Ferrarini & Benelli
Polimetal is the universal corona treatment system ideal for any converting application (coating, laminating, flexo and gravure printing, extrusion coating) and for treating both conductive and non-conductive substrates, including plastic and metallized films, paper, aluminium foil and laminates.

At drupa 2024, the Romanengo, Italy-based Ferrarini & Benelli will display its newest solutions in the field of Corona and Plasma treatment systems.  At Hall 10, stand C20, Ferrarini & Benelli will display its Polimetal and Format surface treatment systems in the field of Corona treatment. 

Polimetal is the universal corona treatment system ideal for any converting application (coating, laminating, flexo and gravure printing, extrusion coating) and for treating both conductive and non-conductive substrates, including plastic and metallized films, paper, aluminium foil and laminates. Polimetal is equipped with special ceramic-coated electrodes and roller and it is designed to facilitate film threading and routine maintenance. The Polimetal line comes with four different models, available in the one and double sided version.

The newest solution Ferrarini & Benelli will display is the Format treatment system specifically designed to treat individual sheets of different format (size and thickness), ideal for laboratory applications or to optimize treatment for manufacturers who need to print on small batches of previously manufactured substrates, where treatment reinstatement is key to allow printing. Format allows treating both conductive and non-conductive substrates in different formats: A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4. 

During the exhibition, the visitors will be able to have their substrate samples tested with the Format system by the Ferrarini & Benelli team.

Plasma treatment

Ferrarini & Benelli will also display In Air Plasma, the plasma treatment system specifically designed for folder-gluer lines applications. The system comprises a generator with integrated transformer and a nozzle to discharge plasma. During the exhibition, the nozzle will be mounted on the laboratory’s robot, used to reproduce the power and speed features of the customer’s line and determine treatment parameters. 

In Air Plasma optimizes the hold of the glue and allows to manufacture high quality boxes for a variety of ends in the packaging sector. In Air Plasma for folder-gluer lines is also available with two nozzles for multiple gluing points. 

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!
