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?

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.

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.
