Mumbai-based Printgraph Converting Machinery, in collaboration with Macart and Perfect Printgraph Engineers, launched a digital label printer at the 15th Printpack India. The machine called TruWo aims to address the rising demands of the printing and packaging industry looking for new as well as complementary technology to add to their existing print capabilities. Additionally, Printgraph Converting Machinery, founded by Hiten Mehta, represents some of the leading machine manufacturers in India.

TruWo is meant for the entry-level segment of the label market. What we have seen is that digital label printers are affordable for only top-tier printers. But now the market conditions require printers to have all types of technologies at their disposal. That is why we came up with the concept of TruWo with a machine that would not be heavy on the pocket but at the same time would not compromise on quality,” said Pratik Shah of Printgraph.

TruWo is a result of a tripartite collaboration where the idea has been conceptualized by Printgraph Converting Machinery, the machinery has been built by Perfect Printgraph Engineers and the printing head has been supplied by Pune-based Macart. The machine has been fully built in India.

TruWo has a maximum printing width of 330 millimeters and can process self-adhesive paper and coated films with a maximum media thickness of 350 microns. We have received a great response to the machine since we unveiled it on the first day of Printpack. We are not only looking to supply to the Indian market but also eyeing the overseas market,” said Shah.

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.
