CFM P, CFM Econo at Daetwyler

High-accuracy turning, grinding and polishing of gravure cylinders

Daetwyler Graphics is showcasing the CFM Econo at drupa

Daetwyler Graphics is debuting the advanced CFM P and its younger sibling, the CFM Econo at drupa 2016 (Hall 16 Stand D10). In addition, the company is showcasing its newly developed Finishstar SlimLine S. The grinding and polishing machine is an important component of an automatic cylinder line developed together with other Heliograph Holding companies. The CFM P – the company’s flagship for high-accuracy turning, grinding and polishing of gravure cylinders – has several additional features that increase quality and productivity. These include integrated diameter measurement, a greater degree of automation and more operating convenience. Together, these ensure achievement of the desired set point. Alternative grinding and polishing technologies also enable more homogeneous surfaces at noticeably shorter process times. Such innovations considerably
reduce production time and lead to massive increases in productivity.

Daetwyler Graphics’s Finishstar Slim LineS1410 grinding and polishing machine is making its first European appearance at drupa. This newest machine generation is designed for integration into fully automatic production lines that manufacture hollow gravure cylinders with ball lengths of upto 1400mm and a maximum weight of 150kg. Optimal process times that guarantee high throughput, coupled with compact and space saving construction, make this equipment the ideal component for the automated concept of the future that the Heliograph Holding is bringing about.

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.
