Sahil Graphics has come up with numerous machines for making paper bags in Hall 3 Stand B28-30 at PrintPack India 2022, at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida. The latest design development of square bottom paper bag machines is relatively new in the market. Last year, the firm started manufacturing machines and is now showcasing them at the event.

Sahil Graphics has a complete solution for making paper bags in-house, from printing and pasting to handle fixing. There are several Chinese machines for making paper bags in the market, but Sahil Graphics manufactures make-in-India machines, giving massive competition to the Chinese manufacturers. In terms of financials, the cost of both the Chinese and Indian machines is equivalent. Moreover, our machines are good in service and response time, and Indian customers are now purchasing the indigenously crafted machines,” says Sahil, vertical head of Marketing at Sahil Graphics.

A shift in the technology paradigm

There is a technological shift in the market from conventional mechanics to modern and advanced technology. Sahil told IPP that people made paper bags manually ten years back, but the retail industry adapted and moved towards technology with the passage of time. Today, the machines are automated, which enhances the production of paper bags by leaps and bounds. Now, one can make up to 1,50,000 paper bags a day from a single machine. The erstwhile production of paper bags was too low, around 10,000 to 20,000 paper bags a day depending on the number of hands. With technological advances and automation, the cost of paper bags has gone down immensely and set a stage for the market. 

Sahil Graphics manufactures and supplies offset printing machines, flexo roll to roll printing, non-woven bags, paper bags, paper cup forming, and paper straw making machines used for making D cut bags, W cut bags, grocery paper bags, shopping paper bags, paper straws, paper cups, printing non woven bags, newspapers, calendars, posters, magazines, and journals.

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.
