DG Press, a provider of hybrid web offset printing solutions, is celebrating its 10th anniversary at Labelexpo Brussels. To commemorate the occasion, the company is giving away special vouchers for 10% discount on service and spare parts on its Stand A41 in Hall 7.

The label and flexible packaging market is moving to shorter run lengths and shorter time-to-market, and the pressure to deliver a sustainable solution will only increase over the next few years. Moving to offset, or combining offset with other printing technologies, might be the solution but is still fairly unknown to many converters. Nevertheless, DG Press has installed 100 web offset machines with sleeve technology in this market.

Vision web offset printing press

The Vision is a short-make-ready web offset printing press that combines shaftless technology with nearly all possibilities for inline options. The press can be used for several applications including security printing, commercial printing, direct mail products, label, pharmaceutical inserts and flexible packaging.

Machine configuration can be easily changed or expanded with additional modules for die-cutting, punching, mechanical and digital numbering, sheeting, cold and hot foil, etc. The ‘plug and print’ modularity includes options to add flexographic, gravure, letterpress, digital and rotary screen printing stations.

The Thallo web offset press responds to market demands for shorter runs, and offers better print quality. Delivering flexibility and cost efficiency for print runs of any length, Thallo offers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for short-run production.

Thallo is suitable for printing on film substrates, metal foils and multilayer laminates and therefore to produce in-mold labels, wrap-around labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging for food and non-food products.

After-sales services

In 2009, DG Press started as a service company to serve all users of Drent Goebel web offset presses worldwide. During Labelexpo, Frank Stoelinga and Robert Jan Lamers from the DG Service team is present at the stand to inform the visitors about the services offered by the company.

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 grown 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!
