‘’As packaging companies around the world recognize the need to innovate to survive and thrive, Esko is launching its latest software release that empowers businesses to improve ways of working, eradicate waste and optimize operational processes.

“Innovation and change are inherent in any packaging business but driving and implementing that innovation is a challenge that can sometimes be difficult to achieve,” said Jan De Roeck, Esko director of Marketing, Industry Relations, and Strategy. “Many businesses, in the face of challenging market conditions, insecurity, and volatility, freeze investments in response. However, the opposite reaction is more appropriate. Investing in accelerating digital transformation maintains competitive advantage and efficiently deals with profitability pressures. We also know it is equally important that these innovations are integrated quickly and smoothly to ensure businesses achieve demonstrable improvements and a speedy return on investment.

“That’s why, as a reliable business partner, Esko is releasing its software version 22.07 bringing to market new technology developments that will advance the industry, whilst also equipping customers with the toolkit they need to realize the true potential of our technology.”

Esko Release 22.07 includes a host of new features, including –

AVT inspection for digitally printed labels package – a new complete print inspection solution for digital label production.

AutoSet for packaging – first of its kind automated print inspection settings for maximum efficiency and productivity.

Solvent Saver in Flexo Engine – delivers a solvent reduction of up to 20% in flexo production.

Cape Pack – offering end-to-end, cloud-based workflows for palletization optimization.

Automated Packshots – create hyper-realistic packaging images that are perfectly rendered for your clients’ use with an easy-to-use design and 3D tools.

ArtPro+ – upgrades include printing unit support and seamless repeat layout creation, as well as folding carton improvements and a new usage dashboard.

WebCenter – enhanced usability features to improve ease of use and maximize productivity and efficiency.

ArtiosCAD – new integration of FEFCO standards.

“At Esko, our close relationship with customers and partners enables us to quickly respond to specific market trends. “With this latest software release we address today’s market needs and ensure our innovations significantly improve customer outcomes,” said Jan. “We are focused on helping businesses not only successfully adopt new technology but also to make best use of it to deliver immediate results and meet the challenges they face today and tomorrow.”

Jan said the new Esko Release 22.07 will be launched at a live webinar event on Tuesday, 12th July. “We will demonstrate how Esko hardware and software solutions enable businesses, both large and small, to improve ways of working, identify and eradicate waste, and optimize processes with these latest innovations,” he said. “Crucially, we’ll also bring into focus the investments and tools we have developed to help customers make the best use of our technology and achieve long-lasting change.”

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 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.
