BALDWIN’s new Vision Systems at INFOFLEX 2018

Automated print quality solutions for flexible packaging


BALDWIN Vision Systems, a new business segment of BALDWIN Technology Company Inc., will demonstrate its color management and defect detection technology at INFOFLEX 2018, to be held from 7 to 8 May in Indianapolis, Indiana. BALDWIN Vision Systems will be present at Stands 511 and 125 at the show.

Karl Fritchen, president of BALDWIN Vision Systems, says, “The flexible packaging industry faces ever-growing demands for color perfection and defect-free production—from brand owners and printers alike. We are eager to demonstrate our automated workflow solutions at INFOFLEX! Our aim is to simplify workflows and help printers easily manage increasingly complex requirements. At the same time, our technology provides a fast return on investment and will make a major impact on printers’ bottom lines.”

In late 2017, both QuadTech and PC Industries were acquired by  BALDWIN Technology Company. Fritchen adds, “Being part of a larger organization means more diverse technical capabilities under one company umbrella. As a new print technology powerhouse, we can offer higher volume and a wider variety of options that fit our customers’ processes and budgets. Our product offerings are now stronger and more complete, and by being available to more markets, through more offices, agents, and service operations, we have already won new business with our combined portfolio.”

Among the products featured at Stand 511 will be ColorTrack, is a unique color management software for flexo and gravure packaging applications, and a highly adaptive “color expert in a box” solution for packaging printers; Color Measurement with DeltaCam, which makes advanced, inline spectral measurement affordable for individual packaging print houses; Inspection System on ICON, which provides  true  100% inspection on 100% of print or non-print product—100% of the time.

Among the products featured at Stand 125 will be Guardian PQV, which is an advanced inspection system for pharmaceutical, converting, label, flexo, wide, and narrow web applications; Guardian OLP, which is a PDF proofing and off-line inspection system that can automatically find and highlight differences in print quality from an approved master image; Graphic-Vision 500 Series web viewers, which are easy-to-use systems designed with industrial, high-performance parts. These systems feature long-lasting LED lighting, making them perfect for high-speed applications. Another BALDWIN Technology Company, AMS Spectral UV, will showcase LED and UV curing solutions at Stand 224.

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.
