Tresu’s new light-weight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades

Easy handling flexo printing solutions

Tresu Group’s new lightweight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades offer improved chemical resistance, optimized flow and safe, easy handling in all flexo printing situations

Tresu Group has launched a programme of lightweight carbon fibre chamber doctor blades, offering improved chemical resistance, optimized flow and safe, easy handling in all flexo printing situations. The carbon fibre composition gives the chamber high-strength qualities, enabling a relatively low weight of between 2.4 kg and 4.1 kg a linear metre, thus easing chamber exchange. Inside the chamber, a top-coated ink-repellent surface offers extra protection against ink and detergents with high and low pH values and ensures efficient, thorough cleaning after job completion. Furthermore, curved inner surfaces maximize volume and facilitate controlled discharge. The chamber’s design also enables ink and coating circulation in relatively low volumes.

The units offer pressure-controlled ink and coating circulation with manual or closed-loop control systems, like the Tresu F10 iCon Ink Control System. They feature Tresu’s patented seal system, preventing leakage, and stainless steel blades whose clamping system enables one of the fastest possible changeovers in the industry — within two minutes.

Because of its simplicity and high level of automation, the Tresu carbon fibre chamber can be cleaned and prepared without being removed from the press, shortening makeready times. Henrik Kristensen, vice president, Tresu Ancillary, said, “Thanks to its time-saving advantages, optimized fluid control and resilience, the Tresu carbon fibre chamber offers a long-term solution for high productivity, low ownership costs and uniform quality.” All units are retrofittable with all of Tresu’s currently available chamber doctor blade 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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
