The Printpack India 2015 trade show is in just a few weeks, with packagers from across South Asia preparing to converge on Delhi to see the newest kit.
The focus will be on traditional colour printing, packaging, postpress and finishing, while digital and signage will also be popular.
Exhibitors include Kodak which will display its Sonora XP chemistry-free direct-on-press plates – similar to the Azura plates Agfa launched last year – allow packaging printers to be competitive, save money and reduce environmental impact.
Also on show will be the award-winning Kodak Flexcel NX system and plates for packaging.
Malhotra Graphics will show off its prepress systems for both flexo and offset packaging printing, with special focus will be on solutions for the packaging segment as labels and packaging represent growth markets.
They include Xeikon ThermoflexX Digital Imagers, which includes a 5080 dpi imaging resolution. It is an open system allowing printers and reproduction houses to use any flexo and letterpress plates. It will also demo several software packages including Packz.
SL Kulkarni Cyril Graphics (SLKCG) will be there but will not have any machines, instead displaying Shengli’s range of postpress products for mono, duplex and corrugation cartons manufacturing and the Fuchu Shiko range of rigid box making machines with various finished box samples.
Sergusa Solutions will display some machines – high-speed printing quality inspection for cartons as well as PDF verification and proof reading of wide format printed sheets from Beijing Daheng Imaging Company.
The company will also introduce its ‘SolPrint’ ERP/MIS software, developed in Britain and designed for the printing and packaging industries.
Boettcher India will also display its Vita range, best suited for applications in food packaging printing.
Printpack India will be held February 11-15 at the India Expo Centre at Greater Noida in Delhi.
Noida-based Daya (Sheth Printograph) will target packaging converters and digital printers with two new offerings Pylo XL 3040 and Ultima lamination equipment, which, the company claims, will be the star attraction at the show.
Speaking to PrintWeek India, Sonal Sheth, director, Sheth Printograph, said, “Both the products, which we will launched at the show are a must–see to gauge Indian manufacturing capability vis-à-vis imported machines. Moreover, we are better equipped to provide most efficient after sales service, which is a major criteria while making decision for any capital investment.”
The Pylo XL 3040 is an extension to the company’s Jazz lamination machine aimed at packaging printers who are doing MetPET jobs. This ‘Made in India’ kit is an automatic water-based and thermal film laminating machine with inline drying system and automatic hot knife sheet separation system with laser sensor.
The Ultima is a double-sided thermal lamination machine designed for digital prints. It is equipped with double side embossing and texturing, window slitting for photo album and online automatic precise cut-to-length sheet cutting for polyester film lamination. This is a modular machine suitable for both digital photographic printers as well as commercial printers and label manufacturers.
“The USP of Ultima is time and labour saving due to add-ons at both ends of machine. These include inline window slitting before lamination and online sheet separation at the rear of machine. It increases productivity, lower labour cost and minimal or no wastage and no maintenance of two separate machines,” said Sheth.
