APL also demonstrated an innovative Edge band UV print, which is a product developed in-house, to do value-addition jobs on edge band, like embossing, printing and UV coating. For round- and rectangular-shaped containers, APL showcased its dry offset press—a hot selling product—and Rotary screen press.

Speaking to Packaging South Asia at the show, Abhishek Paul, director at APL said, “We are euphoric with the response at the event and so far, we have been able to make a good number of sales here. We have sold around 8 Edge band presses and 14 dry offset presses. The dry offset press allows doing 4-color print in a single shot on any round containers like ice cream cups and food containers. The prime reason for such a positive response, I think, is a growing need for effective branding that can elevate the product or business into something unique from other competitors. Rotary screen press is used to print on the crate, battery, ice boxes and square buckets. It can be used to print on small quantity as low as 500 pieces, and there is hardly any wastage while printing. So far, the response is better than drupa, Pamex or any other show; it has been the best show for us.”
