Domino's K600i digital UV inkjet printer

Domino Digital Printing Solutions will be demonstrating the K600i digital UV inkjet printer at Labelexpo Europe 2019 in Hall 9, Stands 9A60 and 9B50. The 445 mm wide dual bar, high speed K600i will be integrated with an ABG Omega SRI (slitter, rewinder and inspection unit) and will be printing 100% verified, high resolution, machine-readable codes onto die-cut labels.

“Domino’s long-standing heritage of manufacturing digital inkjet technology for the label printing sector is testament to our commitment to produce efficient, highly productive and profitable printing solutions for our customers,” says Jim Orford, product manager at Domino Digital Printing Solutions. “The K600i is our response to market requirements for printing high speed, high quality variable data such as text, sequential numbers, barcodes and 2D linear codes including QR codes. These are regularly used in brand security, logistics, reverse logistics (online returns) and in promotional gaming and loyalty applications. We’re delighted to be demonstrating the dual bar K600i at Labelexpo 2019 with capability not previously shown at a European exhibition.”

More information on Domino products to be displayed at Labelexpo Europe will be announced in the coming weeks.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
