“At Packplus we are displaying our coding and marking solutions from products to pallets which basically cover thermal inkjet printer, thermal inkjet over printer, large character coding,” says Anand of Domino Digital Printing Solutions. “The highlight of the show is Macrojet 3 and C7 laser printer. Macrojet 3 is the latest large character inkjet printer which provides robust and reliable coding on various substrates used in secondary packaging. The C7 laser printer was launched just a few days ago.”

The Macrojet 3 can be used with a wide range of inks, which are suitable for porous and non-porous surfaces from metal and plastic, paper or timber. “The print drop size of the printer can be adjusted for the substrate to be coded, offering the best print quality for the application. The printer is also capable of printing multiple lines of alphanumeric codes onto many different surfaces,” says Anand.

The C7 printer is capable of printing large characters on secondary packaging. Built on Inkjet technology, the printer uses water-based inks. “C7 coders eliminates the need for costly additional labelling on outer case packaging, resulting in improved inventory management,” says Anand. “This one-line printer is mainly for food and cement industries.”

Speaking about the Packplus experience, Anand says, “In this show, we have been able to meet a couple of prospective customers. We are also able to spend quality time with our customers because the footfall is steady and regular helping us avoid interaction overlapping as well as not letting us sit idle.”

Brother takes over Domino

PPD15 logoJapanese multinational Brother acquired the Cambridge-based Domino in June 2015. According to Brother, the strength of Domino’s customer base across its coding and marking business, and its desire to develop the scope and coverage of the digital printing sector are the key reasons for the acquisition. The Domino brand and management structure remains unaltered after the acquisition, with Domino Printing Sciences operating as an autonomous division within Brother Industries. Nigel Bond, CEO of Domino Printing Sciences, says, “Brother respects and values Domino’s brand equity, technologies and strategic vision for the business and the markets it serves. As such, the companies will be working closely together on natural growth opportunities, as well as explore collaborative possibilities to develop new products.”

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.
