Erhardt + Leimer India (E+L) is a prominent leader in producing highly sophisticated web guiding and tension monitoring systems for textile, paper, film, foil and corrugating industries. The company started 25 years ago and is a 100% subsidy of E+L GmbH in Germany. In corrugation, E+L offers various forms of guiding systems developed mainly for web corrugated sheets.
“We particpiated in the event to make our presence felt among the convertors and showcase our diverse solutions in web guiding systems. CorrAligner Compact manages the web breaks and helps avoid breakdowns in the production process. The ELCORR compensating roller compensates the alignment differences, which mostly occur in a moving paper web. Besides web tension control, we have tailor-made solutions for measuring, inspection and print image monitoring systems, for which we feel the industry is yet to mature,” said ID Singh, vice president – sales, E+L.
Talking about the number of installations, Singh said, “Overall, we have over 40 installations of the CorrAligner and about 150 facilities for ELCORR among the Indian convertors.” On E+L’s recent installations of BHS machinery in India, Singh feels it is a good start for European manufacturers and it is imperative to have a positive outlook towards Indian corrugators. He confirmed that even E&L’s sales have doubled this year in India. Likewise, he expressed his interest in high graphics printing and other value additions that can likely increase the business revenue for corrugators. Eventually, it will spread out the gates for more automation technologies to be positioned at the convertor’s end.
