Atlas Converting Equipment (UK) will present its range of primary and secondary slitter-rewinders at the K Show in Düsseldorf, Germany from 19 to 26 October on Stand 3B91 in Hall 3. 2016 is looking to be another bumper year for Atlas Converting Equipment with orders significantly ahead of the previous year and with the scheduled delivery of three 10.5 metre primary slitter-rewinders in 2016.

Being one of the first companies to develop slitting and rewinding machines to handle unwind widths of over 5 metres Atlas quickly became the industry leader in primary slitting and rewinding. By continuing to push the boundaries of engineering and process control, modern Atlas slitter-rewinders can accommodate 10.6 metres wide unwind rolls and process them at a staggering speeds, up to 1,500 metres a minute (5,000 feet a minute).

With its brands of Atlas & Titan, Atlas Converting Equipment is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of primary and secondary slitter-rewinders for plastic films, labelstock, laminates and other flexible materials. The company has to date installed more than 2,600 secondary Titan and 1,000 Atlas primary slitter-rewinders worldwide, with over 250 film slitters exceeding 6 metres (236 inches) in width.

Titan secondary slitters comprise the small footprint ER610, the highly flexible SR800 and two models of the high productivity SR9 series, one a duplex slitter-rewinder, the other a duplex turret machine allowing operators to get the machine up and running again in typically 30 seconds from stop to start.

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.
