Baldwin Vision Systems designs and manufactures advanced color management and inspection technology solutions to help achieve print quality perfection with consistency. By automating workflow, the company helps its customers manage complex requirements and exacting standards. Its solutions also help reduce waste and improve print quality—delivering a fast return on investment.

Among the BVS automated solutions, DeltaCam and SpectralCam deliver accurate inline spectral data to achieve absolute color consistency. For packaging and converting, BVS is introducing Guardian PQV advanced 100% defect detection for the entire production process. The Guardian RTM adds real-time quality monitoring to track and compare many different production metrics. ColorTrack software facilitates fast, accurate press-side correction of ink. Additional solutions include the performance-proven AccuCam, MultiCam, MultiCam TRIM, CCR+, RIC, and the new Autotron 3600.

This is the first time that the company is exhibiting as BALDWIN Vision Systems, after last year’s acquisition led to the combined engineering resources, product portfolios, and global footprint of QuadTech, PC Industries and Web Printing Controls.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
