manroland web to focus on packaging printing – Hall 14 Stand 32-35

manroland web will promote its CROMOMAN 4X1 webfed press at PrintPack 2017

manroland web systems is all geared up to set a new benchmark for webfed printing presses featuring the latest in automation and technology for the growing packaging and printing industry. Depending on applications ranging from board to foil printing, the company has an optimized arrangement of presses with offset, flexo and gravure printing units in hybrid configuration. The established PECOM-X drive, operation and workflow management system is the basis for combining various components from manroland web systems to form a one-system solution.

manroland web systems has planned an elaborate presence at the upcoming PrintPack 2017. The company would be focusing on areas such as packaging printing, the Cromoman 4 x 1 newspaper press, and retrofits and upgrades for its installed base of web offset presses such as inline density, inline registration controls, press consumables such as blankets, rollers and press chemistry, as well as print services. In addition, manroland will talk about and offer its services for non-manroland presses and its Novexx Solutions for print and apply solutions for the label market.

The company believes that its longstanding experience in highly automated offset printing offers its clients in the packaging sector new possibilities for staying competitive and allows them to react to the increasing demands of the market. This would mean ever-shorter print runs, increasing price pressure, consistently high printing quality, reproducibility, just-in-time production, sustainability and an overruling machine intelligence environment through networking of processes and systems. The company also says that the most modern manroland web systems’ presetting, regulating and control systems enable waste reduction by double-digit figures. Industry 4.0 is a reality in the company’s new packaging printing press from day one.

Commenting on the effect of demonetization drive, the company said that the move has affected the printers in general but not the press manufactures as such. For 2017, manroland web systems India expects to install additional towers in some of its newspaper customers, although some customers may or hold back some decisions.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
