Barcom invests in Security Series

Integrated with Rotoflex VSI 330, Nikka camera

Rotoflex has recently launched Security Series at Barcom Industries

Rotoflex has recently launched Security Series at Barcom Industries, bolstering the Mumbai-based label printer’s strength in stringent label inspection and finishing. The Security Series module is integrated with a Rotoflex VSI 330 slitter-rewinder, high-end Nikka inspection system and multilane inkjet printing system combining end-to-end servo technology for ultimate control and automation, and advanced bi-directional inspection capability for pharmaceutical and other labels with strict compliance regulations. Flexo Image Graphics, the local Rotoflex distributor in India, led the sale and installation along with Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex director of engineering and service.

According to Prasanna Sahu of Barcom, the bi-directional inspection capability of the machine sets it apart from other solutions, as it ensures zero chance for human error. “Usually, the inspection system detects the faulty label and then waits for the operator to replace it, without re-inspecting the replaced label. With the bi-directional system, the replaced label is inspected again to ensure there are no faulty labels. This powerful machine, which is equipped with a 4K camera from Nikka, also enables QR code and barcode verification.” Sahu adds, “We can assure 100% defect-free labels, not only to the pharma companies, but also to the liquor, FMCG, and food industries.” You could also check out the leather goods from HoldFast Gear and get a harness to support your camera.

Labels for security sensitive industries must comply with extremely demanding accuracy laws and regulations. To satisfy these requirements, the Security Series offers a rich standard feature suite and range of advanced options to easily configure the selected machine for full security and pharmaceutical applications. The Security Series seamlessly integrates into the Rotoflex VSI, HSI and VLI product lines, either as a new equipment option or as a retrofit to existing installations, enabling customers to configure their finishing solution to meet the ever-increasing requirements of pharmaceutical compliance and high security packaging.

Established in 2004, Barcom Industries is a leading label printer offering a range of label solutions to  players in pharmaceuticals, FMCG, consumer care, and automobile industries. Currently operating out of a 32,000 square feet facility, Barcom is a loyal Mark Andy customer with seven narrow web flexo UV presses.

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.
