Pune-based Saurabh Flexipack System provides machines for the flexible packaging of food products such as snacks, savories, biscuits, tea, flour, and ground spices. Its solutions are also used by segments such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and fertilizers.

At Propak India 2021, Saurabh Flexipack was in the Italian Pavilion since it is the exclusive distributor of Cavanna machines across the country. Cavanna is a leader in the flowpack wrapping and cartoning system field. It designs, produces, and distributes automatic machines and turnkey systems worldwide for single-pack and multipack wrapping of food, pharmaceutical, and non-food products.

Established in 1998, Saurabh’s Kawach and Smart-Ex vertical form, fill and seal machines are widely used. Beyond the, it manufactures VFFS machines, pick fill seal machines, conveyors, blenders, semi-automatic packaging machines and jar filling lines (single track and double track jar filling) machines.

Saurabh’s representative at Propack said that the company’s VFFS machine can make pouches for quantities ranging from 5 grams to 10 kilograms, with the possibility of customization according to the requirement. The company uses Beckhoff automation technology and components for its IPCs to produce a faster machine at 130 pouches a minute.

The company’s Contibag new high-speed, precision-engineered VFFS machine meets international requirements. Its advanced CPU motion control technology allows for the fastest possible pace at up to 130 pouches a minute. Weigh-fillers can also be attached to a Contibag machine for filling products with precise weight accuracy.

The Contibag uses an auger filler for free-flowing powders like turmeric powder, henna, besan flour, talcum powder, ground spices, herbal powder, soluble fertilizer powder and all kinds of fine powders. Linear or multi-head weigh fillers are available from the company for extruded snacks like Kurkure and potato chips, savories, dry fruit, pulses, grains, tea, sugar, seeds and many more. Cup fillers can also be fitted for filling grain, granules and powders like tea, spices, pan masala, gutkha, supari, and other products. Several pouch formats can be handled by Saurabh’s Contibag machine including center seal with Euro hole, center seal with gusset, center seal pillow pouches, TTO printer, and handle slot pouches.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
