The company processes around 80,000 running metres of high quality labels a day on state-of-the-art equipment at its production unit in Navi Mumbai pharmaceutical, cosmetics, FMCG and several other product segments.

Recently the company installed an 8-color Eco Flexo (VSI) label press that prints on various substrates such as LDPE, HM, HDPE, PP and paper. A fully servo-driven UV press with cooling drums – inline corona treater, delam- relam, turn-bar, cold foiling, lamination, inline diecutting, it runs at the speed of around 80 running metres a minute. The new press offers printing, slitting and removal of wastage with minimum manual intervention. Total Print’s production capacity has increased by around 35 % with the installation of the new machine.

At Total Print Solutions, 90% of the labels are printed with UV inks and the remaining with water-based inks. A significant quantity are exported to Dubai and to several countries in Africa. The Eco Flexo is a highly energy efficient machine which offering excellent print quality for work that requires UV printing. According to Total Print, Eco Flexo offers good after-sales service which makes it a reliable and competitive option.

Besides the new Eco Flexo, Total Print Solutions is well equipped with seven and 6-color UV presses and a 4-color letterpress machine. For postpress, the company has installed a servo-driven inspection machine that inspects at a speed of 200 metres a minute and a digital inkjet press for short-run labels on various substrates. In the previous financial year, the company invested around Rs. 3.5 crore and is planning to achieve a turnover of Rs. 25 crore in the next financial year. With this financial goal in mind, Total Print is gearing up for equipping the plant with additional equipment and investment.

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.
