AB Graphic Digicon 3 finishing machine at Delhi’s Kwality Offset Printers

AB Graphic

Delhi-based Kwality Offset Printers recently installed the India’s first AB Graphic Digicon 3 finishing machine, which was sold by Vinsak. The Digicon 3 has maximum web width of 330 mm and minimum web width of 200 mm and runs at a speed of 150 meters per minute. The unit is made up of two flexo units, one die-cutting station, hot foiling, cold foiling, embossing, varnish, lamination, waste rewinder, unwinder and three UV systems.

“We want to explore the label market for luxury products such as wine or cosmetic labeling. To pursue that we had explored many options but we stuck to Digicon 3 due to its advanced finishing capabilities,” said Rajeev Chatwal, director at Kwality Offset Printers.

Digicon 3 will compliment company’s Xeikon 3030 Plus digital label press it bought at Labelexpo India 2016.

Neeraj Sharma, executive director, Vinsak said, “The machine will provide great embellishment capabilities for label converting to Kwality Offset Printers. We are hoping Kwality will open new markets and provide value added label products for luxury applications and make full use of the machine in a short span of time.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
