Acme Rolltech claims to be the first Indian company to start manufacturing ceramic anilox rolls and sleeves in the country and is keen to meet the industry at PrintPack 2022. The company’s anilox rolls can be used by all print and coating segments such as narrow web flexo label presses, end of press offset coaters, stack and CI flexo presses, and corrugation and speciality coaters and applications.
This is the first time the company is participating in PrintPack. It is expecting a reasonable footfall for this event as it is happening after the Covid-19 pandemic seems to have subsided with remarkably few cases in India, and most of it the eligible population vaccinated. PrintPack is the biggest event in the print and packaging space in the country and generally attracts visitors from nearby countries also. The company will showcase its Acme High-density white (AHDW) and Acme Tactile (ATAC) anilox solutions at its Hall 5 Stand C34.
Acme Rolltech — Hall 5 Stand C34
Acme Rolltech recently purchased a second laser engraver from ALE in the UK, which is likely to be commissioned in mid-April. Commenting on the expectations for the exhibition, director Sandeep Sharma says, “It is very important for us not only from a sales perspective but also from the fact that we have a huge customer base now in India, and such an event helps us to meet our esteemed clients from all segments during the exhibition. In addition, we will be able to showcase our new developments in one go. We can socialize and spend quality time with our customers after a long time.”
If you want to know more about the company and its products, come and visit Acme Rolltech in Hall 5 at Stand C34.
Note: The IPPGroup will be publishing the PrintPack India Show Daily on all five days of the event from 26 to 30 May 2022. Our May issues of Indian Printer and Publisher and Packaging South Asia will also contain previews of the event.
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.
