Mumbai-based Robatech, with headquarters in Switzerland, is one of the leading manufacturers of high quality systems for industrial glue applications. Robatech showcased products for sustainable processing of hot melt adhesives and cold glues for the printing, converting and web printing industry at Pamex 2015.

Neeraj Sharma, managing director of Robatech India, has over 25 years of experience in varied fields of packaging, automation, consumables and other industrial products. Speaking to Packaging South Asia, he said, “Our innovative technology reduces glue consumption. The Concept series can be easily integrated into any production facility due to its modular structure. The hot melt units are efficient and are involved in the processing of thermoplastic hot melts. Moreover, the improved heat up time and the Cool Touch isolation support a sustainable hot melt adhesive application. Concept Diamond is the newest model of the Concept Series with an integrated touchscreen and process control software for monitoring essential functions.”

Talking about the close collaboration with WH Leary, Sharma said, “Robatech Group and WH Leary have agreed on a partnership which will allow both companies to support their customers with valuable products and services across the globe. The Robatech-Leary partnership offers a complete range of high-value solutions for the paper convertingmarket. The solutions extend from the most economical hot or cold adhesive application systems to highly sophisticated bespoke gluing and quality assurance systems for manufacturers of solid board and corrugated boxes, bags, envelopes, liquid fill solutions and folding cartons.”

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.
