At the Uflex stand in the show, Sachin Dahake, deputy general manager – marketing (cylinder division), Uflex said, “We are here because out of our cylinder business, we have started a new laser engraving line in Noida, which is a fully automatic plant where one person can produce up to 60 cylinders a day.”
Uflex’s embossing cylinders are primarily aimed at people having their own tanneries or those producing genuine leather, who use these cylinders for embossing or printing various kinds of effects on the leather surface. The other market for these embossing cylinders is leatherite, which is basically artificial leather used for making ladies’ purse, sofa covers, seat covers, etc.
“In India, IILF is the biggest exhibition for leather and leatherite. Most of the people exhibiting at the show here either have their own leather tannery or are producers of leatherite. Some of them are our esteemed customers. So, we thought it would be a good platform to have a direct contact with them and close a few good deals,” informed Dahake.
