Echaar, which has already delivered and installed its first CI flexo press to a Kolkata customer, has developed its much faster Flexomater HR0500 CI flexo press that will be demonstrated to potential customers at its Ambernath factory from 13 to 17 2022. Echaar Equipments is an established engineering company and supplier of precision engineering components for mission-critical applications. This is expected to be a breakthrough event for the live demonstration of the first Indian made high-speed CI flexo press. 

The newly developed high-speed CI flexo press will be demonstrated from 10 am to 6 pm at the factory near Mumbai. Interested flexible packaging converters can contact the Open House Helpline at +91 9372198103 or Subir Dutta at +91 9830705000.  

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.
