Advantages of bottomless paper labels

nowadays, consumers' attention to the impact of packaging on the environment can not be ignored. Market research also tells us that many enterprises in Europe and the UK have improved their awareness of environmental protection. They are constantly seeking greener production methods and ways to eliminate unnecessary waste. Many packaging companies increasingly prefer thinner face paper and thinner or even bottomless labels, because they help to reduce transportation volume and reduce carbon footprint. As the bottomless label technology can meet the dual requirements of enterprises for economy and environmental protection, it is not surprising that it is popular. Now we can see that the market demand for bottomless labels is growing

advantages of label without backing paper

the three parts of self-adhesive material include surface substrate + adhesive + backing paper. After the self-adhesive is pasted on the packaging to consider the compatibility and comprehensive performance, the mission of the backing paper is completed. In most cases, it is abandoned, which brings a lot of waste. In the packaging industry, retailers and regulators demand to reduce packaging waste. When end-user manufacturers are facing this unprecedented pressure, the introduction of bottomless paper labels has brought new hope to the industry

bottomless label, as the name suggests, is a self-adhesive label without a bottom paper. Bottomless labels do have obvious advantages. They can reduce waste. In addition, paperless labels can save costs in terms of storage, transportation and pasting. Because there is no bottom paper, the paper roll of the same size can hold more labels (more than 50% more than the ordinary paper roll), which can reduce the cost of a single label and reduce the paper change frequency. More labels per roll means lower storage and transportation weight, reduce label paper inventory, significantly reduce the waste of printing machines and packaging production lines, reduce the energy consumption of mobile waste, protect the environment and be more hygienic

application of label without bottom paper

canceling bottom paper can save a lot of production costs. To make bottomless self-adhesive, several problems need to be solved: the glue is not sticky before use, and becomes pressure-sensitive adhesive by heating or UV irradiation; With the change of the die-cutting method for bottomless labels, it is necessary to design new die-cutting equipment to adapt to bottomless labels; Similarly, the automatic labeling machine without backing paper labels also needs to be redesigned

with the gradual expansion of the bottomless label market, labeling equipment suppliers have also introduced equipment that can produce unlined labels to the market

the British etiquette label company recently launched a unlined labeling system. It is reported that their tt-pa Evo 150 can increase the number of labels per roll by 40%, thus reducing the cost of waste treatment, storage, transportation and other related links as well as the consumption of paper materials. Atwell also said that it pays great attention to the environmental friendly unlined label labeling technology, and has launched a series of printing and labeling equipment for the market. These equipment can reduce the cost of labels by 30% and increase the number of labels in a roll by 60%

the bottomless labeling equipment of RAVENWOOD packaging company located in Bury St Edmunds can realize the labeling of bottomless labels due to mechanical wear, and can also realize the flexible and free conversion of top and side labeling in different forms and positions for non automatic control professional experimenters, such as face, C-shaped surrounding and full wrapping, without replacing any parts. Paul Beamish, general manager of the company, said that he saw that the market demand for bottomless paper labels was growing on a large scale. Over the past four years, we have been providing solutions for bottomless labels, and have installed more than 500 labeling machines in the UK and Ireland. The benefits of the bottomless label labeling machine include faster production line speed, faster production conversion, cost savings and environmental protection

the bottomless label labeling system developed by session company is applicable to top label labeling and side label labeling. The label on the label roll is perforated and driven by a pair of conveyors. When the perforation point reaches the interface between the two conveyors, the first conveyor stops, and the second device accelerates to tear the label from the perforation, and the separated label is transmitted to the end of the conveyor for labeling

xact (lawtons group branch) and HM labeling company have also jointly developed the non liner system, and their target market is the UK. Arla food company in Denmark was the first to install the system. Three years ago, they installed a set of equipment for labeling cartons and pallets, which has saved 30% of the label cost since its operation, including the indirect cost saved due to the reduction of parking times, the reduction of inventory costs, the acceleration of label replacement and the reduction of maintenance costs

Hatfield quality measures in North America also applied bottomless paper label packaging to its 48 Ounce and 16 Ounce sausages in the spring of 2010. They use bottomless labels to replace the traditional top and bottom labeling methods, so as to reduce inventory risk, reduce packaging waste, and improve production efficiency. The environmental protection performance of the bottomless label is one of the main reasons for the company's interest. Michael bracrella, vice president of Hatfield quality measures, said: we hope to find a more environmentally friendly packaging form to support our sustainable development strategy

the bottleneck of bottomless labels

there is no doubt that bottomless labels are very attractive to businesses, especially those with economic minds. However, bottomless label technology also has its own defects. Richard Scott, UK marketing and product manager of Sato, a label equipment manufacturer, said: over the years, most of our machines have been able to carry out unlined production, and the market demand for this is also growing year by year. This demand is stable, but not very large, because users need to change their existing systems, and some users are not willing to do so. Because the price of the bottomless label system is higher than that of the traditional label system, the customer's investment is greater

in addition to the cost factor, the limited label shapes and types that can be produced by or operated on the bottomless label system are the obstacles to the adoption of this new technology. Peter haw of sessions company said: the shape of the label is limited, and the connecting parts between the labels must be kept with sufficient connection width to provide sufficient strength. For example, the diamond shaped label will become very difficult because the label tape of this shape does not have enough strength. Therefore, the most common shapes of labels in this process are ellipses, rectangles and squares

in addition, cancel the adhesive backing paper to make the adhesive label in the form of adhesive tape, which will inevitably cause the pressure-sensitive adhesive to contact the label surface. In order to protect the surface and prevent the bottomless paper labels from being pasted together, the manufacturer has adopted the method of coating silicone oil on the label surface, which has affected its impression of green environmental protection in people's mind
