IST Metz and Rotometal at Labelexpo India 2018

The compact design of the new LEDcure SCR by IST Metz makes it simple to integrate and flexible in use, as well as easy to access

At Labelexpo India, taking place from 22 to 25 November in New Delhi, IST Metz is releasing a specially designed retrofit concept for rotary and flexo presses called LEDcure SCR. This concept is designed by experts with more than 40 years of experience in installing UV onto rotary or flexo presses. LEDcure SCR fits perfectly the needs for the production of labels and can easily be integrated into a new or existing press.

IST has long been globally recognized for providing the highest performance, reliable and long lasting UV platform in the traditional UV curing arena, which is called LAMPcure. Now, UV specialist IST Metz, provides the same attributes on the LED side, something the industry has been anxious to experience.

Compact. Modular. Powerful.

The length of the system can be freely scaled (90 – 540 mm) and also adapted to suit all requirements of rotary and flexo presses. The new LEDcure is the final element in the completely re-engineered range of LED solutions supplied by IST in collaboration with its subsidiary Integration Technology Ltd. (ITL). Synergies between the two companies have an increasing impact here – like the XT8 booster, for instance. XT8 booster technology means that the LEDcure has up to 30% more output than currently on the market available LED systems. The LEDcure SCR is supplied as fully configured package including cables, power supply, control and chiller, full light shielding and interlocking for total safety compliance. The system will be installed by experienced IST technicians.

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.
