Convenient Peel and Reclose Packages Created with Laser Scoring

Laser processing is the latest technological advancement in the flexible packaging industry. In previous years, packaging companies have mechanically die cut or scored packages to create easy open and breathable features. But companies are now providing premier laser converting services that outperform and outsell mechanical methods.

International Converting Exhibitions April 2013

The ICE USA exhibition was held last week in Orlando Fl, featured vendor exhibits and technical sessions sponsored by AIMCAL.  The exhibits presented machinery, technical information and services that are important to the converting process.
The exhibitors in the following categories are of specific interest to the Coating process:
Base Materials                                 Flexographic / Rotogravure Printing
Extrusion Coating                             Coating and Laminating
Drying / Curing / Moisturizing            (Pre-)Treatment
Inspection, Test and Measurement    Toll Coating
Machine Upgrades & Retrofits
 
My observations after viewing coating exhibits and listening to technical presentations are :
         • Slot die is continuing to be more widely used. The coating hardware is available from several vendors with excellent quality and reasonable costs. Computer software programs are being used to customize design for improved quality and productivity.
         • The On-line defect surface inspection technology instruments are improving in ability to detect and classify a much wider range of defects at production line speeds. They are becoming more cost effective.
         • Replacing a standard coating station with Cartridge coaters, permits a very rapid change of coating methods, 10-15 minutes, Replacing coaters in standard coating stations may not be possible or can take 1-2 hours This gives the ability to use the best coating methods and to increase the range of products that cam be manufactured.
         • The machining uniformity of the rolls used is improving which results in better uniformity and performance. There are several types of rubber materials that can be used in rubber roll; thereby improving quality and performance.
 
         • Automation of surface treatment control systems is increasing and leads to improved uniformity and reproducibility of surface treatment systems.
         • Toll coaters have several coating methods available, so that they can coat a range of coating product parameters.
         • Automation technology is available for of all phases of the converting process.

USED MACHINERY MARKETPLACE FOR PLASTICS AND TEXTILE

In MARKETPLACE USED MACHINERY, does not charge any commission for the sale of its machinery.

The objective of this platform is to connect buyers and sellers of equipment, accessories or parts of sectors, PLASTICS and TEXTILES. Our intervention is limited to get contacts so you can sell or buy.

The cost for the buyer is 0 € only need to be registered to contact the sellers.

Sellers (subscribers) pay per ad from € 1 per month per ad, the minimum time remained of any advertisement in Marketplace is 6 months, at a cost of 6 €.

Our mission is to be able to sell anything that is not needed and also get an extra source of funding.

Marketplace Used Machinery, born as a result of the experience gained by Fernando Rodenas on the sale of equipment, not used by the company RODENAS AND RIVERA SA

In 2010 due to the crisis, RODENAS AND RIVERA SA shutdown of its facilities, and Fernando Rodenas has been selling these used internet.

The experience has been very positive, we sold equity machinery for over 2 and a half million Euros for it using different tools that have allowed us to contact thousands of potential buyers.

This experience is what Marketplace offers its users, promoting the equipment, accessories or parts here announced, in our platform among the thousands of companies we have in our extensive database.

Thank you very much,
Fernando Rodenas

CO2 released from burning fuel today goes back into new fuels tomorrow

The search for ways to use megatons of carbon dioxide that may be removed from industrial smokestacks during efforts to curb global warming has led to a process for converting that major greenhouse gas back into the fuel that released it in the first place. Research on the project was a topic here today at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.
