a record year in brussels: brand owners are using smart labels to ensure product authenticity and value, while improving productivity and the customer experience.
This year, at the six big clubs of LabelexpoEurope 201 1 in Brussels, full of energy and enthusiasm, this is the most popular change after the economic struggle and uncertainty. Although the loss of the label industry is not as good as other industries, converters and suppliers have retained their judgment in the weeks leading up to the exhibition, hoping to gain a positive label Expo experience while expressing caution. But they don\'t have to worry. The industry plans to expand its technical base, from printing machines to tablets, from software to slitting machines, and I\'m buying everything. [ Slightly] Illustrations According to the organizers of the exhibition, this year, a total of 28,636 spectators from 18 countries participated in the exhibition. An increase of 18. More than 6% 2009. Attracted 550 exhibitors ( Up from 544 in 2009) Was the biggest event in history. Exhibitors should display new equipment and materials at each trade show. The European laboratory Expo, which began on the 28 th, was introduced by Avery Dennison and Gallus to the thinstream process, a method of cutting the film using a cold temperature with 12 micro-release liners, From there, there is a digital combination of new printing machines, more versatile molds, better performance inks, exquisite inspection systems, talented substrates, custom adhesives and technologies. Four days later, dozens of exhibitors reported at the end of the show that they collected strong leads, commitments and sales at the show site. Throughout the venue, placards of a large number of equipment were placed with the words \"for sale\", always a good sign. Upm raflatac chief: demand is shifting, in the keynote speech by Labelcxpo Europe, Vanhanen, president of UPM Raflatac, introduced the most recent one commissioned by the company Adhesive label demand in Western Europe and North America will continue to grow at a slower pace than in the previous 10 years, while demand in emerging markets in particular will increase. \"Self-consumption in developed markets in Europe and North America Labels will grow with the growth of packaged products.

Therefore, the growth rate of the industry is likely to remain at 1- 2% per year At the food and beverage end will enjoy the highest growth rate Part of using self-penetration \"The adhesive label is quite low,\" Vanhanen said . \". On a global scale Adhesive label will be in 4- 5% per year Vanhanen said 80% of this growth will come from emerging markets. This also reflects the shift of global economic forces to countries in Asia and Latin America. He stressed that the labeling industry must strive to find new business opportunities, especially in developed markets. \"Growth will not automatically turn into a secondary curve. The industry needs to continue to develop solutions for more professional applications. The self- \"Adhesive labels are the most common labeling method and all participants in the value chain need to continue to promote and develop products that take advantage of their strengths,\" Vanhanen continued . \". Another challenge that the industry needs to address is sustained raw material inflation. \"Consumer growth in emerging markets will continue to drive up raw material prices over the next decade, even if there may be some brief respite when the economy is uncertain. The best way to deal with inflation is for subsidiaries and printers to develop and commercialize thinner and better fitfor- Objective material structure and rapid utilization \"Development of recycling opportunities,\" Vanhanerii stressed . \". 2011 label industry global awards some of the leading companies and individuals in the label industry are recognized at the European label fair for their outstanding contribution to the industry, as the winners of this year\'s label Industry Global Awards have been unveiled The award is held in the event Lounge in Brussels for 550 viewers to celebrate and commend those who promote best practices in the label industry.

A new cutting technology called very Dennison ThinStream allows cutting labels with a 12 micron lining, which is the lowest half on the market at the moment. ThinStream technology also eliminates diestrikes, one of the industry\'s major quality companies. Thonicam\'s patented technology has been licensed by Gallus Group, which, according to Avery Dennison, has created the cold mold unit of the wound tissue to complete this advanced personalized technology until the emergence of a fine stream, cutting with a wire clamp below 23 microns is almost impossible. Traditional kiss When cutting, the mold can pass through the connector, which can cause operational and quality problems during conversion and distribution. During the cold mold process, peel the face block from the liner before cutting. Then the facial material suddenly cools down-22[degrees] C or lower, then cut with solid or flexible rotarydie. Then reorganize the material in a few milliseconds. The artometrics mold was used when the lab showed ThinStream, and the development of the technology was supported by the mold manufacturer. \"Liner is the top item on our innovation agenda,\" said Don Nolan, vice president of Avery Denison label and packaging materials group. \"We want to combine our extensive material manufacturing expertise with technology to enable us and our customers to further improve labeling performance while reducing line waste and providing environmental and cost-effective.
