Digital printing solutions provider Domino displayed a number of innovative printing solutions at the Labelexpo India 2022 show in Greater Noida – highlighting the K300 variable data printer and demonstrating the flagship K600i printer. Domino partnered with UV Graphics for the event.

“Our highlight was the K300 high-speed variable data printer that can print at 250 meters per minute. This was the first time ever Domino demonstrated the K300 anywhere in the world outside its facility. We showed the flagship K600i digital inkjet printer that can print at 150 meters per minute with 600X600 dpi resolution. At the show, we integrated the press with a slitter rewinder from UV Graphics. The press has an inspection system installed,” Ajay RaoRane, vice-president sales, digital printing, told Packaging South Asia.

Domino also displayed the hybrid solution N610i press, which was integrated with a UV line from UV Graphics and was demonstrated at the latter’s booth.

“We called the entire solution Dominator and it was successfully run at the UV Graphics booth. This was the first time we showed a full hybrid line in India. This line can do digital embellishment, conventional embellishment, semi-rotary die-cutting, web viewing, cold foiling before and after digital, among others. This solution offers a lot of possibilities to label convertors,” RaoRane said.

An exciting show

Domino’s stall was buzzing with visitors. RaoRane says the fact that the event was taking place after four years was a reason enough for the industry to be excited.

“We are very happy with the response we got at the expo. The visitors were impressed with the solutions we displayed at our booth as well as at the UV Graphics stand. They liked the samples produced at both the stalls,” RaoRane concluded.

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.
