Polyprint commissions new W&H Miraflex CI flexo


Polyprint, the Belarusian packaging printer, began initial operation of a new Miraflex S wide-web CI flexo printing press at its site in Logoysk in the Minsk region at the end of 2017. Specializing in label printing, the company works with major international food producers and is one of the largest printing companies in Belarus and has 200 employees.

The new Miraflex S is fully automated and equipped with state-of-the-art W&H systems including Viscocontrol viscosity control for ensuring the correct fluidity of the ink, Easy Set S for automatic setting of the color decks and Easy Reg S for register setting of all inking rollers. The new system offers Polyprint additional production capacity for high-grade quality products to meet the growing demands of the market.

“We opted to go with a traditional company, like W&H, on account of the high quality of their systems in particular. The professional production condition at their Lengerich site, which enable W&H to produce the highest standard of machines, was a further factor that persuaded us,” explains owner Felix Gitelman.

The Belarusian market leader is also extremely satisfied with the installation of the machine. “The entire installation work was precisely planned in advance. Installation went seamlessly. There were no delays or failures of the high-quality machines. We would like to thank the W&H team for their outstanding work,” praises Gitelman.

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.
