Reifenhäuser (India) Marketing Ltd. (RIML), a leading solution provider for packaging industry, had an eventful Drupa 2016 where it struck multiple deals with leading players in the flexible packaging and labels industry. One of the highlights was an agreement signed for Comexi F2 MB flexographic press & 5-layer co-extrusion Blown Film Line to Kolkata based Creative Polypack, leader in Flexible Packaging in the region.
“This new investment by Creative Polypack will help in their further expansion and growth in the flexible packaging industry. This is also an indication of greater penetration of flexographic technology in the Indian Packaging Industry,” says Mr. Manish Mehta, Managing Director of Reifenhäuser (India) Marketing Ltd.
According to Mr. Mehta, “Indian packaging industry will continue to see increase in the number of installations of flexographic presses in coming time. The success of the technology has been due to substantial improvement in the pre-press technology and advent of gearless press. We expect all together additional six to seven flexographic presses to be installed in the country in the remaining part of 2016, & will try to get good market share out of it”, added Mr. Mehta.
In addition to Comexi, RIML also inked deals to sell AVT defect inspection system to Mumbai based Webtech Labels and Hyderabad based Pragati. Increased adoption of defect detection system is another trend that Mr. Mehta believes will become widespread in the packaging industry. RIML has more than 100 installations of AVT inspection systems in India and is the market leader in the country.
“Share of AVT inspection systems is substantial over all & galloping at rapid pace and we expect to continue this way,” he says.
Reifenhäuser (India) Marketing Ltd. not only had a successful Drupa but there have been some important installations in the recent past as well. The highlight of recent months has been installation of 3-layer co-extrusion Blown Film Line from Reifenhäuser Blown Film GmbH, Germany at Bangalore’s Manjushree Technopack Limited. Reifenhäuser Blown Film GmbH supplied their third generation EVOLUTION series of blown film line of 2600 mm face width to suit various film application with major focus on collation shrink film required by Manjushree, at their Bidadi plant located in Bangalore.
“We have known Manjushree for a very long time but this is our first official big business with the company. Manjushree has been already providing PET solutions to leading beverage players in the country and with this new investment they can now venture into shrink film packaging. This is a natural progression for the company,” Mr. Mehta says.
One more 3-layer co-extrusion Blown Film Line of 2600 mm width has also been successfully & independently installed by RIML service team in Chemco Group of Companies at their Vadodara plant recently.
Finally, talking about the success of RIML, Mr. Mehta says the biggest reason is that there is a highly trained technical support team which fully takes care of not only local clients but overseas customers as well in terms of installation, commissioning & after sales support.
“We make sure the customer is fully satisfied with performance of machine & technical services. That is the reason for our recent success,” he concludes.
