At drupa 2024 in May-June, manroland Goss, a provider of web offset printing and digital finishing solutions, is set to unveil a comprehensive array of groundbreaking innovations — the highlight being the Varioman press for packaging printing applications.

Packaging solutions are our key highlights. Varioman is a real game changer in the market,” Franz Kriechbaum, CEO of manroland Goss, said at the pre-drupa media conference held in Dusseldorf from 25 — 27 March. Drupa 2024 is scheduled from 28 May to 7 June.

Wolfgang Hiesinger, senior vice-president for packaging and newspaper solutions at manroland Goss, talked in detail about Varioman and what it offers to customers. He said the technology promises lower production costs and increased productivity. With solvent-free EB curing and minimized ink consumption, it is an environment-friendly option for the industry.

You are printing solvent-free. You can combine that with EB curing technology to avoid UV inks. You can also use expanded color gamut systems with six or seven standardized colors to avoid having to print special or Pantone colors separately,” Hiesinger said. He said its flexibility enables seamless integration of various applications and fast job changeovers without compromising on print quality.

Hiesinger said the Varioman technology can help save 20 – 40 % in flexible packaging for short to mid long runs compared to flexo/gravure.

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.
