Asahi Photoproducts to participate in Print4All in Milan, focussing on flexo printing sustainability

Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, reported it would feature solutions that increase flexo printing sustainability at the upcoming Print4All trade show. Scheduled for the 3-6 May 2022 at Fiera Milano, Print4All offers an opportunity for attendees to immerse themselves in the world of print, including converting, package printing and labeling. At the show, Asahi Photoproducts will be located in Pavilion 9, Stand P17 – R18.

“We are looking forward to connecting with long-term customers and meeting new ones at this important in-person event,” says Andrea Belloli, Italian branch manager. “Visitors to our stand will reflect our dedication to sustainability, especially with our innovative line of water-washable CleanPrint flexo plates. We will be discussing their specific flexographic needs with visitors and will have experts on the stand that can recommend the best solutions for them moving forward. It is shaping up to be an exciting show.”

No solvents are required for Asahi water-washable flexographic plates

Asahi AWP CleanPrint water-washable flexographic plates are processed without Voc-based washout solvents, they use less energy in the production process and deliver a faster time to press than Voc solvent-based plates. Asahi’s CleanPrint water-washable flexographic photopolymer plate technology’s ability to deliver high-quality print performance results from its engineered photopolymer chemistry design. The water-wash technology also features a low surface energy plate resulting in higher printing press efficiency and less printing wastage. These elements make them the most sustainable flexographic plates in the industry. In addition, AWP-DEW CleanPrint plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their precise registration and ability to deliver perfect printing balance between highlights and solids.

Asahi will show two members of water-wash CleanPrint family

  • AWP-DEW plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their best-in-class finest highlights and good balance with homogenous solids.
  • AWP-CleanFlat plates are our new out-of-the-box water-washable FlatTop plate solution with high-quality printing press consistency for longer runs, including the usage on abrasive substrates. The solution also delivers efficient print production, reduced print waste and good solid ink density.
  • At the same time, both plates result in a sustainable improvement of the printer’s carbon footprint, increasing print efficiency.

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!
