Robus India is among the leading carton packaging equipment manufacturers, specializing in folder gluers, die-cutters and lamination machines for the folding carton and corrugated industries. After a lengthy hiatus, Robus India is enthusiastic about the resumption of the PrintPack India show.

It is exhibiting its new locally manufactured Instafold folder-gluer with Braille embossing capability. The company will also discuss its new project for delivering Operational Excellence and Quality Standards, to its clients through live presentations by Subhasis Roy at its stand G15 in hall 9C. Roy has recently associated himself with Robus as a strategic director for developing both manufacturing and servicing and also for the company’s customers who want to be certified for quality and efficiency. 


“Over the last two years, we have found that customers are always looking to improve their quality and efficiency. Everyone wants to grow in their business. So in this context, we have started our OEE and quality standard projects, which we will present at Printpack 2022, and expect more customers to understand the need and benefits of this concept,” said Prem Vishwakarma, co-founder of Robus.

“At this event, we are showing our make in India folder gluer Direction series specially designed for Indian customers to meet their specific needs. With the help of this platform, we will make the customers aware of our new projects, our Direction series and our Braille embossing capabilities. We expect to generate a good number of leads for these at the show,” concludes Vishwakarma.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
