Following the success of Labelexpo Europe 2017, products such as Mouvent’s three new label printers and technologies such as FFEI’s new High Laydown have been revealed to the industry. A review of the four-day event is included in this issue, featuring highlights from Epson, BST, Dantex and more.
Additionally, we have a look at how production waste can be more valuable than currently perceived — creating larger returns from the sale of recycled material — and how ‘going green’, adopting energy efficient practices and lowering a carbon footprint can create big savings in manufacturing firms.
Also, we take a look at the new rising trend in flexible packaging, shrink sleeve solutions, which creates premium finishes on all product types, and we investigate solutions that safeguard metal components and protect against corrosion.
