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.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
