Tresu Americas has recently announced the first order for an iCoat coater to work in-line with an HP Indigo 10000 digital sheetfed press. Sold together, the iCoat and HP Indigo 10000 will be delivered early in 2016 to a customer location in the North Eastern region of the USA. Capable of seamlessly integrating in-line with a digital sheetfed press for folding carton and or commercial printing applications, the Tresu iCoat provides an efficient way of applying protective and aesthetically enhancing coatings in a single-pass after the printing operation.

The iCoat features a flexo unit that can apply spot or flood varnishes on board material between 180 and 500 gsm at up to 5,000 sheets an hour. Moreover, it is optimized for fast setup times due to tool-less quick-change sleeve technology and its ability to switch easily between UV and aqueous varnish sets.

In addition to this, Tresu Americas has received two orders for chillers to provide process temperature control on the HP Indigo 10000 press format. Tresu Group has a unique chilling solution available for all Series 4 press formats (10000, 20000, and 30000) from HP Indigo. Scott Hibbs, president, Tresu Americas, comments, “The iCoat’s capability for seamless integration and high performance at speed provides the basis for a lean digital sheetfed workflow. This in turn allows commercial and packaging printers to offer high-value short-run printing solutions, uniquely possible by the digital process, such as personalized product campaigns, serialized products and even samples on demand.”

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.
