Carbon Light launches ceramic-coated rollers at Indiaplast 2019

Trend for carbon fiber rollers set in the industry

Carbon Light team at Indiaplast 2019.

The decision to participate in Indiaplast 2019 came in the last minute for Carbon Light, observing the demand it witnessed from its customers who were visiting the show. Carbon Light has been allotted a stand in the converting hall, which has proved to be a huge benefit for the company as most of its customers have been allotted stands in the same hall and it has been easy for the company to attract a lot of packaging machine manufacturers.

Carbon Light launched ceramic coated rollers at Indiaplast 2019 for high-abrasion films. The company is targetting Uflex for this particular product as it feels that Uflex will find ideal use of these rollers in their packaging division.

I see the trend for carbon fiber rollers has already been set. Last time we participated in an exhibition was back in early 2018 during Plastindia exhibition. We were educating the visitors about carbon fiber rollers at Plastindia but this time, we have witnessed people coming to our stand to inquire about the availability of these rollers. People have now started noticing the potential and end applications of carbon fiber rollers,” says Anuj Bansal of Carbon Light.

The company seemed happy with the footfall at the show. A number of companies such as Manugraph, Pelican, Echaar, and Kabra visited Carbon Light’s stand to inquire about carbon fiber rollers. Some major machine manufacturing companies either enquired or promised to place an order to Carbon Light at the exhibition, according to Bansal. “It has taken these big players time to evaluate the product and carefully look for its potential use since our products can add value to their machines and benefit their customers. All this while, they were in consultation with their customers and are now turning up to place orders with us,” Bansal adds.

The company got confirmation for orders from five companies at Indiaplast. According to the inputs given by Bansal, Manugraph has already given the specifications and drawing sheets to Carbon Light for placing an order with the company, which will most probably be finalized by the end of the exhibition.

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 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.
