Kitashikoku Gravure Printing Co., Ltd.
We are a soft packaging material maker that supports short lead times and small lot production.
Our company plans and manufactures gravure printed packaging (soft packaging materials). We have established an integrated manufacturing system that comprehensively covers planning, design, platemaking, printing, laminating, and processing. This enables quick deliveries and high-mix low-volume production. We actively address environmental issues, such as VOC emission regulations to reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which is one of the causes of photochemical smog. Our company was selected as an Omotenashi Customer Service Business by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in 2012.
[Product description] We have been able to realize consistent color reproduction throughout our integrated production system from design to the final product. This has been made possible by moving the platemaking process in-house. Color calibration of the printers in the design phase and of gravure printing machines in the final product phase cannot match the shades of colors. This is because both processes use different machines, methods, and inks for printing. Our company uses a special printer that can print on film. We make optimal settings for our gravure printing machines to reproduce the same colors on the film and the final product as much as possible.
[Product description] Gravure printing is said to need at least 3 weeks of lead time from the time of the final blueprint proofing. However, our company can reduce this lead time significantly through our integrated production system. We can shorten the lead time for any new product launch while realizing a higher level of quality and sanitary control, which are inherent advantages of in-house production. We believe that GOLD 11 is the option that allows us to realize our customers’ requests in this era in which small lots and quick deliveries are the norm. Please consider using this option for expediting new product launches for products such as food and sanitary goods.
