ATE stand at PlastIndia 2018

ATE Enterprises, the printing and packaging solutions provider, has been serving the market for the last 75 years. The company started off during India’s freedom movement by selling high-quality German textile machinery to make a dent in the British monopoly of the industry. Over the years, ATE grew and diversified into manufacturing and industrial sales.

At Plastindia, ATE is showcasing a number of printing and converting solutions. Valence Electrons, part of the ATE group, has on display static control systems, ink handling systems and waste heat recovery systems. “At Plastindia, we are offering ATEX-certified static charge eliminators. We are the first Indian manufacturing company to offer the certified solution. These are highly efficient static eliminating bars which are designed for neutralizing electrostatic charges from fast moving films, paper and other non-conductive substrates. Online static monitor and online static measuring systems provide indication and alarms by measuring electrostatic charges on a moving web,” said Ashok Sethuram, director of Valence Electrons.

Print and packaging equipment (PPE) is a business unit of ATE Enterprises. It is the only Indian manufacturer of register controllers for rotogravure presses. Register controllers have been the mainstay for PPE and new product additions include vision systems to monitor print during production runs. “So far, there has been either an entry-level web video or a 100% web inspection system available for rotogravure printers. So, a need for felt for for a complete web viewing system for monitoring full length of the web in real-time. This led us to come up with the ViewAXIS Tera. In addition to this, DetectAXIS tera, a print defect detection system spots printing defects that are not visible to the naked eye. The system generates alarms and warnings as soon as a defect is spotted, which then alerts the operator to take corrective measures,” said Anand Mehta, vice president and head of Print and Packaging Equipment (Operations) at ATE.

Sharing his views on ATE’s participation in Plastindia, Amey Pangarkar, executive – Marketing at ATE said, “We are an enterprise that offers a wide range of solutions. We have always been successful in attracting customers, thanks to the unique solutions that we have in our portfolio of products. Plastindia has been an important event for us.

Overall, this edition is proving out to be no different and we’re quite expectant of positive results.”
