UV Graphic Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of UV curing systems, printing and allied machinery, will showcase its latest product – a full servo, highly automated narrow web flexo press – at Labelexpo India 2018. The fully loaded press to be demonstrated live at the show running production labels will be equipped with a corona treater, double-sided web cleaner, soft tension control for thin and unsupported film printing with twin servo motors for each print station.

Automation features to be demonstrated at the Greater Noida event include full auto register including pre-register with less than three meters material waste and near-100% register on job startup, as well as 100% defect detection while printing. In an industry first, the machine at the show will also have auto register on the die-cutting units.

The press developed by UV Graphic Technologies at its modern Greater Noida factory will be shown for the first time at Labelexpo India 2018 from 22-25 November 2018. The new label press comprises the full configuration of accessories needed for the highest quality on the widest range of label stocks and materials – chill drums, hot foil, cold foil, hot air, IR and a range of UV curing systems, including a hybrid UV system capable of UV LED and conventional UV.

Abhay Datta, chief executive officer, UV Graphic Technologies said, “This machine is the most sophisticated press the country has ever produced with the smallest footprint the industry has ever seen. The compact 8-color press occupies only 9 square meters of floor space and is designed for a clean room environment.”

Apart from the brand new narrow web flexo label press being launched at Labelexpo India, UV Graphic will also display its globally accepted Video Plate Mounter, claimed to be the fastest flexo plate mounter in the world capable of mounting flexo plates in under 30 seconds with micro register and pre-register capabilities. A high speed turret slitter rewinder for labels, LED UV curing systems, a cylinder and tool storage system and a rotary hot foil stamping press with foil saver will also be on display at UV Graphic Technologies stand at Labelexpo India. Label printing specialists will be available to listen to, discuss and address the needs of label printers coming to the show. z

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
