10-color Soma Flex Imperia for printing on laminates and pouchesSecond Soma flexo press installed at PabexSoma Engineering has announced the installation of a second Soma press at a Polish flexible packaging converter, PPHU Pabex. The new 1,050 mm wide, 10-color Soma Flex Imperia press will be used to produce high quality printing on laminates and pouches for the food industry and joins an existing 8-color Soma Flex MIDI press supplied seven years ago.
The 1,050 mm wide, 10-color Soma Flex Imperia press will be used to produce high quality printing on laminates and pouches for the food industryAdam Filipczyk, one of the four co-owners of Pabex said, “We decided on
the purchase of the Imperia based on the consistent reliability and
problem free operation of the first Soma press that even after seven
years, is still producing high quality work to meet customer
expectations. High quality engineering at a competitive price and Soma’s
ability to react quickly and flexibly to our needs in terms of service
and support also influenced our decision.”

Esko introduces Kongsberg specialty tools 3Pabex specializes in
offering individual tailored solutions for food packaging as well as
supplying products for larger commercial channels such as Lidl and
Biedronka. The emphasis is always on the production of high quality
graphics and the integrity of its products to maintain shelf-life. “The
high performance Imperia provides us with a platform to fine tune the
flexo printing process to gravure and offset level,” adds Filipczyk. “We
aim to refine the printing processes on this press by the end of this
year to the extent that customers will not recognize flexo quality from
gravure or offset. The new press is twice as fast as the first and its
operating speed is almost 400 metre a minute on 8 to 10-color jobs. Our
printers are happy with the operating parameters of the machine. Taking
into account a few months learning curve, we anticipate the competitive
advantages of the new press will be fully visible after two years.”

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.
