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.

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.
