Global Vision, one of the leaders in the development of innovative proofreading technologies, will give a demo of the integration of its Quality Control Platform (Proofware) into Esko’s Automation Engine 16 at drupa (Hall 7A Stand E20). Integrating Global Vision’s automated Quality Control Platform within Esko’s Automation Engine provides an all-in-one solution that facilitates the brand owner’s packaging and labelling inspection requirements across multiple departments.

Automation Engine is Esko’s workflow server. It automates prepress tasks, which speeds up the process, and also reduces the error rate and the need for operator intervention. Automation Engine is an intelligent system that takes prepress production to a new level by integrating with business systems as well as web front ends.

“Today’s label and package production is complex and ever-changing, making it extremely challenging for companies,” says Reuben Malz, president of Global Vision. “The partnership and integration between Esko and Global Vision combines two powerful technologies that provide customers with a new approach to ensuring the accuracy of packaging throughout the workflow from design to print.”

All-in-one Automated Quality Control Tickets comprises text inspection which compares text in virtually any language; inspecting artwork with pixel precision and identifying all artwork differences automatically; barcode inspection which automatically locates and verifies all barcodes and grades  according to CEN/ANSI/ISO standards; Braille inspection for inspecting Braille text for added or missing Braille components; Spell Check for verifying spelling in artwork files and documents; and Print Inspection which provides accurate quality control of all printed packaging components by comparing printed proofs to the approved PDF for unintended changes to the content.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
