PACKAGING
Finishing technologies, including
matte and antiglare printing,
continue to become more popular
with our customers as they are
looking to leverage unique
shelf-appeal characteristics to win
share in the market. "
Travis Klug, Amcor Flexibles North America
The final finish on packaging will become increasingly
important moving forward as consumers eye high-quality
appearance.
A proliferation of SKUs in the cheese category in recent
years led Amcor to invest in technologies to support shorter
run times and a wider variety of products. These technologies
include expanded color gamut printing, which can reduce
changeover time on the printing press and increase efficiency,
leading to shorter lead times and great flexibility.
Amcor also offers ICE XP films that can downgauge
from heavier films. They can be used for products such as
mozzarella ball and loaves without sacrificing performance
characteristics, including puncture and abrasion resistance.
" Finishing technologies, including matte and antiglare
printing, continue to become more popular with our
customers as they are looking to leverage unique shelfappeal
characteristics to win share in the market, " Klug said.
" Amcor has invested in equipment that will support significant
growth of these technologies and drive the next generation of
differentiation for print technology, enabling brand owners to
bring their packaging to life on shelf. "
RESPONSIBLE MATERIALS
Harpak-ULMA Packaging, Taunton, Mass., is seeing a move
toward vacuum skin packaging, according to Carlo Bergonzi,
the company's tray sealing product manager. While this
technology currently has more of a foothold in Europe, it is
becoming more prevalent in the United States and provides
cheese products with increased shelf life.
Overall, the company's sustainability efforts are focused
on recycling plastic, reducing the amount of plastic
in products, using renewable materials and
decreasing carbon emissions throughout
the supply chain, Bergonzi said.
To meet these goals in its plastic
packaging products, Harpak-ULMA uses
a variety of technologies, including a
thermoformer that produces pre-formed
trays with minimal scrap, Bergonzi said.
These pre-formed trays in turn yield
denser shipments and reduce the overall
carbon footprint of manufacturing.
Harpak-ULMA also uses downgauging
technology for skin packs to use thinner
materials without causing deformation.
The thinner material also results in an
overall reduction of plastic use.
