At Plastivision 2020, Mumbai-based Multigraph Machinery Company Limited (MMCL), the trading wing of Manugraph for packaging machinery, promoted and talked about its entire portfolio of solutions and also demonstrated a slitter and rewinder from Perfect Printgraph. MMCL markets brands such as Kohli Industries, Manugraph, Rajoo-Kohli and Perfect Printgraph, among others.

We are promoting all the products that we market. Last year has been very good and all our products have been very well received. The products we market have been able to compete well with all the major established brand from across the globe. We have been focusing on offering great technology and are not bothered about competing on price. That is not our philosophy,” said Hiten Mehta of MMCL.

Talking about Kohli Industries, Mehta said that very soon the company will come out with a new solution for the rotogravure printing industry. For Rajoo-Kohli, he said that the market has received the venture very favorably. Last year, Rajoo Engineers and Kohli Industries organized an open house on 5-6 September at Rajoo’s manufacturing near Rajkot to showcase the new extrusion coating and lamination machine – Lamex.

This year we expect to sell a number of units of the new extrusion coating and lamination machine. This new solution has been very well received by the market,” Mehta added. The Lamex has a speed of 200 meters per minute and coating range of 10-40 gsm. It has a die width of 1450 mm while the plasticizing capacity of the extruder is 60 mm-140 kg/hr.

The MMCL stand at Plastivision also had a live demonstration of high-speed slitter and rewinder by Perfect Printgraph. The Elite Slit 400 series, which was running at the stand, has a speed of 450 meters per minute and features asynchronous AC servo motor with digital drive. It has a shaftless and separate unwind station as well.

Talking about the response at Plastivision, Mehta said that the show was very well attended. “Plastivision 2020 has been an excellent show for us. We were busy till 6 p.m. every day. A large number of visitors came to our stand with serious inquiries. The start of the year has been good and we hope that the trend continues,” Mehta concluded.
