Vetaphone at Labelexpo Europe 2019, Stand 7E28

Narrow web surface treatment solutions

Vetaphone Web Cleaner

Vetaphone, a supplier of corona and plasma treatment technologies, will be exhibiting four machines at Labelexpo in Brussels taking place between 23 and 26 September 2019. For those looking for narrow web surface treatment, the company will be showing two corona stations ‒ the VE1A-A (C4) which features four ceramic electrodes and is designed for single-sided treatment, and the newly launched VE1A-M (C8) which is designed for complex substrates and applications where high corona power is required from a single unit. Fitted with eight ceramic electrodes, the new C8 is capable of operating at running speeds in excess of 300 meters per minute.

Both models are both CE and UL approved and are developed for non-stop production and easy maintenance. Also new to the Vetaphone portfolio is a range of web cleaners that are designed to complement the company’s corona stations. On display will be a VE2A-W (double-sided) and VE1A-W (single-sided) unit, available in four widths from 350 millimeters to 570 millimeters and capable of running at 250 meters per minute.

The intelligent design and use of high-quality elastomer cleaner rolls and perforated adhesive rolls ensures that all contamination is removed. The units are easy to access for cleaning and maintenance and can be fully integrated with the corona system via the icorona generator, eliminating the need for any additional operating system.

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!
