Printing and embossing technologies recognised
Awards for this year’s World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award competition have been presented to Ball Aerocan and Nussbaum. The competition, organised by the International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers (AEROBAL) recognised Ball Aerocan’s G.Bellini 200ml for German customer Dalli Win, in the category of ‘can already on the market’. The can design combines deep embossing with a print that exactly matches the embossed contours for a unique visual effect and a pleasant tactile experience.
Meanwhile, Nussbaum won the ‘prototype’ category with its Brilliant 50 x 156 option. Here, for the first time, the application of high gloss printing foil is fully integrated in the manufacturing process of cylindrical aluminium aerosols. A high gloss foil, consisting of several different layers, is positioned during the pre printing process.
