The All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP) has announced a short three-month training course in 3D printing and printed electronics at Beijing Institute of Graphics Communication (BIGC) for print professionals, teachers and students. AIFMP has taken this initiative keeping in mind the future trends and lack of proper training in these sectors in India.

Speaking on the occasion, Kamal Chopra, president, AIFMP said, “BIGC is the world’s largest university imparting education in printing. AIFMP recently signed an agreement with BIGC to provide specialist training in 3D printing and also in printing electronics.” He added that this training, recommended by AIFMP, will be provided at highly subsidized fees. An independent board will select the candidates to be enrolled as students in the course.

The training will be provided to a batch consisting of 18 students and there will be no minimum age criterion. Anyone with knowledge of English can join this course. Training for the first batch will commence in May while the second batch will start in September. The last date of registration will be two months before the start of the group.

The course will include lectures, demonstrations and practice workshops. Visit to printing firms will also be part of the curriculum.

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.
