Xaar’s Irix technology would help Codpad to become a leading provider of printers in the industrial coding and marking sector

Printhead and inkjet technologies manufacturer Xaar has announced a strategic partnership with Codpad, an inkjet coding and marking machine specialist based in Guangdong, China. 

The collaboration was formally announced at 2023 SWOP Packaging World Expo in Shanghai, where Codpad showcased its latest high-resolution UV inkjet coding machine, incorporating the Xaar Irix printhead.

Xaar is an inkjet innovator, providing printheads and technologies for OEM and UDI customers worldwide.

The new machine is designed for a wide range of coding applications including printing on metal, plastic, cartons, wood, aluminum foil, and films and supports different subdrop volumes for extra versatility by using both the Xaar Irix 40 picolitre and 80 picolitre variants. Offering simple and effective installation and maintenance, the machine’s built-in recirculation and ink supply temperature control, enable consistent performance in dynamic environments. In addition, the machine offers multi-level UV curing for superior adhesion on products with more challenging print requirements.

The print quality, user-friendliness, and reliability of the Xaar Irix printhead made it the ideal choice for Codpad. Individually lasered nozzles and Xaar’s AcuDrp Technology ensure uniform print quality even at long print distances. In addition, its highly accurate drop placement and enhanced factory calibration provides consistent printing even during extended print runs. These advantages, together with its compact design, makes the Xaar Irix a cost-effective, highly reliable printhead for coding and marking applications.

As a subsidiary of the Docod Precision Group, Codpad boasts over two decades of expertise in the coding and marking industry. Specializing in providing comprehensive solutions for food, electronics, pharmaceuticals, plastics, construction materials and hardware, Codpad is widely recognized for its commitment to excellence.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
