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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
