In this seventh edition of the Technical Conference of Flexography, it is intended to bring together employers or managers, technical staff, salespeople and other responsible companies that print and sell flexo printed media for client brands that use them in markets flexible packaging, advertising bags, labels, paperboard, wallpapers and other tangential uses, can access the most relevant new technologies and trends in the profession.
Attend this annual meeting, represents better strengthen the links you have with your own trade, through the opportunity to share the same inputs that facilitate being in possession of technological (or legislative) knowledge that allows to be more effective and competitive, at a time when both factors are the ones that make the difference.
From the Spanish Technical Flexographic Association, ATEF, we encourage you to register to this day, the professionals of the sector: the suppliers and especially the printers.
EFI PACKAGING SUITE: INTEGRATION, AUTOMATION AND PRODUCTIVITY
The EFI Suite represents an ongoing commitment to quality, industry standards, tactical principles and methods based on the Theory of Global Optimization (TGO) – A specialized business strategy, developed for the packaging and printing sector.
REQUIREMENTS OF INKS IN THE PRODUCTION OF COMPOSTABLE CONTAINERS
The paper will discuss the latest challenges posed by the European Union in relation to plastic packaging for 2030 and will clarify confusing concepts such as biodegradability, compostability, recyclability, bioplastics, etc. In addition, Standard 13432 will be addressed about the requirements of containers recoverable by composting and biodegradation, going into detail in all the requirements to be met by the inks in the printing of these compostable materials and the possible limitations in the tones and surface of Print.
A STRATEGIC VISION ON INNOVATION AND COMPETITIVENESS AGAINST THE NEW CHALLENGES OF THE FLEXOGRAPHIC INDUSTRY
Faced with the challenges facing our industry, innovation and technological development are key factors, but they are not the only ones. Managing talent, overcoming mediocrity, seeking excellence, differentiating our value proposition … all of these are issues that should be considered in our strategic plan as pillars of our competitiveness.
THE DIGITIZATION; THE ENGINE TO OPTIMIZE AND INTEGRATE FLEXIBLE PACKAGING MANUFACTURING PROCESSES
Digitization changes all areas of life and also existing business models. This increases the pressure on the flexible packaging manufacturing industry, but opens up new business opportunities at the same time. Industrial companies must significantly reduce time to market, improve flexibility massively and increase quality while reducing costs.
The launch of innovative production control tools that help improve efficiency is changing the way we manage plants through the data they generate. These new applications show the participation of companies in the promotion of technology, which will allow the implementation of smart factories, known as Industry 4.0.
Data management will allow you to be more efficient if you know the production processes and can better adapt to production needs, efficient ways to manage resources, flexible manufacturing, minimize stocks and save money.
New software developments, such as the Comexi Cloud, are the quickest and easiest way to analyze production and face the incoming challenges. Factories can control their data 24 hours a day, seven days a week and process them to facilitate optimal decision making.
