QuadTech’s inspection system provides 100% inspection on 100% of your print or non-print product, web or sheet, 100% of the time

India’s leading printed folding carton manufacturer, TCPL Packaging Limited, has installed its third QuadTech Inspection System to further drive printing efficiencies as it moves to support flexible packaging. In addition to the inspection system, the order includes Data Central, PDF verification, Waste Management and Web Viewing Systems—equipping TCPL with a complete defect management workflow.

Untitled 2The latest QuadTech technology has been installed to support TCPL’s newest rotogravure press—a Bobst Rotomac 4003—which will enable the company to print tipping papers for the tobacco market, and to print on flexible materials. TCPL, one of the two largest converters of paperboard in India, is already servicing this sector using two existing rotogravure presses with incorporated QuadTech Inspection Systems.

QuadTech’s complete defect management workflow solution offers printers improved waste reductions and increased savings on returned rolls through detecting defects on virtually any substrate or web width, at any press speed. This allows press operators to quickly identify defects and track them all the way through to finishing, where they can be removed quickly and efficiently. This solution is proven to increase converting process efficiency by up to 40%—helping printers to manage ever-tightening margins and guarantee quality control of the delivered product.

“Our most recent investment will continue to ensure quality and dependability is maintained while dramatically reducing waste and above all safeguarding our reputation for packaging excellence,” Biswadip Naha, plant manager, TCPL says.

TCPL and QuadTech have a long-standing association with TCPL having first deployed QuadTech’ Autotron Register Guidance System in 1990.

“We were delighted that TCPL chose to continue working with QuadTech to support their expansion into flexible packaging,” commented Amit Desai, area sales manager for India, QuadTech.

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.
