TOUCHLINE C375 PLUS can be extended with additional perforating tools allowing selective perforation in both directions. It can be combined with the folding unit TF375 to form a fully integrated creasing, perforating and folding machine.

Gayathri Machinery, the Chennai-based representative of German companies such as Hohner, Rilecart, Hang, Nagel, and Cstek, has partnered with Multigraf, a Swiss manufacturer of creasing, perforating and folding.

During their fifth participation at Printpack India 2019, the company will launch the Multigraf creasing, perforating and folding machines. The Swiss-built C375 Plus features positive and negative creasing, and continuous or ‘timed’ lengthways and crossways perforating, with up to four perforating heads for crossways operation. The crease depth adjustment can be automatically controlled via touchscreen. The machine is designed for easy and quick job changeover. It takes only 30 seconds to set up a new job and output the first sheet. Moreover, as it doesn’t require a separate air pump; the operation is quiet. The tiny footprint of 1,850 x 600 mm is an advantage, especially for Indian print firms.

“We have always had very good response at the show and are optimistic about the 2019 show too. Although there is a slight cash crunch in the market, the overall scenario is quite positive and we look forward to meeting a large number of serious visitors at our stand,” the company reports.

With expectations of closing the show with an order pipeline of at least 30 machines and confirmed orders of 5-8 machines, Gayathri Machinery hopes for a successful exhibition.

With the portfolio of machines that the company is offering, they look forward to meeting both digital and offset printers at the show. Exercise notebook manufacturers will find a complete solution for their wire-stitched books.

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.
