NOVOFLEX II flexographic press.

Machinery manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher will host ‘Experience the Future of Flexo,’ featuring the newest technological developments in flexographic printing at its renovated printing technology center in Lengerich, Germany on 27 and 28 March 2019. The company will organize a world premiere of the NOVOFLEX II flexographic press to demonstrate the challenging jobs at top speeds during the open house. The MIRAFLEX II product range, the market’s top selling flexographic press with more than 600 machines running worldwide, is being expanded with the introduction of a compact single port machine.

The open house will include additional topics, such as a new technology that delivers high performance press-ready plates in less than an hour presented by Kodak Flexcel Solutions as well as a direct comparison of the classic CMYK color separation to multi-color separation. The Information and Diagnostics Center will introduce visitors to new services using data glasses.

“Shorter job lengths, demanding images and consistently high-quality print done profitably – demands such as these from flexo printers are increasing. At ‘Experience the Future of Flexo’, W&H will present solutions for these challenges with new machinery, time-saving processes and new technology,” explained Markus Bauschulte, technical sales director of the printing and finishing unit at W&H.

Visitors to the open house will experience the premiere of the NOVOFLEX II, the newest flexographic press from W&H. “The NOVOVLEX II should prove especially interesting for the premium printer. It provides maximum profitably supported by efficient performance, quick job changes and consistently exceptional print quality. The heart of the advancement made on the printing decks is the new doctor blade chamber technology. We believe that these and several other developments on the press will be attractive to our visitors,” added Bauschulte.

The open house will have live demonstrations of the two versions of the MIRAFLEX II, one on the new compact single port version and the other on the established and easy-to-operate dual port version. “We’ll show how quickly jobs on such a high-tech press can be changed. Then we will compare the technical and economical aspects of classic CMYK color separation to multicolor separation,” said Bauschulte.

The Information and Diagnostic Center (IDZ) from W&H will introduce new remote services. “Today, more than 80% of all machine problems can be successfully resolved remotely. Using data glasses, we are able to create even closer interaction between IDZ, the machine operator and the machine itself. At the open house, we’ll cover exactly how that works,” said Christian Brönstrup, head of the IDZ department.

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.
