With supermarkets increasingly requesting reclosable packages for grated cheese, dairy producers are seeing the need to incorporate machines that let them produce this type of packaging with the highest production and efficiency levels.

In response to this, the packaging equipment and service provider Ulma Packaging (a part of Ulma Group) has developed a new solution named VTC 800-R continuous vertical wrapper. The new VTC 800-R model, according to the company, allows producing zipper packages at a higher speed than previous models.

New model increases productivity

The company claims that the new VTC 800-R continuous vertical wrapper is capable of increasing productivity to up to 60 packages per min without losing efficiency and providing easy machine operation. Whereas, in previous models, the production rate was limited to around 35 packages per min with the resealable zipper application.

The VTC 800-R continuous vertical wrappers with a rotating jaw facilitate operation with the zipper as it is applied lengthways, thus making it possible to increase production.

The new model also stands out from the rest of the VTC 800 range, as the company highlights, due to its design concept, focused on ensuring the highest hygiene levels in all processes. With a special washdown design, they offer protection level IP66 with surfaces that facilitate water evacuation. According to Ulma, the results are turning out to be very positive, as confirmed by the numerous requests we are receiving for new units.

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.
