Alstrut India showcases their products and solutions at the 14th International Machine Tools Exhibition. The Exhibition is being held at the Chennai Trade Centre, Nungambakkam, Chennai, from 9-13 December 2021. ACMEE, organized by AIEMA, has been one of the flagship exhibitions in South India since 1994.

Alstrut is the largest partner of Universal Robots in India. Universal Robots is the world’s largest company in the collaborative robot space. Manufacturers have consciously started using collaborative robots because of the numerous benefits it brings to them, including simplicity of installation, space-saving, redeploy, and the lowest total cost of ownership.

Alstrut India to participate again in ACMEE 

Alstrut is excited to participate once again in ACMEE – Chennai’s flagship industrial expo. “Having been in the business of industrial automation providing assembly lines and end of line automation solutions for discrete manufacturing industries, we partnered with Universal Robots about four years ago. Today, we have emerged to be one of India’s largest companies in the collaborative robot space, with over 200 robots deployed in India and globally, in verticals ranging from automobile, auto-component, electrical, electronics, FMCG, food, packaging, and pharma,” said Anuj Bihani, managing director, Alstrut India.

ACMEE sees exhibitors worldwide displaying their latest and cutting-edge technologies, including robotics, machine tool, metrology, automation and controls, among many others. With a specific focus on Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0, many participants use this platform to launch and showcase their newest machines and technological advancements. While a large part of the visitors is from across Tamil Nadu, this expo also attracts visitors from other parts of India.

Alstrut India is also partnered with other companies in the collaborative space, including MiR, Robotiq, OnRobot, amongst many others, thereby widening the solutions offered, such as machine tending, assembly, glue dispensing, welding, and palletizing. Alstrut is constantly working on adjacent technologies that accelerate the deployment of robots at MSME companies in India.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
