Gama International at K 2022 in Hall 4, Stand D12
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.

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!
