New SAVEink chamber doctor blade highlights TRESU’s presence at Labelexpo India 2018

TRESU’s FlexiPrint range at Labelexpo India 2018 – Stand M23


At Labelexpo India 2018, TRESU Group will present its ancillary program of automatic ink supply and chamber doctor blade systems for flexographic label and packaging presses providing solutions for reducing waste, consistently clean printing at faster speeds, and improved machine uptime (Stand M23, 22-26 November, India Expo Center and Mart, Delhi/NCR).

A highlight at the stand will be the new TRESU FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber doctor blade for narrow web flexo applications up to 800 mm wide. With an integrated high capacity reservoir, the TRESU SAVEink chamber doctor blade is ideal for process and spot colors as well as high ink transfer printing, without the need for a connected pump. TRESU SAVEink is suitable for long and short run production; ink may be added to the reservoir without stopping the press.

The TRESU SAVEink chamber is sealed and locks into place in seconds without the risk of spilling or ink contamination. Its doctor blades are in fixed, pre-set positions and require no further adjustment: optimal contact is made with the anilox roll, minimizing wear.

Visitors to Labelexpo India will also be able to experience the TRESU SAVEink chamber doctor blade installed on a press at the Alliance Printech PVT stand (F21).

TRESU’s chamber program is available for all web widths from 185 mm to 6000mm and includes light-weight, corrosion-resistant carbon fiber and ceramic variants. Using the company’s unique ‘Pressure Control Technology’, the chambers eliminate air contamination and microfoaming, to ensure clean, uniform print on the substrate. Suitable applications include labels, flexible packaging, and paperboard printing and coating. Chamber blades may be supplied with new presses and retrofitted on existing ones.

Also featured on the stand are other models in the FlexiPrint range: FlexiPrint Basic and FlexiPrint Reservoir, offering high price-performance ratios. These doctor blade systems maximize print quality, efficient ink use, and savings on waste.

FlexiPrint Basic offers high-quality doctoring for anilox rolls from 80 mm to 2000 mm in width and between 60 mm and 400 mm in diameter. Suitable for water, solvent and UV-curable inks and coatings, FlexiPrint Basic features TRESU’s patented ‘E-Line’ eccentric clamping system and seals for fast, accurate and easy doctor blade changes, and protection of ink quality.

FlexiPrint Reservoir is designed for water-based and UV coatings. It can be manually filled or used with a pump. The easy-load cassette enables fast colour/ coating changes and the patented seals mean that surplus ink can be reserved in the chamber for future use. Information on the carbon fiber MaxiPrint Concept chamber for web widths from 1600 mm to 6000 mm will also be available.

Ensuring a smooth supply of ink can save time and money and contribute to improved productivity. TRESU is recognized for its ink supply systems, which can be part of the configuration of a new press or retrofitted. Its flagship solution is the F10 iCon system that provides a complete cleaning and ink change cycle in 5 to 15 minutes for standard viscosity inks. Information of the full range of TRESU coating circulation and conditioners for high viscosity inks will be available on the stand.

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
