Bobst’s special label solutions

Bobst at Labelexpo India 2018

The Bobst stand at Labelexpo India 2018

Label converters, who visited the BOBST stand at Labelexpo India 2018 looking for equipment offering innovative digitized workflow for color and quality management, flexo printing & converting in one pass, and equipment connectivity, saw plenty of options to be excited about.

Up close explanations of the technical features of the M5 inline UV Digital Flexo and multiprocess press on show were paired with a rich variety of printed and converted samples. Dotting a dedicated wall display, this signature feature of BOBST process capabilities enables visitors to have the visual and tactile experience of the quality of the output printed and converted on BOBST machines.

The label market is heading towards applications that are increasingly complex in terms of finishing processes for substrate enhancement and die-cutting shapes, and India is no exception. Matteo Cardinotti, head of BOBST narrow & mid-web multi-process product line and managing director of Bobst Firenze, commented, “The automation and advanced technology of our production lines, coupled with the ease of use and lowest TCO in the industry make for a very attractive proposition for companies wanting to grow.”

We have received many queries and expression of interest on the part of both label converters wanting to be able to fulfill the increasing demand for special label applications, and also from offset printers that are looking to enter the label market with flexo equipment,” Cardinotti added.

The other visitors’ take away from the BOBST stand was the extent of BOBST service capabilities designed to help users maintain their equipment at optimum efficiency levels, expand their capacity and be easily upgraded to enter new market segments along with the growth of the company.

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 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.
