In the absence of quality manufacturers of extrusion coating / lamination machines in India, responding to an ever-increasing demand from the convertors’ sector, Uflex launched Extrusion Lamination Machine EL-1300 in India last July.
The machine received great feedback from Indian convertors and turned out to be a huge success. Innovation to create value added differentiation being the guiding vector at Uflex, the quest for re-engineering to come up with something more evolved and endearing for convertors to address their needs towards various types of applications continued.
Mr Ajay Tandon, president and CEO, engineering business, Uflex Limited said: "This re-engineering and value addition gave birth to extrusion coating / laminators as Mono Extruder, co-extruder and Tandem Extruder variants.
"To meet the principal application of extrusion coating / lamination, Mono Extruder is good enough. However, considering the running costs and flexibility to play with various polymers, co-extruders are getting increasingly popular. In addition to economising the costs, co-extruders also play an important role towards enhancing barrier properties owing to multi-layered combination. Tandem extruder has been designed so as to execute multi-layered jobs in single run for saving upon the process time."
"The fact that in addition to the delivered machine four more machines are being currently manufactured at our plant in Noida proves the credibility that Uflex as a manufacturer of converting and packaging machinery enjoys.
We have a powerful feedback loop that helps us tapping the pulse of the market at all times. It is for this important feedback which we received from the Convertors’ fraternity that we were able to give unparalleled features to the extrusion coating / laminators including auto adjustment of the silicone belt, movement of extruder / T-Die in three axis… x-y-z, possibility of top and bottom splicing to name just a few.
The moment of truth dawned upon us when our Extrusion Lamination Machine EL-1300 was highly appreciated not only by domestic convertors and professionals from the industry but also by one of the leading manufacturers of extrusion coating machine from the West."
Expressing delight upon this development, Mr Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex Limited said: "Only successful engineering is potent enough to quell the thirst for innovation. I am glad that my team has been able to add discernible value to the existing extrusion lamination machine by further engineering mono extruder, co-extruder and tandem extruder variants for meeting multifarious needs of convertors. Let me tell you that more value engineering on this front is in the offing and you shall hear from us about it in the near future."
