Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

According to the company, these systems allow cigarette and tobacco manufacturers to perform quality checks at each production stage to ensure product packaging fully complies with regulations.

EyeC’s health warning inspection tool (HWIT) is designed to enable companies to create a merged file with all compliant health warnings, which will serve as a reference during inspections.

The tool automatically enables manufacturers to assign and combine health warnings from Health Warning Document Libraries with their artwork files.

EyeC Proofiler product manager Oliver Peitzner said: “With the EyeC inspection systems and the EyeC HWIT, tobacco manufacturers can now easily automate their controls and avoid product recalls.

“They no longer have to perform tedious and complicated manual checks of health warnings.”

“They no longer have to perform tedious and complicated manual checks of health warnings. Our first product demonstrations have been a real success. The need for automation and risk reduction has never been so high in the tobacco industry.”

Manufacturers can also use the EyeC Proofiler Graphic to check print files automatically at pre-press, while the EyeC Proofiler controls printed samples during and after printing.

The company noted that its solutions can detect all items automatically, including text, graphics, 1D and 2D codes, health warnings, and their rotations in a single inspection cycle.

Based in Hamburg, Germany, the company offers file-to-file comparison for artwork revision control and prepress applications, as well as print-to-file inspection systems for press sample testing. It also provides print quality control for folding cartons, labels, leaflets, or flexible packaging.
