At PrintPack India 2017, Kanpur-based Perfect Flexitech has purchased its third intaGlios electronic gravure cylinder engraver from Monotech Systems. The deal was signed on 5 February, the second day of the PrintPack India exhibition. Perfect Flexitech provides prepress services and gravure cylinders to the Uttar Pradesh and adjacent flexible packaging markets.

The new generation intaGlios electronic engraver is a high technology, easy to operate and versatile system that offers users the highest standards of quality and productivity. The maintenance-free engraving system is uniquely designed and is preferred by users to cover a broad range of applications including packaging and trademarks.

Amit Mittal of Perfect Flexitech says, “The intaGlios from Monotech Systems is a very robust engraver which delivers high quality cylinder engraving. The engraver fits well into our high production requirements. We already have two intaGlios at our plant. Because of the high quality and speed offered by the intaGlios, we have been able to address and tap more markets. It has resulted in increased orders and hence we wanted to have another machine to fulfil the growing demand. This is our third engraver from Monotech systems.”

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
