Kalpvrux launches new slitting and rewinding machine

Indiaplast 2019: Focus on overseas market

At Indiaplast 2019, Kalpvrux launched its new slitting and rewinding machine, which is equipped with some robotics. The company managed to get in touch with some existing customers and also interacted with some new prospects during the show.

"There are a lot of variables and we are constantly trying to convert them into constants; we’ve succeded to an extent with this machine. My profile in the company is only to design the equipment. I am also responsible for forecasting the upcoing technologies and make sure that they are included in the machines we manufacture because most of our machines are exported to other countries and people in the West are pretty strict with the technology that they invest in," says Anup Mishra, director of Kalpvrux.

The sliting and rewinding machine launched by the company runs at 800 mpm. Slitting and rewinding machines typically have a very low efficiency – anywhere close to 25% to 30% – which means that in 24 hours taking the loading and unloading time also into consideration, a lot is lost on efficiency. Hence, effectively in 24 hours, if a machine runs at 800 mpm, it rolls out 200 mpm. "With Kalpvrux equipment, there is at least 33% increase in efficiency, which can go up to 75%. The downtime for unloading the finished product and loading raw materials is too low because of the additional robotics in the machine," explains Mishra.

The company is also popular for its excellent post-sale services. It has four offices in India and maintains its stock of spares in various countries such as Kenya, Thailand, Turkey and various other countries. The company has installed more than 2000 machines worldwide. A particular winder that the company manufactures has been installed at more than 10,000 units worldwide. The company didn't manage to sell many machines in 2018 but that didn't take a toll on its profits since they managed to get good prices for the machines it sold. Going ahead, the company plans to focus only on the overseas market as it feels there is less saturation and better investors and the market operates without any fuss overseas.

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.
