A version of the Layflat LF600 mB bookbinding system especially customized for the Indian market makes its first appearance at the PrintPack 2022 being held at the India Expo Centre. Designed for creating ‘layflat’ photo- and other – books, the India version accepts single-sided (simplex) prints/pages up to 18 x40.” It also provides box creasing that creates a gap inside the pages to provide space between pages to allow inserting samples in commercial sample catalog such as those used in the laminates or garment industries. 

The economical L600 mB is a semi-automatic book block system which converts manually-fed pre-folded and creased printed sheets of photographic or other media into a finished book block using special low-temperature hot melt glue for maximum strength. It has an output capacity of up to 600 pages/hour.

Also being demonstrated in the stand are two binders that employ patented V-Shape LayFlat binding technology to create layflat book blocks from double-sided (duplex) printed sheets. These machines are designed to eliminate the problem that typically occurs when creating photo books from pages that have unique surfaces such as texture paper, metallic paper, and luster paper. 

The fully automatic VS 650 All In is a compact multi-functional binding machine which provides the entire process of making the book block – from window cutting, hole punching, and hot glue laminating through to the auto cutting of the laminated sheets. It can create up to 650 pages/hour.  

The TL 400 VS is a compact manual-feed multi-functional slit and strip binding machine that includes lamination to produce a completely layflat book block for sheets up to 482mm x 482mm. More than twelve TL 400 VS systems are generating more business for printing facilities in 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 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.
