Mumbai-based Kunal Enterprises endorsed its new alliance with Toppan Printing,
Japan and showcased their assortment of products including the EP-Pak at Pamex
2015. Kunal Gandhi, executive to president, Kunal Enterprises, said, “The EP-Pak is a seven-layer paper liquid container with film barrier for a long life of products. With its outstanding content preservation properties, EP-Pak enables long-term storage at room temperature. Full-surface printing enhances the look of the pack. The distinguishing feature of the seven-layer film is that it is without an aluminium foil. Hence, it is easy to dispose
and even metal detectors can be used on production lines to check for foreign objects inside the pack.
Kunal Enterprises is a one-stop solution for press and prepress solutions in screen printing and offset printing. The company also showcased Sakurai’s fully automatic cylinder, flatbed and roll-to-roll cylinder screen printing machine through illustrations for printing of applications like electronics and industrial labels. “Various applications can be done by a
Sakurai machine as a value addition to commercial, packaging and publishing printers to get amazing effects with the help of UV including 3D effects with optically clear varnish and glitter UV among others,” said Gandhi. Speciality screen inks, 3Dsoftware and lenticular lens for printing, 3D solutions and 3D effects by micro array dots lens sheets for flexible circuits, membrane switches and RFID were other products displayed at the company stand.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
