Mumbai-based Kabra Extrusiontechnik (KET) is an Indian manufacturer and part of the renowned Kolsite Group. With over 5 decades’ experience, more than 11,000 installations and presence in more than 84 countries, KET enjoys a leadership position in the extrusion market. Last year, the company made a series of achievements such as a strategic partnership with European companies and was awarded the prestigious National Award under the Industry Category of ‘Innovation of Polymer Processing Machinery & Equipment’ for its product— High Speed Telecom Micro-duct Extrusion Line.
‘Develop the product as per the evolving needs’ is chief mantra for SV Kabra, managing director at Kabra Extrusiontechnik. Speaking to us at the Plastvision India event, Kabra said, “We are a 50-year-old company. We initiated the business by manufacturing extrusion machines for the pipe. In pipe sector, we are doing very well and we also hold the largest shares in the segment. For packaging, we came up with a 7-layer blown film machinery. Recently, we have also entered into a partnership with US-based Gloucester Engineering.”
The company strives to design the systems accurately to produce the barrier film at rates and quality levels that not only meet or exceed the market’s requirements but also result in enhanced operational efficiency and higher flexibility for plastic manufacturers. Over a period, the demand for new engineered polymers and productivity has increased to up to 700–800 kg/hr.
Collaboration with Penta Systems India aided the company in the manufacturing and trading of auto feeding systems for the plastics and food processing industries. According to Kabra, every plastic processing machine manufacturer has a niche market to cater to and he has been rather optimistic about the growth of flexible films.
At the Plastivision stand, Kabra Extrusiontechnik showcased a 5225 model of PVC pipe extrusion machinery and its die mold. Kabra is a premier manufacturer and exporter of extrusion plants, which offers optimal solutions to plastics processors across the globe.
