Martin MBSF - automatic unwind/splicer for a wide range of applications

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.

Martin LRD
Martin LRD – non-stop transfer rewind with automatic roll unloading

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!

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 grown 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!
