Xsys will showcase its latest flexo print production innovations in Labelexpo Americas 2022.

Xsys is pleased to announce its participation at Labelexpo Americas on 13–15 September 2022. The show gears up to make a welcome return to the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Appearing on Stand 929, Hall A, in collaboration with our North American distributor partner Anderson & Vreeland, Xsys will highlight its latest flexo print production innovations.

“At Labelexpo, we will be focusing our attention on just how our best-in-class solutions can allow converters to be brilliant, deliver for their customers and stay competitive through these challenging times,” said Dan Rosen, sales director of National Accounts, North America. “It will be absolutely fantastic to meet the industry again at the show, which is one of those key events that we all look forward to. I always come away with a lot of energy after face-to-face interaction with our customers, and I know the rest of the team feels the same way.”

The nyloflex Xpress Thermal Processing System will take center stage in the Stand to demonstrate how plate makers can achieve better and more consistent quality, faster production and easier handling of flexo plates. With plates ready in less than one hour, the system can help reduce press downtime to meet brand owners’ demands for a faster time to market. There are also significant sustainability benefits with thermal plates; for instance, nyloflex Xpress cuts down dramatically on energy usage, reducing costs by as much as 94% compared to solvent processing.

Xsys is the only supplier to manufacture all its plates, imagers and processors as well as sleeves and adapters in-house, giving the company full control of the whole production process and the ability to deliver more coherent service and support. As number 1 or 2 in most of the segments its serves, Xsys has the widest portfolio of products and brands, which includes nyloflex solvent and nyloflex Xpress thermal plates and equipment, nyloprint letterpress plates and equipment, nylosolv washout solvent, rotec sleeves and adapters, ThermoFlexX TfxX Imagers, ThermoFlexX Catena Plate Processing equipment, and Woodpecker surface screening solutions.

Before the show, the North American team spoke about its commitment to the label and packaging industry and how the separation from Flint Group has sharpened its focus. “As Xsys, we are a stronger and more focused unit that can respond quickly to our customers and any market changes,” said managing director for Plates, Eric Gibbs. “We can also guarantee that our plates and equipment will work seamlessly throughout your prepress process and in the pressroom, simply because we design, engineer and manufacture all our own plates, sleeves, adapters and platemaking equipment. That is a unique offering in the market, which our customers benefit enormously.”

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!
