Adroitec Information Systems, a provider of additive manufacturing (3D printed) products and solutions, hosted an open house at its facility in Noida from 11-12 September 2023. Focused on 3D printing-based services, the company is set to explore all industrial manufacturing avenues of the segment. The open house was aimed at explaining the advantages of 3D printing in various industry verticals.

A global consultancy and services company with development centers in India, Adroitec is owned by a US-based subsidiary of HOPE Consulting and aims to stay at the forefront of technology. Saksham Rastogi, senior applications manager at Adroitec, believes Adroitec is suited to be the right outsourcing partner. “At Adroitec, we aim to be all-encompassing for several industries. With 3D printing, the only limitation is the idea of how the technology can be implemented,” he said.

Adroitec’s differentiating factor is an overlay of solutions with customization, integration, deployment, and optimization. Adroitec has developed as a total application solution provider based on its experience and customization capabilities. “We integrate our experience and knowledge with leading-edge technologies to develop and deliver need-based solutions on both intra and Internet deployment. We have the support of our partner Stratasys, an American-Israeli manufacturer of 3D printers, software, and materials for polymer additive manufacturing as well as 3D-printed parts on demand,” Rastogi said.

Rastogi says the adoption in India is rather slow but only a matter of time. “3D printing technology will be part of a greater curriculum in the Indian manufacturing industries. The adoption is slow for now, but with the depletion of virgin resources, the necessity of alternative resources is getting clearer. The Indian printing and packaging industries are now considering 3D printing as a viable solution, especially in the signage and luxury packaging departments.”

Adroitec has been a supplier of medical equipment such as prosthetics, educational models of brain, heart, etc., drones, and surgical instruments to the pharma industries.

But with all the possibilities that additive manufacturing presents, production speed and energy consumption become its Achilles’ heel. “Integrating the technology is possible and easy. However, 3D printing is not as quick as printing something on a sheet of paper. Printing an object takes time and energy and that is what we along with our partners at Stratasys are trying to improve. With efficiency in energy and acceleration of printing speed, this technology will become one of the most usable and sustainable technologies that the Indian manufacturers are striving for.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
