It’s all about the application! Now, there is a better way to produce window packaging, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and easy-tear stripes on the packaging. By better, we mean greater flexibility, greater accuracy, faster, less waste, and less maintenance. KYMC is working with laser solution providers to provide our customers with the capability to meet the market application needs in a better way.
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?
The flexo or flexographic printing press is used commonly in the food packaging industry. The flexo or flexographic press is commonly associated with the plastic industry as many of the food packaging products use plastics. Besides the food packaging industry, the flexo printing press is also associated with industries including paper bags, carton and cardboard boxes, medical packaging, sanitary product labels, and the diaper industry. In recent years the flexo printing press is also found in the process for printed electronics manufacturing such as RFID, OLED lighting, functional substrates, circuit boards, and sensors.
According to Mordor Intelligence market report, the corrugated board packaging market was valued at USD 262.61 billion in 2019, and it is expected to reach USD 339.95 billion by 2025, providing a CAGR of 4.41% over the next 5 years.

Last week, KYMC held an open house in the Philippines, where a seminar at the hotel was held in conjunction with a press demonstration at our client’s factory. The seminar was organized into two sections, with the first section focusing on environmental topics and industry trends. The second section focused on KYMC’s capabilities to support our customers through case studies sharing. How KYMC supported public traded companies to cut cost and increase production efficiencies to remain competitive on the market. How KYMC worked with our customers even long before the purchase of the machines to ensure the customers need was addressed and can be fulfilled...
This week KYMC invited Asahi Kasei to share about the factors to consider when choosing a flexographic printing plate. To draw a case study demonstrating that choosing the right plate could impact the production efficiencies in terms of printing speed and machine downtime significantly: as much as 53% in overall equipment efficiency(OEE).
