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.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
