Durst wins EDP awards for Rho 2500 and Durst workflow

Two European Digital Press Association Awards have been awarded to Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies. They were for its Rho 2500 in the best flatbed/hybrid printer in the more than 250 square meters per hour category and the other for Durst Workflow (best workflow technology).

The awards are more recognition of Durst’s innovation as it continues its journey to become a complete solutions provider in line with its “Pixel to Output” strategy. Recent announcements have included the P5 350 high-speed printer, together with Durst “Automat,” and expansion of Workflow, Analytics, automation, and ink solutions for printers. The award-winning Durst Workflow is also available for non-Durst printers.

The EDP Technical Committee referenced the increasing importance of software and workflow. It said, “Important is not only the device or software itself but also the impact of the product on people and users.”

These awards are another strong reference point and third-party endorsement to what we have achieved through our mission to innovate,” said Manfred Glantschnig, head of Product Management for Durst Professional Services. “Durst Workflow is part of our world-class software. In an integrated world, we continue to help our customers through complete solutions from hardware, software, inks, and collaborations.”

Andrea Riccardi, Durst Group’s head of Product Management, Graphics Segment, said, “We are proud to have been recognized by the EDP with these awards. We have been steadily building our offerings in line with end-to-end thinking for 360-degree business solutions aimed at the smart factory concept to streamline production and processes. The Durst Rho 2500 achieved this recognition as a high productivity printer that can be upgraded depending on the volume production capacity required.”

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 growing 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.
