Ink Wastewater Treatment: How eco-friendly is water-based ink?
May 19, 2021 | Daywey Chen
Yes, when compared to solvent-based ink, water-based ink emits much fewer VOCs into the air making it more eco-friendly. However, this doesn’t mean that during production one can just wash up the ink waste and simply let it go down the drain. The wastewater from water-based ink contains pigments, dynes, vehicles, auxiliary solvents, and additives that are harmful to the environment. Water-based ink is better, but it is not perfect. The wastewater needs to be treated before it can be discharged. In this article, we are going to explore two different wastewater treatments used in practice which are chemical treatment and electrolysis treatment.
General rule of thumb: solid printing V.S highlight printing
May 13, 2021 | Daywey Chen
Flexo printing is about a combination of factors working together in harmony to reach an optimal printing result. To many, there are just too many factors to consider, making the process complicated and hard to master. For this reason, it has scared off many printers and converters in attempting flexo printing. Yes, there are many factors to consider. However, there is always a general rule of thumb. As long as one gets familiar with the rule of thumb and follows it through, one wouldn’t sway too far away from a decent flexo print. Today, we are going to discuss the general rule of thumb for printing solid versus printing highlights.
The guide to a perfect flexo plate
April 23, 2021 | Daywey Chen
What is the definition of a perfect flexo plate? Well, this really depends on what you are going after? Are you going for the best possible image quality possible? Are you looking for the lowest cost plate? Are you looking to print images with lots of highlights? Are you looking to print images with lots of solid areas? A perfect flexo plate really depends on your requirements. In this article, we are going to look into the different metrics that you should consider when seeking and designing a flexo plate for your production. These metrics include 1. Line screen level 2. Flat top dots 3. Plate hardness 4. Plate duration 5. Micro Screening Plate 6. Plate surface tension.
Why you should give UV-LED a thought when it comes to coating?
March 17, 2021 | Daywey Chen

There are several purposes of coating over a print. To provide a protective layer over the print, or to provide a separation layer between the packaging and the product. To help to keep the product fresh. To enhance the graphical image, helping the brand stand out from the crowd. If you are already using UV coating, or if you are a high coating usage user, then you consider the UV-LED coating methodology. There are several advantages to the UV-LED coating that sets it apart from UV coating. Let’s look more deeply into it through its technical properties and environmental impact.
Flexo UV-LED Curing in a Nutshell
March 8, 2021 | Daywey Chen

As technology advances printers from the flexible packaging industries are provided with more choices to select from. Inks and their drying methods are among one of the categories where printers have gain access to a variety of selections. The solvent-based ink, water-based ink, UV ink, EB ink…etc. Today we are going to discuss about UV-LED and its curing(drying) method. To explore the benefits and at the same time its disadvantages so that printers can obtain an unbiased review on the UV-LED technology. Advantages: leveraged operation efficiencies, increase business opportunities, higher print quality, more environmentally friendly. Disadvantages: higher cost, shorter ink shelf life.


Flexography matching Rotogravure?
February 17, 2021 | Daywey Chen
Currently, rotogravure is a more widely adopted printing process in the East. Due to environmental issues and production efficiency requirements. Many printers and converters are switching from the Rotogravure over to the Flexographic printing process. However, one of the biggest obstacles that are preventing the switch is the print quality. Rotogravure has been known to produce high quality prints easily. Traditionally, flexography is unable to match the printing quality of the rotogravure. But as flexography matures and advances, the quality gap between the two is closing up. To produce a good quality print in flexographic printing, one must first obtain a suitable flexo plate and anilox combination. A suitable combination will allow for high quality flexographic print to match the quality of the rotogravure print.

UV-LED Application on Metallic Ink
January 19, 2021 | jugadores de handball uruguayos Marketing
As higher ink density will tend to produce better metallic print, this makes UV-LED ink a better choice than solvent based ink when it comes to metallic print. An important feature of UV inks are that when cured, close to the entire ink deposit will be transformed into solid. Everything you print onto substrate stays there. As for solvent based ink, the solvents within the ink will evaporate during the drying process. As the solvents evaporate, the ink deposit will continue to decrease until only the pigments and resins remain. As a result, UV-LED ink produces a higher quality metallic ink than solvent based metallic ink in most cases.
The Guide to Selecting the Right Coating for Packaging
December 11, 2020 | Daywey Chen
Different coating methodologies serve to meet different purposes in packaging. There are lots of options for standard and specialty finishes. This can be confusing and overwhelming for many. In this guide, you learn how to choose the right coating based on the compatibility with your overall packaging specification such as the substrate used, the design requirements, and the budget constraint.
The Role of Laminating in Flexible Packaging
November 16, 2020 | Daywey Chen
The purpose of the laminating process is to produce a final flexible packaging with enhanced barrier properties, appearance and strength. Therefore, it can be applied to any applications that are looking for enhanced barrier properties, appearance and strength. Typically, lamination is found in an application where the product needs the packaging to extend its shelf life and to keep it fresh. A common application is the food industry...

Find out if you are ready for ECG printing
October 27, 2020 | Daywey Chen

ECG is receiving greater attention in recent years because as print jobs are getting shorter and shorter, the number of job-change requirements is increasing. If the printer is able to set 7 colors to cover all jobs, then it prevents the need for color change during job-change. This will greatly reduce the job-changing time. Money is generated during press operation, not during job setup. However, it is more easily said than done. At the end of the day, if your operation is not ECG-ready, then we strongly advise you not to attempt it, it may cause more harm than benefit to your production. Now, let's examine if you are an ECG-ready company?,dream11-andhra-pradesh
