At Plastindia 2015 BST eltromat showcased a host of products and received a very good response from visitors. The products on display were the twin_check 2.0 inspection system, regi_star 20 register control system, Clean Master cleaning system for rotogravure cylinders, Superhandy Scan 4000 web inspection system and Wintriss surface inspection system.

The twin_check 2.0 is a component of eltromat’s iPQ_solutions. This tool combines print quality inspection with web monitoring of the complete print format. Packing printing as well as the decor, wallpaper and label printing are typical areas of applications for twin_check 2.0. It can also be used for defect detection on rewinders, cross cutters and slitters. The regi_star 20 register control system guarantees a high degree of automation and reduces set up times and waste.

Superhandy Scan 4000 is a PC-based system with a high-resolution digital camera which offers well engineered technology, a space saving single-monitor concept, pin-sharp image quality, various image monitoring options and equipment. It has a system for numerous inspection requirements. Clean Master ensures thorough cleaning of a print cylinder without any risks as manual cleaning poses great safety risk. “This is the first Indian show after the merger of BST and eltromat in July 2014. Plastindia is great platform to relaunch and promote the new entity in India and the response here has been extremely good,” said Bharvi Shukla, business development manager, BST eltromat India.

“The start of Plastindia 2015 was great as we managed to close some important deals
in the first two days. Two major OEMs manufacturing roto gravure printing machines placed orders for four register control systems. We also sold a Wintriss surface inspection system to Max India,” said Tappan Patel, managing director, BST eltromat India.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
