In addition, to develop predictive maintenance, we will provide better knowledge of the machine and its operation. One of the benefits of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is the incorporation of sensors that give explicit details of machine performance under various circumstances, providing a deeper level of insight that was previously unobtainable. .

Regarding recyclable materials, Dow, Menshen and Amcor will also collaborate with two corners. Either way, attendees will learn better about working within the philosophy of open innovation and how it enables us to do more for the flexible packaging industry and our customers.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the nationwide lockdown on March 25, 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned during this time? Perhaps the sense of resilience as small businesses like ours have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we struggled to produce our business platforms.

The printing and packaging industries have been lucky, although the commercial printing industry has yet to recover. We learned about the digital transformation affecting 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 an advanced technology that will only increase the demand for printing for the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe among the 90 countries where our five platforms are present. Our traffic, which more than doubled in 2020, sometimes increased by 50% in 2021. And advertising, which had collapsed in 2020 and 2021, began to come back in January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with irregularities and shortages, we look forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again mandated to produce the Show Daily over the five days of the show from May 26 to 30, 2022.

Now is a good time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative, technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can contribute to Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help support us by subscribing.
