At Pamex 2015, Standard Printers Providers displayed Taiyo STF-340, which is a modular servo-driven UV flexo press, Taiyo TLC-250 – a high-speed CI Drum type multicolor(6-9-12) UV letterpress label printing press with cold/hot stamping, rotary diecut unit, varnishing and curing to suit plain labels, self-adhesive labels, heat shrinkable films and tube laminates, and Taiyo TOF – a high-speed multicolor web offset press for security printing with roll-to-roll, roll-to-sheet, roll-to-pack, UV printing and curing and numbering.

Gaurav Sachdev, director of Standard Printers, said, “Many of the Indian printers
today demand a printing press featuring multiple processes including printing, foiling, lamination, screen, back-side printing, inkjet and diecut, roll-to-roll and roll-to sheet variants in a solo pass. Taiyo, with their vast experience in the flexo printing industry meets the demands of the labels and packaging industry with in-line flexo presses. Pamex 2015 provided us with an opportunity to promote the Taiyo flexo presses and we received positive feedback for machinery from Taiyo.”

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.
