KYMC Project Sharing
September 19, 2019 | Daywey Chen
At KYMC we found that bigger doesn’t mean better. Bigger company may have the economy of scale when it comes to mass orders. However, they often lack the flexibility of their smaller competitors. From the many printing and packaging solution providers that we have worked with. We found that having the right equipment is always a key factor to success. Drawing upon an analogy, are you using a knife to fight against a rifle? Or are you using a rifle to go against a rifle?
The Advent of the Flexible Electronics Market
May 28, 2019 | 陳岱蔚

The industry application for printed flexible electronic spans across many sectors. Sectors including automotive, logistics, wearable devices, healthcare, commercial display, consumer electronics, gaming, education, and packaging. These sectors have adopted the printing methodologies to develop HF & UHF RFID tags, functional substrates, flexible OLED lighting, flexible HMI panels and flexible sensors.

How printers from different parts of the world are treating VOCs emission?
December 13, 2018 | Daywey Chen
The action trend taken to reduce the VOCs emission by printers across the globe varies depending on factors such as the regulation intensity of the region, the technology advancement of the region, the environmental consciousness level of the demographics. In some parts of the world, not much attention is being placed into VOCs emission reduction. In some parts of the world, aggressive measures are taking place. In general, there are three ways to treat VOCs. 1. Targeting the issue from the source (raw materials), for instance changing from solvent inks to water-based inks 2. Targeting the issue by adopting a more environmentally friendly printing process, for instance changing from rotogravure process to flexographic process. 3. To target the issue by installing VOC converting or recycling equipment.
How to Choose a Flexographic Printing Plate
October 5, 2018 | Dr. Dieter Niederstadt

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).

Case Study: How controlling of the water based ink temperature could eliminate ink foams from developing at the containment blade
February 27, 2018 | Ivan Lin
During printing as air travels back into the after the ink transfer onto the printing plate, if the blade pressure to anilox roller is too high, this will prevent the air and ink from reentering into the chamber. This will cause an imbalance of air and ink flow, leading to foam generation and buildup at the back blade.
The adoption of Industry 4.0 projects could lead to a 30% to 50 % reduction machine downtime.

In the printing and converting industry, one of the Industry 4.0 ideas is the communication between the different parts of the printing and converting process, enabling companies to utilize the information gathered to produce valuable actionable items in its production process, customer services, inventory management, and supplier management.
