SANDON GLOBAL LAUNCHES NEW OVER VARNISHING SLEEVE SYSTEM

April 2016. Sandon Global Engineering has developed a revolutionary new over varnishing system for two-piece can making designed to increase efficiency and profitability through the use of light weight, sleeve technology as an alternative to gravure.
The new GravLite sleeve has been developed to replace heavy and cumbersome gravure cylinders that on average, can weigh up to 24 kilos each and take up to 45 minutes for changeovers. The down-times associated with this traditional process for applying decorative or protective coatings means lower production and profitability. The innovative, patent pending, GravLite system from Sandon offers a sleeve design weighing only 3 kilos enabling rapid change-overs of approximately one to three minutes allowing users to modify coating parameters quickly and efficiently.

Variable Printing on Ball lines gives new Marketing Options


Newly developed Dynamark™ technology can be integrated in the existing printing process for all sizes of steel and aluminum can. It enables up to 24 different monochromatic graphic elements to be added to a defined vacant area of, or supplemental to, the basic design. Thus, logos, icons or individualized messages can be incorporated into the can appearance. Dynamark™ allows variability in the graphic design at normal production speed.
In Europe, Dynamark™ technology is already available in Ball's plants in Weissenthurm (Germany), Oss (Netherlands), Belgrade (Serbia) and Radomsko (Poland). Other plants will follow. Go to Ball website
