The hottest self-adhesive label printing industry

  • Detail

China's self-adhesive label printing industry chain has matured and improved

since the 1990s, the self-adhesive label printing market that meets the requirements of automatic labeling has developed rapidly, driving the self-adhesive label printing market to industrialization. The self-adhesive label printing market has formed a relatively complete industrial chain and has a considerable industrial scale

1. Material supply

a group of self-adhesive label material suppliers represented by the world's largest self-adhesive label material suppliers, American Eli Dennison company and Japan lindco company, are optimistic about China's rapidly developing market. They have entered China since the 1990s, which has greatly promoted the rapid development of the market. Ellie entered China in 1994 and invested nearly US $30million in Kunshan to build a self-adhesive label material production base, with sales branches rapidly spreading across the country. Recently, the company invested more than US $30 million to build a factory in Guangzhou. In addition, in order to improve the processing technology of self-adhesive label printing in China, Allie also invested nearly US $2million to establish the first professional self-adhesive label printing and processing training center in the Asia Pacific region. Japan lindco invested 30million US dollars to build a production line of self-adhesive and release paper in Suzhou New Area in two phases in 2003. The second phase of the project produces 8million square meters of self-adhesive per month. In Longgang, Wenzhou and Zhongshan, Guangdong, some powerful private label material suppliers have also appeared. In these two places alone, there are more than 10 self-adhesive label material suppliers

2. Equipment supply

since 2002, the major foreign brand flexographic machine agents have shifted their sales focus to narrow width flexographic machines suitable for self-adhesive label printing. According to statistics, only dynamic performance can achieve high resolution. At present, the number of foreign flexo printing production lines (including wide width) and domestic self-developed unit flexo printing production lines introduced by China's packaging and printing enterprises has reached nearly 400 (including 320 imported ones, accounting for 80%; 80 domestic ones, accounting for 20%), and the imported equipment mainly comes from jeras, Andy Mai, Nilpeter, allied gear, wh, FK, etc. In 2002, 70% of the flexo printing machines newly installed in the domestic market were used for self-adhesive label printing. At the same time, some domestic traditional printing equipment manufacturers, such as Shanghai Ziguang, Shaanxi beiren, Qingzhou yigaofa, Xi'an Heiniu, beiren Fuji, have targeted the self-adhesive label printing market and developed narrow width flexographic printing machines with high quality

at the same time, well-known mainstream brand letterpress label printing machine suppliers have also set up offices and service centers in China, such as lindco, luotie, Wanxun, etc. The famous label printing equipment of sankl and Ko pack also has agents in China. More and more suppliers of auxiliary processing equipment (such as die cutting equipment, tool making, etc.) have also begun to set up offices or processing bases in large and medium-sized cities in China. Now, the post-processing problem of self-adhesive label printing manufacturers has been better solved. For example, in the past, the round pressing wheel used in flexographic printing machine. This project divides different materials into four categories: "brittle and firm", "sticky and fit", "smooth and round", "soft and elastic". Die cutting tools must be customized from foreign manufacturers, and now they can be purchased in Shanghai, Guangzhou and other places

3. Self adhesive label printing

a number of foreign-funded professional self-adhesive label printing enterprises entered this market in advance. These manufacturers have many years of professional experience in printing self-adhesive labels abroad, bringing foreign advanced printing and processing equipment, printing and processing technology and management experience into the domestic market. After several years of development, the annual output value of some foreign self-adhesive label printing plants has reached hundreds of millions of yuan. At present, this market is still attracting more foreign-funded printing enterprises. There are more than 20 foreign-funded label printing plants in Shanghai (including Suzhou). Secondly, large state-owned and private printing enterprises will also pay attention to this market. For example, Shenzhen Jinjia, jiaoguan, Guilin aoqun, Shanghai textile printing Li Feng, Shanghai concave convex, Shanghai People's printing No. 8 factory, Huzhou tianwai and other enterprises have added advanced flexographic printing equipment to participate in the competition in the self-adhesive label printing market. Self adhesive label printing has become a new economic growth point for these printing enterprises

the printing process of self-adhesive labels is becoming more and more mature.

with a number of powerful foreign label printing enterprises entering the Chinese market, advanced printing equipment and printing processing technology have also been introduced into China. The foreign self-adhesive label printing market started earlier than the domestic market. They introduced more mature equipment and experience into the country, and made a certain contribution to improving the domestic self-adhesive label printing technology. Nowadays, more and more self-adhesive label printing equipment suppliers enter China. The equipment and technical services they provide have improved the process level of domestic self-adhesive label printing enterprises to a certain extent

development of self-adhesive label printing

1 Flexo printing is the ideal way of label printing in the future

almost 80% of flexo printing machines in foreign developed countries are used to print self-adhesive labels. Because the unit flexographic press can be combined arbitrarily, it can print various types of labels, including short version and special labels, when the spare parts are complete. Flexographic printing is the ideal way to print labels in the self-adhesive label industry in the future

2. UV flexo printing is developing rapidly, and there is a trend to replace UV embossing

label printing requires bright colors. Because the color of UV flexo printing ink can be close to UV embossing ink, and the structure of flexo printing machine is simpler than embossing machine, foreign printing enterprises have adopted UV flexo printing instead of UV embossing to reduce costs

3. Combined printing will have a rapid development

combined printing machine can combine a variety of different printing methods on one printing machine to meet the requirements of different customers. This is also the most advanced label processing equipment we have seen in foreign exhibitions. Using the combined printing machine can not only improve the production efficiency and meet some special requirements, but also mark the following points for reference: the processing requirements of the label can avoid the waste of human and material resources

4. New materials and new processes are widely used

materials, processes and equipment are the three elements of label printing. Using new materials and new processes, various new labels can be processed on the combined printing machine. Multi layer labels used in the pharmaceutical industry, double-sided labels, film labels, electronic labels used in the cosmetics industry, in mold labels pasted on machine oil drums, all of which are smart labels and anti-counterfeiting labels completed under different environmental conditions. These labels are produced using new materials and new processes
