Kunal Enterprise is a screen printing solution provider to the printing industry under its flagship brand Sakurai. The company provides automatic stop cylinder screen printing machines to the Indian market, along with solutions for the glass, printed electronics, and packaging industries, textiles, ceramics, the security industry, and more.
At the 50th edition of the MediaExpo held from 2 – 4 March in Mumbai, the company showcased printed electronics and light-emitting packaging. It also exhibited inks used in printed electronics for printing circuits with the help of screen printing machines.
“Our experience at the 50th MediaExpo was pretty good. Messe Frankfurt is trying to bring everyone together in the screen printing industry and marketing it well. Many important customers visited us: there are many important aspects that we will follow up on later. As our products are considered to be premium, these are promising leads,” said Kunal Gandhi, executive to president at Kunal Enterprise. He stressed the need for an association where screen printers can come together to discuss issues pertinent to the industry.
Screen printing is touching many industries but the unfortunate part is that each industry is very closed. Security printing, decal printing, and textile transfer are all closed industries, he added. “We cater to almost 25 industries all over India and each industry has a different platform for exhibiting. We are exhibiting printed electronics, which is one of the upcoming trends. Electronics is present in our everyday lives but the question is how to miniaturize it. Day by day, cell phones are getting thinner, electronics is getting smarter and hassle-free. Somewhere down the line, the wire has to be replaced by printed circuits.”
“Light-emitting packaging solutions is a new USP for us – we have been developing it for the past one or two years. We will replace all wires in light-emitting packaging, which used to be very bulky or generated too much heat. This can be replaced by miniaturization or through a sleek design when it comes to printed electronics.”
Kunal Enterprise will also exhibit a foiling line at the upcoming Pamex exhibition for the printing and packaging industry. “We can provide high production at pinpoint accuracy – plus minus 0.05 mm, which hardly any block-making company or hot-stamping machine company can provide,” he concluded.
