Acme Rolltech, the first Indian manufacturer of ceramic rolls and sleeves, is preparing itself for Labelexpo India 2022 in Greater Noida. Taking place after four years, the event promises the excitement of face-to-face networking and information gathering for the label and packaging industry.

While speaking with Sandeep Sharma, director, Acme Rolltech, we learned that the company will launch its latest engraving technology ‘ACE (Advance Channel Engravings)’ at the event. Apart from the launch, the company will showcase its special rolls used for Screen type raised effects ATAC and high-density white AHDW. Also to be highlighted and discussed will be the company’s cleaning solutions and refurbishment program, which drives sustainable manufacturing.

Sharma says, “Labelexpo India 2018 was very special for us as it was the time when our company was incorporated, and we participated for the first time. In 2018, we were the first Indian to make anilox rolls, and nobody in the industry knew about this. But now, we are renowned in the narrow web flexo industry, and around 70-80% of the label printers are our customers. We work with almost all the OEM manufacturers from India and are already exporting to more than 25 countries.”

“For Labelexpo India 2022, we are expecting a huge crowd and quality customers. At the show, we will show the visitors our recent innovations. In 2022, we installed the latest Anilox Engraving machine, which comes with the highly advanced Laser Engraving technology – Twin Track, and launched the ATAC product. We have also launched AHDW that gives the highest opacity for the white in the narrow web label industry.”

Sharma concluded by saying that he thinks that after the pandemic, the label segment has grown rapidly and will continue its solid growth in the future.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
