At Labelexpo Europe 2019, flexo equipment and machine manufacturer Tresu Group will present an expanded range of chamber doctor blades and supply systems for automating ink flow in label and package printing. The company will also provide information about its strengthened customer care program that helps flexo printers maximize machine time and customize retrofittable flexo units for integration with narrow-web coating and printing lines.

Tresu chamber doctor blade systems, in widths from 185 mm to 6000 mm, feature patented rubber seals, controlling pressure while preventing leakage and air contamination enabling clean, blister-free print with fast drying characteristics and improved gloss values at faster print speeds. Chambers are available in carbon fiber form, featuring light-weight and optimum corrosion resistance, while ceramic and aluminum alternatives are also available for various applications.

The Tresu FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber, for widths up to 800 mm wide, includes an optimized reservoir, needing no connected pump. Ink may be added without press stoppages.

Also exhibited will be Tresu’s new carbon fiber D3P chamber for paperboard and flexible packaging flexo applications. The chamber provides clean doctoring when working with anilox roll diameters that are common with these applications, and features a smooth ink-repellent internal surface. These features enable controlled ink flow and thus consistent quality prints, at speeds of up to 800 m/min.

Tresu supply systems automatically control flow, pressure level and color density, to provide consistent print quality without air contamination, and thorough, fast, simultaneous chamber-cleaning. As part of the automatic cleaning, a high proportion of the unused ink can be returned to the bucket, resulting in significant long-term ink savings. The chambers can be retrofitted as an upgrade of existing equipment. Tresu’s F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity, maintaining constant ink density values.

Furthermore, Tresu strengthens its Customer Care program that provides ancillary and machine customers with a comprehensive, ongoing support package to maximise machine uptime and assure consistent quality. Services provided include 24/7 support, machine and equipment upgrades, life cycle management, proactive diagnostics to boost performance, and a fast supply of consumable products and spare parts, optionally through an enhanced webshop. 

There will also be information about Tresu’s high performing printing machines and retrofittable solutions for virtually any application, such as printing, coating and gluing units along with hot-air dryers for existing machines.

Henrik Kristensen, vice president, Tresu Ancillary and Customer Care says, “Faster delivery times, customization and stringent quality standards are now the norm in label and packaging supply chains. Tresu’s program of ancillary and retrofittable flexo systems, backed up with comprehensive global customer care, provides the flexo printer with a firm basis for automating processes, reducing setup times, eliminating waste and assuring predictable, repeatable results.  Visitors to Labelexpo are advised to schedule an appointment at the show to discover how this offering can be customized to optimize value for their business.”

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.
