Latest E106 press hits the market

Its a Scodix drupa for Monotech and Nutech Packagings

Nutech, Monotech and Scodix celebrate E106 signing at drupa

The E106, is a B1-format multi-function digital enhancement press for short to medium-length runs which Scodix says would help folding-carton printers and converters differentiate their offerings and boost profit margins. Commercial deliveries of the press are set to start in 2017.

Scodix chief executive Roy Porat told the assembled media at the Scodix stand, “Drupa 2012 was considered by all as the launch of Scodix, and a great success for the business. Between shows we grew from 12 customers to over 200, and we were hopeful of the same success in Düsseldorf again this year. We have seen all that and more.”

Scodix presses are distributed in India by Monotech Systems. A visibly excited Amritpal Singh Bawa, vice president, DPE – commercial and packaging of Monotech Systems said, “This is a Scodix drupa. It has been a fantastic drupa for us. We are overwhelmed by the reaction that we have got. Although I cannot disclose the number of deals or the specific printers that are interested at the moment, I will say the overall figure is beyond our initial expectations. The most number of deals at the show has come from India and spread across the length and breadth of the country. We even managed to close a deal from Kolkata. Overall we are going over 100 units worldwide.”

He further added, “With the launch of E106, which has the capability of spot UV, embossing, foiling, cast and cure, with a speed of 4,000 sheets in B1 size and 6,000 sheets in B2 size, this is a machine which will be an excellent choice for commercial and packaging printers. Nowadays, normal printing is not good enough. You have to add value to your products so that as a printer you get a competitive edge. This is where a machine like Scodix comes into the picture and after drupa 2012, it has really changed the market. Scodix has shown the value of print enhancement. We have already installed 25 machines in India. Now, we are really looking to get into a really good figure by the end of the year.”

Lior Meron, VP Asia Pacific BD of Scodix also said, “The Asia Pacific region has a tremendous growth potential. The Indian market is obviously doing very well. With the support of Monotech Systems, we aim to continue our success.” Apart from the E106, Scodix also demonstrated its proven product portfolio – including the Scodix Ultra Pro digital enhancement press with foil station and the Scodix S Series digital enhancement press.

“Drupa has proven to be very successful for Scodix and we are pleased to return to a show that provides us with a platform to engage with some of the most influential manufacturers and suppliers to the industry. Presenting our latest portfolio at this landmark event is extremely exciting and we look forward to what we can achieve, both as a company and for our customers, at drupa 2016 and beyond,” Roy Porat concluded.

Packaging South Asia is a cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which was held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany

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 grown 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. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
