Zircon Technologies India Ltd., one of India’s largest printers for high-quality labels, has installed the DuPont Cyrel FAST 2000 TD processor workflow solution for use with DuPont Cyrel EASY flexo plates.

With manufacturing units located in North, South and West India, Zircon owns an in-house plate-making facility.

Solvent handling was one of the pain areas for Zircon. DuPont Advanced Printing worked with Zircon to address their need to achieve high-quality printing in quick turn-around time without the solvent. DuPont Cyrel FAST thermal workflow plate processing technology uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a press-ready finished plate  in one hour  or less.

Cyrel FAST 2000TD plate-making system uses dry, thermal technology to process high-quality photopolymer plates, thus eliminating all solvents and aqueous solutions from the plate room. This process does not require the time consuming drying steps of the solvent workflow, enabling rapid processing, cost savings, sustainability and improved press performance. It features several tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow and improved machine serviceability. Plates processed in the 2000 TD processor have better cleanout and relief depth uniformity while providing excellent fine line and dot holding.

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.
