Artize die makers
Artize to showcase pre-rubbered dies

To reach and get associated with maximum number of customers with its expertise and innovations, Artize die makers will exhibit at stall F-11, hall 9, India Expo Mart, Greater Noida at the Printpack India 2019, which takes place from 1-6 February 2019.

Artize will exhibit its cutting and creasing dies, pre-rubbered dies and the male and female stripping dies. The company will also showcase its new products such as engraved steel counter plate, embossing blocks with aluminum support, easy fix plate, simultaneous foiling and embossing blocks, and special alloy sandwich dies.

The utilization of superior grade rubber material with high speed ensures exceptional performance regarding cutting quality. Moreover, it helps to extend functional life of the die and assists in saving production time with accurate angle hair cutting sans dust emission. Profile cut rubber is acknowledged for its high working speed and it also helps to balance pressure between the cutting plate and cutting rule. The male and female stripping dies are utilized as essential parts of automatic die cutting machinery to eliminate the residual waste of the carton. This is considered as the most reliable and affordable option to clear the waste.

Engraved steel counter plate has a consistent quality from the first sheet till the last sheet with zero make ready time for creasing and is better than conventional ways in terms of time, money, and quality achieved in long runs.

Embossing blocks with aluminum support compensates the compression of wood after certain impressions and prevents uneven cutting, creasing and embossing pressure. It ensures better productivity, long life and good quality in production. Besides, it saves time spent on achieving correct pressures for embossing and punching.

Easy Fix Plate is the 1 mm plate to fix the embossing blocks which, saves time for repeat jobs. Simultaneous foiling and embossing blocks for foiling and embossing can be done in one pass. Artize’ special alloy sandwich dies are fit for a large quantity (in hundred million). These dies have no effect of humidity, even if the die remains in the machine for a couple of weeks. Re-knifing of the die can be done unlimited times, which increases productivity.

After participating several times at Printpack since 2011, Artize is expecting a heavy visitors footfall at this time and will target customers dealing with punching, embossing, foil stamping, special texture effect using dies. The company is aiming to reach as many customers as possible to show its products strength and association with the customer in their growth.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
