Another major project completed by Nordmeccanica in the Coating Lacquering industry segment. The customer, a film manufacturer, has purchased an Horizontal model so to be able to offer to converters a semi-finished product completing the product portfolio of its films with a variety of coatings in accordance to current trends in the industry. Machine features the unsurpassed drying technology pioneered by Nordmeccanica and able to offer unprecedented production performances while optimizing energy efficiency. The Horizontal model, the top of the line in the Nordmeccanica product range, stands in a league of its own for quality standards and overall performances and scrap reduction.
Machine will allow to handle primers, coatings, releases and a large variety of water or solvent based applications. Interchangeable coating heads, a technology introduced by Nordmeccanica during the 70s, offers the possibility to install every single coating head available in the range: Rotogravure; Close Chamber doctor Blade rotogravure; Semi Flexo; Offset gravure; Flexo; Flexo Special, and several others covering every possible need in the industry.
Film manufacturers represent a quickly growing segment among the Nordmeccanica reference list. Nordmeccanica is in fact the one source for their needs both in Vacuum metallization and film coating.
Machine was completed on time as for every other delivery completed during the pandemics. The unique approach to components sourcing allowed for a punctuality that as well offers no equal in the industry, eventually rewarded by the growth registered by Nordmeccanica in 2021.
Bostik joins forces with Nordmecannica over the purchase of world-class lamination equipment, strengthening its position in flexible lamination in the wake of the acquisition of Ashland’s high performance adhesive and in-line with Arkema’s sustainability strategy.
PARIS, 25 November 2021
Bostik, the Adhesive Solutions segment of Arkema, signed today a purchase contract with Nordmeccanica, one of the world's leading lamination machines suppliers, for the furniture of a cutting-edge commercial laminator, to bolster its global R&D efforts on flexible lamination and further diversify its offering of sustainable smart adhesive solutions.
The new state-of-the-art equipment will be based in Bostik's Shanghai R&D center, and primarily serve the flexible packaging converting industry, which provides adhesive solutions for food and beverage, fast moving consumer goods, pharmaceutical and industrial applications in the Asia Pacific region.
It will allow Bostik to deliver more sustainable, high quality and innovative adhesive solutions to customers in Asia Pacific and around the world, with areas such as solvent-free solutions, low monomer solutions, and solutions that serve the growing need for monomaterial packaging, among the ones that will receive particular focus.
By enabling Bostik teams to reproduce the exact production processes that its clients implement, it will also help speed up the pace at which innovations are developed and brought to the market, contributing to the prompt diffusion of more sustainable adhesive solutions for the packaging industry.
Finally, the new laminator will lead to strengthening the Bostik’s Flex Pack Academy, a knowledge center on flexible lamination and adhesive solutions, thus contributing to expanding the knowledge on flexible lamination through the whole value chain.
“Working with partners such as Nordmeccanica will enable us to deliver superior and safe products to our customers, and at the same time unlock our potential in continuously delivering high performance and sustainable solutions. This is perfectly in line with Bostik’s strategy to forge purposeful partnerships that contribute to our Group’s ambition to create innovative materials for a more sustainable world.” commented Richard Lelievre, Senior Vice President of the Advanced Packaging Business Unit at Bostik.
In the wake of the acquisition of Ashland’s performance adhesives business, this new partnership further strengthens Bostik’s global position in flexible lamination, a steadily growing market, thus actively contributing to Arkema’s ambitious growth strategy.

Due to the rise in the global pandemic, Nordmeccanica is informing our customers that the travelling restriction policy implemented by our Corporate offices have been extended until the end of the month of October for those travels that are not essential for start-ups and service calls.
Consequently, we had to cancel the attendance at our booth for the Las Vegas Pack Expo.
We were hoping that Pack Expo would of have been the first show after the first wave of the pandemic.
Unfortunately, the unstable situation with the ongoing pandemic imposed the extension of the travel ban.
We do remain available to our customers at our usual contact points and wish for the possibility to meet face to face next Year at Chicago.
The Minister: “A company able to size the great opportunities of the ecological transition process”

Printing Technology & Innovation Days for Flexible Packaging
Jakarta, Indonesia | 20/21 March 2019
The “Image-to-Print” roadshow set up by Janoschka, Nordmeccanica, Rossini,
Siegwerk and Windmöller & Hölscher had again invited the packaging market
to a further “Image-to-Print” event. The roadshow had its recent stop-over in
Jakarta on March 20/21. After 2011 this was the second conference for the
Indonesian emerging market.
The touring event, which has been running with huge success since 2009, is dedicated to
supporting local printers, brand owners and the finishing industry. The workshops provide an
insight into the best practices of gravure and flexographic printing and highlight global trends
in the packaging industry.
The workshop’s focal point is on the requirements and conditions of the local market. The
program focuses specifically on market developments, strategies and technical innovations
in printing inks and printing tools as well as printing and laminating machines for gravure and
Besides presentations and think tank discussions, the agenda of the two-days conference
offered the more than 200 guests a visit to PT. Siegwerk Indonesia, a leading worldwide
manufacturer of printing inks for packaging. The visit provided insights into the production
and development of printing ink solutions for sustainable packaging.
Successful brand management with sustainable colours was the topic of the additionally
provided workshop class „Print Color Management - Fingerprint & Profiling“. Siegwerk and
Janoschka experts gave a lecture on the most important asset of a brand, namely colour,
and its consistent printing and hence sustainable presentation - no matter on what
supermarket shelf in the world.
The symposium in Jakarta is the twentieth stop for the very successful Image-to-Print
roadshow, which has already visited Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Brazil, Argentina, Dubai,
Mexico, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Philippines, China, South Africa
