SEI based in Bergamo has strong and continuous investment in R&D so that its innovative solutions for the converting industry ensure high performance of the packaging products and provide the modularity of a flexible platform that can be retrofitted on existing laminators and upgraded to suit new requirements. 

Food and beverage and consumer goods producers design effective packaging for the target market taking into consideration the modern consumer’s identity and needs, such as maximum freshness of the product’s shelf-life. SEI Laser’s systems enable innovative solutions such as easy-opening and closing as well as easy-breath, ventilation, and window packaging. Its new line of laser systems are designed for laser cutting, laser scoring, macro and micro-perforation of different materials such as PE, PET, PP, nylon, PTFE, laminated film, and paper. An important patented feature is the overlapping of laser scoring which enables laser scoring without gaps between two repeats.  SEI Laser’s patented window lamination is gaining high acceptance in Europe as its Cross Web series laser unit can be mounted or retrofitted on any solvent less laminator. 

SEI Laser’s main features are the precise and selective removal of material removal, laser perforating capability, and repeatability of the process. Up to 400 m/min can be reached in Cross Web (CW) laser cutting, laser scoring, and micro-perforation with its proprietary beam steering optics and galvanometric heads depending on the pattern. And, over 500 m/min can be reached in Web Direction (WD) laser cutting, scoring, and micro-perforation with fixed-optics heads. The all-digital process allows rapid changes of work and a significant reduction of downtime and costs. The easy-open solution reduces food waste and environmental impact, a sustainability concern to modern consumers.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
