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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
