‘Matho’ — Waste management system at Renault Paper

Recognizing the need to manage self-adhesive label waste more effectively

Waste management system from 'Matho' Germany installed at Renault.

Recognizing the imperative need to manage self-adhesive label waste more effectively, Palghar based Renault Paper Products, led by Mahendra Shah, has installed a waste management system supplied by Matho Konstruktion and Maschinenbau GmbH, Germany. Renault, established in 1999 and operating out of 22000 square feet shopfloor with nine label presses, have steadily expanded by adding label embellishing capabilities to become a specialized supplier to the liquor industry besides having a host of customers from the leading FMCG brand owners. They have a range of high-end flexo and hybrid presses. They are the first to have a combination label press that can produce labels with diverse technologies like offset, flexo, screen printing in a single pass along with capabilities to foil and emboss. On installation of Matho, Mahendra comments, “In today’s time, a clean shop floor makes the workplace more productive, and space-saving does provide additional area for expansion”.

Leading label producing companies understand and try to implement a cleaner and green workplace. Environmentally and socially responsible manufacturers of self-adhesive label material or converters of labels do not wish to dump their production waste as garbage in open or covered spaces. Label waste matrix stripped off after die-cutting has tacky adhesive and is voluminous. It attracts dust and bacteria, so it is a health hazard and also occupies expensive space that can be used for productive purposes. German manufacturers Matho offers waste management systems to extract the trims and matrix by suction from the slitting machine or die-cutting station to transport the leading equipment to shred the self-adhesive waste without letting it stick to the sides and clogging the pipes and further blow it on to either collection bags in highly reduced space or compact it for easy disposal.Matho

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
