Bobst India will be demonstrating live two post press solutions at the upcoming Printpack 2019 that will be held in Greater Noida. The two machines are new generation die cutter Novacut and the latest Expertfold folder gluer.

According to Venugopal Menon of Bobst India, the Experfold folder gluer that will be displayed and run at Printpack will have a “new surprise” and will be equipped with quality control system and end of line box collection system. He says that since last Printpack 2017 Bobst has come up with various new innovations with improvements and developments in the post press equipment for the solid board converting industry.

“If anyone getting into packaging business wants to stand out, be different, be innovative and also be the most cost efficient then he or she will find the right product and solutions at the Bobst stand in 2019,” Menon states.

In addition to the two machines, Bobst’s business unit – services will also showcase the new product and solution offerings to existing Bobst customers. According to Menon, the aim of this exercise is to make Bobst customers become more efficient by helping them increase the uptime of their machines and to manage better their total cost of ownership.

Bobst India is based in Pune where it operates a world class manufacturing facility for folder gluers and downstream equipment for the corrugated board industry including a competence cum training centre in a built-up area of more than 20,000 square meters. Bobst has an installed base of more than 1000 machines in India.

At Printpack Bobst India will be in Hall 10, Stall E35/ E36.

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.
