Standard Printers Providers to focus on Taiyo’s flexo presses

Good Pamex and an optimistic forecast for the label industry

Taiyo STF 340 flexo press

Mumbai-based Standard Printers Providers is a supplier of several solutions for the printing and packing industry. These include narrow web offset and label presses amongst others. At Pamex 2017, the company highlighted label printing solutions from Japan’s Taiyo mainly talking to label printers about Taiyo’s label presses. Apart from highlighting and explaining the features of the Taiyo STF 340 and STF 460 narrow web flexo presses, Standard promoted Taiyo’s TLC 250 central impression drum label printing press.

The STF 340 is a narrow web flexo press which can handle paper, films and light cartons. With a maximum web width of 340mm, the STF 340 runs at a speed of 150 meters a minute. It can be used to print self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves, tube laminates and cartons. The Taiyo STF 460 model is wider at 460 mm and in keeping with the current trend of using slightly wider flexo label presses for in-mould labels, shrink wrap labels and cartons.

The Taiyo TLC 250 label printing press features central impression drum with 6-color UV letterpress printing, UV flexo printing, a varnishing unit and options of both flat-bed and rotary die-cutting units.  With web widths up to 260mm, it runs at a speed of 120 meters a minute.

“Pamex 2017 was a good event for us. We interacted with some quality visitors from across the country. The fact that Pamex saw visitors from so many parts of the country is a great achievement for the event organizers,” says Gaurav Sachdev of Standard Printers Providers.

Although, 2017 saw some hiccups in the market due to demonetization and GST implementation, the overall sentiment in the label industry was and is positive according to Sachdev. He expects the label industry to grow by 15% in the next year. “With growth estimate soaring for next year, we will concentrate on promoting the recent launches of our narrow web flexo presses,” 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.
