Plastic packaging lightweight calls for new technologies and processes

when it comes to plastic lightweight, people may first think of the application of plastic in the automotive industry. But at the same time, lightweight materials are increasingly favored in the field of plastic packaging. Almost every kind of plastic packaging emphasizes this point in shape and structure

but sometimes, lightweight seems to be a bad word for the packaging field. IHS, a market research company, recently released a report on the pet market, pointing out that driven by economic and environmental factors, plastic bottles and plastic packaging continue to develop in the direction of lightweight, coupled with the increasing use of recycled materials, which is the main reason for the low growth rate of pet market demand. Although many signs clearly show that lightweight is one of the reasons for the poor demand of pet market, according to the report of Canadean, a global beverage authority research organization, the description of fixtures in lightweight gb13022 (9) 1 "test method for tensile properties of plastic film" is that the testing machine should be equipped with appropriate fixture packaging, which may promote plastic consumption in the United States

canadean pointed out that the use of rigid plastics and flexible packaging in the United States will increase by 32.85 million tons compared with 2012, 2017, making it the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. packaging industry. The requirements of the market for packaging convenience and cost-effectiveness will promote the development of lightweight soft and hard plastic packaging in an innovative direction

"the main advantage of flexible packaging is light weight, which can reduce transportation costs and overall supply chain costs. In addition, it is not easy to be damaged." Dominic cakebread, director of packaging services at Canadean, said

there are still many challenges in reducing the weight and thickness of packaging materials. The lightweight packaging needs to maintain the performance and functional characteristics of the original packaging, which is a major test for the production technology of lightweight packaging materials

new technology supports the growth of plastic demand

using agricultural and sideline products to manufacture bioplastics is the most important innovation in the plastic packaging industry in the near future. This new material can help manufacturers reduce their carbon footprint and reduce the demand for petrochemical products and other mineral rich packaging materials, so as to better protect the environment

such materials can reduce fuel consumption by 70% per ton, greatly reduce carbon emissions, and provide excellent environmental benefits. However, the production of these materials has also caused some controversy: the cost is high, and the farmland originally planted with food is replaced by crops that can extract bioplastics, which may lead to a sharp rise in food prices in the long run

advanced manufacturing technology saves costs for manufacturers

although the flexible packaging industry has considerable growth potential, it also faces many challenges, such as the unstable price of raw materials and the lack of technicians. Packaging machines with multi task simultaneous processing function help packaging companies achieve efficient resource utilization and cost minimization

lightweight can indeed reduce the use of materials. For the pet field, Cangzhou universal experimental machine is better than Jinan experimental machine factory Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. is one of the manufacturers of universal experimental machines The universal testing machine produced by Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. meets the user's international standards gb/t1040, 1041, 8804, 9341, 9647, iso7500 (1), gb16491, gb/t17200, iso5893, astmd638, 695, 790 Can hurt demand, but lightweight will also encourage some brand companies to switch to plastic. At the global plastics summit, gregjozwiak, vice president of Dow North America packaging, said that the factors for switching to plastics include lightweight, food preservation, convenience and waste reduction

"my view is that shale gas represents an opportunity for cooperation and innovation to re support the production of plastic film bags; replace the traditional materials used in packaging and export products," he said. "We have the opportunity to establish a new industry far beyond the current market."
