On the first day of Printpack 2019, Bobst India announced signing of a deal to supply an Experfold folder-gluer with Speedwave to Mumbai-based printing packaging major TCPL. This will be the second Expertfold at TCPL with the Speedwave feature. The machine is currently being displayed at Bobst India’s stand at Printpack 2019.

“With the new Expertfold, TCPL will augment its converting capacity. The main reason why the company went in for the Expertfold with Speedwave feature is that they wanted to enhance productivity for their crash lock bottom jobs and for jobs like cavity boxes and boxes with hangers. The Speedwave feature also brings in much easier setting with minimal stoppages during production,” says Venugopal Menon of Bobst India.

During the announcement of the deal, Saket Kanoria and Akshay Kanoria of TCPL, along with other officials from TCPL, were present at the Bobst India stand.

Bobst India is demonstrating two machines at its Printpack stand, one being the Expertfold folder-gluer with Speedwave, which has been sold to TCPL, and the other the new generation Novacut 106E 3.0 die-cutter. TCPL has also placed an order for two Novacut 106 E 3.0 die cutters. In addition to the two machines, Bobst’s business unit – services is also showcasing new product and solution offerings to existing Bobst customers.

At Printpack, Bobst India is in Hall 9, Stand E35/E36.

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!
