On Thursday, 24 June 2021, Iwasaki and Vinsak launched the TR3 to markets in this part of the world. The webinar, hosted on zoom, saw a participant list of about 100 and lasted for an hour, where the TR3 and IF 330 were discussed in detail. Five panelists moderated the entire event, and a flurry of questions from print and label enthusiasts indicated the event’s success. 

The webinar presented the new Iwasaki solutions of Intermittent offset TR3 and the IF 330 for producing short-run labels competitively. While the technical presentation was clear and concise about the products on offer, the panel discussion posts had some very interesting interactions with converters discussing real use cases for the equipment and discussing the pros and cons of this technology vs. the digital label printing technology.

Iwasaki offers a complete solution for printing and converting 

The TR 3 comes with new and improved automation features, a bigger print area, and a smaller footprint, enabling efficient production of short-run labels. The IF 330 offers converters who already have Flexo presses to use their existing pre-press, smaller plates, smaller dies, and no tooling to produce their short-run labels efficiently. 

A key feature of the discussion was to appreciate the fact that Iwasaki offers a complete solution for printing as well as converting of the labels and to compare it with a digital solution, the technical and commercial offering of the entire solution must be used in the comparison Matrix and not just the digital printing part.

Existing Iwasaki users from India, The Middle East, and Europe were excited about the launch of the equipment being highly reliable and a very low maintenance cost. 


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.
