The Smartfold 1100SL

In the market for the last 12 years, the Smartfold series of folder-gluer is DGM’s star product at the show. The Smarfold series has, however, been getting regular updates every year. The Smartfold is an automatic folder-gluer for the paper packaging industry and can produce whatever the paper packaging industry demands.

The folder-gluer has a feeder with rotary gauge, pneumatic feeder pile vibratory, automatic side registration, independent crash-lock and the pre-folding unit, and a special glue pot design for quick cleaning and wheel change. The company claims that it has a longer folder section and the longest delivery conveyor with a pressing length of 3,500mm. “Better capability and capacity are the key results of these features,” says Puneet Agarwal, managing director at DGM.

At the show, Agarwal will have his executive help the visitors understand the key features of the machine. “The pandemic has driven packaging because it fell under the essential category. This means that more players will be looking at packaging as an option. But entering the paper packaging segment is not as easy as it looks. Like other industries it also has hidden secrets and problems which only can be learned with experience. We will be demystifying the process of folding-gluing and helping the visitors understand the nuances of packaging.”

DGM has close to 100 installations in India with top names like MK Print Pack, Param Packaging, QOT Packaging, Noble Printing Press, Sangat Printers, Premier Paper Packaging, and Kumar Printers, among others as key clients.
