UV varnishing

UV varnishing is a type of finishing that consists of applying shiny coating to the printed paper surface cured on a special machine using ultraviolet light that gives origin to its name.

Using UV coating protect products against physical impacts, it preserves brightness and intensity of the tints. Moreover, UV coating makes the design look more expressive, highlighting certain elements.

UV coating can be solid or selective when separate design elements are varnished. There are matte and glossy types of UV varnish. There are also different techniques of adding sprinkles to get different visual effects.

We use the following UV varnishing machines in our factories:

Carton Pasting

Carton pasting is a technological procedure that consists of joining two materials through gluing, one of the materials is the base (bottom) and the other one is liner (top). The technology improves rigidity and durability of carton packaging. It is destined for heavy products.

Usually hard board is used as a base and packaging board (with the tint or design paper) as a liner.

There is another way to paste the carton that is called slim backing. It consists of gluing two package cartons. It is normally used to produce exclusive boxes, clothing tags, POS materials and spine binders.

Our factories perform this procedure on a cross-purpose pasting machine FMZ-1260.

Paper Embossing and Hot Stamping

Typographic products, including packaging, acquires finished look if appropriate types of post-printing treatment are chosen. Well-chosen decoration accurately reflects the brand image and draws consumers’ attention.

HARMENS GROUP printing houses offer all modern types of finishing, as well as different options of paper embossing. Paper embossing consists of creating a relief image on paper, carton or other materials. Such image (impression) is created by pressing (embossing) a block.

Foil embossing creates a bright (usually silver or golden) impression on the surface. Foil embossed package looks elegant and festive. It serves well as gift packaging.

Blind embossing makes a deep impression without a foil. If you need a strict but elegant packaging, we recommend you this kind of finishing.

Hot stamping creates a relief image, the material gets an unusual texture that can be appreciated not only visually but also tactilely.

We use the equipment that allows doing any kind of embossing:

Paste-in Slip

Many products of FMCG segment need to be seen by a consumer without opening a package. It can be achieved with the help of little transparent windows on the front of the package. It is widely used in confectionery, perfumery, alcohol and textile productions. It is also often used for gift packaging. Transparent windows can be of any size or shape.

Paste-in slip can be done on a machine or manually.

HARMENS GROUP’s factories use ZKT-700 (Hengtong Machinery) to achieve the result.

Die cutting

Modern technologies allow producing packaging of all shapes and configuration. An engineer creates a quaint construction of a future package according to the layout. After the image is printed and the finishing is done, blanks are cut for the future packaging. This stage is called die cutting.

Die cutting consists of cutting complex shapes out of paper, carton, plastic or film by a stamp clicking the contours. Special clicking machines are extremely complex equipment that has scoring dies, clicking, perforating and grooving knives etc.

High precision, die cutting speed are the main demands made by consumers of the packaging. Clicking machines used by our factories meet our clients’ demands:

Tipping

The last production stage of packaging is tipping. There are particular demands place on it as it becomes ready-for-shipment packaging.

Well-calculated blanks and good tipping are required in order to convert a cut blank into a finished box. The more complex the format of a package is, the higher the demands for precise calculations are. Format and functional use demand multiple points for gluing.

We have the following folding-gluing machines with one, two, three, four and 6 gluing points:

Complex boxes with multiple gluing points folds irregularly placed are manually assembled. We have also aligned process of manual assembling of complex boxes.
