The EQIm (Extra Quality Improver) DigiExtension from Schepers is a high-performance software package that completely reinvents the way that laser technology interprets and outputs engraving data. The EQIm module works completely on-the-fly and its intensity and mode hardness can be freely adjusted at the control terminal. There is no need to prepare the engraving data in any other way.

When combined with the latest hardware for the output of engraving data (EgraBox), EQIm helps to produce better quality on standard engravings. It can also help achieve layer-by-layer removal rates that are sometimes much higher while maintaining standard quality.

For example, in some tests, it has produced the same results with a removal rate of 56 µm per layer that would only have been possible with a removal rate of 16 µm per layer in the past.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
