Self-administration of drugs is on the rise – due to the increase in lifestyle-related diseases, as well as major advances in oncology and hormone therapy. Thanks to the availability of devices to support self-administration of drugs, today’s patients can manage their own treatment, more independently than ever before.

Following this trend, pharmaceutical companies are increasing the availability of combination products. In order to fulfill the growing demand pharmaceutical companies and CMO’s are looking for highly automated and flexible assembly solutions.

Syntegon’s Assembly machines are based on a modular platform design, which allows for a high level of customization, by means of being able to assemble various device types from different device manufacturers or being able to choose the level of automation from manual, semi-auto to fully automatic. Later upgrades are possible as well due to the modular design concept.

Other innovations are Syntegon’s tooling and assembly stations, which are fully scalable and independent from speed or throughput. The tooling you are using during the R&D work or show a proof of concept all the way to full high-speed assembly will remain the same. Allowing you to scale up your production and reduce the time to market your specific device.

Syntegon complements its machine assembly solutions with its own integrated high precision labeling and printing technology, which represents just one of the many solutions Syntegon Technology is offering to the medtech device industry.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
