Vinsak, a manufacturer of a wide range of inkjet systems and digital embellishment solutions, has announced the installation of its USAR (universal slitter and rewinder) 430 finishing machine at Emirates Polystyrene Industries (EPI) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Emirates Polystyrene Industries was first established in the year 1988 in Dubai. Increasing demand for plastics in the dairy and ice-cream industries, coupled with a need to produce eco-friendly durables, spurred the company into making high-quality plastic packaging products.

A wide range of operations and good quality has made EPI one of the pioneers in the UAE and (Gulf Cooperation Council) GCC markets, being a leading manufacturer of plastic rolls from basic raw material to finished products required by a plethora of industries.

The company said working with Vinsak was a customer-centric experience. “From the moment we engaged their services, they demonstrated a deep understanding of our printing and packaging needs and a genuine commitment to our satisfaction. Their team went above and beyond to ensure that our requirements were met with precision and timelines.”

Emirates Polystyrene aims to enhance its production capabilities by installing the Vinsak USAR 430. This modular universal slitter & re-winder operates on a fully servo-driven system, equipped with inline die cutting, pneumatic unwinders and rewinders, a razor slitting system, dual rewinders, and the ability to slit a wide range of material from 12-micron films to 450 GSM boards.

With the integration of the USAR 430, EPI can now achieve precise and efficient finishing processes for labels, ensuring superior quality and meeting diverse customer requirements.

Vinsak is a supplier of printing and packaging solutions in India, Africa, and the Middle East. It has enabled many businesses to succeed financially by providing them with well-integrated and supported customized solutions.

As Packaging South Asia had reported earlier, Vinsak had demonstrated live its USAR, which is meant for high-resolution security printing with customizable finishing solutions, at Pamex Mumbai and LabelExpo 2016.

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.
