Rajoo’s 5-layer blown film line

Constantia Creative Polypack, a part of Constantia Group, has recently installed a 5-layer POD blown film line from Rajoo Engineers Limited at its Kolkata plant

Srikanta Khatua, head of operation creative sub-cluster, Constantia Flexibles – India, said that Constantia has been using Rajoo’s technology at its Puducherry plant and has been impressed by their consistency, and their after-sales service is very good. 

“During the last years, we have also experienced Rajoo in context to its supply, service, and support at the Puducherry plant. I must say, we were extremely satisfied,” Khatua said. 

Rajoo said that Constantia installation drives home the point that the films produced from this machine are benchmarked with the best-in-class flexible packaging laminates, locally and globally. Constantia has compared the sample films from the market with the product made on the Rajoo 5-layer line, and they find it superior, the company said. 

Doshi speaks about Rajoo offering the right technologies

“The agenda of ‘excellence in extrusion’ globally stems from the unique concept embarked on by Rajoo as offering ‘Appropriate Technology’ for business. For us at Rajoo, gone is the era to build specifications for competitive advantages; it’s now time to identify just the right technologies and its mix to add value to the client business. Over-specifications only add on to customer costs and not his business,” said Khushboo Chandrakant Doshi, executive director, Rajoo Engineers Limited. 

The supply to Constantia included a blown film line with five grooved feed barrier screw extruders, hydraulically actuated screen changers, cylindrical spiral die (CSD) for film width of 2,500 mm, rated output of 750 kgs/hour. The unique ‘flatness enhancer,’ a first for the Indian industry, improved the film flatness for converting processes. A dual station fully automatic load cell-controlled surface winder was also an integral part of this solution. In addition, the supply to Constantia India also included an elaborate automation package including a material conveying system, material dosing system, automatic thickness profile control, and more. 

Constantia Group completed the acquisition of Creative Polypack Limited in March 2018. Creative Polypack Limited was founded in 1986 and achieved sales of about 75 million Euro in its business year ending March 31, 2018. It currently has about 850 employees at eight production sites in Baddi, Kanpur, Kolkata, Assam, and Puducherry in northern, eastern, and southern India.
