India’s first Lombardi Synchroline 430 in Gurgaon

A&A Labels looks to double converting capacity

A&A is a leading manufacturer and supplier of battery stickers such as auto battery sticker, auto battery industrial sticker, industrial battery sticker, battery adhesive sticker and automobile battery sticker

Gurgaon-based A&A Labels has installed the first Lombardi Synchroline 430 flexo press in India. Comissioned by Vinsak, the exclusive distributor of Lombardi presses in India, the new press will help A&A Labels expand its business portfolio and help expand its reach beyond the regional level, according to Saurabh Jain, director at A&A Labels. “The press will offer us the opportunity to produce labels on flexible film as well as begin the production of monocartons,” says Jain.

Lombardi Synchro line is a three-motor servo press capable of printing different kinds of substrates including paper, light cardboard and flexible substrates. The motors in Lombardi presses are geared together to gain the best accuracy in register and to minimize the gear bars. The electronic shaft keeps the register accurate by means of an independent servo on each print group. The press is equipped with printing groups governed singularly by brushless motors and the setting and maintenance of the printing register of the whole press is governed by the electric board with a system of register control.

Jain also appreciated Lombardi and its technicians for satisfying his requirements including some machine specific options. “The addition of this line will double our capacity in terms of converting self-adhesive materials and we expect a growth of more than 100% in our top line in this financial year,” says Jain.

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.
