DuPont's stall design for Infoflex 2023

DuPont Cyrel Solutions has announced the newest member of the Cyrel Lightning plate family that is being launched at the FTA Forum & INFOFLEX 2023. The new Cyrel Lightning LFH plate is said to deliver quick access times, consistent printing results, and a reduced environmental footprint.

The Cyrel Lightning LFH plate was built on the technology of the award-winning Cyrel Lightning plates, which received the FTA Technical Innovation Award in 2022. 

“This new plate is optimized for the latest UV-LED exposure technology, such as the Esko XPS Crystal, and was designed for the sustainable thermal Cyrel FAST process. Combining the unique stability of LED exposure with the quick, easy and solvent-free platemaking of Cyrel FAST helps our customers produce high-end printing plates quickly and efficiently,” explains Tucker Norton, Global Business leader, DuPont Cyrel Solutions.

The new plate allows for the use of the latest screening technologies for enhanced print quality, making it ideal for tradeshops and converters seeking to produce high-quality plates. The workflow is simple to use and results in outstanding prints.

“We are confident that converters that are thinking about running platemaking operations in-house as well as other flexographic plate providers will appreciate the ease of use and the high quality printforms that this workflow provides. Combining UV-LED exposure and thermal Cyrel FAST processing offers repeatable and sustainable platemaking combined with a small operational footprint” adds Norton.

In conclusion, Cyrel Lightning LFH offers a quick, sustainable, and efficient solution to significant platemaking challenges. The new Cyrel Lightning LFH is available in 1.14 mm and 1.7mm (0.045’’ and 0.067’’) thicknesses.

“We are proud to keep innovating for our customers for improved print quality and productivity using our sustainable Cyrel FAST process. The Forum and INFOFLEX show provide a great opportunity to meet people, learn and share experiences, explore new technologies, and find innovative solutions. As a long-time sponsor of this show, DuPont values the contribution of these events to the flexography industry, which is aligned with our commitment to developing innovative solutions for our customers to thrive,” concludes Norton.

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!
