Participating since 2005 in PrintPack India, Gujarat-based Excel Machinery will launch its new Maxima, 28 x 40-inch automatic diecutter with stripping process. “In the packaging segment, converters looking for larger size diecutters to expand their existing setup can opt for the 28 x 40-inch diecutter. A stripping section, which is optional in the new product, can remove the side and rear trim and offers faster turnaround times. The maximum output of the new diecutter is around 7,500 sheets an hour,” says Jitendra Patel, owner of Excel Machinery.

In its 153 square metre stand the company will also exhibit its regular product Maxima EXB35 postpress, which crossed 26 installations in the last year. “Being an indigenous manufacturer, we are satisfied to meet the rising demands with automation at economically viable rates,” he adds.

According to Patel, the previous PrintPack shows have been fruitful for the company, “We received a positive response in all the previous editions of the show and often took spot orders. In the previous show itself, we sold around five machines.” Keeping abreast of the latest demands, Excel Machinery has achieved a leading position in the diecutting segment.

According to Patel, PrintPack India is an auspicious platform for the company where it was successful in selling their first automatic diecutter. Excel Machinery has installed around 140 machines in India and also expanded its factory and capacity to manufacture 36 machines annually.

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 grown 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.
