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 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
