On the third day of Printpack 2019, Vinsak announced the sale of Lombardi Synchroline 430 flexo press to New Delhi-based Excell Graphics. This is the second Synchroline 430 that will be placed at Excell’s plant.

The Synchroline 430 that the company has ordered is a 17-inch, 8-color flexo press with features such as UV drier at all stations, automatic registration, online flat screen, rotary die-cutter and inline slitter and rewinder. The press can handle a variety of substrates from 12 microns to 400 gsm.

“We are already a user of Lombardi Synchroline 430 press which we bought from Vinsak. So, we have a certain comfort level with both Lombardi and Vinsak. This had a big influence on our decision to go for the second Lombardi,” says Shashwat Bansal, partner, Excell Graphics.

The second Synchroline 430 that will go to Excell has the online flat screen, which is not there in the older Synchroline 430 that Excell has, Bansal shares. “The flat screen feature makes the press very efficient in terms of both cost, operations and speed,” he adds.

Excell currently manufactures self-adhesive labels but is now looking to venture into shrink sleeve labels and mono cartons, and according to Bansal, the capability of the Lombardi to handle a variety of materials with equal efficiency will make the task easier.

Bansal says that his association with Vinsak and Lombardi will continue. “This is the second press and we are confident we will continue to grow and so will our association with Vinsak and Lombardi,” he concludes.

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 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.
