Zhongke India’s automatic YS SR 108 laminator

A highly stable high-speed dry lamination machine

From sturdiness to good aesthetics, boosting color, and drastically enhancing longevity, lamination offers many benefits for printed products and packaging. This saves you time and money in the long run and conserves paper, a crucial natural resource. Zhongke India claims that the YS SR 108 laminator is the most stable lamination machine available in the market. Its design is focused on high speed with consistent quality at a low energy cost.

Speaking about the dry lamination machine, Rohit Rajpal, director at Zhongke India, says, "Traditionally, lamination was seen as a useful step in the printing process to provide protection or add stiffness, but now the market is understanding the possibilities. Laminated packages provide creative designs and embellishments, besides adding better shelf life to the packaging."

The YS SR laminator is compatible with a variety of substrates, post-print processes, and embellishments, for nearly any application, from rigid boxes to folding cartons, menu cards, premium labels that go on wine bottles, health and beauty supplies, and FMCG packaging, and, most importantly, for specialty food packaging.

The functionality of the laminator includes a design speed of the machine is up to 100 meters a minute, with an average production speed of 80 meters a minute. It produces sheets that lay flat and without curling on substrates from 100 to 550 gsm. The YS SR 108 has a high pile feeder for continuous non-stop production and is compatible with various types of lamination films, including BOPP, PET, metallized PET, holographic, anti-scuff, silky, matt, velvet, linen films, from 6 to 35 microns, and biodegradable films. The laminator delivery has an auto-rejection system in the case of uncut sheets that can be salvaged to reduce wastage.

Rajpal adds, "Our machines are future-ready. Optimized for high-quality production to minimize wastage, the machines are energy efficient with high productivity and low power consumption. The machines are designed to run biodegradable films, thus contributing toward sustainable production successfully," he concludes.

Zhongke India has now established numerous packaging converting equipment installations at different locations across India. Best known for its automatic rigid box-making machines, its range of packaging solutions includes a high-speed dry lamination machine and other converting equipment for automatic die-cutting and foiling, litho lamination, corrugation, and paper bag production. It provides equipment for manufacturing collapsible boxes, multi-utility case makers, window patching, folder gluers, and box assembly machines.

With this comprehensive range of packaging solutions, the company claims it has 60 successful installations in India and around 3,000 globally. The Indian customers include Replika Press, TCPL, Miraj Multicolor, Vijayshri, and Patanjali for lamination. After PrintPack, Zhongke India installed three Yongshun YS SR 108 automatic high-speed dry lamination machines at Printmann, TCPL, and Miraj Multicolor.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India hasdemonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India's real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
