Highcon System is presenting the capabilities of the new Highcon Euclid IIIC digital cutting and creasing machine to visitors at FESPA Berlin this week in Hall 5.2 for the first time. The fact that the Highcon Euclid IIIC machine for corrugated board has been awarded the ‘Best digital sheetfed cutting solution’ for quality and innovation in technologies for the digital printing industry by the European Digital Press Association (EDP) adds a bit of enthusiasm to its presentation.

The winners of the EDP Awards at the exhibition were selected on the basis of achievement, quality, and cost by 21 eminent trade magazines with editorial emphasis on digital print processes from all over Europe with coverage of 27 countries.

Commenting on the award, Jens Henrik Osmundsen, vice president – sales, Highcon and mgeneral manager of EMEA & APAC, said, “We are extremely proud to have won this award and to have received the recognition of this influential group of editors. I am also very happy to announce that Schoepe Display in Berlin has entered into an agreement to become the first Highcon Euclid IIIC customer in Germany.“

FESPA allows a new category of visitors to discover the opportunities brought by Highcon’s revolutionary laser die-cutting technology. Eitan Varon, Highcon executive vice president, will speak about the new Euclid IIIC and show samples at the FESPA Corrugated Inspiration Lounge in Hall 5.2 C40 every afternoon from 15:45 – 16:00. Silvano Gauch, president of LxBxH, Switzerland, will interact with the visitors about his day to day work with the Highcon Euclid IIIC for corrugated board and answer questions about the capabilities, benefits, daily workflow of the machine on 16 and 17 May 2018 between 13:30 and 15:00 in the afternoon.

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!
