Naph Graphics Slitline 35 at PackPlus South

Packaging converting solutions

Naph Graphics team with the Slitline 35 at PackPlus South

At PackPlus South 2018, held in Hyderabad from 9-12 March, Naph Graphics exhibited its slitter rewinder Slitline 35. Naph has been a leading manufacturer of web offset presses since 1996. The company introduced the Slitline 35 slitter rewinders at PackPlus Delhi 2016, as it wanted to diversify into new areas such as packaging converting.

“We have participated in PackPlus South so that we can meet customers from South India where we do not have a major market share. Currently, most of our customers are based in North India,” said Mohit Bansal, assistant director – marketing, Naph Graphics.

The Slitline 35 has a maximum web width of 1,300 mm and maximum unwind diameter of 1,000 mm. Capable of running at a maximum speed of 350 meters per minute, the machine can handle plain films, coated films, metallized films, film, foil or paper laminates, paper and board.

Talking about the response at PackPlus South, Bansal said the first and the last days were slow but the second and the third days were very busy.

“We got many serious enquiries during the expo and hope to convert some of them in the coming months,” he said.

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.
