The new press has width of 350mm

Leading British designer and manufacturer of printing and converting machinery, Edale Ltd has launched its latest addition to its FL range of flexographic label presses. The FL1 PRIME is built on the fundamentals of its bigger brother, the FL3, and is designed to give customers affordable, high-quality label printing with absolutely minimal waste. The target market is businesses that want a logical replacement or addition to the older mechanical presses used within the narrow web printing market or do not require the advanced automation of the FL3.

With a width of 350mm, it has features such as servo-driven technology as standard and the world-renowned Uniprint printhead design geometry, as well as pre and auto-register. The PRIME is modular and upgradable, with options to install EZ Reg and EZ Die as well as LED UV curing.

James Boughton, managing director, Edale comments: “We noticed a gap in the market for those businesses who wanted an affordable ‘step up’ to a press which gives technological advancement and efficiencies and delivers superior print quality. The FL1 PRIME modular design can be upgraded to suit the businesses’ growth when they need it.”

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.
