Trelleborg to display offset blankets for newspaper – Hall 10 Stand F35-37


Aisitors to the forthcoming PrintPack India exhibition will have the opportunity to hear about the latest range of Trelleborg offset blankets for the newspaper, commercial print and packaging sectors from several local dealers. The company’s industry-leading Vulcan products can be seen on the stands of Viva Graphics (Hall 10, F65) as well as Krishna Graphics (Hall 3, B2C), while the Rollin range will be displayed by Nulith (Hall 10, F70) and Integra Graphics (Hall 10, F77–80). Maniraju Bora, sales and technical director – South West Asia, says, “The Indian market is an increasingly important one for Trelleborg, which has invested a great deal of time and effort during the last year to strengthen its position. In addition to ensuring that there is a solid network of dealers throughout the country, Trelleborg has improved its own infrastructure to deliver quality products and services. We’ve received excellent support from the Italian headquarters of Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation, where the R&D team works closely with us to produce blanket solutions that match the requirements of the Indian print industry. Technical experts from Italy have called on many Indian customers to obtain feedback on blanket performance and this level of ‘share and care’ has been greatly appreciated by printers.”

Visitors to PrintPack will see new blankets and products for the first time in India, including the Vulcan Irio, a pre-coating blanket designed for use during pre-coating and cold foil applications. The new Vulcan Sunrise and Rollin Suntech are 1.95 mm blankets designed for the latest UV applications, such as LE/HUV and LED UV. Providing all of the benefits of the Dynatech System, such as excellent smash and edge mark resistance plus better vibration absorption, the new blankets enable first-class solids and halftone reproduction, eliminating ink back-trapping and embossing.

Bora continues, “We have some excellent products for the newspaper market, such as the neutral-feed Vulcan 202 and the highly resistant Rollin Hi-Page Plus, which are both industry flagship products in some parts of the world. All of our dealers at PrintPack India will display Trelleborg’s official distributor sign on their stands, which will make them easy tospot while walking around the halls. Representatives from Trelleborg will be available throughout the event and we look forward to discussing with printers how we can help to improve the effectiveness of their printing blankets.”

Bora will be one of the several industry leaders speaking at the forthcoming Print Business Outlook Conference 2017, on 5 February at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida. His talk is titled ‘New Age Printing Blankets for High Efficiency Printing.’ For further information on the product range displayed by Trelleborg dealers, go to–and–events/exhibitions–and–events/PrintPack–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 Asia is 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.
