The new kit is capable of producing small jewellery boxes to large frame boxes of up to 400x600x120-mm, besides high-end mobile boxes.

TCPL is one of the most promising companies with a strong technical team and under the leadership of Saket Kanoria, managing director at TCPL, is expanding into different segments of packaging.

Before the TCPL acquisition, Creative had deployed a Chinese-make machine. “The newly acquired Creative Offset is into manufacturing mobile boxes for Samsung. We wanted to take it to the next level, and were keen on investment in equipment which can offer consistent quality, high production and versatility to do various formats,” said Akshay Kanoria, executive director at TCPL.

Before investing in the Zhongke kit, TCPL did a bit of market research to find out the best option and found that the Zhongke technology ticked all the boxes. “Its stability, efficiency and most importantly, service and support, tilted the scale in favour of Zhongke.” He added, “The Zhongke machine has automated operations, and requires just two persons to run it. The preset-enabled wastages are minimal.”

According to Rohit Rajpal, managing director at Zhongke India, the ZK 6421 machine is inspired by the box-on-demand concept and the intelligent machine is the world’s first fully automatic machine to auto-adjust upon feeding the parameters. 

“This makes the makeready really short.” Rajpal added, “What is really impressive about the machine is that it can produce various shapes, hence bringing a new and refreshing tone to the products.”
