The Mouvent booth was packed throughout the 4-day event and visitors were impressed with what they saw

Mouvent will be at Labelexpo 2017 alongside its co-parent Bobst to reveal its first ever range of label printing solutions in action. These include two all-new, high speed 7-color UV ink printers (LB701 UV and LB702 UV) and a groundbreaking digital inkjet label printer in the narrow web segment that represents a ‘game changer’ in the industry. The compact machines were shown at the launch of the new company in Wetzikon near Zurich on 6 July 2017. The web presses print on various substrates such as paper, self-adhesive labels and flexible materials, with widths from 170 mm to 340 mm. Production speeds can reach up to 100 minutes a minute with a native resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and an optical resolution of 2,000 dpi.

“We are extremely excited about unveiling our range of label printers to the industry,” said Martin van Waeyenberge, marketing and sales manager, Label Machines at Mouvent. “We have some genuinely groundbreaking technology to present, which we believe will bring substantial benefit to companies. Digital printing will have an ever-increasing role to play, particularly in label printing, as the industry fulfils demand for expedited delivery, improved time to market, as well as versioning
and personalization, and we want to be at the forefront of that.”

‘Simplicity is our philosophy’
Mouvent develops, engineers, tests, and industrializes digital printers. The company is promising a new standard in inkjet label production cost and quality, and in ink pricing, head durability, quality, and machine performance. The plan is to do research and development on inks and substrates, and have major ink manufacturers supply these to customers although Mouvent will also manufacture initial batches.

The innovative cluster design, based on Fujifilm’s Samba inkjet nozzles and built using additive printing, is the base building block for all systems, current and in development. “The Mouvent Cluster represents a completely new approach—using a base cluster arranged in a modular, scalable matrix, instead of having different print bars for different applications and different print widths,” explained Martin van Waeyenberge. “This simple yet completely innovative approach is the key technology that differentiates the Mouvent machines. The innovation ultimately translates into high optical resolution for a crisp, colorful, very high printing quality as well as a neverseen-before flexibility and possibilities in terms of machine development.”

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.
