Print providers, designers and marketers in India will get a closer look at the business building opportunities presented by the Xerox Iridesse Production Press at its Stand G-9, Hall 9 of Printpack show from 1 to 6 February 2019. Iridesse is the only digital press that can print metallic gold or silver dry ink, CMYK and clear or white dry ink in a single pass, giving print providers an immediate competitive edge in the growing digital print enhancement market.

According to Keypoint Intelligence-InfoTrends, digital print enhancement can result in a rapid return on investment as print service providers’ profit margins on such embellishments can be as high as 50 to 400 per cent. Iridesse raises the bar in the digital photo and printing world with high-value inline capabilities that allow customers to combine stunning imagery and options to alternate with four specialty colors, namely, gold, silver, clear and white, along with the ability to print on media up to 13 x 47.2 inches or 1.2 meters.

“The launch of our flagship device, the Iridesse Production Press, and the overwhelming response received from customers is surely one of the key highlights from 2018,” said Vineet Gehani, director, technology and channels, Xerox India. “We’re focused on developing the technology and solutions our customers need to boost business opportunities and drive revenue to new heights – and Iridesse is the perfect example as it helps our customers lead the way in beyond CMYK printing.”

The Xerox Versant 180 and 3100 Presses: Mid-production color presses with a unique combination of HD image quality, greater media latitude and higher duty cycles for more productivity and performances.

The Xerox Color C70: an entry-level production press that provides application versatility and professional image quality.

The Xerox D95A Copier/Printer: Exceptional monochrome print quality giving customers the power to print more for less.

“Printpack has always been an important platform for us to bring to our customers our marquee devices,” said Gehani. “In addition to the Iridesse, I’m extremely proud to share we are demonstrating an array of our key digital presses which are perfectly tailored for high-end, mid-range and entry-level businesses and are going to change the way the industry looks at production presses.”

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 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.
