Hilda showed its automatic 4-head piston filling machine and sleeve applicator at the PackPlus 2022 in New Delhi in early July. Designed for packaging products such as pharma, oil, cosmetics, chemicals, adhesives, and other viscous and semi-liquids in HDPE or PET bottles, the machine can fill volumes ranging from 100 milliliters to 1000 milliliters. The maximum production capacity and speed of the machine is 35 bottles per minute for 100-milliliter bottles and 25 bottles per minute for 1-liter bottles.

The automatic high-speed sleeve applicator can apply PET or PVC sleeves on the neck and body of HDPE, PP, PET bottles, or cups with sleeves of a thickness above 50 microns. The speed varies from 40 to 200 units per minute, depending on the cut length of the sleeve.

Talking about the visitor response at PackPlus 2022, Nandkishor Waghmare, the Sales and Marketing executive of Hilda Automation, said that as the exhibition started, visitors were looking at the technologies that to implement in their business to help them to ease their processes. “It is a three-day show, and one cannot expect all the days to be equally busy. But we hope for the best, and we want customers to come to our stand and look for the technologically driven machines that we provide for filling and sealing,” he said.

The company deals in rinsing, filling, sealing, cutting, capping, labeling, and wrapping. It provides a wide range of machinery for liquid and semi-liquid filling. The company has filling lines in customers such as Allure Pharmaceuticals, Nivea, Mahananda Dairy, Amul, Henkel, Astral, Pidilite, Fortune, and several other established brands.

Hilda Automation actively participates in each PackPlus. According to Waghmare, the exhibition has been an excellent platform for learning about global markets. The company’s primary markets are South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

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.
