TRESU to showcase optimized ink flow systems

Controlled ink supply solutions from Tresu at Sino Corrugated 2017

TRESU F10-iCon ink supply system

TRESU Group will participate at Sino Corrugated 2017 from 11-14 April 2017, which takes place in Shanghai, China. The company will showcase the recently developed carbon fiber doctor blade chamber and F10 iCon – ink supply system for flexo printing of corrugated cardboard. TRESU Group offers flexible, customized solutions for flexo printing machines and ancillary products for flexo, digital and offset presses. The company boasts of a wealth of experience and expertise in the development and production of engineered solutions for this industry and supplies to end-customers, OEMs and partners. With more than 98% of the production being exported, TRESU Group is a strong player in the global market.

Automated ink regulation and cleaning with F10 iCon ink supply system

The F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity from the bucket to the flexo press, thereby maintaining constant, predetermined ink density values throughout production runs. Additionally, when ink changes are required, the supply system provides fast, thorough automatic cleaning of the chamber, and returns the remaining content to the bucket for reuse in subsequent jobs. The F10 iCon provides simultaneous ink change cycles on printing stations in minutes, resulting in significant time and materials savings per job.

Chamber doctor blade program: Uniform quality print and easy handling

TRESU’s chamber doctor blade systems, especially when used in conjunction with the F10 iCon ink supply system, offer further efficiency and quality benefits. The TRESU chamber program includes lightweight, corrosion-resistant carbon fiber and ceramic variants, and covers all flexo printing situations, including print widths exceeding 6000 mm (236 inch) often visible in corrugated print. TRESU chamber doctor blades prevent leakage and air contamination, thereby ensuring clean, blister-free print results with fast drying characteristics, better reflection and higher gloss values. When doctor blades need replacing, TRESU’s patented clamping systems enable changeovers in less than 2 minutes.

MaxiPrint Chamber Concept for fastest cleaning cycles

For web applications between 1600 mm and 6000 mm, the MaxiPrint Concept is a lightweight carbon-fiber or ceramic chamber, with integrated inking and cleaning systems for fast cleaning cycles. It features integrated cleaning nozzles with robustly designed water-shot mechanism for efficient cleaning of the chamber and anilox roll during the cleaning cycle. Relatively fast emptying occurs because ink or coating fluid is evacuated through both the chamber’s inlet and outlet. The ink change and cleaning cycle are typically completed within approximately 5 minutes.

Based in Beijing, TRESU’s China subsidiary offers fast-response technical support and smooth management of ink supply retrofitting projects that can significantly enhance the performance of existing printing lines. Gray Chang, sales and technical manager, TRESU China comments, “For China’s packaging suppliers, achieving greater process efficiency is of paramount importance, to control rising production costs. TRESU’s controlled ink supply solutions with light-weight, durable carbon fiber chambers are ideal for meeting the market’s  challenges—automating and eliminating waste from the process while providing
the basis for higher print speeds without compromising quality.”

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!
