Africa, Middle East and local customers finalize Primaslits at PlastindiaSP Ultraflex’s dual turret Roboslit impresses overseas buyersMumbai-based SP Ultraflex had a live demonstration of the Roboslit RL dual turret slitter-rewinder at its full rated speed at Plastindia 2015. The Roboslit RL ran several times each day at 600 metres a minute, eliciting encouraging feedback from visitors. In addition to Robolit RL, SP Ultraflex also displayed Wir Rev web inspection rewinder at the company stand. At the exhibition, the stand had visitors of varied profiles such as customers, prospects, industry experts and competitors alike.Biku Kohli, director, SP Ultraflex with the Roboslit slitter-rewinder at the company stand.

Although the turnout of overseas customers in absolute numbers was low, we found that the majority of them were bonafide buyers and had travelled with a specific purpose in mind,” Biku Kohli, director, SP Ultraflex said.

In terms of enquiries, Kohli said that apart from regular enquiries for duplex slitter-rewinders, interest generated by the dual turret slitter-rewinder, Roboslit RL, was especially good. “We also had several instances of customers who had planned to finalize conventional duplex machines with us but after seeing the Roboslit in action, are considering this machine instead,” Kohli informed.

Kohli stated that the company had more than its share of serious enquiries, a good percentage of which are expected to convert into orders in the coming months. “As for orders booked during the exhibitions, these include Plastene Gandhinagar which finalized a Primaslit RL slitter-rewinder and MBR Ahmedabad which invested in a Primaslit slitter-rewinder. A couple of new customers from Africa and UAE also finalized their respective orders during the course of the show. The two machines on display were dispatched directly to the respective customers – Roboslit RL to Vishakha Polyfab Ahmedabad and Wir  Rev to Aditya Flexipack Kanpur. Overall it has been a satisfying experience,” Kohli concluded.
