The Insight digital press sales team at the Insight-Screen Labelexpo India stand – Ajay Agarwal, Sunil Thakeria and Naveen Gupta. Insight has sold its first Screen Truepress Jet L350 UV digital label press to S Kumar in Ahmedabad

It has taken a while but finally, Insight Communications and Screen have made their first sale of the Truepress Jet L350UV digital inkjet press to an Indian customer – Ahmedabad-based S Kumar. The press, which was finalized on the second day of the current Labelexpo India in Greater Noida, will be installed in January 2019 at S Kumar’s new digital label division managed by Aarjav Hansoti.

Insight Print Communication’s managing director Ajay Agarwal says that this is the first of several sales of the Screen UV inket press in the coming twelve months. “We could sell as many as a dozen presses in the coming year,” he said at Labelexpo India. Ever optimistic both about the Indian economy and the print and label industry, Agarwal says the Screen Truepress L350 UV is an ideal solution for top quality label printers. “Running at a speed of 60 meters a minute and with inkjet droplet size as low as 3 picolitres, this machines works on all labelstocks without the need of any primer. It can print on stock from 100 mm to 350 mm wide and has the lowest cost of operation amongst the proven high quality inkjet presses.”

Agarwal is quite impressed by the digital press awareness and presence at Labelexpo India. “Altogether, about ten companies are either showing a running digital press or seriously presenting one at this show. While in markets such as the US, more than half of the label presses are already digital, it’s clear that digital is the way to go for label printers everywhere including India. The entire digital label press should grow much faster than in the previous five years, since there are now several good presses available to Indian converters with a variety of capabilities, price points and ROIs.” he says.

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.
