Carbon Light, a manufacturer and supplier of carbon fiber rollers, will participate in K 2019 in Dusseldorf, Germany that takes place from 16 to 24 October 2019. “The first half of 2019 was very slow for us as far as regular rollers are concerned. However, a lot of our customers were in the initial trials and evaluation phase of carbon fiber composite rollers. We have been successful in helping them implement and evaluate the enhancement in the performance of the rollers for their applications. After a slow phase, regular orders are promised for the coming months,” says Anuj Bansal, technical manager of Carbon Light.

Carbon Light has always had an eye on the export aspect of its carbon fiber composite rollers. These rollers have been successful over the years and have found good acceptance among OEMs for their standard machines. Bansal adds, “At K 2019, we wish to catch their attention and provide them economical solutions without compromizing on the performance of the products.”

At the show, Carbon Light looks to target Davis Standard, one of the leading lamination machine manufacturers and suppliers and Atlas Titan for their slitting and rewinding machines. Carbon Light will display rollers to supply to individual processes be it blown film extrusion, lamination, slitting and rewinding, printing or packaging. According to Bansal, “Each process has its own set of challenges that we have managed to overcome with our solutions over the last few years. The rollers offered by us have become a standard offering providing various surface coatings such as hard, elastomeric and electrically conductive.”

By participating in K 2019, the company looks to gain some recognition globally and become a regular supplier to some of the world’s leading machine manufacturers. “We’re also interested in the upgrade and spares of these rollers as the market for them is huge. Setting up local agents will also be a possible approach that we will consider.

The newly implemented laws against single-use plastics have impacted the market and with this exhibition, we wish to strengthen our stand by entering markets that are not too susceptible to change,” Bansal concludes.

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 has demonstrated 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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
