Bhargav Mistry, managing director of Grafica

Grafica, a manufacturer of screen printing machines for the graphics, industrial and textile industry, has been operating in the printing industry for more than 29 years. Celebrating its 30th anniversary on 5 Feburary, Grafica is displaying a range of its latest screen printing machines at Printpack 2019. During the last edition of the show, the company displayed its prepress equipment. This year, the company launched its Nano-print 1015 with touch screen controls.

The Nano-print 1015 is a semi-automatic screen printing machine for screen printers. The machine has a print area of 10 to 15 inches and is easy to operate. It is equipped with serveral features including a microprocessor with touch screen controls, high quality electrical and electronic components, high quality screen fabrication, compact and powerful vacuum blower to hold the substrate firmly while printing, hard nickel-plated metal parts to avoid corrosion, and high safety standards.

According to Bhargav Mistry, managing director of Grafica, “The machine will cater to the small segments of the printing industry. It will allow manual printers to shift to automation. This year we have been visited by manual printers who are looking for affordable automation solution. The machine will cater to their needs at a low cost.”

The Nano print is also available on monthly installments making it an affordable option. The company has sold over 50 Nano-print machines during the show. Overall, we have booked orders for over Rs 2 crores within four days of the show, making it a successful year for us,” Mistry expresses. The company plans to expand its business in the textile industry in near future by launching new products.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
