At All in Print China held from 18 to 22 October 2016, DMA Innotec showed a new engraving machine—the DMA R10 Series. The DMA R10 Series has full digital control and runs at constant 8 KHz engraving speed. The machine features First Full Cell (FFC) and Point to Point (PTP), which allows it to achieve fine texts and line works. The ONE PATH technology allows images and very small texts to be engraved in one path at 8 KHz, which improves the production efficiently.

According to Alexander Katz, chief technology officer, who we met at the exhibition, “For optimal productivity and quality, DMA R10 is integrated with the userfriendly Packz PDF based workflow editor from Hybrid Software for directly accepting PDF format. The cylinders engraved by DMA R10 have more ink volume and density and DMA R10 is compatible with the current engraving machines, which brings lots of advantages for the users.”

Katz added, “DMA Innotec is an innovative high-tech company group based in Germany and Taiwan. Our core competence lies in comprehensive know-how of the latest technologies in industrial process and control systems, electronic engraving and engraving head. DMA Innotec is driven by the customers’ demands and focused on R&D and applications of engraving technologies.” In India, DMA Innotec’s products are distributed by Insight Communication & Print Solution.

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 grown 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!
