W&H to debut its Miraflex S compact press

Packaging 4.0 Open House at Lengerich 10 – 11 June 2015

The 8-color Vistaflex CX will be demonstrated live to visitors at the Windmoller & Holscher in-house expo at Lengerich

Windmoller & Holscher will use its forthcoming Packaging 4.0 Open House event to debut its new Miraflex S compact press and show its capability to produce high quality prints for short production runs. This compact press shows its high quality print for short production runs. Launched at the start of the year, Miraflex S has expanded this Windmoller & Holscher product range as it is an 8-color press available in widths of 640-820mm. The Open House, taking place on 10 and 11 June 2015, will showcase several new flexible packaging solutions.

Under the banner Packaging 4.0, intelligent, intuitive and integrated technologies will be shown with a live demo of the packaging solutions. This will include demonstrations of three flexographic and one gravure printing presses. A Vistaflex CL 8 will show the printing of diaper film at a speed of 800 metre a minute with in-line slitting. The highly effective Easy-Check C system automatically measures color quality during production operations. A Miraflex CM 10 will show an example of printing with high ink coverage and massive drying and new modules to improve print quality will be introduced.

A Heliostar S will demonstrate the newly designed Heliocontrol Advanced sensor technology and demonstrate its register accuracy for both inks and coatings. The press will run a thin packaging film printed at speeds of 500 metre a minute.

Other demonstrations at Packaging 4.0 will include extrusion on blown and cast film lines representing a snapshot of current tends in film production – Aquarex, Varex II, Optimex and Filmex. W&H will also show the process of turning the film to useable packaging which include AD PLASTIC 2, a valve bottomer for film valve sacks; and POLYTEX, a tuber for film that will be shown producing highly complex tube constructions with venting and embossing used for special applications.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
