Mumbai’s Kohli Industries to launch Thea AR-360

Efficient short-run gravure press at Open House

Kohli Industries’ new gravure press, Thea AR-360

An international Open House organized by Mumbai-based Kohli Industries will be held in the first half of August 2015. Meeting the demands of local and overseas clients, the event will be used to launch the company’s latest ELS gravure printing press, the Thea AR-360, showcasing the advanced technologies that it has incorporated in this press. A high number of visitors are expected are expected to attend the event at the Kohli factory in Mumbai.
A family run company in business for over 40 years, Kohli manufactures rotogravure printing presses, coaters, laminators and slitter-rewinders. A frequent participant in major international exhibitions, the company’s equipment installations are currently spread over 25 countries.

Commenting on the new launch, the company’s director, Kaku Kohli, says, “Many special and unique features have been designed in this new press. We wish to highlight how our customers will benefit from these features in their daily production.” The main advantage is the simple and quick changeover of printing jobs, enabling customers to accept short-run orders without any fear of losing valuable time or excess wastage. Other special features help to lower the cost of daily production by consuming less power, lower ink and solvent consumption with minimum labour.

“Converters can gain considerably by attending this Open House. The emphasis is on power saving, low consumption of inks and solvents, low wastage of expensive materials and use of minimum labour. A major challenge to overcome in any gravure press is to allow cost-effective short-runs. The Thea AR-360 is an ideal solution for this problem,” Kohli says.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
