Renault installs a waste management system for a cleaner and greener workplace


Label specialist in Palghar, Renault Paper Products installed a waste management system supplied by the German company Matho Konstruktion & Maschinenbau. Mahendra Shah, who runs the company, said there was an “imperative need” to manage sticker label waste more efficiently.

“Nowadays, a clean workshop makes the workplace more productive, and saving space provides additional space for expansion,” Shah said.

The Matho Cuttobag CB-100 waste management system extracts trims and die by suction from the slitting machine or cutting station to transport the main equipment to shred self-adhesive waste without letting it stick to the sides and clog pipes and more Blow it over collection bags in a very small space or compact it for easy disposal.

“We didn’t just want to dump production in open or covered spaces. The waste label matrix removed after cutting has a sticky adhesive and is bulky. It attracts dust and bacteria, which poses a health hazard and also takes up expensive space that can be used for productive purposes,” Shah explained.

Renault, established in 1999 and operating a 22,000 square foot workshop with nine flexo and hybrid label presses, has steadily grown by adding label embellishment capabilities to become a specialist supplier to the liquor industry in addition to having a host of clients among major FMCG brand owners. Renault, Shah said, is perhaps the “first to have a combined label press” capable of producing labels with various technologies such as offset, flexo, screen printing in a single pass, as well as foil stamping and embossing capabilities.

The installation of the Matho system was managed by the company’s Indian representative, Weldon Celloplast, based in New Delhi. Kanwardeep Sahni, Managing Director of Weldon, said: “Renault has been a very loyal customer while demanding the best. Mahendra-bay is a simple person committed to creativity and innovation. Opting for Matho shows his penchant for creating the right environment in the workplace.
