Domino Printech India showcased the Ax-Series, a new range of continuous ink jet (CIJ) printers at Packex India 2017, at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. We met Manish Mohindra, assistant vice president – north, at the company’s stand which was buzzing with visitors who were shown live demo of Domino’s coding technology. With pressure on the production line gaining intensity, the Ax-Series offers businesses a way to protect their margins and enhance their bottom line.

According to Mohindra, “It is a chance for Indian businesses from across verticals and geographies to find out more about the innovative Ax-Series of CIJ printers. In making the printers, we tore apart everything we knew about CIJ printing and started again from scratch, making exciting discoveries along the way. The result is a range of CIJ printers that are faster, smarter, clearer and more cost-effective than anything else in the market.”

Mohindra talked about the new i-Pulse print-head unique frequency-matched drop generator and inks, the i-Techx electronics and software platform designed to optimize customers’ return on investment and Domino Design, a fresh approach to the total product design to maximize productivity and for ease of operation, which delivers printers that are robust, reliable and easy to use in the harshest Indian environments.

Talking further about the Ax-Series printers, Mohindra said that they are Industry 4.0 ready and will comply with the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. In fact, the latest Ax350i was on demo at the Bosch stand at Packex in integration with the Bosch flow wrapper. Domino’s thermal transfer overprinter was integrated with VFFS, a multihead weigher of one of its OEM partners, Asian Packaging, at their stand. Also, Domino’s thermal inkjet was integrated with another OEM partner, Shubham Automation’s check weigher at their stand.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
