From prototype to manufacturing and assembly the company says it has completed the process and is now looking forward to the first installations. Four Instafold machines have already been sold and by next month (March) the company will initiate the installations.

In our interaction, the Robus team described some of the features of the Instafold 1100PC folder gluer which is equipped with an LED screen at the feeder so that a single operator can monitoring the folder and glued cartons at the delivery and conveyor. Additionally, converters can customize the machine to their requirements — by adding an advanced gluing tank with a unique scrapper device with micro-metric adjustment for precise gluing.

Straight glue line cartons up to 1100 mm can be produced and crash lock cartons up to 1000 mm in length. The machine can be operated at a maximum speed of 400 meters a minute.

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.
