The Zünd exhibit at booth C20 in hall 1.2 illustrates how smart production automation offers great savings potential even for smaller graphics manufacturers by eliminating the potential for errors. Attendees will be introduced to PrimeCenter, the control center for generating print and cut files. In live demos, Zünd will be showing how the pick&place interface option controls robotic devices and fully automates the removal of cut parts and their placement at pre-defined locations.

An automated, digital print&cut workflow is essential for standardized manufacturing processes and economical production. At Fespa 2022 in Berlin, Zünd exhibits solutions that help effectively automate graphics production.

There are many ways to optimize production and make it more efficient and profitable. Zünd offers automation solutions for many different scenarios. They are designed to automate and standardize the preparation of print and cut files. They support PSPs by providing tools for production monitoring and analysis and facilitating the removal and logistics of cut parts.

To create additional efficiencies in parts removal, job tracking, and even logistics, Zünd is also showing the visualizing option, another component of the Zünd cut center user interface and workflow software. Besides assisting the user during parts removal through projection, this option offers capabilities for labeling cut parts. Printed and affixed QR-codes help streamline and facilitate logistics.

For anyone looking to determine what aspects of their production workflow may have potential for optimization, Zünd offers the web-based monitoring and analytics software Zünd connect. Zünd connect uncovers productivity losses and provides key performance indicators that help users further optimize their digital cutting operations. It captures performance and availability KPIs from cutters integrated into the Zünd production workflow and uses this data to calculate Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE).

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