Steinemann is expanding its portfolio of UV varnishing machines in time fordrupa 2016. The company’s products now also include machines designed to cover a wide range of different demands on full-flood UV varnishing and spot varnishing in both commercial and packaging printing. The company introduced the dmax 106 digital UV varnishing machine in 2014. The dmax 106 is designed for B1 formats and offers divar inkjet technology.

Steinemann will be presenting the dmax 76, a narrower version for spot varnishing on paper and board sheets in sizes of up to 760 x 760 mm at Hall 3 Stand D32. The dmax family is rounded off by an entry-level model, the dmax 76c, likewise for the same sheet format. As a partner of Heidelberg, Steinemann will be giving live demonstrations on a dmax 106 in Hall 1 at drupa. “Steinemann has been leading technical development in the market ever since the company built the prototype of a machine for UV varnishing record sleeves andthe like in 1974. Our new dmax family is the latest pinnacle in these more than 40 years of practical experience. With their good price-to-performance ratio and excellent varnish application, the two new dmax models for smaller sheet formats are decidedly attractive alternatives to other solutions available on the market,” says Ludwig Allgoewer, head of digital varnishing at Steinemann Technology in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

All three dmax systems offer a resolution of 600 dpi and achieve an output of up to10,000 sheets an hour; permit varnish application rates of 4 to 50 g/m², or optionally even up to 100 g/m², while at the same time offering high varnishing quality. The dmax 106, the top-of-the-range model for sheet formats up to 1,080 x 780 mm, and the new dmax 76 for narrower sheet formats can be expanded into multifunctional finishing systems by adding numerous options covering very different demands on UV varnishing – including a module for printing barcodes, for example. The dmax 76c was designed as a highly efficient system for users wanting to step into the world of digital UV varnishing.

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 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.
