Rotocontrol DT 2.0 Hybrid Series being showcased at the open house

Rotocontrol is joining forces with Domino and EyeC to host an open house 24–25 November 2021 at Siek, Germany. The event will feature a live demonstration of an integrated end-to-end hybrid solution with the Rotocontrol DT 2.0 label finishing machine, Domino’s N610i inkjet label press, and the EyeC ProofRunner web inline inspection system.

“Visitors to our open house will witness a comprehensive hybrid solution in flexo and digital label printing, inspection, and finishing with a magnitude of features unrivaled in the industry,” said Marco Aengenvoort, Rotocontrol managing director.

Features of the highly modular hybrid solution include multiple die-cutting stations, rotary flexo and flatbed screen printing units, up to seven colors including opaque white, with 600dpi native print resolution, combining the productivity of flexo printing with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology. The N610i integration module incorporates Domino’s renowned, automated, i-Tech intelligent Technology productivity features for enhanced flexibility and reliability.

Other capabilities included in the hybrid line are lamination, cold foiling, hot stamping, label inspection with 100% outgoing quality control, corona treatment, UV LED curing, and a small roll programmable auto turret winding machine.

Domino expressing its pleasure in working with Rotocontrol and EyeC altogether

Ruud Bos, Domino’s DP OEM manager Europe, said, “We are delighted to be working with Rotocontrol and EyeC at this open house. This is a highly efficient method to print labels in one pass, combining digital printing with embellishments and in-line inspection. It is a single efficient process from white reel input, to outputting finished inspected labels, enabling the label converter to support short lead times, and also improve their environmental credentials through reducing material waste normally associated with multiple processes.”

Demonstrated on the running hybrid solution will be various types of high-quality printed labels with quick job changeovers. Label Printers who wish to attend the open house are invited to send their print files and material in advance for the live demonstration.

Two Ecoline RSI label finishing machines will also be showcased during the open house featuring the Domino K600i inkjet printer for barcode and QR code printing and the EyeC ProofRunner Web and Quality Link system.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
