There will be lots to see and do at Labelexpo India 2014 with over 200 exhibitors. For those who have not been to the show before, it’s aimed at label, packaging and general printers, brand owners and label and packaging designers. Show visitors will have four days to learn about global market trends, see live demonstrations of the most advanced technologies available, compare the latest materials and find out about the newest developments in flexible packaging and intelligent labels.

Many of the leading press manufacturers will again be at the show to debut their latest technology solutions. Exhibitor highlights are varied and include many new exciting innovations being shown for the first time ever in India.

Digital armoury

In the digital press market, HP Indigo will be showcasing its WS6800 digital press. This is the third generation of its WS6000 digital press series and offers high productivity, versatility and advanced colour management for the press user. Meanwhile Xeikon will be demonstrating its 3030 digital press in roll-to-roll configuration with live printing of a range of label applications for several vertical markets.

Rise of hybrid technology

With successful launches at Labelexpo Americas, hybrid technologies should also be high on the agenda for our visitors.
