Multitec will launch two servo-driven presses – VSI Servo S2 and Ecosmart Servo at Labelexpo India 2016. While VSI Servo S2 is based on the company’s Ecoflex VSi platform with a web width of 370 mm and heavier frames, Ecosmart Servo is based on the Ecosmart platform. Both the presses have been provided with electronic pre-register to cut down on start-up wastage. All controls on the print units are operated through HMI and there is an HMI at the end of press too.

VSi Servo S2 has two servo drives on each print station and it comes with an option of auto-register. Die units, in-feed and out-feed are also servo-controlled. Other features include chill rolls, zero-break contact type matrix rewinder and all the other features borrowed from the Ecoflex VSi press. Additions to the list of options offered are the multi-layer label cross over unit and the new ‘trickylabel’ matrix remover for extremely complicated matrix shapes. Ecosmart Servo features servo drives on all print and die units as well as in-feed and out-feed. The press is aimed at customers who do not want to invest in a press with chill rolls and still want all the benefits of a full servo press, says the company.

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 Asia is 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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
