Nilpeter’s FB-3300 produces pressure-sensitive labels with cold foil as well as metallic gold ink printed in gravure

At this year’s show in Delhi, Nilpeter (Stand F15) will show a FB-3300 servo press at Labelexpo India 2016 to be held at India Expo Centre in Greater Noida (Delhi NCR) from 17 to 20 November. The 6-color UV-flexo press with short web path features a gravure unit at the last printing unit – a value-adding unit for metallic inks, solids, and coatings; and a new rail-based cross-over unit that can be placed above any printing unit for total flexibility

The press is also equipped with the Corona treater, web cleaner, chill drums on all units, movable cold foil, APPS (Automatic Plate Positioning System), two die slots, and a 100% inspection system. The FB-3300S will produce pressure-sensitive labels with cold foil as well as metallic gold ink printed in gravure. Nilpeter will also demonstrate 2-ply coupon labels, as well as printing shrink sleeves getting converted with shrinkable cold foil with the last white printed in gravure.

This narrow-web press offers a speed of 750 feet per minute and is based on modular flexo technology for easy configuration. The FB-3300 includes screen and hot foil Drop-In features to increase your printing options at a very affordable price; a convenient splicing table with pneumatic hold down bars; ergonomic slide-out print stations; easy-to-use operator interface and advanced diecutting and drying systems.

With consistent ink transfer across a wide range of densities, and at high speeds, gravure is suitable for applications that require high image quality. Durable printing cylinders make the gravure unit an ideal solution for high quality print on long and repetitive runs. The unit features adjustable doctor blades, an ink-circulation system, viscosity control, and a drying and vacuum system. Operator safety is ensured by the integrated ventilation system. The versatile gravure unit is prepared for both front- and reverse-side printing, and offers quick job-change and setup.

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 growing 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!
