Excel Machinery shows diecutting and blanking machine at PrintPack India 2022

Live demos and customer referrals bring repeat and new sales

For Excel Machinery, the PrintPack event was again successful. The company sold four autoplaten die-cutting machines and three automated blanking machines. "From the first day, the footfalls took flight and kept the visitors aboard until the last day," said Manish Patel, director, Excel Machinery. The company exhibited its larger Maxima HS1020 automatic die-cutting (punching), its Maxima EXB 35 die-cutter, and an automatic blanking with a somewhat novel approach at the event. The tooling for the blanking machines is a simple plastic cutout in the shape of the package that looks like it can be economically produced everywhere on a simple jigsaw machine. The Maxima HS 1020 has a maximum sheet size of 28 x40-inches and a die-cutting and creasing capability of 7,500 sheets an hour. The Maxima EXB 35 has a maximum sheet size of 25 x 35-inch and a cutting speed of 5,000 sheets an hour. "We have an in-house production unit for producing the automatic die-cutter and blanking machines. We don't import spare parts for the manufacturing of the device. Our product is made in India," said Patel. The company, to date, has installed 307 die-cutting machines in different regions of India and gives services and consumables to all its customers at a very reasonable cost. Of this total 48 Excel Maxima die-cutters are installed in the Mumbai area itself. Patel noted that PrintPack has always been a favorite venue for the company since it has always resulted in landing successful sales agreements. He anticipates strong results this time, with numerous enquiries flooding in for the larger Maxima HS 1020 that was being demonstrated live. He stated that the event had prompted the firm to receive repeat purchases and new orders from existing customer's referrals.

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 hasdemonstrated 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.
