Ikonprint from Vordingborg, Denmark, has taken a digital leap by becoming the first Danish printer to install the new Nilpeter digital UV inkjet product line, Panorama. The move is a direct result of an increased number of incoming orders, and thus an urgent need to expand production capacity. Panorama is Nilpeter’s complete digital solution, offering opportunities in a 360° perspective.

The Panorama comes as a standalone digital press and as a combined digital press and converting solution. The digital press is based on proven inkjet technology and features a simple and highly intuitive user interface presented on a 42-inch color touchscreen. The Panorama offers market leading uptime and outstanding print quality and is backed by an efficient, worldwide service setup.

The first test runs made during Ikonprint’s acquisition of the Panorama were of such high quality that they decided to skip further testing and jump straight into the production of two customer orders – namely the production of around 500,000 wristbands for Bakken Amusement Park and the labels for Braunstein’s organic Easter beer. Besides amusement park wristbands and beer labels, Ikonprint’s new digital press will produce labels for industrial coating and paints, wine and spirits, as well as cosmetics.

The CEO of Ikonprint, Thomas Nielsen, thoroughly examined the market for UV inkjet digital presses before choosing Nilpeter’s Panorama. “Besides the obvious advantages of having a supplier close to our facilities, the high print quality, high uptime, and smart workflow made it an easy decision for us. And we are free – there are now special production charges and we can choose the web width most suitable for the individual job. It is crucial for us that the print is durable, water and fade resistant – and that’s exactly what the Panorama product line delivers.”

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.
