Naph Graphics demonstrated three products at PrintPack India 2017—the Koncept web offset tower, which was launched eight years ago; the Slitline slitter rewinder with speeds up to 350 m/min with web width up to 1300 mm; and an online stacker.

“The web offset is specially designed for newspaper and book printing. The space-saving machine has an integrated reel stand underneath. It has the same height as the conventional 4-Hi tower but we have incorporated some highly innovative features in the press,” said Praveen Burman, director – marketing at Naph Graphics.

“The main strength of Naph is its flexibility in designing and integrating the web offset press. We are not limited to a fixed design but rather provide customized products to our customers,” says Burman about Naph’s web offset presses. “We are also the pioneer in integrated reel stand.”

Speaking about the newspaper industry, Burman said, “The newspaper industry is undergoing a downfall. So if we talk about the current scenario, the installation of new machines has gone down drastically. Newspaper companies now prefer to opt for a single press instead of having two or more presses within a 300 km area. So, almost everyone today is looking at cost cutting in the industry.”

FujifilmThe slitter rewinder at Naph’s stand also garnered a very good response. Mohit Bansal, assistant director – marketing at Naph Graphics said, “We have tried to keep the quality of our slitter very high. It has pneumatic shafts from Resources, all automation systems are from E + L while the drive is from Siemens and powered by E + L. In addition to these, we are using advanced cutting systems including rotary cutters and razor blades. The slitter is ideal for plastic films, flexible packaging laminates, paper and aluminum foil based laminates.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
