    • INDIAN PRINITING INDUSTRY OVERVIEW "Print - It‟s everywhere! It‟s on your coffee table; in your freezer; on the bumper of your car. It can be found on your walls, your doorstep, and on your clothes. It‟s on your mail, in your wallet, and most often in your hands." The Indian Printing Industry, growing at a rate of 12% per annum, comprises more than 250,000 big, small and medium printers. The current annual turnover of the industry is more than INR 50,000 crores (USD 11 Billion). The industry has undergone a revolutionary change in the last 15 years. In 1990, India initiated a process of reforms aimed at shedding protectionism and embracing liberalization of the economy. Privatization was initiated with the aim of integrating the Indian economy with the world economy. This change opened the doors for the Indian Print Industry to modernize, by investing in the latest of technology and machinery. In recent years, the printing industry in India has seen record levels of growth, owing to liberalized regimes, globalization and progress in automation. The industry has grown leaps and bounds due to the latest technology and machinery, quality standards and production capacities. The printing industry in India is slowly progressing from the heavy machinery using industry to a more software-centric business. The Indian printers are today equipped with the latest computer controlled printing machines and flow lines for binding, while state-of-the-art digital technologies are used in pre-press. UV digital printing and inkjet technology are also on the rise in India. The advent of global brands, rising consumerism and growth of the pharmaceutical industry have seen an increase in the scope for package printing. Giving an optimistic outlook of the industry, the package printing sector is growing at the annual rate of 17 percent, commercial printing at a rate of 10-12 percent and digital printing at robust 30 percent. The digital printing industry is seeing significant transformations with new technologies & applications providing cost-effective and customized solutions. For the foreseeable future, offset and digital will not only co-exist, but will also complement each other- with offset taking the medium-to-longer jobs and digital performing on short-to-medium run lengths. The booming Indian economy, increasing consumerism, entry of global brands in the country and opening of the sector to foreign investors are bound to offer growth opportunities to the industry. 5

    • PRODUCTION PROCESS OF POUCHES 1.) PRODUCTION OF TRANSPARENT PLASTIC SHEETS: MACHINERY: Polypropylene Machine BOUGHT FROM: Konark Machines, Ahmedabad PURCHASED IN: 2008 RAW MATERIAL: Granules (Polypropylene, Homopolymer) SUPPLIER: Reliance Polymer The process of production of plastic pouches starts with manufacturing transparent plastic sheets from the granules, which are made up of Polypropylene/Homopolymer. This is a raw material for AARPEE PACKAGING supplied by RELIANCE POLYMER, Jamnagar. The machine that is used for production of transparent plastic sheet is PP Machine (Polypropylene Machine). AARPEE PACKAGING had bought this machinery from KONARK, Ahmedabad. This machinery is 5-6 years old. This process is known as BLOWN FILM PROCESS. The detailed process is described below: 25
    • PP MACHINE Blown Film Plastic bags and sacks are made by the Blown Film process – a form of Film Extrusion. Blown film is created when the molten plastic material (or melt) is extruded through a ring-shaped die to form a continuous tube of plastic which is simultaneously inflated with air to form a plastic bubble. The bubble must be maintained at a constant pressure throughout the production run. The bubble is carried through variable speed rollers to the point where it reaches the required size and is cooled by air to convert it into a solid film tube of the desired thickness or gauge. The tubing is then guided by pinch rolls to become „Lay Flat‟ film which is wound, slit and trimmed automatically before being converted into a wide range of film and bag products – often involving printing and sealing. 26
    • The Process Plastic melt is extruded through an annular slit die, usually vertically, to form a thin walled tube. Air is introduced via a hole in the centre of the die to blow up the tube like a balloon. Mounted on top of the die, a high-speed air ring blows onto the hot film to cool it. The tube of film then continues upwards, continually cooling, until it passes through nip rolls where the tube is flattened to create what is known as a ' lay-flat' tube of film. This lay-flat or collapsed tube is then taken back down the extrusion ' tower' via more rollers. On higher output lines, the air inside the bubble is also exchanged. This is known as IBS (Internal Bubble Cooling). The lay-flat film is then either kept as such or the edges of the lay-flat are slit off to produce two flat film sheets and wound up onto reels. If kept as lay-flat, the tube of film is made into bags by sealing across the width of film and cutting or perforating to make each bag. This is done either in line with the blown film process or at a later stage. Typically, the expansion ratio between die and blown tube of film would be 1.5 to 4 times the die diameter. The drawdown between the melt wall thickness and the cooled film thickness occurs in both radial and longitudinal directions and is easily controlled by changing the volume of air inside the bubble and by altering the haul off speed. This gives blown film a better balance of properties than traditional cast or extruded film which is drawn down along the extrusion direction only. 27

    • 2.) GRAVURE PRINTING (PRINT ON PAPER AND PLASTIC). MACHINERY: Gravure BOUGHT FROM: Precision Gravure Pvt. Ltd. PURCHASED IN: 2009 Gravure printing is an example of intaglio printing. It uses a depressed or sunken surface for the image. The image areas consist of honey comb shaped cells or wells that are etched or engraved into a copper cylinder. The unetched areas of the cylinder represent the non-image or unprinted areas. The cylinder rotates in a bath of ink called the ink pan. As the cylinder turns, the excess ink is wiped off the cylinder by a flexible steel doctor blade. The ink remaining in the recessed cells forms the image by direct transfer to the substrate (paper or other material) as it passes between the plate cylinder and the impression cylinder. Gravure printing is characteristically used for long run, high quality printing producing a sharp, fine image. Additionally, the gravure cylinder has a long service life and will yield a very large number of impressions without degradation. GRAVURE MACHINE 30
    • GRAVURE CYLINDER Different gravure cylinders are used for different colours. The gravure machine at AARPEE Packaging has capacity of using maximum 6 different colours in an image. One cylinder has a life of 1 and a half year. The major unit operations in a gravure printing operation are: o o o o Image preparation Cylinder preparation Printing Finishing 31
    • Gravure Inks - Solvent Based, Water Based Gravure inks are fluid inks with a very low viscosity that allows them to be drawn into the engraved cells in the cylinder then transferred onto the substrate. In order to dry the ink and drive off the solvents or water, which essentially replaces most of the solvent, the paper is run through Gas fired or electric fired driers. The ink will dry before the paper reaches the next printing station on the press. This is necessary because wet inks cannot be overprinted without smearing and smudging. Therefore, high volume air dryers are placed after each printing station. The solvent-laden air from the dryers is passed through either a solvent recovery system or solvent vapor incinerator. A typical recovery system uses beds of activated carbon to absorb the solvent. Saturated beds are regenerated by steam. The solvent laden steam is then condensed and the water and solvent separate by gravity. Greater than 95 percent of the ink solvents can be recovered using this process (Buonicore). The solvents can either be reused or destroyed by incineration. Water based inks, especially used for packaging and product gravure, require a higher temperature and longer drier exposure time in order to drive off the water and lower vapor pressure constituents. As mentioned subsequent sections, Flexo and Gravure inks are very similar and the constituents are essentially the same. Again, a pollution control device may be needed. Gravure Press Design and Equipment Web-fed gravure presses account for almost all publication, packaging, and product gravure printing. These presses are generally custom manufactured machines designed for a specific range of products. The typical press is highly automated and consists of multiple print units. The printing mechanism in a rotogravure press consists of a gravure cylinder and a smaller, rubber clad impression cylinder. Other types of gravure presses in commercial use today are sheet-fed, intaglio plate, and offset gravure. These types of presses are used primarily for special printing applications. 32

    • Diagram showing gravure printing The gravure cylinders vary in size according to the engraving to be done on them Diagram showing gravure printing 34
    • Cutting and finishing: After the printing is done, the printed plastic sheet/paper roll is then moved to the slitting machine. 100-150 metres of printed plastic/paper roll is produced in one minute. In the cutting machine the final product is given finishing as shown in the picture below. SLITTING MACHINE 35
    • Applications: Typical gravure printed products include: o o o o o o o Food packaging Wall paper Wrapping paper Furniture laminates Paneling Greeting cards Magazines HANDLING WASTE The wastage plastic material that comes out of the slitting machine is used in making plastic niwar (sutra). AARPEE Packaging sells this waste at Rs. 10 per kg to the local manufacturers of plastic niwar. 36
    • 3.) POUCH MAKING MACHINERY: Pouching Machine BOUGHT FROM: Shree Vinayak Packaging Machines, Ahmedabad Pouch or Bag making is the last step in the entire process. Our machines have been well equipped with electronic controlled clutch and computer control system to check the accuracy of each and every single piece. Our machines can manufacture pouches of various kinds of Center sealed, Side sealed, Standby packs, Re-Sealable, Gazette etc. 37
    • 4.) Flexographic Printing MACHINERY USED: Flexo Printer BOUGHT FROM: Gehlot Works, Jodhpur, Rajasthan PURCHASED IN: 2013 38
    • Process Overview In the typical flexo printing sequence, the substrate is fed into the press from a roll. The image is printed as substrate is pulled through a series of stations, or print units. Each print unit is printing a single color. As with Gravure and Lithographic printing, the various tones and shading are achieved by overlaying the 4 basic shades of ink. These are magenta, cyan, yellow and black. Magenta being the red tones and cyan being the blue. The flexo printer at AARPEE Packaging has 6 stations and has the capacity producing 180 metres printed plastic/paper roll in one minute. of The major unit operations in a flexographic printing operation are: o o o o Image preparation Platemaking Printing Finishing Below is a process flow diagram for flexographic printing: Image Preparation Image preparation begins with camera-ready (mechanical) art/copy or electronically produced art supplied by the customer. Images are captured for printing by camera, scanner or computer. Components of the image are manually assembled and positioned in a printing flat when a camera is used. This process is called stripping. When art/copy is scanned or digitally captured the image is assembled by the computer with special software. A simple proof (brown print) is prepared to check for position and accuracy. When color is involved, a color proof is submitted to the customer for approval. Flexographic Plate Making Flexographic and letterpress plates are made using the same basic technologies utilizing a relief type plate. Both technologies employ plates with raised images (relief) and only the raised images come in contact with the substrate during printing. Flexographic plates are made of a flexible material, such as plastic, rubber or UV sensitive polymer (photopolymer), so that it can be attached to a roller or 39
    • cylinder for ink application. There are three primary methods of making flexographic plates; photomechanical, photochemical and laser engraved plates. 40
    • Flexographic Printing Presses The five types of printing presses used for flexographic printing are the stack type, central impression cylinder (CIC), in-line, newspaper unit, and dedicated 4-, 5-, or 6-color unit commercial publication flexographic presses. All five types employ a plate cylinder, a metering cylinder known as the anilox roll that applies ink to the plate, and an ink pan. Some presses use a third roller as a fountain roller and, in some cases, a doctor blade for improved ink distribution. 41
    • Flexographic Inks Flexographic inks are very similar to packaging gravure printing inks in that they are fast drying and have a low viscosity. The inks are formulated to lie on the surface of nonabsorbent substrates and solidify when solvents are removed. Solvents are removed with heat, unless U.V. curable inks are used. 42
    • Finishing After printing, the substrate may run through a number of operations to be "finished" and ready for shipment to the customer. Finishing may include operations such as coating, cutting, folding and binding. Applications: Flexography is the major process used to print packaging materials. Flexography is used to print corrugated containers, folding cartons, multiwall sacks, paper sacks, plastic bags, milk and beverage cartons, disposable cups and containers, labels, adhesive tapes, envelopes, newspapers, and wrappers (candy and food). MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GRAVURE MACHINE AND FLEXO PRINTING: 1.) In gravure machine, high quality images and be printed containing text as well as picture. While in flexo printer only text can be printed. 2.) In gravure machine, the 6 stations are arranged in a line horizontally. While in flexo printer the six stations are arranged vertically. Flexo printer occupies less space as compared to gravure machine. 43
    • CONCLUSION It was a great learning experience at the factory of AARPEE PACKAGING. The opportunity was one which helped in practical understanding of the functional subjects which are being learnt in our course. Studying AARPEE PACKAGING as a company who has adopted incredible strategies has really helped in better understanding of the concepts. 44
