US-based Martin Automatic looks forward to meeting its friends and customers during the 2022 Labelexpo Europe in Brussels. An essential supplier of non-stop unwind, rewind, and tension control equipment to the narrow web flexo and digital printing markets, the company will answer visitors’ questions about non-stop production and its benefits for the bottom line and carbon footprint.

During the last 24 months, Martin technology has proven even more essential to web printers, and converters as many shifted focus to PPE production or rapidly increased production of labels, pharmaceutical packaging, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging, or pouches. Martin helped with these decisions and kept pace with deliveries every step of the way, creatively solving start-up and installation issues during restricted travel periods and designing new features and machines based on changing production requirements.

Supply chain disruptions and scarcity of raw materials have emphasized the importance of non-stop automation even more. The more efficient use of raw material and the ease of processing residual rolls have become more important and attractive.

Visitors to Stand 7A35 will see the company’s popular MBS automated butt splicer and LRD rewinder machines that have revolutionized label production since 1983 and 1996, respectively. Technology and space-saving packages are available for both models to accommodate your most extreme speed and web tension requirements while minimizing tight floor space. Martin Automatic will also explain the patent behind the popular rotary-sheer splice unit and lift and load mechanism on the MBS butt splicer and why automatic roll unloading from the LRD rewind is essential to your productivity and operator convenience at their stand.


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.
