CCSone for the flexo printing process will be presented by Gama International at K 2022.

The next K show, which will take place from 19-26 October 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, will be an opportunity for Gama International to meet converters from all over the world and to present its new updated Gama viscometers line. “Climate change made us reflect on the increased need for cool inks,” says Sante Conselvan, managing director at Gama International. “We have therefore improved the heat exchangers of our viscometers, which are now able to cool or heat the inks faster.”

Gama products are all made in Italy and boast quality certifications, such as IQNET, CSQ, ATEX and the IECEx international certificate. They include viscometers for flexo and rotogravure printing, ink treatment and print control technologies.

The CCSone – Consumption Control System has been recently launched on the market as part of the Gama ink treatment line. It is an innovative and indispensable product that can detect ink consumption in real-time through an interface physically connected to the ink container, generating information about ink consumption and the ink level during the printing process.

CCSone is suitable for both flexo and rotogravure printing processes, and its operating principle is based on controlling and measuring the pressure inside the container or basin. In addition to ink, applications include cold seal, glow, varnish lacquer and adhesive materials.

“This product has aroused considerable interest since, thanks to the data it generates on the consumption of individual inks, it can be inserted into the corporate data flow, managed with an ERP system, with the advantage of keeping the entire packaging production process under control,” explains Dario Calvalcoli, marketing manager at Gama International. Besides calculating the total ink consumption per product, the system also provides consumption data in a printed meter. This information helps calculate the ink needed for a similar job regarding colors but with a different print run.

Gama International to showcase its Sleeve Storage System at K 2022

Gama International also offers a renewed solution for the storage of sleeves, anilox and plates to flexo printers and converters – the Sleeve Storage System. The intralogistics solution consists of an automatic or manual Sleeve Storage System that minimizes the manual operations of the sleeve handling staff, thanks to an automatism for the collection/deposit of the sleeves.

“Gama International will welcome all visitors at its stand D12 at Hall 4. Our mission is to be close to converters and to listen to their needs, for whom we always work to implement our products,” says Elisa Conselvan, communications manager at Gama International.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
