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 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.
