Showcasing flexo ancillary solutions
The F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity, ensuring a constant, accurate ink density on the printed substrate, without air contamination

At drupa 2016 at Hall 10 Stand D54 Tresu Group will show how its customized flexo ancillary and machine systems optimize processes in packaging, commercial and industrial printing applications. The global flexo technology provider will display an expanded portfolio of ancillary solutions for optimized ink and coating supply, in-line coating systems for digital folding carton and commercial applications, flexo printing units, complete printing lines for food packaging, folding carton and game cards, and comprehensive service programmes.
Moreover, Tresu will host a series of talks on converting innovations at its daily
‘Speakers’ Corner’ event at the stand.

Tresu’s flexo ancillary solutions provide enclosed, automatically controlled ink circulation, thus reducing makeready time and material waste, and assuring uniform quality. The F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity, ensuring a constant, accurate ink density on the printed substrate, without air contamination. This energy-efficient system also provides thorough automatic cleaning, achieving a complete ink change cycle in five to ten minutes.

Featuring a patented rubber seal system, Tresu’s chamber doctor blade systems with fast, safe blade exchange, offer airtight closure and a clean, blister-free printed image with fast drying characteristics. The chamber programme includes lightweight, corrosion-resistant carbon fibre and ceramic variants. All converting and coating applications are covered, from closed-cassette chambers for label presses, up to 6,000 mm wide types for corrugated board printing and even wider.

Tresu coating systems are designed for integration with sheetfed digital folding carton and commercial printing presses, providing the essential link in a seamless single-pass printing and converting line. Tresu’s coating technology will be a highlight at the stands of three leading digital printing press manufacturers. There will be a demo of the productivity and precision of the iCoat 30000 Twin, with two coating units, on the HP stand (Hall 17 A01).

Tresu will also be exhibiting a printing unit to highlight the productivity and flexibility of its web-fed Tresu Innovator flexo printing lines for folding carton applications. The Tresu Innovator offers a flexo platform in 670 mm, 900 mm, 1,100 mm, 1,400 mm and 1,700 mm widths. In addition, it provides the possibility for seamless integration of processes such as variable data, special coating applications, cold foil and finishing, providing an end-to-end solution for high-value packaging.

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.
