2014 Indonesia Corrugated Industry Summit

2014 Indonesia Corrugated Industry Summit Reap the Full Support of Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association 2014 Indonesia Corrugated Industry Summit, organized by Reed Exhibitions and co-organized by the Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI), will be held on Sep 22th~24th, 2014 at Pullman Jakarta Central Park Hotel. Since the foundation of SinoCorrugated in 2001, the Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI) has been in support of SinoCorrugated for 10 years. This summit will blow the horn of the global expansion of SinoCorrugated. Introduction of the Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI) Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI) is the official association of carton box and corrugated cardboard manufacturers in Indonesia. Since the establishment of this association in 1973, PICCI has been committed to a twofold mission. Firstly, it is PICCI’s aim to unite carton box manufacturers and the supporting industries in Indonesia by encouraging the sharing of information and greater mutual understanding among association members. Secondly, PICCI is committed to enhance our business environment through healthy competition. And the vision today at PICCI is to inspire all the members to become professional players in our industry while at the same time preparing them to compete on an equal footing with global players. All members of PICCI are manufacturing companies of carton boxes, ranging from small-scale producers with only one corrugation machine to large manufacturers with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. The members serve a variety of customers both within Indonesia as well as overseas in several business sectors, including consumer goods, electronics and pharmaceuticals. Every corrugated carton box manufactured by a PICCI member is tailor-made to meet each individual customer’s specification. Associate PICCI members include the essential supporting industries, including suppliers of ink, glue, and machinery as well as paper manufacturers. The main purpose at PICCI is to maintain industry standards and ensure that all our members refrain from any conduct that could impede their operations or development. At the same time, PICCI is committed to encouraging greater cooperation as well as mutual responsibility between PICCI members in order to produce higher quality products. PICCI believes this can be achieved by focusing on three specific areas. Firstly, by increasing and developing PICCI members’ expertise through training and seminars. Secondly, through sharing information among PICCI members as well as providing consultation when and where necessary. And thirdly, to ensure continued, on-going improvements in the production process of PICCI members to achieve a higher level of efficiency. In terms of short-term objectives, PICCI is dedicated to ensure that the association members remain manufacturers of high quality carton boxes with added value. In addition, PICCI is also dedicated to providing the best benefits to all PICCI members in terms of our dealing on members’ behalf with third parties such as conference and exhibition organizers, customers and suppliers as well as technical and government institutions. 2014 Indonesia Corrugated Industry Summit reveals the motive powers of the Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI).

Demystifying Indonesia’s Corrugated Packaging Industry

Accurate Data and Accessible Language- Demystifying Indonesia’s Corrugated Packaging Industry Due to rising demand for fast-moving consumer goods and other household items, Indonesian investment in corrugators continues to increase. In the past year, Indonesia’s production capacity of corrugated paperboard rose 12% and the country’s total annual corrugated industry production capacity reached 5 million tons. 2013 was the fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth for the industry’s production capacity in Indonesia. “Today, there are about 160 to 170 corrugators of different widths in use in Indonesia,” said Kinardo Ang, President of the Indonesian Corrugated Cardboard Industries Association (PICCI) and General Manager of PT Satyamitra Kemas Lestari (SKL), a corrugated board manufacturing company. “Most recently invested corrugators are between 2.2 and 2.5 meters in width, with speeds of 200m/min or higher. That includes the Mitsubishi and Isowa corrugators, as well as five more from the Chinese mainland.” About 60% of Indonesia’s corrugators are in the Greater Jakarta Area in West Java, 25% are installed in East Java, 5% in Central Java and the rest in Medan (North Sumatra), Palembang (South Sumatra) and Batam, near Singapore. Most corrugators in Indonesia use lightweight paper. The 125g corrugated paper that was formerly standard use is now being phased out in favor of 112g paper. At the same time, 200g cardboard has been reduced to 150 grams. Most of the resultant paper is made from locally sourced raw materials. Although Indonesia has an annual production capacity of 5 million tons, corrugators are only being used to 60% to 70% of their capacity. Nevertheless, investments are still being injected into carton plants and corrugators in Indonesia. Apart from investing in new corrugators, many corrugated box manufacturers have invested in post-print production lines over the past few years. The rise in minimum wage has forced more and more corrugated box manufacturers to upgrade and automate machinery, which in turn has led to greater investment in post-print production lines and converting equipment. The most illustrative example of this shift is of corrugated box manufacturers who used to engage 10 to 12 laborers along the assembly line. As levels of automation have increased, so that figure has dwindled to just one or two. Cardboard production plants and mainstream corrugated box plants pay close attention to energy costs and look to invest in machines with lower energy consumption. PICCI has about 90 members who are corrugated board and corrugated box manufacturing companies. There are still about 500 smaller Indonesian cardboard plants that also make corrugated boxes but are not members of the association. In Indonesia, most corrugated packaging is used to package food, beverages, electrical appliances and electronics. The industry is very optimistic about the future of the rapidly developing Indonesian corrugated board and carton manufacturing industry. The belief is that a new round of sustained growth of the corrugated box market is on the horizon. The 2014 Indonesia Corrugated Industry Summit will be held at the Pullman Jakarta Central Park Hotel from September 22 to 24. This Summit is jointly organized by Reed Exhibitions, organizer of SinoCorrugated events, and the PICCI. As part of the global rollout of SinoCorrugated, the Summit is expected to help usher in a new chapter in the development of Indonesia’s corrugated box industry.

Honeycomb Paper: Driving Panel-Type Furniture Trends

Honeycomb Paper: Driving Panel-Type Furniture Trends----The Dawn of a New Era of Fast Indoor Décor In early 2012, the media portrayed in a negative light the fact that Vanke had used paper to produce furniture, after the company’s exquisitely decorated house was suspected of using poisonous floor materials. Not long ago, Coomo Furniture was suspected of using cardboard posing as walnut, casting paper furniture in a controversial light once more. Several months ago, IKEA faced a tough product quality problem because the LACK bookshelf board was found to be filled with honeycomb paper . The National Geographic Channel even pointed out that the so-called solid wood Furniture was actually made of synthetic wood, by mixing wood chips with glue and drying it. Influenced by this negative press, the home furnishing field became averse to the mere mention of paper for quite some time. IKEA explained that the paper furniture used a honeycomb structure, which gave great support on both sides of the board. The negative reporting did not retard the development of paper furniture. Honeycomb paper is a new type of sandwich structure, energy saving material made according to the honeycomb found in nature. The corrugating medium is glued into innumerable hollow three-dimensional regular hexagons to form a whole load-carrying paper core, and surface paper is pasted onto both sides. Because it is lightweight, inexpensive, strong and recyclable, honeycomb cardboard is popular, especially in developed countries like the Netherlands, the US and Japan. It is a new type of green packaging that can save resources and protect the environment. At various domestic furniture exhibitions this year, honeycomb paper furniture will be under the spotlight, thanks to the features just listed. China’s annual wood consumption is 50 - 60 million m3. According to the National Energy Saving and Emission Reduction Manual issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology, saving 1m3 wood can reduce carbon emissions by 643g. If 20% of China’s total wood consumption in furniture manufacturing is substituted by honeycomb paper core, the country can cut carbon emissions by about 154.3 million tons a year. By widely promoting the use of honeycomb cardboard parts for furniture in furniture manufacturing , we can save about 10 million m3 of wood a year. Paper Furniture Breaks Market Trends and Brings New Development Opportunities During the three decades since China’s policy of reform and opening up began, real estate and furniture manufacturing have flourished, thanks to a large number of wood-based panels. There were over 50,000 furniture factories in China with a sales volume of over RMB 1.01 trillion (USD 164.1 billion) in 2012. After cars, clothing and household appliances, furniture is now the fourth most voraciously expended consumer good. Annual wood consumption is 50-60 million m3 a year and continues to grow rapidly. This is putting great pressure on the implementation of the sustainable development of China. To ease the increasingly prominent contradiction between market supply and consumer demand, paper honeycomb furniture emerged at the right time. Under the dual influence of the need to be environmentally sensitive and compliant with national regulations, honeycomb paper furniture is becoming increasingly popular. Wood consumption by the furniture industry is up to 80 million m3 a year in China. If honeycomb composite board is widely used in furniture manufacturing, it will greatly reduce wood consumption. Experts predict that the use of one ton of paper honeycomb composite materials will save 30-50 m3 wood.

SinoFoldingCarton 2014 – Asia-Pacific’s Prime Stage for N...

SinoFoldingCarton 2014 – Asia-Pacific’s Prime Stage for New Product Debuts Final preparations are now underway for SinoFoldingCarton 2014 , an event that promises great opportunities for industry professionals to expand their businesses in the booming Asian market. This is the leading folding carton event in the region and an excellent facilitator of cooperation and trade between folding carton packaging printing enterprises and suppliers. The annual SinoFoldingCarton show attracts a large number of packaging equipment manufacturers, agents and traders. This year many well-known exhibitors will debut top new products to visitors who will be able to watch expansive demos up close and interact face-to-face with exhibitors. In carton making, folding pasting is a key post-print processing step. Advancements in folding pasting techniques have brought about faster, better and more stable packaging technologies for the post-print folding carton industry. They’ve also added new highlights to the beauty of paper packaging products . Dongguan Shunchin Machinery has focused on the R&D and manufacturing of box pasting machines for over a decade. The company specializes in making various kinds of high-speed automatic box pasting machines. So far, it has developed over 10 series of box pasting machines of different sizes ranging from the Model 550 to the Model 2800, which, locally and internationally, are widely used in large and medium-sized packaging printing enterprises. These machines have received widespread praise from users. Cai Qi’an, General Manager of Shunchin Machinery, recently gave an overview of the company’s latest developments. High-End Positioning and Focus on Box Pasting Machines Speaking about market positioning, Mr. Cai said that Shunchin positions itself mainly to serve the medium- and high-end markets. Most of its products are sold to Japan, Germany, Thailand and Indonesia. These international markets account for about 60% of total sales. Shunchin’s domestic customers are mostly large companies like Lukka International. Mr. Cai rates the quality of Shunchin’s equipment alongside that of well-known international brands, at just one third the price. This is why Shunchin’s products are so well received. Shunchin Machinery (http://www.sino-f oldingcarton.com/z h-CN/zhan-shan/256 277) manufactures most of its products according to the specifications of its customers. This means that its production is stable. Mr. Cai says, “Unlike most other enterprises in China, all the equipment we produce is tailored to the specifications of individual customers. So we basically have no inventory. Our annual output is only about 40 to 50 sets. Also, we have no debt; in fact, we are in the black. So we do not suffer from the capital chain problem and our company’s development is very stable."

Low Carbon Environment Protection and Green Flexography P...

Low Carbon Environment Protection and Green Flexography Packaging——Donggua n Yihua Flexible Technology to Show at SinoCorrugated South 2014 Flexography has a unique combination of flexibility and economic efficiency. It is beneficial to the environment and compliant with hygiene standards for food packaging printing materials . This also why the flexography process worldwide is developing so rapidly. In China's current industrial climate, offset and gravure printing occupy a large market share in the packaging industry . By comparison, flexographic technology got a relatively late start. Although the former has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, there is still a gap between flexography and advanced international technology. In recent years, Dongguan Yihua Flexible Technology has dedicated itself to improving the quality of flexography. In early 2013, the Company started using the Kodak Flexcel NX plate making equipment. After installation and debugging the machine functioned efficiently. Within a single year, the company’s sales volume doubled. Moreover, the number of color plates actually tripled. On August 16, the Kodak - Yihua Flexography Plate Making Technology Seminar was held in Dongguan. In an interview, the company’s GM, Qiu Dong, talked about Yihua’s focus on flexographic plate making. Two Decades of Experience in Flexographic Plate Making In the early 1990s, the development of the printing industry in Guangdong was the country’s most rapid. As was the adoption of new technologies and equipment. However, flexography was new to China at that time. Flexographic plate making technology in particular was considered a novelty that had been mastered by foreign-funded companies based in places like Hong Kong and Singapore. During that time, a teenage Qiu Dong joined the plate making department of a printing packaging company - his first ever job. Since then, he has developed a strong bond with the flexographic plate making field, devoting his whole career to it. Mr. Qiu founded his own company in 1994, having accumulated enough experience to successfully operate his own business. Entrepreneurial challenges have been interspersed with extraordinary achievements and huge changes in flexographic plate making technology. Today, Dongguan Yihua Flexible Technology is one of Guangdong’s best known flexographic plate making companies. Seeking Differentiated Competitive Advantages In 2012, Yihua, to enable the company’s development, positioned itself as a middle to high-end flexographic plate maker. The company then made plans to buy the most advanced flexographic plate making equipment. After conducting extensive research, the Yihua staff gained a full understanding of Kodak, NetScreen, Esko, Luscher and other relatively mature flexographic plate making equipment brands. The various pieces of machinery all have different features. Because deciding to make a multi-million RMB investment in equipment is no small matter, the challenge is always to make a wise choice.

Honeycomb Paper Enjoys a New Lease on Life

Honeycomb Paper Enjoys a New Lease on Life SinoCorrugated South 2014 to Host Dedicated Honeycomb Paper Zone In the honeycomb paper industry, paper-based materials are used as raw materials to produce honeycomb-shaped composites. As the main alternative to packaging materials like wood and EPS foamed plastic, honeycomb paper is an emerging branch in the packaging industry. Thanks to it special advantages and features, it has become a growing industry focus. In recent years, honeycomb paper materials are not only growing in use in paper container packaging, but also extensively across the building materials, furniture, door, and window material industries. As the application scope continues to expand, honeycomb paper materials are garnering more attention from within the packaging industry. Against this backdrop, SinoCorrugated South 2014’ s honeycomb paper zone is a timely new feature. It is China’s first display platform of honeycomb paper products and will explore future development trends in the industry. Honeycomb paper is a new type of sandwich-structure d, energy saving composite. The raw material used to make corrugated paper is glued into hollow, hexagonal structures to form a whole load-carrying paper core. Surface paper is pasted on both sides of it. Because it is lightweight, inexpensive, high strength and recoverable, honeycomb cardboard is popular, especially in developed countries like the Netherlands, the United States and Japan. This new type of green packaging can save resources and conserve the environment. Currently, the Honeycomb Paper Market is Mature, Stable and High-Level China’s honeycomb paper technology did not start at a high level. However, the introduction of advanced foreign technologies, combined with nearly 20 years of research and development, has spurred the advancement of industry technology. Today, fifth and sixth generation honeycomb cardboard production equipment has successfully been developed. With certain production capacity, an entire industry has emerged with products such as raw and auxiliary materials, production equipment, honeycomb cardboard, pallets, packaging boxes, building materials decorations, furniture and liner plates. China currently has hundreds of honeycomb paper equipment producers. This total is gradually increasing too. At the same time, a batch of chemical fiber production companies in provinces like Jiangsu and Shandong are using honeycomb cardboard to replace EPS foamed plastic as partitions, to good effect. Industry experts predict that, if the annual output of filament in China reached 5 million tons, it would need about 100 million sqm of honeycomb cardboard. This is a sign of the honeycomb cardboard market’s great potential. It is also confirmation that China’s honeycomb paper technology needs continuous innovation.
