More efficient box production and shorter lead times!

September 8, 2021
One of the most important goals of our Printing House is the production of high-quality products and the continuous increase of efficiency. The result of this is our latest investment, the new Bobst Masterfold box gluing machine, which is the perfect choice for special and complicated constructions and gluing larger corrugated boxes.      The Bobst Masterfold is the fastest, most automated box gluing machine currently available on the market. With very short setup time and reliable operation it ensures the continuous production of excellent quality products. It is capable of gluing large sizes, even packaging materials die-cutted from 1100x800mm sheets. Its performance can reach 100.000 boxes per hour. With the help of a 90-degree rotation unit it can glue multiple corners of more complicated box shapes and special construction as well, in one run. Thanks to the HHS unique code recognition, the Masterfold inspects the boxes during gluing and prevents the mixing of same sized boxes having different codes. This is very important in case of packaging materials for the food and pharma industries.   The photocells placed by the side of the glue dispenser nozzles checks the presence of the gluing and its position, ensuring the perfect quality and minimal waste. The machine automatically recognizes the FEFCO and ECMA standards, this makes the setup of the gluing of these box types rather simple and fast. The Masterfold is equipped with a complex security system, touch and movement protection, and motion sensors protect the workers from injuries. Cameras help the work of the operators and the whole machine can be controlled with a remote control. With this investment we can not only guarantee the stable high-quality, but we can also reduce the lead times and waste disposal, and we are able to provide more “comfortable” workstations to our Colleagues.  

The 10 most common problems connected to the submission of print files

February 15, 2021
In our latest blog article, we would like to address the most common problems related to printing artworks intended for printing. These problems can usually be avoided very easily if we follow certain rules during designing and saving the file. We tried to collect useful pieces of advice for each problem, which can help create perfect print files.   1. The submitted PDF does not meet the requirements of the PDF/X standard.   PDF/X (PDF for eXchange) standards are developed in order to make the submission and processing of print files seamless. In our printing house, printing artworks are expected to be submitted according to the PDF/X-1a:2003 standard. Although there are other PDF/X standards as well, we prefer this one because of its reliability. If this standard is used, the submission of print files is clearer and smoother, and numerous graphic problems can be eliminated. Saving print files in PDF/X format is possible even if they contain errors, but they will not be standard compliant. To resolve the errors, the error messages by saving the file and checking the ready PDF file for standard compliance with Adobe Acrobat Pro will help: click on Tools >Print Production >Preflight.   2. The output ICC colour profile (Output Intent) setting is missing or is not suitable.   For the sake of unambiguous colour communication, the output ICC colour profile (Output Intent) is to be assigned to the PDF file when saving it. This requirement is also included in the printing PDF/X standard. This setting will inform the printing house whether the colours of the file are suitable for the given technology and raw material. The output ICC colour profile is frequently unsuitable in the submitted PDF files. In many cases, the setting of colour profiles is completely ignored. This is caused by the assumption that for reproducing the imagined colour in printing, it is enough to set only the CMYK values. In such cases, colours are usually defined – even if it is unintentional – according to the default settings of the graphic software (e.g. U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2). This is problematic because the same CMYK value will result in different colours when using different ICC colour profiles and different production technologies. If the ICC colour profile defined as the working colour space of the given graphic software differs from the working colour space applied by the printing house, the colours on the designer’s screen and the colours of the final print product will be different. For this reason, it is worth creating the printing artwork and all of its imported elements already according to the output colour profile, i.e. according to the ICC colour profile conforming to production. In our printing house, the following colour profiles are to be applied: for coated papers PSOcoated_v3.icc, for uncoated papers PSOuncoated_v3_FOGRA52.icc For the accurate simulation and checking of the graphics’ colours, the drafting and visualisation software programs have to be set suitably. Furthermore, the use of a colour correct and calibrated screen is indispensable.

Change in file submission!

January 18, 2021
In Keskeny Printing House, printing artworks are expected to be submitted in PDF/X-1a file format.   The PDF/X (PDF for eXchange) standards are developed in order to make the submission and processing of print files seamless. The name of the popular file extension PDF is the abbreviation of Portable Document Format. This file format was developed by Adobe, with the aim of visualising documents independently of various systems (operating systems, tools, software programs etc.). So, the main point of PDF documents is that they appear in the same way on every platform. Generally speaking, PDF documents are created and used not only in the printing industry, consequently they may contain pieces of information which cannot be printed or will cause defects in printing. The resulting problems can be avoided if the files to be submitted meet the requirements of the PDF/X standards.   Applying the PDF/X-1a:2003 format makes file submission as safe as possible. In files conforming to the standard, only CMYK, Gray and spot colours are allowed, they cannot contain layers, transparency and embedded ICC profiles. Every colour element is to be separated to colours (convert to CMYK) and created according to the ICC profile (output intent) of the given printing technology. Applying this standard can make file submission unambiguous and seamless, and numerous graphic problems can be eliminated. Because of its reliability, we ask our customers to use this standard!   Other PDF/X standards: PDF/X-1a:2001 standard: an earlier version of PDF/X-1a:2003. The difference between the two does not influence the efficient submission and processing of files, so both formats are suitable. PDF/X-3: 2002 – PDF/X-3:2003 standards allow RGB and CIE Lab gamut and embedded ICC profiles. If these are not set suitably, the expected and the resulting colours may differ from each other. Another reason why we do not recommend using this standard is that it is already exceeded by the PDF/X-4 format. A PDF/X-4 standard allows RGB and CIE Lab gamut, embedded ICC profiles, transparencies and layers. If these are not set suitably, the expected and the resulting colours may differ from each other. Although it is popular and offers a wide range of functions, we do not recommend using this standard.

The advantages of paper trays against plastic packaging

September 14, 2020
The sustainable solution instead of plastic packaging   Probably all of us are familiar with the gesture when we unpack and then throw away a plastic package. It takes a few moments however it has a huge impact on our Earth. We are surprised when watching on TV the large garbage islands floating in the oceans and the animals drowning there. The size of the largest garbage island is the same as the area of France and Spain altogether. These islands are the result of such small countless gestures when we throw away plastics. We need to pay even more attention to this problem! Therefore, it is high time to use alternative solutions in packaging that pollute less our environment. We must not forget:   “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” David Brower   Why is the use of plastic boxes so harmful? Most of the plastic packages are used only once and when we unpack the products, we quickly throw these packages away. As fast as one plastic package gets into the garbage, as slow and cumbersome while it is degraded. Of course, we try to recycle plastic waste, however, what we managed to do is only 9% of the total. Another 10% is burnt up (thereby polluting the air) and the rest 81% is ended up in the landfills and in our environment, in our lakes, seas, and oceans. Plastic needs almost 400 years to be degraded. Just imagine, if the plastic had been invented a few hundred years ago, Napoleon would have used plastic cup for having his favorite Burgundy before a battle. If that were the case, we would see this cup in a museum.     What can we do for using less plastic material for packaging? The use of alternative packaging materials, cardboard boxes, and trays for packaging almost any food (fruit and vegetables, takeaway, salad, street food, etc.) offers the perfect solution and a great alternative instead of plastic boxes. Step by step, by each paper package, we do a little for our environment, for our world, for our future. The advantages of paper trays against plastic packaging:   ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS the raw materials are from environmentally conscious, sustainable sources RECYCLABLE MATERIAL paper trays – if disposed in a selective trash bin– are recyclable WIDE VARIETY OF FORMS trays are developed to perform their function, regardless of whether vegetable, fruit or ready-made food to be packed FULL PROTECTION FOR THE PRODUCT the raw material thickness and the folded sides give the trays sufficient rigidity and support UNIQUE APPEARANCE trays and boxes can be personalized with unique graphics   What kind of products do we offer paper trays for?   Our paper trays are suitable for packaging almost all vegetables and fruits. We also recommend these constructions for packaging takeaway, hot and cold foods (these can be soups, sauces as well). There are trays in which a separate section has been created for the dressings.

Exclusive insert solutions for packaging cosmetics and perfumes.      When packaging quality cosmetics and perfumes, it is worth paying great attention not only to the outer packaging, but also to the design of the insert. A well-chosen raw material and construction protects the product from possible damage on the one hand, and makes the overall effect more aesthetic on the other hand,it definitely increases the prestige of the product. At Keskeny Printhouse a white-white E corrugated cardboard is now available which is made from premium raw material, developed specifically for making inserts for luxury items.     The special appearance of the paper is given by the fact that all three layers of corrugated board (the two cover liners and the flute) are made of the same premium white MetsäBoard Natural WKL Bright material. The 100g / m2 thick layers together give a strong hold and protect the product well. The inserts are designed in consultation with the professionals working in our design department, whether it is a simpler or more complex construction.     This white – white E corrugated cardboard is not only recommended for perfume inserts. It is also a perfect food package, as it can be frozen and can come into direct contact with food.
