ABG to show Fast Track die

Labelexpo Americas 2016

ABG’s Fast Track die is a semi-rotary diecutting system running at 150 metres a minute

Vinsak, the leading distributor of AB Graphics at India region, will be present at Stand 3223 in Labelexpo Americas 2016 which will be held at Donald E Stephens Convention Centre
from 13 to 15 September in Rosemont, USA. “The label and packaging market has changed a lot in recent years and we monitor it closely, trying to predict what will help label converters grow their businesses. Since the launch of the Digicon Series 3 two years ago,
we have seen phenomenal uptake for this technology, in particular high-end specifications with emphasis being placed on time saving and automation modules,” says Tony Bell, sales director for ABG.

On display will be the newly launched Fast Track die, a semi-rotary diecutting system running at 150 metres a minute. There will be a full beverage specification Digicon Series 3 with ABG’s Big Foot 50 tonne hot foiling and embossing module. ABG will also show its full range of automation modules – Auto die load and unload, Autoslit and Iscore – plus a second hot foil unit and flatbed screen printing unit. Moreover, on display will be a JDF/JMF management information system supplying job information directly to the machine from prepress, and relaying job information directly back into the customer’s MIS. This is going to be shown both on a Digicon Series 3 and a Digilase Laser diecutting unit.

There will also be a Digicon Lite 3, ABG’s user-friendly, compact digital finishing solution. ABG’s Vectra, their market leading brand of turret rewinders, will also be showcased, featuring automated set up in the glueless models, saving hours of set up each week. Here a job can be set up in seconds, also through JDF/JMF files, without compromising their unique tension control and functionality. These will be demonstrated as an integrated solution on a Digicon Series 3, and also as a standalone unit with ABG’s compact unwind, bowl feeder and automatic core loader – demonstrating the flexibility of use for label converters.

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.
