V-Shapes to debut with AlphaFlex at PackExpo

V-Shapes, the world’s most innovative supplier of convenient, hygienic, and sustainable single-dose packaging equipment, will make its debut at PackExpo by showing its latest innovation, the unique AlphaFlex print, form, fill and seal solution. This compact, professional-grade dosing and delivery system will feature high-quality synchronized printing on both sides of the sachets, powered by Memjet’s DuraFlex technology and ColorGate Packaging Production server when it becomes commercially available later this year. 

V-Shapes AlphaFlex will be shown for the first time

The AlphaFlex dosing and delivery technology makes it possible to vertically integrate high volume production of the patented V-Shapes single-dose sachets. Eliminating the need to outsource printing and giving complete manufacturing control back to the brand owners and co-packers. PackExpo, scheduled for 27 to 29 September in Las Vegas, marks AlphaFlex as being shown in North America for the first time. V-Shapes will be located in the Central Hall, booth C-4703, at the show. Memjet representatives will also be available at the V-Shapes booth.

“We are excited to be able to show our new AlphaFlex dosing and delivery solution to the many attendees expected at PackExpo Las Vegas 2021,” said Charanjit Hayre – President / CEO of the company, North America. “This revolutionary filling/converting machine was made possible through a variety of important partnerships, including Memjet, Siemens, and SIHL, as well as the talented company’s engineering team. It was no small challenge to develop synchronized feeds and professional quality printing of our patented single-dose sachets, and we think the visitors to PackExpo will be amazed when they see what our partners and we have accomplished!”

AlphaFlex features integrated inline printing into the V-Shapes six-lane Alpha machine, enabling packaging converters/fillers to accomplish the complete manufacturing process of V-Shapes’ unique single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint, full-color branding capabilities, in line, on-demand, and with the industry’s highest quality. In the AlphaFlex configuration, the printing module prints a single side of the single-dose sachets inline, synchronized with each other, and precisely married for diecutting, filling and sealing.

 

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.
