Rajkot-based Rajoo Engineers launched the Nonafoil, a nine-layer blown film extrusion line for flexible packaging, at the PlastFocus exhibition in Dwarka. Apart from the Nonafoil, the company showcased the Lamina rPET, sheet extrusion line, and technology for CPVC compounding.

The Nonafoil runs at a speed of 350 kilograms an hour and processes high-barrier recyclable film solutions for various applications, from food packaging to thermoformable film. It enables producers to achieve unprecedented levels of film performance and recyclability, the company said in a release.

The Nonafoil generates films with less than 5% EVOH while maintaining essential oxygen barrier properties, enabling recyclability without compromising barrier properties.

The Lamina rPET, on the other hand, transforms PET bottle flakes into high-quality sheets, closing the loop in plastic production processes. With outputs reaching up to 1400 kilograms per hour, the Lamina rPET aims to promote recycled plastics and sustainable practices.

Khushboo Doshi, managing director of Rajoo Engineers, stated, “At Rajoo, we are driven by the pursuit of excellence. Our solutions not only elevate performance but also redefine sustainability standards, ensuring a better future for generations to come.”

Doshi complimented the PlastFocus organizing team for the venue at IICC-Yashobhoomi in Sector 25 Dwarka as it is easily accessible from most parts of Delhi-NCR. She also seemed positively excited with the footfall at Rajoo Engineers’ stand.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
