JK Labels’ High-End Storage Facility: One of Many Success Factors

The finesse of the label manufacturers come with a lot of factors including the quality of their storage facilities. The dies, blocks and inks used for printing also need to be stored in high-end facilities to avoid a messy printing. As an ISO certified sticker manufacturer, JK labels has separate storage facility for stickers, dies, blocks, inks and spare parts.

World-class storage for face stocks

JK labels has a vast storage facility for variety of face stocks.  We know what happens if the labels do not fix properly on a product. Such instances occur due to reasons like- use of low quality adhesives in the sticker labels; and improper storage that leads to loss of adhesiveness.  Well-maintained storage facility with controlled temperature ensures that the quality of the face stock is maintained and their non-ooze quality is preserved.

Scientific storage for dies, blocks and inks

Proper storage of dies and blocks not only adds to the quality of printing, but also saves a lot of time. At JK labels, they are stored in the best conditions, and are systematically numbered.  The inks are  stored at an optimum temperature, in a separate room. This ensures that their viscosity is maintained to deliver well-printed self adhesive labels.

Spare parts to reduce machine downtime

In order to minimize the machine downtime, it is important that the manufacturing units have enough back up of spare parts. JK labels’ storage facility includes a separate section that contains spare parts which can be used for six to seven years.

Well, with JK labels the customers never hear the excuses of run-out face stocks, awaited machine repairs or malfunctioning of the inks, dies and blocks.

UV Curing Inks and its advantages

A variety of inks are used in the label printing industry today. Few examples are ink/water balance, fountain solutions, heat-set, cold-set and energy curable inks. UV cured ink is a completely solid system that is dried using photochemical processes.  Inks that are made from fluid polymers and monomers are exposed to high intensity ultraviolet light in a reactor. The exposure to UV light releases the free radicals and causes polymerization of the substance and a dry ink film containing the pigment is left behind. The applications of UV cured inks go beyond printed labels. These inks are used in electronics, automobile glass and plastic decorations and many more areas. Labels Manufacturers in India have been using UV cured inks in speciality printing like liquid cartons, flexographic printing and cosmetic packaging.

The advantages of UV cured inks

The first advantage of these inks is that they are very easy to handle, for the simple reason that the ink is completely dry. The dry ink has many advantages like trouble free operation in the printing machine and there is no threat of ink clogging. The UV ink also does not dry on screen and this makes it possible for printers to run for extended periods of time and achieve very high production throughput.

Absence of any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) makes the ink more environmentally friendly as well. When compared to heat-set inks, the UV cured inks have no toxic solvents and thus no gaseous emissions.

The colour value of the UV inks is also excellent. Most UV inks range from being transparent to translucent. This higher degree of transparency in inks translates to a very clean colour gamut. This makes such inks perfect for processes requiring four or more colour processes graphic printing.

These advantages of UV inks especially enable printing of sophisticated and highly detailed bottle labels and self adhesive labels. UV inks are a blessing to Label Manufacturers allowing them to print high quality tags in larger numbers within shorter periods of time.

What is Flexographic Printing?

Flexographic printing or flexography is a process that utilizes a flexible relief plate in the printer. These plates are often made of rubber or plastic. Label manufacturers use flexographic printing for printing labels on plastic, foil, paper, metallic films and other forms of substrates used in packaging industry. Among other types of substrates, flexography is primarily used to produce printed labels on non-porous substrates like plastic used in food packaging. This is why flexographic printing is synonymous with plastic printing.

The Flexographic printing process

The flexographic printing process involves the substrate being fed into the printer in roll form. The substrate then moves through different print units that only prints a single colour. The various tones and shades of colours are achieved through processes similar to that in lithographic printers where the basic shades of ink- magenta, cyan, yellow and black are overlaid.

Four basic operations are involved in a flexographic printing process: image preparation, plate-making, printing and finishing. Image preparation is where an electronic copy of the art is supplied by the customer. It is assembled onto the computer through special software and simple proof is prepared before the final printing is done. Plate-making process in flexographic printing is similar to that in other printers. It is just that the relief printer is made out of flexible material so that it can be attached to a cylindrical roller for ink application. Flexographic printing for self-adhesive labels makes more and more use of UV cured inks as they are less toxic and much easier to handle as compared to heat-cured inks. The final stage of flexography is the finishing. Here processes like cutting, folding, coating and binding etc. may be carried out. Flexography is a boon for printing bottle labelsand has found extensive usage in sticker labels meant for food packaging.

JK labels’ infrastructure includes the seven-colour UV flexographic label manufacturing machine- Gallus EM 280, manufactured by world’s best manufacturer of label printing machines, Gallus. Visit www.jklabels.com to know more about the printing service offered by JK Labels.

Rising Trends in Cosmetic and Healthcare Product labels

Plain and simple labels for the soaps and lotions used two decades back are now well and truly history. Today the labels of FMCG products are perhaps the most advanced in terms of technology and diverse in terms of materials used. It is because printed labels play a very important role in developing an attractive packaging of a product, something that can entice the consumer into trying the product out. Today a large variety of sticker labels, self adhesive labels and transparent labels are being used in the packaging of the FMCG products.

Among the rising trends, transparent labels are perhaps the most widely used today. Most transparent labels are made out of polypropylene, polyethylene and polyester. These transparent labels enable the very innovative form of packaging where the insides of the packaging are visible to the buyer. They are most frequently used together with transparent packaging bottles for products like shower gels, shampoos and other liquid products. Other products like tubes and bottles that are squeezed several times have seen increased use of squeezable self adhesive labels. These labels are usually laminated and moisture resistant so that they withstand the rough handling on the surface. The adhesive of the products also needs to be stronger than the ordinary.

Embossed labels, ‘soft touch’  sticker labels and screen printed labels for added texture are some other new trends in label manufacturing. Embossed labels are used mostly on bottles that are likely to be picked up by the consumer before buying. The embossed logo of the product can give a nice feel to the consumer and persuade him/her to try the product out. The same can be said about ‘soft touch and textured labels. The labels can indeed make the first time buyer to try the product, just because its label feels good in his/her hands.
