Entry level solution for web guide regulationBST eltromat to showcase EcoGuideAt Labelexpo Europe, which will be held from 29 September to 2 October 2015 in Brussels, Belgium, BST eltromat International will focus on the areas of 100% inspection, workflow, web monitoring and color measurement and web guide regulation. Ingo Ellerbrock, product manager, BST eltromat, says, “The trend in label printing is increasingly going in the direction of standardized, extendable compact solutions. At Labelexpo we will present our cost saving entry level solution for web guide regulation with EcoGuide amongst others. Moreover, we are combining a wide array sensor from our subsidiary AccuWeb, USA with our tried and tested controller ekr 500 digital for the first time. These wide array sensors have large measurement areas to electronically compensate for changes in the web width, and therefore make mechanical adjustments and or manual alignments of the sensors superfluous.”

Apart from the latest developments in web guide regulation, the tried and tested BST eltromat systems CompactGuide and SmartGuide, the digital sensor CLS Pro 600 and the current ekr controller generation will also be displayed. Moreover, BST eltromat is showing its innovative solution for the measurement of absolute color values with the iPQ-Spectral. In addition, a further process sequence will be introduced, which was developed in cooperation with coe, a renowned company in the pre-print stage with headquarters in Bremen and Stuttgart.

Dirk Volkening, product manager, BST eltromat, says, “iPQ-Check, the module of the iPQ-Center for the 100% print image inspection, now has new, self-developed high performance LED lighting. This means that the module is suitable for printing flexible packaging, opaque (lightproof) and reflective materials and normal paper.”

“We are not short on innovations,” says Volkening. This also includes the Shark 4000 Lex. The flexible, adjustable 100% inspection system for use on rewinders and narrow web printing machines will support the iPQ-Workflow from now on. “Of course, all data will still be recorded, for example, on the customer server and can be viewed on any PC. But due to the fact that the focus is on the important data when evaluating the minutes, the rewinder only stops at the process relevant points. In this way, the production can be run at maximum speed. This means a significant process improvement.”

Video web monitoring

BST eltromat will be showcasing one of the most economic models for video web monitoring –  the PowerScope 4000. The operation of the system primarily conceived for label printing and other narrow web applications, is now even more user-friendly. “We have taken on an established operating element from our large solutions, and added a joystick to the PowerScope 4000. This makes the operating concept of the rotatable and removable keyboard and touchscreen even more flexible, and the handling even more intuitive,” says Kauczor. “But that is not all. Not by a long shot. In future, the PowerScope 4000 will have the optional possibility of recording a freely configurable order history.”

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 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.
