Man Takes Photo by Press, What Happens Next Will Never Blow Your Mind

Because nothing happened. The only remarkable thing that happened today, was that dude in the background (on top of our new press King Kong) hummed Alanis Morissette all day, it was like riding an emotional rollercoaster.

So King Kong, our new Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, gets bigger and bigger every day. Our excitement grows as we know this press is a game changer. We’ll be able to increase our flexible packaging printing capacity, offer wider web printing and laminating, while super serving our new and existing customers with a flexible packaging printing press that is at the top of the class.

Labels and Flexible Packaging play a huge role in building and distinguishing a brand, if you are new to this world, we’re here to help you out from start to finish. If you know all there is to know about flexible packaging printing – then we don’t need to tell you why King Kong is making us feel like whipping our hair around like Alanis.

Regardless, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to know more about labels, digital printing, flexible packaging printing, or even label application and packaging equipment.

King Kong is at Sea

April 10, 2015

King_King_ShipAssociated Labels made a trip to Germany to check out its 52″ MIRAFLEX AM named King Kong. King Kong is now at sea, Canada bound aboard the MSC LEIGH Vessel (above) and the “Night Before Christmas” suspense is killing us! We can hardly sleep – we just want it to be here.

We’ve been tracking King Kong online and watching the little ship arrow move not nearly fast enough on this Live Ship Map. The anticipation is worse than falling asleep, in a middle seat, on a long flight – then waking up and realizing what felt like a long nap was only 5 minutes into a 12 hour flight.

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Quality demands on flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy/cheese, snack foods, dried fruits and nuts, coffee and tea, pharmaceuticals, vitamins and supplements.  Transport packaging and over wraps for beverage bottles and cans or packaging of sanitary products have become more and more sophisticated too. Flexible packaging for the industrial sector such as building materials, chemical products or pet food require a high-quality print.

Flexible Packaging and Stand-up Pouch manufacturing has taken an innovative turn to mirror the change in consumer lifestyle. Conventional and rigid packaging has been replaced by more intricate designs that combine fresh credentials. Recent stand-up pouch product launches in such areas as pet food, soups and stews, sauces, baby food, snack food, fresh-cut produce, ready-to-eat meals, noncarbonated beverages, lawn and garden products, and household goods will contribute to further growth. Growth in demand for pouches is also a function of economics, as the lighter weight packages can vastly reduce both production and transport costs.

Check out our Stand Up Pouch Styles Guide and learn about the following: Doyen Style Gusset (Rounded Bottom) Stand Up Pouch, K Skirt Style Gusset Stand Up Pouch, Plough Style Gusset Stand Up Pouch, 2 Side Seal Bag (Folded Bottom), and 3 Side Seal Bag (Reinforced Bottom).

We’re back from Germany, flipping through our phones filled with pics of beer, sausage, sauerkraut and a whole lot of machines. We barely survived a white knuckled rip down the autobahn en route to the Windmoeller & Hoelscher plant in Lengerich to meet our brand new 52″ MIRAFLEX AM press baby. We are proud to announce, it was love at first sight! She is big, beautiful and now named: King Kong.

So the Germans…  they love rules more than soccer and being on time is considered a virtue.  That in mind, we can safely say our massive 52″ MIRAFLEX AM printing press will punctually arrive in Vancouver May 2015. We’re already planning on playing Kraftwerk at the baby shower.

Pouches, primarily of a stand-up pouch construction, will offer significant growth opportunities. Recent stand-up pouch product launches in such areas as pet food, soups and stews, sauces, baby food, snack food, fresh-cut produce, ready-to-eat meals, noncarbonated beverages, lawn and garden products, and household goods will contribute to further growth.
