Automatic splicer and automatic transfer rewinder on display at Labelexpo Europe

Martin Automatic at Labelexpo Europe 2017

The Martin LRD rewinder accommodates 800mm diameter rolls in the standard model, with smaller and larger diameter models available.

Martin Automatic will showcase MBS automatic splicer and the LRD automatic transfer rewinder at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2017. The LRD will be fitted with optional features, some of which will be seen for the first time at Labelexpo.

The LRD is a two-spindle transfer rewinder that winds, changes and automatically offloads rolls, without any need for carts or additional roll handling equipment. The unit at the Labelexpo show is loaded with features, including a web guide and slitter package for in-line slitting; a portability package for easy relocation between press lines; and an articulating arm to offload rolls through the front of the LRD if product rolls require special handling. The LRD rewinder accommodates 800mm diameter rolls in the standard model, with smaller and larger diameter models available.

The MBS standard features allow for other, more exotic materials as demands for newer and different webs drive the industry for greater variety of labelling solutions. The machine that will on show at Labelexpo will feature Martin’s laser assist tape alignment system for easy splice preparation.

The Martin Automatic MBS and LRD machines at Labelexpo Europe have been sold to Desmedt Labels and will be delivered after the exhibition.  This is a repeat order for the Belgium label company. Martin will be located on Stand 7A35.

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.
