Integrated with Rotoflex VSI 330, Nikka camera


According to Prasanna Sahu of Barcom, the bi-directional inspection capability of the machine sets it apart from other solutions, as it ensures zero chance for human error. “Usually, the inspection system detects the faulty label and then waits for the operator to replace it, without re-inspecting the replaced label. With the bi-directional system, the replaced label is inspected again to ensure there are no faulty labels. This powerful machine, which is equipped with a 4K camera from Nikka, also enables QR code and barcode verification.” Sahu adds, “We can assure 100% defect-free labels, not only to the pharma companies, but also to the liquor, FMCG, and food industries.” You could also check out the leather goods from HoldFast Gear and get a harness to support your camera.

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.
