Xeikon 3500 roll-to-roll digital press

Xeikon will be joined by the Flint Group’s Narrow Web and Ink divisions at Labelexpo Asia 2017, scheduled for 5 to 8 December 2017 in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The companies will be located on Stand G21 at the show.

By combining Xeikon’s digital printing expertise with the wide range of conventional narrow web offerings from the Flint Group, visitors to Stand G21 will find solutions that address all label converter needs for self-adhesive and heat transfer labels. In addition to a Xeikon 3500 roll-to-roll digital press configuration, the stand will also feature a ThermoFlexX integrated plate production system for flexo and letterpress.

“There is huge growth potential in the Chinese market for digital label production, and it is an important market for Xeikon,” said Bent Serritslev, Xeikon’s managing director of Xeikon Asia Pacific. “With the broadest range of digital label printing solutions in the market, Xeikon has doubled its market share in China over the last two years, a growth rate we expect to continue. This expectation is validated by the fact that Xeikon customers are experiencing strong volume growth on their digital presses, indicating there is no shortage of volume suitable for digital production.”

Exceptional support is critical
Serritslev pointed out that customers in China appreciate the quality and reliability delivered by Xeikon presses, but they also value timely, responsive service and support when issues do arise. “To that end,” he added, “Xeikon has invested heavily in the establishment of a quality direct sales and service organization in China. Our objective is to make the customer experience as seamless and responsive as possible in order to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction and equipment up-time.”

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.
