Sunil Talpade, proprietor of Royal Coat, said, “It is a highly configured machine capable of finishing clear-on-clear labels, in-mould labels and flexible packaging. Indian printers are getting quality conscious and investing in advanced technology to prepare for the growing label market in India. I am happy with the installation and gearing up to close more orders in the pipeline.”
Thanks to the availability of low-cost made-in-India robotics required for label placement inside the moulds in the last couple of years, more and more moulders as well as brands have shown readiness to use in-mould labels.
According to experts, due to these developments, significant investments have been made in this space, which is expected to drive a double-digit growth in in-mould labels space.
With a high-end label handling machine like Sun Omnia, Letra Graphix is poised to leverage the growing demand for in-mould labels in the Indian market, which currently constitutes less than 1% of the total estimated label industry of Rs 3,000-crore.
Suited to handling short runs, stacking different shaped wet-glue labels or in-mould labels, Sun Omnia is a compact and modular multi-use finishing machine that can be equipped with various features depending on market needs.
Besides Sun Omnia, Letra Graphix also houses several Prati slitter rewinders and a booklet machine.
