BST eltromat’s full range of solutions on show

Sensors, web guiding systems, automation and networking solutions

BST eltromat will be presenting the CLS Pro 600 high-performance sensor at K, which helps in precise guiding of the material webs, even when dealing with broken lines or weak contrasts

At K 2016, in Stand C-34 in Hall 4, BST eltromat will be presenting a comprehensive offering of innovative and time-proven solutions for quality management and control, as well as the networked automation of subprocesses in the web-oriented manufacture of products made of plastic and rubber. The focus will be on the comprehensive range of sensors, the broad portfolio of web guiding systems, the quality assurance systems of the iPQ-Center and the company’s automation and networking solutions. In addition, the BST ProControl subsidiary will be represented in Hall 10 (Stand E-46), together with the group-wide innovation management activities.

iPQ-Center covers a wide range of inspection tasks

The iPQ-Center from BST eltromat, based on the modular principle, allows individualized solutions to be configured for a host of different inspection tasks, such as 100% defect detection, colour monitoring amongst others.

Complete portfolio of sensor systems

In the field of sensor systems, BST eltromat will be showing not only ultrasonic and optical web edge sensors, but also wide-array sensors and digital sensors. One highlight will be the multi-functional, versatile CCD CAM 100 line scan camera, which covers large measuring widths without moving parts. BST eltromat will be emphasizing the incomparably simple operation of this high-performance digital sensor at K. This line scan camera can be integrated in machines easily, and also replaced if necessary.

Web guiding with CompactGuide and SmartGuide

In the field of web guiding, the BST eltromat presentation at K 2016 will include its particularly reliable and flexibly configurable solutions. Depending on the requirements, the CompactGuide with its various sensors, splice tables and clamping devices is selected for narrow-web processes. In contrast, customers may rely on the time-proven SmartGuide systems if they want simple handling when working with wide material webs.

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
