Imp software from Insoft Automation will be on display at drupa (Hall 07a Stand
E13). This software is for printers when it comes to planning and creating print
ready sheet/roll assemblies for printing.

The uniqueness of the level of automation in layout planning with Imp software lies in its ability to optimize for a variety of job and machine categories. Users are at equal ease when creating layouts for packaging cartons, labels, flyers, folded leaflets, books or magazines. Any kind of job can be automatically ganged with other types of product (diecut signage and labels with folders, posters, leaflets).

All the jobs can be optimized together on a conventional sheetfed or web-fed offset press, variable sleeve offset press, and an entire range of digital printers – A3, B2 size sheetfed, continuous feed digital web press, flatbed and Roll-2-Roll large format presses.

With every printer having a digital and offset press under one roof, the cost-based layout creation solves the complex task of choosing the machine to print a job economically. This is simplified with Imp software when ganging hundreds of jobs.

Stylkit is a parametric library of folding cartons based on inputs from European Carton Makers Association (ECMA) along with a 3D Visualizer. It has a range of drafting tools to edit the standard library. Moreover, it has a white board to create a custom design from scratch.

InForm, an end-to-end solution for high-quality, professional conversion of PDF content to reflowable EPUB or Kindle format, will also be showcased at drupa. Starting from picking a PDF file to exporting an error-free EPUB, everything is managed inside a single window. Little or no prior knowledge of PDF or HTML is required to use InForm. Presently, more than 50,000 books amounting to 15 million pages have been successfully processed using the InForm software.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
