The Spanish company, part of Coesia and in the flexible pouch packaging machine market, will take part in the Ipack-Ima 2022 with an offering aimed at the pharma industry. A major role will be played by Enflex, a Volpak brand focused on low-speed horizontal form fill seal machines which showcases Volpak’s specific expertise in the industry. The company will present an F11 model specifically designed for the pharma sector.

Enflex for pharma – a tradition of innovation and flexibility

Volpak1100 machines installed, 205 complete lines, and a portfolio of hundreds of worldwide customers who produce over 120 billion pouches every year. These are Enflex’s figures in the pharmaceutical industry, which is key for the Spanish brand and for which it has created a specific offer. Enflex machines are especially popular in the industry, as they combine high efficiency with key features such as durability and serviceability. Volpak’s machines are currently used by clients such as research laboratories, third-party suppliers, and small and medium businesses. The key markets are Europe and Asia, but the company is also interested in the American and African markets, where the pharma industry is showing high growth.

In the pharmaceutical industry, Enflex machines are typically used for the flat pouch (aka sachet) forming and packaging in the single or double version, for the packaging of products such as powder and granules for medical or veterinary use. The flat pouch is also an ideal choice for the packaging of products such as wipes and cotton swabs. The Spanish company’s machines can also be used by makeup and health care businesses thanks to the airtightness and sturdiness of the packaging produced by Enflex’s machines.


Low operating costs, high performance, and sustainability

All these features make the F11 machine especially suited for the healthcare sector for the packaging of a wide range of products, such as pharmaceutical and nutraceutical powders and pills, or medical devices such as swab sticks and hygiene wet wipes. Its small footprint and ease of use make the machine ideal for cleanroom productions of both brand owners and contract-manufacturing organizations.

A one-of-a-kind resource for the study of sustainable materials for flexible packaging

In addition to the specific solution that will be introduced at the trade fair, Volpak will alsoVolpak showcase its expertise in the flexible packaging of a wide range of consumer goods, which makes the company a world leader in the pouch market. The company’s technological leadership is such that four years ago it decided to build a ‘Pouch Lab’ – the first in-house research lab of any company focused on the study of the behavior of packaging materials. Over the years, Pouch Lab has led to important progress in the field of low environmental impact packaging materials, paving the way for the use of mono-materials and the ‘paper wrapping’ of products that were traditionally made of plastic. Today, Volpak isn’t just a trusted machine provider for its customers, it is also a partner of choice in the study and development of new applications in the field of flexible packaging materials.

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.
