With an aim to target the label industry, Domino Digital Printing Solutions has recently launched a digital front end (DFE) workflow solution designed for the N-Series range of digital color presses. With improved operating speed and streamlined automation, DFEv2.0 maintains compatibility with the latest Esko code base and can work with a number of variable data printing formats. DFEv2.0’s full capabilities will be showcased on the Domino stand at Labelexpo Europe 2017.

“Workflow integration is a fundamental component for an efficient digital printing process that should not be underestimated,” explains Simon Howes, product manager, Digital Printing Solutions at Domino. “The effective management of press time while optimizing print quality needs to be guaranteed, especially for brand-oriented sectors such as labelling and packaging.”

The new screener, Domino ScreenPro, streamlines the workflow by combining several processes into a single JDF workflow, which enhances speed and efficiency as well as enabling full offline variable data printing operation and additional capabilities within DFEv2.0. When compared to DFEv1.2, the increase in job processing speeds is significant, and has a major impact when using multiple page PDF files for variable data printing.

The a new JDF workflow further enhances automation and removes the need for manual file conversions is removed. “While speed and automation are the two features likely to appeal the most to label printers, versatility also has an important role to play,” says Howes. “The new workflow adds the ability to work with various VDP formats, such as multiple page PDF and PDF/VT files for the printing of variable data, barcodes and 2D barcodes, offering the printer a wider range of options to work with.”

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.
