With a constant footfall during the 6 days of the show, Suresh Shah of Nulith Graphic looked happy. He termed PrintPack 2019 good for them. Given their range of solutions, Suresh thinks 6 days were a long duration but quick to add that it suited more to equipment exhibitors. “Many of our customers’ teams also visited in two parts so many visitors find it more convenient,” he says.
The highlight by Nulith at PrintPack was “WATER BASE DRIP OFF COATING”. They introduced Actega water-based drip-off coating for online usage with six- and more colour presses with coaters. It can create partial matte and gloss contrasts without a spot coating plate in a single pass on conventional oil-based inks and water-based drop-off in combination with primer.
“With Actega, we are targeting the packaging segment, the food safe side of it, at a price that is equivalent to regular coating. And though it’s a special coating, it can be integrated as a regular coating too,” informs Suresh.
Trelleborg Rollin blankets, which Nulith represents in India, has upgraded the barring system at Nulith’s Bhiwandi plant. “Blankets have now gravitated towards solvent less technology. Rollin remains a popular choice with manufacturers of web offset presses. Manugraph and a majority of the manufacturers have approved Rollin blankets,” says Suresh.
Nulith has been a regular PrintPack participant since 1997.
