At the recently concluded IndiaCorr Expo in Greater Noida from 23 – 25 October 2021, Valco Melton showcased its ClearVision Inspection Systems in India for the first time. The wholly-owned subsidiary known as Valco Melton India told us that the company was not impacted much during the Covid-19 pandemic. At the show, it was happy to reunite and meet its industry colleague, associates and customers in the first corrugated trade show in India after the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Ravi Kiran, business director, Valco Melton India, UAE & Singapore, the company which has its Indian headquarters in Bengaluru, had a smooth sailing during the Covid-19 crisis. It works across the country with numerous industries such as food and beverage, pharma, automotive and converters and was able to focus on alternate segments even if one industry was not doing well. He took the example of eCommerce to emphasize how certain segments have been positively impacted by the pandemic and have been performing exceptionally well. “Valco Melton was doing very well in terms of business even during the Covid peak or after the second wave of Covid-19,” he said.

Valco Melton ClearVision Quality Assurance Systems

The Valco Melton ClearVision Quality Assurance Systems have been designed for color detection, window or insert detection, carton ejection, skew, full sheet print inspection, gap detection, double feed-monitoring, and glue line inspection. The quality assurance system incorporates inspection devices and code readers to identify faulty boxes which ultimately eliminates problems encountered during the product assembly stage. The inspection device aims to assist end-users to manufacture a perfect end product.

The ClearVision Quality Assurance System comes with sophisticated pattern control packages with avant-grade management software to assist quality managers with remote control, off-site monitoring and tracking of the production process for later analysis. The high-end inspection system removes bad boxes and cartons from the production line and makes sure that a reliable, high-end product is delivered to the end-users in an accurate manner.

The ClearVision Inspection System can be integrated with Valco Melton gluing systems to develop a camera-based inspection machine for corrugated box and folding carton manufacture and packaging. It comes with a zero-defect product guarantee to specify the end product in accordance with client requirements. The quality assurance device provides a competitive advantage through zero defect boxes, rapid ROI and total quality management through negligible downtime.

Ravi Kiran explained, “The ClearVision inspection systems are designed to inspect the adhesive on the boxes so that it can capture unglued boxes and report to the operator so that the system can eject the bad box and it won’t go to the end-user. We have a sophisticated technology to inspect the glue, to inspect the fold, and to inspect the gap.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
