The design process of custom printed paper tubes

Now all kinds of products are used in packaging cans, a large part of which are beautifully designed paper tubes or paper cans, the following to introduce the design process of paper tubes:

  1. First of all, we must understand the size and shape of the product, the use of the product, and whether the product packaging has special requirements (such as anti-counterfeiting, special materials, etc.).
  1. Use the design software to design the shape and structure of the paper tube and the advertising pictures and advertising words used in the appearance.
  1. After the design effect drawing is confirmed by the merchant, the film and printing samples can be produced.
  1. Select qualified paper products (for example, food packaging must use food-grade raw materials) to produce paper tubes or paper cans.

The above is the conventional design and production process of paper tubes.

Labelling Paper requirements for food grade paper cans

1, Look: First look at whether the appearance is smooth and bright. Paper cans are all paper products, which will return moisture and mildew when they are not transported and stored. So the first thing to see is that the appearance is smooth and bright and there is no mildew.

  1. Smell: Glue is used in the manufacture of paper cans and tubes. The smell of glue directly shows the quality of the glue, good glue should be organic glue, the smell is not pungent, if the taste of the paper tube is very pungent, it is said that the quality of gelatin is not good, which not only affects the tightness of the paper tube but also makes your goods attached with odor.
  1. Press: the paper tube is relatively tight, and it will not disperse when the goods are rolled off and affect the rolling off of the goods, so it is necessary to test the tightness of the paper tube by hand at the time of selection.

How to control the paper tube quality in typhoon weather

As a paper tube and paper can manufacturer, we should pay attention to the following points in typhoon weather:

  1. Try to restrict employees to go out in extremely dangerous weather to avoid danger.

Why did the bottom cover of the paper fall off? 

Paper cans and paper tubes are more likely to be fixed at the bottom using glue or bottom forming processes than traditional iron and wood cans. So it will be lower in terms of firmness and force. But as long as the factory strictly controls the quality of the production of paper cans. Can also avoid this problem. Let’s analyze how to avoid falling off:

  1. During the production of paper cans and paper drums, the connection between the drum body and the bottom of the drum is mainly completed by the bottom sealing forming process, so the operation of the equipment forming the bottom sealing will affect the overall quality of the drum.

For the operation of the equipment, the change of the size of each part of the bottom sealing mold should be checked frequently, because the vertical plane of the locking ring die is prone to deviation when the mold closes the bottom of the paper bucket. The combination of the bottom of the paper bucket is not tight, which affects the degree of coincidence between the bottom of the bucket and the barrel body.

  1. When the bottom cover of the paper bucket is made of plywood, the thickness of the selected plywood is not uniform, and most of the thickness does not meet the national standard. In addition, the bonding strength between the plywood layer and the layer is low, easy to be separated from the barrel body, and the dimensional tolerance of the plywood cutting is inaccurate. Therefore, the cutting size should be strictly controlled within the tolerance range, and quality monitoring should be carried out;
  1. The quality of the adhesive used in the production of paper tubes and paper cans must be best.
