general manager- South Asia

Industrial identification and labelling solutions provider Novexx Solutions showcased some of its print and apply and labelling solutions at the Inter­pack show in Mumbai, which was held from 26-28 September 2017. Germa­ny-based Novexx Solutions distributes its solutions in India through manroland India.

The company presented a live demo of its print and apply machine ALX 924 and labelling system ALS 204. Both these machines were integrated into one unit for demonstration. ALX 924 has a print speed of 400 mm/sec and a resolution of 300 dpi. It allows systems to label products in a 1:1 print and apply mode. The ALS 204 labelling machine allows labels between 10 mm and 106 mm width to be applied on the top of products. The maximum apply speed is 40 m/min.

Sajan Abraham, general manager – South Asia, Novexx Solutions said that the idea behind having the two solutions in one demo conveyor was to demonstrate how both the systems work in different scenarios.

The second product on display was the recently launched 6-inch all-round label printer XLP 506—the latest entrant in its XLP 50x series. The newly developed in­dustrial all-round printer is designed for label widths of up to 185 mm and is suit­able for a wide range of industries using either thermal direct or thermal transfer technology.

The XLP 506 delivers perfect print results with either 203 or 300 dpi print resolu­tion over a total print width of up to 6 inches. It prints up to 1,000 labels at 203 dpi in less than 9 minutes.

On being asked if the GST has had any impact on the overall business senti­ment, Abraham said that the new tax regime has led to some disruption in cash flow process which has led to overall slowdown in orders. “There is slowdown in business, definitely, of close to 30%,” he stated.

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 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.
