Labelexpo India has been extended by an extra day, with the event now scheduled to take place on December 8-11 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. The show’s organizer, Tarsus Group, has cited ‘high demand’ as the reason for the extension.

With less than eight months before the show, Tarsus reports that a number of leading international suppliers have already booked stands, including Avery Dennison, Erhardt + Leimer, Gallus, HP, Omet, Mark Andy, Martin Automatic, Nilpeter and UPM Raflatac. Among the local companies to have confirmed their presence are HolostikIndia, Kaygee Loparex India, Kurz India, RK Machine Tool Industry, SMI Coated Products, Stic-On Papers and Weldon Celloplast. Tarsus says that the show floor is set to have more machinery and live demonstrations than ever before.

Two companies have already announced their plans for the event. Nilpeter will launch its FB-3300 Servo Build press. The machine is said to have a number of features for value-added printing, such as a splicing table/web infeed, slide-out print stations and a Midpoint Pacing system which resets the tension between the print and die-cutting stations to improve register and reduce waste. The press has an Instant Registry Response system which enables multi-direction register adjustment without affecting web tension.

Omet, meanwhile, will show its Flexy and Flexy-S presses. The Flexy, which is available in three web widths, has a maximum speed of 150m/min. It offers a combination of flexo and screen printing with interchangeable units, as well as inline hot and cold foiling. The Flexy-S has shaftless and servo drive capability and can handle ‘the full spectrum’ of substrates. It can run at speeds of up to 200m/min.

Roger Pellow, Labelexpo managing director, said: ‘Even with eight months to go we can see that Labelexpo India will support the vibrant Indian label industry and provide a platform to present the latest innovations. There will be more working machinery and live demonstrations than ever before, ensuring the strong growth of the market and show. Labelexpo India will be the only event to be at for professionals in the Indian labeling industry this year and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to New Delhi in December.’

Labels India - India's exclusive magazine for the labels, converting and the package decoration industry will also be present at the show.
