Spande
The S7 Series flexo press

Chinese machine supplier Spande will attend Labelexpo Europe 2019 for the first time in the company’s 10-year history. The company will present the S7 Series flexo press, launched in May 2019.

“This is our first show on such a big international stage, and the first step in our global market strategy. We look forward to meeting European customers, and introducing them to our intelligent, productive, easy-to-operate flexo printing solution,” Spande chairman Steven Ye said.

The European introduction of Spande and the S7 Series comes just 4 months after launching in China. “After the demo in May, we have sold several presses to top label customers in China and received great feedback, so we are ready to share the technology on the international market,” Ye said.

The S7 Series is available in 370mm, 450mm, and 520mm web widths, with printing speeds up to 200meters/min. S7 Series presses have eight servo motors in each printing station, features the i-Pressure system, which automatically recalls and loads precise printing pressure, and the i-Vision intelligent registration and impression system, which ensures registration corrections at each printing station, independently, and at any moment – during machine start-up, job changes, etc. Benefits for the customer include intelligent setup, short make-ready times, and minimum waste. The company will be in Hall 4, stand 4A40.

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!
