After a long journey at sea King Kong, known in the industry as the Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has come out of her shipping crate. As the riggers set her up, we can see she is going to be real comfortable in her new home at Associated Labels and Packaging, Kanada (as the Germans say).

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy and cheese packaging, snack foods packaging, dried fruits and nuts packaging, coffee and tea packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging, vitamins and supplements packaging.  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.

If you’d like more information on King Kong and all that she can do – please contact our Sales Department.

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).
