Printing & Paper Industry

The printing & paper industry is a diverse industry as it includes different products that bear some form of printing. These may be books, daily newspapers, periodicals, packaging, cartons, carrier bags, drink containers, signs, forms, brochures, advertisements, wallpaper, textiles, sheeting, metal foil, and many more. The printing industry a growing industry. This industry has witnessed tremendous changes since early 1990s wherein the industry transformed from manufacturing to service industry. The printing industry is divided into various types of printing techniques like offset printing, screen printing, letter press printing, flexography, digital printing etc.

The printing industry has a substantial portion of total volume of goods and services and at the same time largest accumulation of small scale businesses in the manufacturing sector. This industry is rapidly growing with almost every industry using printing techniques and processes for efficient communication. After China, India is the fastest growing print industry. The printing industry has been a significant contributor to the GDP of India as well as other countries. The paper industry is a very important industry for the growth and development of any economy. The Indian paper industry is a growing industry. Several fiscal incentives have been provided to this industry, especially to those mills which are based on non-conventional raw material. The demand for upstream market of paper products, for example, tissue paper, tea bags, filter paper, light weight on line coated paper, medical grade coated paper, etc. is rapidly growing giving a boost to the industry. Demand for paper would go on increasing.

Rubber Products in the Printing & Paper Industry

Like all other industries, rubber products are also used widely in the printing & paper industry. Rubber Rollers are the essential rubber product used in this industry. Rubber covered rollers are made up of three parts: a metal core, a rubber bonding adhesive which is applied to the core, and also a rubber cover. The largest market for these rubber rollers is the graphic arts and printing industry. This industry uses rollers in printing presses to pass the ink onto the printing plate. Other applications include paper-making, plastic film production, printing, steel fabricating, manufacturing of textiles, metal coating, leather processing and so on. In the paper industry, the rubber rollers are used to squeeze water out of newly formed paper web, which compresses to the desired thickness. The rubber printing block is used for flexographic printing. The printing plates are coated with rubber coating for durability. Besides rollers, other molded and extruded rubber products are equally important. Some rubber products used in the printing industry are as follows:
