At drupa 2016, GlobalVision, a world leader in the development of innovative proofreading technologies demonstrated for the first time the integration of its Quality Control Platform into Esko’s Automation Engine 16. Embedding GlobalVision’s Quality Control Platform within Esko’s Automation Engine provides an all-in-one quality assurance solution that runs as a background process and results in anannotated and viewable design file with in Automation Engine. This further enables rapid and systematic review of all detected packaging and labelling errors throughout the workflow, from upstream design to print

Automation Engine is Esko’s workflow server. It automates prepress tasks, which speeds up the process, but also reduces the error rate and the need for operator intervention. Automation Engine is an intelligent system that takes prepress production to a new level by integrating with business systems as well as web front ends. “Today’s label and packaging production are complex and ever-changing, making it extremely challenging for companies to balance tight deadlines and quality,” said Christine Vanneli, marketing and event coordinator at GlobalVision. She further said that the partnership and integration between Esko and GlobalVision combine two best of class technologies to deliver the industry’s first fully automated solution to ensure the accuracy of the text, spelling, graphics, barcodes and Braille from initial designs to the final print.

GlobalVision has also released its Proof ware 2.0 – a new web-based, all-in-one suite of quality control applications to inspect digital files and identify errors before going to print. Proofware 2.0 brings an advanced suite of application tools focussed on delivering accuracy and traceability for quality control, reducing artwork rework cycles and cost.

Proofware 2.0 incorporates a redesigned user interface, cropping features, Adobe Illustrator support features, verification features in which Braille and barcode verification is now integrated into ArtProof and DocuProof and can handle complex layouts thanks to automatic processing of QRD templates for fast comparison to artwork. “Protecting our clients from errors is at the core of everything we do, and one way that we uphold this commitment is by constantly advancing and enhancing our solutions based on our partners’ changing needs,” explained Askold Zimmerman, account executive of GlobalVision. “With the enhanced feature set of Proofware 2.0, we are again bringing Quality Control inspection technologies to all new levels.”

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.
