Several instruments are available to measure more than 50 material properties, including adhesion, abrasion, friction, compression, tensile strength, impact, internal bond, softness and thickness, consistency control loop, motorized basis weight valve, auto guide and other paper mill spares. 

At the recently concluded IndiaCorr Expo in Greater Noida, Global Engineering displayed its ring crush tester, bursting strength tester, cobb sizing tester, moisture meter and other quality control related machines.

VK Gupta, manager of sales and services, Global Engineering Corporation, was present at the stand at the show and shared his experience on the exhibition, “This is the fifth edition we are participating in. We are not anticipating a large crowd here. For the past year and a half, the Covid-19 problem has persisted. However, I believe the industry is rebounding in general, and things should only get better in the future.”

Global Engineering received positive reception at IndiaCorr

IndiaCorr Expo was the first corrugated packaging event in India since the Covid-19 pandemic that physically brought the Indian corrugation industry together. Despite being concerned about the exhibition’s attendance, Global Engineering received a positive reception from the event, according to Gupta.

In conversation, Gupta spoke about the audience his company is targeting, “Ballarpur Industries, JK Paper, ITC, Britannia, Parle, Hindustan Unilever, Helios pharmaceuticals, Amul and other leading industry are our clients. Global Engineering is coping with the pandemic by giving solutions to the industry by working on the interface solution application that can work from a distance. The client should fix the problem by sitting far from the plant itself.”

Gupta continued by discussing the company’s future expansion goals, “Today we are operating factories and offices in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Roorkee, Jaipur, Coimbatore, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Delhi and Cuttack. We are planning to expand our operations, manufacturing and production units further.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects 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 a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
