Alliance Printech shows live demo of A3 flexo label press at Printpack 2019

First indigeneously produced machine with dual inking system

Jatinder Kumar Julka, CEO of Alliance Printech with visitors at Printpack 2019.

Alliance Printech, serving the printing, packaging, and converting industry for more than 11 years, has evolved to cater to the requirements of its customers by providing quality machines. At Printpack 2019, Alliance is showcasing a live demo of its latest flexo press — A3 Flexo Label Press — that has multiple substrate print capabilities for SA Label Stocks, PVC/PET/ BOPP films, metalized paper and films, and aluminum foil.

Jatinder Kumar Julka, chief executive officer of Alliance Printech says, “Printpack being a prestigious show that recieves visitor footfall in thousands, makes a good platform for us to display our flexo press. It presents us with a great opportunity to attract offset printers and packaging manufacturers who produce wraparound and shrink sleeve labels and flexible printers who may be looking for flexo presses for shorter runs.”

Talking about the A3 flexo label press, Julka explains, “It is the first indigeneously made machine equipped with dual capabilities that cannot be found in any other machine in India. The machine has an enclosed chamber and open inking system found in high-end European machines. Many Indian printers are unable to acquire those European machines owing to their high prices. The machine provides them the same benefits at lower prices.”

The flexo press manufacturer further explains that in India, there are many short-run requirements in the label industry which cannot be handled by regular press and the flexo press makes an ideal machine to print flexible labels in short quantities. Since the demands of the label indsutry change with consumer requirements, the manufacturers have to evolve to keep up with the changing environment. The flexo press manufacturer says that there are positive prospects for the machine in the label industry.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
