At interpack, Esko will be located in Hall 6, where it shares stand A01 with its sister companies VideoJet, Laetus and X-Rite Pantone. “Together with our Danaher partners, we will be presenting a full range of innovative solutions that address global packaging management challenges across a complex global production supply chain,” says Niels Stenfeldt, VP EMEA and global brand owner sales at Esko.

Color consistency assures quality

interpackAt the Esko stand at interpack, visitors will learn how to better manage brand color accuracy and consistency across the global supply chain – from proof to package to display – in a smart and comprehensive manner with the ability to leverage the benefits of fixed color palette printing using dedicated color solutions including Esko Equinox and other Danaher solutions. Using X-Rite Pantone’s ColorCert Suite, brands and converters can remotely monitor color consistency in real-time across a global base of suppliers, reducing rejects and the need for on-site press checks and improving overall color quality. By taking advantage of PantoneLIVE, brands can securely and reliably provide access to a cloud-based library of digital color specifications to authorized stakeholders to remove ambiguity from the communication of color across even the most complex supply chain, and converters can better manage ink inventories and color consistency. Pantone representatives will also be on hand to discuss the latest tools and color references available from the world’s acknowledged expert in color. Esko color solutions can be deployed in all packaging and label print technologies: flexo, digital, offset and gravure.

 

Hitting brand colors with digital print

At interpack, Esko will also be featured in the HP stand, demonstrating how Esko solutions integrate with HP SmartStream and the HP Indigo workflow to ensure accurate reproduction of brand colors using a fixed palette of digital toners as well as offering HP Indigo customers the ability to print color-accurate files using CMY only, without the need to use black toner, increasing throughput and reducing cost.

Esko will present its leading and highly innovative solutions for producing high quality, consistent print results with flexographic printing, the most cost-effective print technology for the packaging industry. Packaging converters visiting the Esko stand will see the stunning results that are achieved with labels, folding cartons, and flexible and corrugated packaging using Esko’s broad array of flexo tools and solutions, including its award-winning CDI Crystal 5080 XPS flexo platemaking solution that reduces the number of steps and overall footprint required to produce the highest quality flexographic plates.

3D Design for faster approval and go-to-market

Brand owners and retailers will see how they can experience the highest possible realism during the packaging development process by using Esko’s 3D technologies, including ArtiosCAD, Studio and Store Visualizer, to present hyper-realistic 3D images of packages from design through consumer testing to palletizing and positioning on store shelves.

Sustainable logistics through smart design

Visitors to the stand will also learn how to reduce costs with sustainable packaging by using Esko Cape solutions to optimize packaging logistics throughout the supply chain – including secondary packaging, palletization, and loading of trucks and containers.

“Our interpack team is prepared and looks forward to attending the show,” Steinfeldt concludes. “We’re excited about the opportunity to start conversations with brand and packaging professionals about how Esko solutions can help them improve their operations. We will have brand management and product experts on hand to inform visitors how Esko and its partners address the challenges they are facing with proven solutions that live up to our tagline: Packaging Simplified.

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.
