BST eltromat showed its innovative and time-proven solutions for quality management and control, as well as the networked automation of sub-processes in the web-based flexible products. The broad range of web guiding and quality assurance modules are connected to the iPQ-Center, an integration and control method that is able to customize specific inspection tasks such as 100% defect detection, inspection and color monitoring as well data collection. At a separate stand, BST’s ProControl subsidiary showed the group’s innovative solutions for overall system management.

BST eltromat showed its ultrasonic and optical web edge sensors, wide-array sensors and digital sensors. The multi-functional, versatile CCD CAM 100 line scan camera covers large measuring widths without any moving parts. The high performance line scan camera can be easily integrated and operated with great ease. BST eltromat also presented its web guiding systems including the CompactGuide for narrow web presses and its proven SmartGuide systems for wide web machines and presses.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
