Investment in technology to gain long-term benefits

The JX series high-speed folder gluer supplied by Robus India

Nashik-based Shweta Print O Pack, supplies to the automobile, electrical, food and pharmaceutical industries. The company recently installed a RI-JX-1200PC highspeed folder gluer from Robus India especially to run critical corrugated cartons around a couple of months ago. “This machine is sturdy with almost no sound and vibration that speaks volumes about the built of the machine. The entire process of installation was hassle-free and the Robus India team supported us well. We hope that this machine helps us gain customers and increase footprint in the market,” says Anil V Ghuge, managing director of Shweta Print O Pack.

“The main reason behind installing this machine from Robus India was to produce high volume lock-bottom cartons, offer partition within the cartons, and for E-flute boxes. The production speed has increased with the new technology in the machine and the fibre tear can be observed immediately upon picking the carton from the pressure conveyor on the delivery.

“There are several reasons why we purchased this machine from Robus India. Competitive price point at which the machine comes is one factor but more than that, certain features such as the carton alligner technology along with double side glue tank, lock bottom pre-folding device and auto removal of center conveyor worked in the favor of this investment. So far, our experience with this machine has been extremely well and we have started experiencing a surge in demand,” Ghuge explains.

Ghuge says that the decision also depended on the word of mouth publicity by some in the industry. The positive feedback helped drive the decision in favor of Robus India. With the new machine, Shweta is now able to provide accurately finished products in the market. It is now aiming to target new customers without affecting or compromizing the quality and reducing the time delay. Ghuge concludes, “The packaging production market is evolving. New designs are being introduced that make the products look attractive and unique on the shelves. I feel this was the right time for us to invest in a machine and I hope this decision paysoff well in the coming months.”

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.
