The new-generation Prinect Image Control 4 for optimum quality assurance in label and packaging printing.

The Power of Color is the slogan with which Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has chosen to mark the start of its new financial year as it introduces extensive additions for its color measurement and control systems and for the prinect color workflow. The move is a response to the growing demands for efficient and dependable quality control in commercial, packaging, and label printing. In prinect easy control, prinect axis control, prinect image control, and prinect inpress control, Heidelberg offers the market four spectral measurement systems for print shops of all sizes and sheetfed offset presses of all performance classes.

End-to-end spectral measurement, patented color control, and a further enhanced prinect color workflow facilitate rapid, low-waste job changes, as well as quality monitoring and logging for production, runs on all Speedmaster presses. Color control based on measured spectral values is the most promising method for achieving the desired colors as quickly as possible in a commercial, label, and packaging printing. That is precisely why Heidelberg has continuously developed spectral color measurement technology.

“The consistent development of the entire Heidelberg spectral color measurement portfolio gives commercial and packaging print shops of all sizes the opportunity to optimize their color workflow, moving it closer to the smart print shop model – even as far as autonomous printing,” explains Jürgen Mittmann, senior manager Product Management Sheetfed at Heidelberg.

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.
