Make in India’ was a strong theme for Monotech Systems, which demonstrated multiple solutions for the label industry at the Labelexpo India 2022 show held in Greater Noida from 10-13 November.
“Make in India for the world was the underlying theme at our stand. We have made major progress towards that goal and that was seen at this year’s Labelexpo India. Monotech now has a complete range of solutions for label printing, embellishment, and variable data printing,” TP Jain, owner of Monotech Systems, told Packaging South Asia during the show.
The company showcased a number of printing and finishing machines, including its new Colornovo Hybrid, which is equipped with seven-color digital UV inkjet printing technology, and Tracesci, which is a track-and-trace solution. It also launched the ColorAqua Hybrid, an economical high-resolution’ variable data printing solution with an online inspection system. The Delhi-headquartered Wonderpac booked a ColorAqua Hybrid on the first day of the expo.
Growth in digital technology
Jain said the adoption of digital technology in India has been increasing rapidly in the recent past after a slow start. “Digital is now a well-established technology, not only in the label converting industry but in the Indian packaging industry overall. Digital is everywhere at Labelexpo India 2022. During the last event in 2018, digital was just a buzzword. This time it is a reality. You can see so many digital printing solution providers at the show. The benefits of digital technology are now widely appreciated and the pace of adoption is accelerating,” Jain said.
The proliferation of start-ups and home-grown enterprises has spurred the demand for short-run labeling jobs, Jain said. “The labeling requirements of these new-age brands can be easily and economically met with digital technology,” he added.
A great expo for Monotech
The event, which happened after a gap of four years, was excellent for Monotech. “This year’s Labelexpo has been very successful for us. We were able to book a good number of orders. Our team met existing and potential customers. It was great being at the expo this year,” Jain concluded.
