MPS has introduced its new E-Sleeve technology at Labelexpo Brussels at its Stand 11C20, with key features presented in live demonstrations on the EF SYMJET hybrid press.

Designed as a superior alternative to traditional sleeves that use compressible material, the new MPS E-Sleeve enables printers to generate predictable results at increased speeds, with guaranteed quality tolerances and more reliable production cost calculations.

“Flexographic printing sleeves play a critical role in the overall flexo printing process, as they have a major influence on print efficiency and quality,” said Bert van den Brink, MPS co-founder. “We saw the need to change from sleeves that use an aero-mounting principle with a compressible inner core, to design with precise concentricity across the entire plate for optimum print results. It’s a game-changer for the printing industry!”

Key features of the MPS E-Sleeve include optimum pressure settings to avoid unnecessary bouncing, precise concentric runout properties, constant parallelism for ideal register across the entire print length and increased dimensional accuracy for optimum register between all colors and die stations. With a reduced weight, MPS E-Sleeves provide easier and faster job changeovers and lower lifetime tooling costs through improved durability.

The company has also launched a wider version (17 inch/430 millimeter) hybrid MPS EF SYMJET press integrated with the new Domino N617i unit. The press is equipped with five flexo stations, digital cold foil, a Kurz cold foil unit for single images and optical effects, lamination and die-cutting.

The main theme on the company’s Stand 11C20 at Labelexpo is ‘Beyond the Machine,’ where visitors will learn more about the company and its strengths in four key processes – in connectivity, applications, productivity, and service.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
