RotoControl, a manufacturer of leading-edge label slitter-rewinder inspection and finishing machines has secured another sale in Spain with TEA Adhesivos Industriales, a European leader of high-end label printing. On order is a fully equipped, high-speed BL-series booklet label machine with HTGraf, the local RotoControl agent for Spain and Portugal, instrumental in the sale. Live demonstrations of the BL-series for high-speed production of booklet labels will be one of the presented technologies at Labelexpo Europe at RotoControl’s Stand 7D42.

“This sale marks the first RotoControl machine for TEA, and is a strategic investment as the company expands into booklet label production,” said Alexander Siegmund, sales manager of RotoControl. “We offered a modular design that incorporated the range of features they desired, which will integrate well with TEA’s impressive suite of advanced label printing equipment.”

With operation speed reaching 60 meter per minute, the RotoControl high-speed BL-series machine is a modular solution for ECL/booklet label processing with various sizes and formats. A wide variety of optional modules including lamination, screen printing, cold foil, hot melt unit, and flexo printing are available, delivering a complete offline solution in one machine.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
