IPM displays NanoTuff and NanoHard coatings at Printpack 2019

Coatings for better dot transfer


Industrial Processors and Metalizers, founded in 1972 by GC Sood, offers services to the printing industry. The company helps replace old worn-out parts of printing machines with brand new ones and also provides refurbishing services on used printing machines. The company has been the first mover in the industry to provide these services to printers.

At Printpack, the company is showing its NanoTuff and NanoHard range of coatings. These are robotic coatings with highest possible accuracy for dot transfer, thereby providing good print quality. These coatings are corrosion resistant and provide 15 plus years of corrosion-free life to the rollers and cylinders.

The company brings in the latest technologies in surface modification. “We basically enhance the surface of the printing machine components such as rollers and cylinders. We even have smaller machine components such as grippers and chase strips. There are various offset printing companies that we are associated with. We also work with people who have a Heidelberg or a KBA and instead of going in for a new machine, the general behavior is to change the machine parts. We are the only company in India that provides original coatings. We have worked with various web offset machine users such as Times of India, Rajasthan Patrika and Punjab Kesari, among others.

“We service the mechanical parts or lets say the moving parts in a printing machine. The main heart of the machine can be repaired by us and you can get the moving part back to its original state. We also provide extended warranty on the parts supplied by us. Ours is a completely robotic facility, one that is microprocessor controlled without any manual interference,” says Surbhi Sood, senior manager at IPM.

IPM does not only serve the printing industry; in fact, it began its journey with the printing industry 46 years ago. The company is now a diversified service conglomerate. It serves hydro power, automobile, textile, steam turbine and thermal power industries, among others.

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.
