superior environmental friendliness. In this segment too, the PlateRite FX1524 and PlateRite FX1200 are able to supply the high quality plates required for precise, large scale flexo CtP. These plates are suitable for CI type flexo presses, delivering improved printing quality in this segment. Thanks to their 4,800 dpi resolution and Flexo Dot screening, these platesetters have the ability to produce output on flexible packages that is comparable in quality to gravure printing.
