Asahi to showcase its water-washable flexographic plate solutions

Asahi Photoproducts at Labelexpo Europe 2017

At Labelexpo Europe 2017, Asahi experts will be available to speak with visitors about fixed colour palette printing, which uses a fixed palette of up to seven inks to virtually eliminate the need for spot color inks

Asahi Photoproducts, a leading flexographic photopolymer plate developer, will showcase its water-washable flexographic plate solutions featuring Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer at Labelexpo Europe 2017, which will take place from 25-28 September 2017 in Brussels.

“At the show, our experts will be on hand to help visitors better understand how Asahi AWP plates can improve OEE and profitability without compromising on quality. Visitors to our stand will also be able to see printed application samples and get advice from our experts about the best plates for their individual needs,” says Akihiro Kato, managing director of Asahi Photoproducts Europe.

Asahi will also inform visitors about fixed color palette printing, which uses a fixed palette of up to seven inks to virtually eliminate the need for spot color inks. Because it uses a fixed set of inks, there is no wash-up required between jobs, and combo jobs are made easier.

“In our opinion,” adds Kato, “this is the future of flexography, especially for flexible packaging, and favorably positions flexography to compete with digital printing for all but the very shortest runs.” Asahi will be located on Stand 5A34 at the show.

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.
