nyloprint WS-W digital plate

Flint Group Flexographic Products showcased their wide plate portfolio for security and banknote printing as well as the latest generation of processing equipment

The Security Document World (SDW) 2015 conference held from 9 to 11 June saw more than 110 exhibitors and 1,700 visitors from over 70 nations at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster, London. The SDW is an international event for technology suppliers, security document printers, infrastructure providers and integrators in the fast-moving security document marketplace.

The three-day conference was used as a platform to network between the industry’s top movers from government and industry sectors for document security, ePassports, visas, driving licenses, national IDs, worker credentials, advanced border control, anti counterfeiting, fraud detection and much more.

As an exhibitor, Flint Group Flexographic Products showcased their wide plate portfolio for security and banknote printing as well as the latest generation of processing equipment.

The highlight of Flint Group’s presentation was a new product — nyloprint WS-W digital plate. The new letterpress plate shows improved reproduction characteristics for the printing of finest micro-text and guilloche patterns in combination with the nyloprint NExT Exposure, a technology which is based on the latest generation of UV-A LEDs for improved reproducibility and further reduction of production tolerances. Customers showed interest in the new water washable nyloprint WA 116 S and WA 116 S digital plates, which enable security printers to produce their coating plates in-house instead of sourcing them from external suppliers.

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.
