‘Made in India’ was an apparent theme at Pratham Technologies stall at IndiaCorr Expo, where the Pune-based fi rm promoted its Indian developed IPV Proof Check software. The software basically cross-checks original artwork PDF fi le approved by the customer with ready-to-print artwork PDF file before printing as well as scanned fi le of printed artwork after printing. In other words, the software provides PDF-to-PDF analysis for print-ready artwork before printing and PDF-to-scan analysis for printed artwork after printing.

“It caters to players in the carton, leaflet and label segments with emphasis on printers extending services to the pharmaceutical industry,” said Sham Desai, marketing manager at Pratham Technologies.

Pratham has developed the IPV Proof Check software in collaboration with Image ProVision, another Pune-based fi rm. According to Desai, IPV Proof Check software complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 norms. The software generates both short report for quick understanding as well as long report for detailed understanding of analysis with pictorial data.

Another product that generated curiosity at the Pratham Technologies stall was the carton sorting system, Supersort, which has been developed in technical collaboration with Isra Vision of Germany. Supersort comes in two variants: Supersort 5002 and Supersort 5003. Supersort 5002 features one camera for face inspection and one for reverse inspection while Supersort 5003 has a third camera on the face side for inspection of defects in special operations like embossing, lamination, UV coating, etc. “The Supersort generates more productivity as compared with manual sorting process of folding cartons. It is fast and reliable,” Desai said.

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.
