Time to take a closer look at digital technology for direct-to-container printing?

Wednesday 16th November 2016 | Tagged as: Printing, Greg Mills, Digital technology

Author: Greg Mills

At the last Direct Container Print (DCP) conference in Dusseldorf last November, Douglas Hutt of SABMiller, who was participating in a panel discussion about direct-to-container printing, commented: “Digital (printing) won’t replace any of the analogue packaging formats; it will just complement it.” Although he did go on to say that it will provide “different, better… more efficient… more effective ways to manage your brand...” and may not be as far off the mark as Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, who remarked in 1943 that there would be “a world market for maybe five computers", the continuous evolution of digital technology, even in direct to container printing, is likely to prove Mr Hutt wrong.

Recycled plastic? Fantastic!

Wednesday 19th October 2016 | Tagged as: Plastics, Recycling

Author: Michael Grass

Patricia Dunn probably summed it up best in Rebels by Accident: “Nothing on this earth lasts forever. Except maybe plastic”. And while its durability, low cost and predominant use throughout the 20th century is enough to suggest that plastic was ‘fantastic’, the world has become a far more environmentally conscious place in the 21st century, prompting industries across the globe to rethink their green credentials (for more details on the role millennials are playing in this eco-shift, click here) and take a firmer grip on waste management – and the management and recycling of plastic is central to this.
