At All in Print China, Valco Melton will display its newly acquired line of microglue products by GMS-VanSco and the EcoStitch

At this year’s All in Print China, Valco Melton (Stand A218, Hall N2) will put on display its newly acquired line of microglue products by GMS-VanSco and the EcoStitch. The EcoStitch hot melt system offers a sustainable concept for hot melt dispensing by reducing adhesive usage, improving production line efficiency, and eliminating consumable parts and downtime. This eco-conscious valve can reduce adhesive usage up to 75% for instant return on investment with payback in as little as four months.

The microgluer line of products provides customers with a range of high-performance hot melt and cold glue dispensing systems and accessories that have been designed to meet the unique application requirements of direct mail, paperboard converting and print finishing markets. The microgluer saves time by folding, gluing and perforating in one operation as well as reducing production costs by eliminating the need for envelope inserting. Furthermore, microgluer eliminates expensive pressure sensitive forms and minimizes your mail costs by simplifying and streamlining self-mailing applications.

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 growing 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!
