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.

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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
