Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machinery Systems (MHI-MS), a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group company, has announced the launch of a brand-new MC flexo folder gluer, a new lineup broadening its portfolio of box making machines. 

The MC has been developed to deliver superior Japanese quality to a broader range of customers, it said. Succeeding the performance of EVOL, a flagship machine with nearly 600 sold worldwide, the MC achieves a shorter total length by integrating a newly designed printing unit.

Besides enabling box plants with limited space to install the machine, the new design allows operators to change printing dyes without using the stairs with which conventional printing units are equipped, the company said. 

“With its new features and sophisticated technology, gained through a legacy spanning more than 50 years, the ‘MC’ ensures high productivity and stable production at top speed, maximizing the chance of plant operators,” the company added. 

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 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.
