Converters wanting to leverage technology to improve productivity and deliver added value output to their customers will be interested to learn more about the advancements being offered by BOBST:

The brand new K5 VISION vacuum metallizer has been developed for CPP film producers and converters, owing to its dedicated features for handling heat-sensitive films and thin gauge substrates, while the K5 EXPERT is a perfect fit for high volumes, high speed and wider web requirements.

BOBST also continues to improve its range of extrusion coating and coating lines, through the introduction of the new CO 5000 and CO 8000 coating machines. Each customized solution brings with it a stream of new technical developments in a variety of segments, including aluminum lacquering for pharmaceutical and food applications, no-label-look labels and AlOx or SiOx protective or barrier coatings.

Compact in size and competitive in price, BOBST CL 750 multi-technology and SL 750 solvent-less laminators deliver ‘best in class’ performance for a wide spectrum of substrates and web combinations in the segment of high-end packaging, from very short run production upwards.
For gravure printing, alongside the RS 5002, the innovative technologies of the new RS 6003 platform will be illustrated. In CI flexo printing, BOBST solutions meet the demands of the Indian market, with the new MW series especially suited for production in the medium to lower wide-web range and a mix of job lengths.

The BOBST M6 line exemplifies the advantages of inline UV flexo and all-in-one-pass multi-process printing, as well as the benefits of BOBST Digital Flexo automation combined with 7-color REVO Extended Color Gamut printing, which has succeeded in uniting the entire press workflow through centralized standards and fully digitized press operation.

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.
