Frequently asked questions about labels
When people talk about laser tags, they must think of the word "need to be treated" because it is difficult to produce and transport. Of course it is a great product and the market has a lot of demand for it. But if you can replace it with other tags, then give up the laser tag.
One problem is overheating. The heat of the fusion head on a laser printer is 250-300 degrees Fahrenheit. To produce a good label, the base, adhesive and lining must be combined. Even if all kinds of raw materials are well-fitted, if the label moves too slowly during printing, it will be thermally damaged. The other is the problem of label chamfers - which means the labels are obsolete. After the product is damaged, it must be repaired at the printing house.
Paper suppliers and manufacturers need to address the above issues before the label is shipped to the user.
Laser tags are typically processed on a rotary flexographic printing device. According to Heinl, vice president of RPA, Iowa. "Laser labels are difficult to produce on a press."
Paper suppliers need to understand the moisture control requirements required for laser labels to solve the problem of curling and jamming. Regardless of whether the crimping occurs on 81/2 or 11 die cuts, it will be difficult for the manufacturer to solve this problem.
Adhesives are another element. Heinl said, "If it's too soft, it will be on the roll, so it's expensive to repair. Unless you use the right blade when cutting the edge, dust will accumulate on the roller and the press will get stuck."
In addition, be careful on the finished package to avoid label hem and damage to printer information.
According to the sales coordinator F of the Illinois CD company, the company uses a special anti-roll lining and a sealable plastic bag to package the laser tag to protect it from moisture (tidal plus heat will cause the product to curl). Since the adhesive does not dry out after one year, the shelf life of the label is written on the package. F said that when the user feeds the laser label to the machine, he can put the hand into the feeding tray to prevent curling, so as to avoid malfunction.
