manroland web to focus on packaging printing – Hall 14 Stand 32-35

manroland web will promote its Cromoman 4x1 webfed press at PrintPack 2017

manroland web systems is all geared up to set a new benchmark for webfed printing presses featuring the latest in automation and technology for the growing packaging and printing industry. Depending on applications ranging from board to foil printing, the company has an optimized arrangement of presses with offset, flexo and gravure printing units in hybrid configuration. The established PECOM-X drive, operation and workflow management system is the basis for combining various components from manroland web systems to form a one-system solution.

manroland web systems has planned an elaborate presence at the upcoming PrintPack 2017. The company would be focusing on areas such as packaging printing, CROMOMAN 4X1, retrofits and upgrades, such as inline density control, inline registration control, press consumables such as blankets, rollers and press chemistry, as well as print services. In addition, manroland would venture into service of non-manroland presses and Novexx Solutions for print and apply solutions for the label market.

cosmoThe company believes that its longstanding experience in highly automated offset printing offers its clients in the packaging sector new possibilities for staying competitive and allows them to react to the increasing demands of the market. This would mean ever-shorter print runs, increasing price pressure, consistently high printing quality, reproducibility, just-in-time production, sustainability and an overruling machine intelligence through networking of processes and systems. The company also added that the most modern manroland web systems pre-setting, regulating and control systems enable waste reduction of double-digit figures. Industry 4.0 is reality in the new packaging printing press from day one.

Commenting on the effect of demonetization drive, the company said that the move has affected the printers in general but not the press manufactures as such. For 2017, manroland web systems India expects to install additional towers in some of its newspaper customers, although some customers may or hold back some decisions.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
