Mumbai-based Advanced Graphics System is a supplier of color measurement and management solutions. The company represents some of the leading brands from across the world. It also supplies digital sample cutting solutions for the packaging, digital and flatbed printing market.

At the recently concluded Pamex 2017, the company introduced for the first time to the Indian customers a text verification software called TVT (text verification tool), which helps in comparing two different file formats like a Word to a PDF or a PDF to an Illustrator to an HTML, etc., and helps in finding out the missing text, change of fonts, change of image size, barcodes, QR codes, etc.

“This solution is meant for customers in the packaging segment as well as in the commercial printing segment,” said Vishnuu R Kamat of Advanced Graphics System.

Advanced Graphics System also promoted solutions from X-Rite, a very popular brand in India that makes spectrodensitometers, auto tracking devices, plate readers, etc.

Another popular product displayed at Pamex was the sample maker from China-based Aoke. Kamat informed that there are close to 40 installations of the sample makers in India.

Other solutions that Advanced Graphics System talked about at the expo were PDF and print inspection software for testing any missing fonts, missing bar codes, QR codes, CIP 3 and closed loop solution controls for offset presses, proofing & profiling RIP software, and laser cutting and engraving machines.

Talking about the response received at Pamex, Kamat said that apart from the first day all the other three days were very busy with a significant footfall. “We met with a lot of people from the packaging industry. However, there were also a few from the commercial printing industry space,” he said.

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!
