Key supplier of unwinder, splicer and rewinder technology to the narrow web market, Martin Automatic, will be exhibiting two machines from its well-proven range at the upcoming Labelexpo in Brussels. Both of the machines to be shown in Brussels have been sold to the All4Labels Group and will delivered directly at the end of the exhibition for use on a Gallus Labelmaster 440 flexo press.
The MBSF (‘F’ for film) automatic unwind butt splicer on show is designed for a production environment where headroom is limited – a situation easily accommodated by Martin’s vertical accumulator (festoon) design. The splicer is capable of handling a variety of materials, including label stock and unsupported lightweight films.
The LRD is a two-spindle non-stop automatic transfer rewinder that complements the capabilities of the MBS perfectly. It is one of a range that Martin offers to automatically transfer the running web from a full roll to an empty core without stopping or slowing the line and can automatically unload finished rolls.
Following their popularity at recent trade fairs, Martin Automatic will also be showing its range of 1/12th scale 3D printed models of some of the machines it offers for various other industries beyond labels. These models inspired much conversation among visitors at Rosemont expo in 2018 while giving visitors a better understanding of the the full range of Martin’s capabilities.
The popular splice-sample closet will also feature on the Stand in Brussels, as will the renowned Martin hot dogs!
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.
