Baldwin Technology Company will showcase a new generation of technologies for optimized corrugated high-graphics package printing at SuperCorrExpo, taking place in Orlando, Florida, from 8-12 August. 

The company will show the new ultra-wide FlexoCleanerBrush (126 inches/3.2 meters), a fully automated flexo plate-cleaning system. Visitors also can learn more about Baldwin’s FlexoDry, an energy-efficient IR (infrared) drying solution, and its LED-UV curing technology.

The FlexoCleanerBrush is Baldwin’s flagship solution to enhance print quality and improve worker safety in corrugated printing. The system automatically removes dust and contamination from the plate in seconds during production without stopping the press. It also performs full end-of-job plate cleaning and drying in fewer than four minutes, enabling increased uptime and sustainability. 

A carbon-fiber core keeps the ultra-wide FlexoCleanerBrush to minimal weight and ensures cleaning is stable, uniform, and consistent throughout the plate’s width. Because the system is fully automatic and spans the entire width of the plate cylinder, the FlexoCleanerBrush improves safety by eliminating routine operator contact with the machine while also reducing the risk of cylinder nip injuries and contact with wash agents.

Baldwin’s fully integrated infrared drying solution

Also on view in Baldwin’s SuperCorrExpo booth, the FlexoDry is a fully integrated IR drying system specifically developed for corrugated flexo printing presses. It reduces energy consumption by up to 30 percent over standard IR dryers through patented Diamond IR lamps. The system delivers improved drying results because of a unique optical design that produces higher intensity for enhanced color definition and reduces or eliminates marking altogether, allowing for high-speed and full-confidence printing. 

Additionally, Baldwin will showcase LED-UV technology, designed by its AMS Spectral UV division for wide-format flexo corrugated box printing. Representing the latest in solid-state LED curing, this technology offers more than a 60 percent reduction in power consumption compared to traditional UV systems—in an ultra-compact lamphead that fits at the end of the press or between printing units. 

Flexo inks, coatings, and varnishes specifically formulated to cure when exposed to LED-UV light provide a high-value decorative solution, offering offset-like quality and vibrant color, as well as full-gloss, spot, and matte coating effects on a wide range of corrugated stocks. Plus, LED-UV curing can increase the machine’s throughput over water-based aqueous coatings that may require slower press speeds to dry conventionally. 

Lightweight and designed for the demanding requirements of corrugated printing, Baldwin’s LED-UV technology provides instant on/off, speed-related power, minimal heat, zero ozone, and zone-width switching to reduce energy consumption further.


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.
