Apart from the many recent advances in label and packaging adhesives, the necessary tools and equipment to match these have been progressing too. Examples from the EU include the Fantastac SuperRoller that handles 75 meters of an industrial adhesive tape application, allowing for easy application without threading. A new press from Simply Cartons allows for color printing onto an APET surface, while Skanem’s smart labels send consumers directly to brand websites. Beardow Adams showcased its BAMFutura 50’s range of adhesive in packaging, offering a broad spectrum of hot and cold temperature resistance.
For those seeking a compact adhesive label printer, the new Dantex Graphics printer fits the bill, and AMS Ilumina has unveiled its thick card printer that handles materials up to 500 gsm. Advanced Labelling Systems has come up with a new design rotary labeler, and KBW is also offering a new labeling machine. Hamilton Adhesive Labels is now launching a color printer to match its labels, while CS Labels is directing innovation at the printing of stand-up pouches.
