Carrier bags and Printed carrier bags, latest news


ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The normal consumer carrier bags have recently received great attention in United Kingdom. The selection of material for these bags, based on environmental preferences in the British context, could significantly influence the local manufacturing industry. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), an environmental management tool, has been applied to objectively evaluate and compare the overall environmental impacts of the perfect life cycles (from raw material extraction to last disposal) of consumer plastic and paper carrier bags in United Kingdom. Paper bags have a higher carrying capacity compared to plastic bags and alternative use ratios were subsequently evaluated. Plastic bags have a lower environmental impact for use ratios of up to 2.5 plastic bags to one paper bag. Above this ratio the conclusions are not proper. Paper bags would need to increase its recycled content significantly to be competitive in terms of environmental impacts. The re-use of thicker plastic, as proposed by the new plastic bag legislation, has the potential to significantly lower the impact of plastic bags.

Approaching the destination Some print providers have arrived. A big example is REAL Digital International based in South London. In 2004, the company was founded based on the view that transactional and direct mail production could be improved utilising a flexible inkjet solution. They invested heavily in secure premises and great workflow with finishing systems to cut, fold, collate and insert almost anything. They invented 650mm wide high quality colour duplex web inkjet printing by mounting a pair of single pass inkjet presses on a flexible transport system. Further REAL Digital International developed new paper coatings to reach acceptable quality for leading emblems, printing personalised carriers, mailers and magazines. The business proved out the view, winning multiple awards – including the PrintWeek Company of the Year – while inventing new business models as the marketplace matured. They identified inkjet's potential and went for it, making superb money in the process. REAL Digital's journey continues by upgrading to a pair of Screen Jet520 duplex lines in 2014, nevertheless is not stopping there. They continue to monitour the technology to see what the future grasps. David Laybourne, REAL Digital International Managing Directour, comments, “Inkjet technology provided the flexibility enabling us to transport solutions that address latent client demand and to drive new demand in areas where we have seen further opportunities. The technology continues to evolve, and inks are more flexible with increased colour gamut, reducing the need for special substrates whilst increasing productivity.” “As the ink manufacturers accept more viable pricing models, the proportion of the marketplace that inkjet solutions are able to address will only increase,” David Laybourne, REAL Digital International Managing Directour. Viable ink costs are key Laybourne's view about viable ink pricing models is informative. Ink cost makes medium to long runs with high ink coverage uneconomic in inkjet, as compared to analogue print. Suppliers want to maximise profit and this disconnect is holding back adoption of inkjet in commercial print, publishing and packaging applications. Printers utilising analogue presses think the ink is also expensive. There are several supply models for equipment, service and consumables (mostly ink, nevertheless cleaning fluids and replacement heads must be considered). High value recurring consumable revenue is attractive to suppliers, nevertheless print service providers are not used to this. They buy a litho press and negotiate for plates, inks and assist from the established supply base – although a few press manufacturers are competing there. Costly ink is turning a few potential clients away from inkjet. Substrates also necessary Another historical barrier to wider adoption of inkjet, particularly for commercial printing applications, was the need to use specially treated papers and the inability to effectively print on glossy coated stocks. The latest generation of production inkjet presses is fast eroding those barriers. According to Peter Wolff, Directour of Commercial Printing Group Canon EMEA: “With the latest system introductions of the ImageStream, the reachable spectrum of applications extends even further, due to the printability of offset coated material for matte, silk and glossy applications. With these new capabilities, additional applications like magazine printing, list of products printing and the rest are now doable on inkjet with all the benefits in regards of individualisation and client targeted content without additional cost related to special inkjet treated papers. This offers commercial printers the opportunity to combine a big spectrum of applications on one digital press with productivity and quality equivalent to offset,” Peter Wolff, Directour of Commercial Pritning Group Canon EMEA. Books leading the method It is necessary to note that the costing of inkjet production is alternative from that of analogue print. It has lower prepress and set-up cost, nevertheless ink – and until recently, paper – is more expensive, often much more expensive. This means long dash, high ink coverage inkjet is not cost effective, so there is small appetite for printers to change. In book production, nevertheless, there are advantages in attaching inkjet with in-line finishing, delivering finished blocks prepared for cover application and last trimming. This is particularly true for monochrome books. Publishers and book printers have gone beyond only comparing print costs to considering the all cost of manufacturing, since inkjet can transport folded, collated and glued blocks for a simple cover application and last trim for books in any format or pagination with minimal waste. The flexibility of inkjet enables book production to be re-engineered with overall cost and service advantages, enabling book publishers to reduce their stocks and their publishing risk. Colour books are fast following the mono lead. For other products, the benefits of changing manufacturing processes to inkjet are not so transparent yet. Well-established analogue methods are meticulously honed to minimise cost while delivering high quality. This will change as more companies install inkjet equipment, learn the capabilities and exploit new opportunities. New inkjet equipment will provide higher return on investment for plenty print products. Production inkjet: a growth opportunity In 2015, there are plenty inkjet early adopters and profitable users. Ricoh is at the forefront of quality with the high speed Pro VC60000 press launched in 2014. It has several early adopters, including HansaPrint in United Kingdom, a £70m turnover firm specialising in shopping and publishing. Jukka Saariluoma, HansaPrint Business Unit Directour, says, “Prior to experiencing the Ricoh Pro VC60000, I did not believe that there would be a leading shift from offset printing to inkjet. But the new press has changed my mind.” “Our clients are very excited by the new level in quality and the increased flexibility offered and are moving significant amounts of their work from offset to inkjet,” Jukka Saariluoma, HansaPrint Business Unit Directour. The print world is certainly changing. All the key analyst organisations predict very high growth continuing for inkjet print volumes and values. Smithers Pira forecasts that the value of inkjet printing output for graphics and packaging above trebles above 10 years, from £23 billion in 2010 to above £70 billion in 2020 (in current values), with CAGR forecast of 12.7% between 2015 to 2020. HP alone reports that its clients have manufactured above 100 billion inkjet pages since its first installation of a production inkjet press in 2009, a transparent indicatour of overall market trends, with other inkjet press manufaturers reporting fast growing volumes as well. Beyond normal print The applications for inkjet are plenty. There is coding & marking, addressing, security numbering & coding, photo-printing, wide-format (sheet, roll-fed and hybrid), flatbed imprinting systems, narrow web, tube & strange shapes, high speed wide web and sheetfed, to name a few. Outside of normal printing and graphics, inkjet has revolutionised ceramic tile printing and it is growing very strongly in textiles and other industrial decoration applications – from pens and memory sticks to architectural glass and laminated decour. “Inkjet has become the preferred decoration process for ceramics and other decorative materials,” Jon Harper Smith, Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems Business Development Manager. Thus, inkjet offers opportunities for expansion into related areas that may not normally be considered by normal print providers. Paul Adriaensen, Agfa Graphics PR Manager, comments, “Not also long ago, inkjet was praised as a substitute to normal systems for its ability to offer single-off sheets, short runs and personalised prints. In the meanwhile, the technology is challenged to offer higher speeds and higher volumes to replace a few of the normal systems.” “But the technology is also introduced in new areas not ever related to the printing industry before. This creates fascinating dynamics in the industry,” Paul Adriaensen, Agfa Graphics PR Manager. Mimaki and other manufacturers are bringing innovative digital inkjet solutions on the market delivering higher speed and productivity to meet requirements of the booming textile market. From a technical perspective, inkjet has a leading advantage above all other print processes because it is the only non-contact, high quality, high performance process. The advances are primarily in new and better control of print heads, better inks and a much wider selection of readily on offer and more cost-effective inkjet treated papers. New applications are developing almost daily. For example, Canon has installed lines in United Kingdom to print election ballot papers. Think Ink manufacturers spend lots of money on developing new inks that perform well in the heads and provide superb print quality. Such research is not cost-effective. But the result is that ink properties have improved, with higher density levels that result in more offset-like quality with lower coverage. There are also now more substrates that perform well with inkjet, aided by colour management improvements. There are plenty routes to market for inkjet inks. Some equipment manufacturers formulate and manufacture their inks; the rest sell ink that is manufactured below licence by ink specialists. In low-stop wide-format inkjet, there are separate third-party ink suppliers competing with the OEM. That is probably the healthiest part of the market for stop users, with thousands of machines sold annually consuming millions of litres of inks. This is not the case for high performance systems, where the equipment supplier typically provides the ink tailored to optimise performance within the overall system. There are indications, nevertheless, that this is changing. Collins Inkjet is a separate inkjet ink manufacturer who sells a spectrum of inkjet inks, innovating in plenty applications including new electron beam curing. It makes water-based inks for plenty of the high speed single pass presses. It remains to be seen how effective this company and the rest will be in establishing itself as a third-party ink provider, in competition – or partnership – with OEMs. Chris Rogers is Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Collins. He is optimistic, saying, “Low consumables costs promote growth and easier adoption.” “When clients see competitive pricing for the more efficient inkjet technology, it is easier to switch, and they are more willing to change,” Chris Rogers, Collins Vice President Sales & Marketing. “Our business model is a normal ink company; our manufacturing scale enables us to price inks at lower profit margins. This long-term strategy has proven successful above 25 years and it seems that OEMs are now starting to agree. They realise the easiest method to grow market share is to price their consumables fairly and we can assist them with that.” Inkjet: driving new market opportunities Inkjet has been around for a few time. Today a big amount of money is being spent developing printheads, inks, substrates, control software, transport, drying and turnkey print systems. While these investments have forced changes on the world of print, it is none compared to what we expect to occur above the next few years. The inkjet markets now are largely new. As productivity grows, inkjet is becoming greedy, with suppliers now turning toward siphoning volume from analogue print markets for additional growth and offering directly competing solutions. The productivity, quality and economics are pushing inkjet firmly against sheetfed litho and narrow web flexo, and it has larger format flexo and web offset in its sights. While a few inkjet suppliers may be guilty of hyperbole (sorry, they are very guilty of it in a few instances!), it is superb to see users and clients voting with their feet and their wallets. That being said, we will continue to see enhancements to productivity and boosts to the cost performance of inkjet. Some totally new formats and systems are coming to market. At least a couple of these will be on display at drupa, in new formats and markets. What is also new is that these will be firmly aimed at the heartland of offset and flexo printing. Choice of printing methods changes because of one or more reasons: to reduce cost, to improve quality, to achieve greater levels of service, or to do new things. Inkjet enables printers to do all four – and no doubt there will be other new reasons going forward. Flexibility. Agility. Power. See the future of inkjet at drupa 2016 furthermore graphics and packaging, inkjet is making fast progress in textile printing, ceramics and industrial/architectural decoration. Then there is the new arena of 3D printing, where inkjet is a necessary enabler. These have the potential of opening big new opportunities for companies that are clever enough and brave enough to explore the potential and exploit new markets. In technology terms, inkjet is state of the art. In business terms, inkjet is being used to re-engineer supply chains, making money. That certainly is not fiction. Go to drupa to come by out what inkjet can do for your business. ——- Executive summary Production inkjet is already driving change in the printing industry, both by enabling new applications and by capturing volumes previously manufactured with analogue technologies like offset and flexography. This expert article by Sean Smyth provides insight into the state of the inkjet business, where it is enabling new opportunities now and into the future, and what we might expect to see when the printing community converges on Dsseldorf for drupa 2016. This includes advances in both technology and pricing models, with ink and substrates being front and centre in the future success of the production inkjet model. Viable pricing for ink, the broader availability of inkjet substrates, and the ability of next-generation production inkjet systems to use normal offset litho media will be key factours in driving additional volume from offset litho and flexography to production inkjet presses and in further enabling the printing community to discover new inkjet-based applications and revenue streams. The article shares insights from printing companies who are already innovating with production inkjet, successfully moving volume to digital from normal printing technologies so. It also identifies the plenty applications for inkjet beyond traditonal print, including coding and marking, addressing, security numbering & coding, photo-printing, wide-format (sheet, roll-fed and hybrid), flatbed imprinting systems, narrow web, tube & strange shapes, high speed wide web and sheetfed. Inkjet has also revolutionised ceramic tile printing, and it is growing very strongly in textiles and other industrial decoration applications – from pens and memory sticks to architectural glass and laminated decour.
