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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
