Delhi-based SRK Technology provides printers and print finishers with professional solutions for printing, finishing or converting high-quality products for their customers. The company recently launched two products – Cheetah and Rhino series – to cater to the packaging industry.

SRK Technology says its trademarked Cheetah series will bring highest profitability for hologram insetting and foil stamping in wide web operation. Hot foils and holograms are important for marketing to give an extraordinary look and to add security features to packaging. Both technologies offer the possibility to brand owners to shape their brand image as well as attract customers on the point of sales. Although hot foiling and hologram stamping are not new to the market, there is still a huge potential for higher efficiency, cost saving and quality to exploit. The company believes that this potential can be developed with its Pantec Cheetah rotary hot foil and hologram stamping system.

Pantec Cheetah series comes with an array of features, which include inline integration into web presses or off-line solution, up to 20 hologram placements per second (150 m/min web speed), high-performance vacuum foil saver technology (no moving masses), and non-stop auto-splicing foiling system.

Pantec Cheetah series is specifically designed for optimum output in registered hologram insetting and patch application. The Pantec friction-free foil path and the vacuum buffers ensure homogeneous tension, without inertia of moving masses which may stretch the sensitive foil.

Each hologram has its own printing mark. The Pantec technology detects every mark by a mark reader placed shortly before stamping. This and the unique vacuum foil motion system ensure excellent accuracy. To ensure perfect side register, motorized lateral foil adjustment is provided.

Another innovative product from SRK Technology is the Rhino series, which helps in flat embossing directly in the line. The company says that Rhino series brings the quality of sheet-fed hot foil embossing, attractive spatial images placement for prestige markets and hologram stamping for security into narrow web presses.

Flatbed technology for hot foil stamping allows simultaneous foiling and embossing on the same tool for absolute perfect register even on structured, uncoated papers like wine or spirit labels. The Pantec Rhino provides flat bed technology with an outstanding machine performance of up to 30,000 strokes per hour. Combined with the revolving foil head which allows the application of several foils in multi-step mode, Rhino is an extremely powerful embossing machine which can produce outstanding and refining effects with multiple foils and embossing effects in a single machine pass. Rhino series machines can carry out multifoil designs, fast running single pass with multi-stroke foiling across

perfect stamping results on uncoated, structured papers due to high stamping pressure and zero tolerance foil embossing. The output of this machine is crisp, high embossing that lasts for a long time. The machine has longer dwell time, lower temperature and higher brilliance. Rhino series machines can function in high frequency stamping for high press speed (up to 30,000 strokes per hour). They are small in size with cost-effective tools and offer quicker job change. Two foil saving patterns help the operator to optimize on foil saving.

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 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.
