Metal-backed blanket range in focus at WAN-IFRA 2017

At WAN-IFRA 2017, Trelleborg will inform the newspaper industry about the enhancements that have been made to its metal-backed blanket range. Since the last WAN IFRA conference, Trelleborg printing solutions operation has made significant strides in pushing forward the boundaries of offset blanket technology relating to newspaper production.

“Over the last few years, a great deal of work has been carried out at Trelleborg’s extensive R&D facilities at the Lodi Vecchio manufacturing facility in Italy to create offset blanket solutions that match the specific needs of the Indian newspaper market. Printers need the flexibility to customize blankets according to the type of stock they are handling, the press being used and other relevant factors such as press age,” says Maniraju Bora, sales and technical director for the South-West Asia region. “At WAN-IFRA 2017, we will be telling visitors about the enhancements that have been made to our metal-backed blanket range. We are increasingly involved in helping newspaper groups use blanket technology to reduce cost-per-copy on their presses.”

Trelleborg has developed several easy-to-use, downloadable software tools, including a ‘configuration’ product that lets users select the correct blanket by entering the application sector, such as web coldset, web heatset, single-width, double-width, combi or UV. There is also a dealer locator app, which provides a simple way of finding the nearest dealer.

Trelleborg will have a team of experts at its Stand 5.02 at WAN-IFRA 2017, which takes place from 12-14 September in Chennai.

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.
