Kolding, Denmark 28 August 2020 – Responding to customer inquiries, Tresu has come up with a new short-run coater, an advanced and improved version of its inline coaters. The upgraded version, which modular and upgradeable, is called the Tresu iCoat II. It is optimized for coating applications in short-run digital print jobs requiring fast job changes and capable of speeds up to 6,000 sheets an hour while accommodating paper sizes up to B2 (approximately 20 x 30-inches).

The Tresu iCoat II features the industry’s fastest job change with a 30-second sleeve change, a proof tray for on-the-run proofing, and recipe storage recalling complex job details at the push of a button. With the new Tresu iCoat II platform’s unique modularity, machine configurations matching any individual customer need are now available. Any configuration can be changed later and more modules added to accommodate any possible future change in brand owners’ printing operations, or changes arising from short-run seasonal fluctuations or fashion cycles. The earlier Tresu double coater has already been installed at Parksons Packaging plant in Daman in line with its HP digital press.

Customers only buy what they need – no more, no less

The modular stand-alone Tresu iCoat II targets a broad span of configurations – from a combi coater with a dual varnish system and separate WB and UV circuits for general folding carton applications, to an efficient twin-coater configuration with more advanced single-pass finishing operations for high-end cartons. For pharmaceutical packaging applications, an inspection conveyor module can be added, delivering traceability and inspection of individually marked units.

Ronni Nielsen, VP Tresu Solutions Division, comments, “We have significantly boosted the Tresu iCoat II to a new level and this modular stand-alone version. Converters can now match digital printing requirements for fast job changes and switch to a new task with great flexibility.”

Any Tresu iCoat II configuration is based on its proven flexo technology with its genuine Tresu doctor chamber blade and varnish supply technology.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
