Mouvent, a Bobst Group company, will provide live demonstrations of two of its digital label printers at Labelexpo this year, which takes place from 24 to 27 September 2019 in Brussels. On display will be the industrialized LB702-WB, a high net output digital label printer using 100% water-based inks, and LB701-UV, one of the smallest high flexibility, high productivity digital label printer.

Attendees will have the opportunity to bring and test own jobs on the LB701-UV (by appointment). In addition, a major new launch by Bobst at Labelexpo 2019 – a new hybrid label press called MASTER DM5 – is driven by Mouvent digital ink-jet technology Inside.

LB702-WB uses only 100% water-based, in-house developed Mouvent inks, making it 100% free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and 100% indirect food contact compliant. The machine can run with up to 100 meters/min on a broad range of substrates of up to 360 mm wide, from self-adhesive to wet-glue labelstock especially targeting applications where migration and recyclability could be an issue, washable labels being just one example.

The LB701-UV is the smallest label printer within the Mouvent range, matching the letterpress format. This mini label machine has a resolution 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and speed of up to 100 metres/min.

“Attendees at Labelexpo will have the opportunity to see the full potential of digital label printing for themselves,” said Thierry Martin, chief executive officer of Mouvent. “The LB702-WB is a really remarkable advance in digital label production as it uses only water-based inks, while the LB701-UV is extremely compact and ergonomic and enables highly flexible label production. These machines are the future of digital label printing.”

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.
