Naph Graphics establishes its footprint among converters

Slitline 35 – Naph’s slitter rewinder for flexible and paper packaging

tSlitline 35, the new slitter rewinder machine from Naph Graphics

Established in the year 1996, Naph Graphics has been serving the print industry with breakthrough machines. Naph also manufactures customized machines based on the unique requirements of customers in addition to offering attachments and additional parts for presses. Soon after strengthening its position as one of the leading companies in manufacturing and export of web offset presses, Naph decided to diversify and serve the converting machinery by developing slitter rewinders.

Naph’s slitter rewinder, Slitline 35, comes with a maximum web width of 1300 mm and a minimum slit width of 50 mm. The machine is capable of handling plain films, coated films, metallized films, foils and paper laminates from 12-200 microns and paperboard from 40-200 gsm. Running at a maximum speed of up to 350 meters per minute, the machine is controlled and supervised by PLC or PPC. This automation system maintains synchronization between PLC or PPC and drives, offering fast and reliable communication.

Naph Graphics also exports its machines to countries like Canada, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and others.

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 growing 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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
