Mumbai-based SP Ultraflex’s participation at Indiaplast 2019 has been very successful as the company has used the event as a platform to bring together many of its customers as well as meet new ones.

“When we were first approached by the organizers a few months back, we were sceptical regarding our participation. However, we took a call to go ahead, participate and demonstrate our ROBOSLIT OHP slitter-rewinder. We believe we made a right decision given the kind of footfall we have seen during all the days. Five of our important customers got together at our stand and appreciated the upgrades that we have made to the ROBOSLIT,” says Biku Kohli, managing director, SP Ultraflex.

The ROBOSLIT OHP that is on display at SP Ultraflex’s stand has been sold to a converter based in the NCR. According to Kohli, SP Ultraflex has sold 26 ROBOSLIT machines since its launch five years ago and eight of them, including the one that is on display at Indiaplast, have been sold in the North Indian region.

“There have been many repeat orders for ROBOSLIT as the customers have realized that once they get used to the dual turret technology, it is hard to go back,” he adds.

The company is commemorating the fifth anniversary year of the ROBOSLIT and has had multiple live demonstrations of the machine at its stand at Indiaplast 2019, where it has run at speeds of 800 m/min on all days. The machine has evolved continuously over the years. While it was launched in 2014 with a modest speed of 500 m/min, the speed of the machine is currently at 800 m/min for the standard version and 1000 m/min for the enhanced, ‘plus’ version.

The company is now preparing for its participation at the K show slated for October this year in Germany. “Unfortunately, we could not get a big enough stand at K show where we could demonstrate the ROBOSLIT. And we did not want to show some other smaller machines. So, we have decided that since we cannot have a live demonstration of the ROBIOSLIT, we will have some kind of virtual demonstration. We are currently planning on that,” says Kohli.

After the K show, SP Ultraflex will be seen at drupa 2020. Kohli says he is hoping the company gets a big enough stand which can accommodate the ROBOSLIT.

SP Ultraflex is in Hall 14, Stand C1.

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.
