Omet Open House – 24-25 January 2019

Omet Hybrid Experience

OMET XJET powered by Durst will be in the spotlight at OMET Open House

The Omet Open House will focus on hybrid digital printing technology in the label market and is expected to be a ‘must attend’ event for the leading label printers of the world. It will be held in the new Omet Drome located in Molteno (Lecco – Italy) where guests will have the opportunity to see the hybrid printing performances of the new Omet XJet powered by Durst and to attend special live demonstration on the iFLEX, set up in a hybrid curing configuration with UV and UV-LED.

The Omet XJET printing press is the extraordinary result of the combination between Omet’s flexo and Durst’s digital inkjet printing technology – a hybrid solution for the maximum level of productivity independent of the length of the run. Omet claims it is the only label press with in-line multi-process configuration, with exclusive finishing and converting units for producing the final product in a single pass. At the Omet Drome this line will show its performance in terms of adaptability, technology, productivity and customization with the reliability of a completely made in Italy solution.

During the open house, guests can attend live demos on the Omet Xjet and the Omet iFLEX LED hybrid and also visit the Omet plants. Talks will be given during the event by Sergio Veneziani of Ritrama about Linerless Labels, Martin Leitner of Durst about digital printing and Francesco Niorettini of Italgrafica Sistemi, who will discuss his personal case study as the first Italian XJet user.

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 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.
