The symphony of three corporate Rajoo-Kohli-Multigraph will foremostly demonstrate to the industry the thought-provoking leadership; product leadership is bound to follow, an industry first.
The flexible packaging industrys demands were clear; their needs of Extrusion Coating and Lamination Machines were growing and growing fast. They were looking beyond the available solutions at reasonable price points. The best-in-class extrusion and proven web solutions needed to integrate to provide a system that would meet Industrys needs of today and be versatile enough to be adapted for future requirements.
In an Extrusion Coating and Laminating machine (ECL in short) a water-based lacquer is coated on a primary substrate through the gravure process followed by a deposit of PE / PP based molten polymer from a T-Die and then combined with yet another substrate to form a composite laminate. This technology is rapidly replacing many a solvent-based and solvent less laminating applications.
Rajoo Engineers (well known for bringing in world-class extrusion technology at affordable prices and have developed Indias first three layer feed block and 1600 mm extrusion coating die with internal deckling to reduce edge bead) and Kohli Industries (leaders in rotogravure printing and laminating machines for the flexible packaging industry with a footprint in over 30 countries), comprehended this industry need, and in the best interest of the industry, joined hands to create a formidable alliance to build and maintain one of the most advanced and versatile Extrusion Coating and Lamination machines.
As good a product, it needs to reach out to the converters of the flexible packaging industry and there comes in Multigraph Machinery Co. Ltd. (promoted by owners of Manugraph- worlds renowned offset machine producer) to promote the sales of this first-of-its kind alliance product on a PAN India basis.
“We are excited at this alliance as each one of us would bring in key technology and skill sets for this business to succeed; working to our strengths is the need-of-the-hour. The symphony of three corporate Rajoo-Kohli-Multigraph will foremostly demonstrate to the industry the thought-provoking leadership; product leadership is bound to follow,” emphasise Utsav Doshi and Khushboo Chandrakant Doshi, Executive Directors of Rajoo Engineers Limited.
The Rajoo-Kohli co-branded LAMEX Series of Extrusion Coating and Lamination lines will be assembled at Rajoos facility at Rajkot complying with the highest standards of design and manufacturing that Rajoo is known for. The result being a wide range of solutions to suit varied applications.
