Robus India launched its new Instafold folder-gluer, with Braille-embossing capability at the 15th Printpack India. This new machine can convert 70,000 boxes per hour. “At this event, we will inform clients about our new projects, the Direction series, and our Braille-embossing capabilities,” Deepesh Vishwakarma, assistant general manager at Robus, told IPP.

“We are here showcasing our made-in-India folder-gluer Direction series, which is specifically built to fulfill the demands of Indian consumers. It is manufactured locally. Through live presentations, the company is also addressing its new initiative for delivering operational excellence and quality standards to its clients,” he added.

“The machine is ready to give its services to all industries ranging from pharma to the corrugated carton industry. The device has a maximum speed of 400 meters per second to make boxes. The machine has a special attachment, which the company calls ‘Sudarshan Chakra’ for tray cartons of 40 millimeter height. The carton can be folded to 165 degrees. With this machine, customers can produce up to 70,000 boxes per hour.”

“We are hoping to get a great number of enquiries at this event, as this is the biggest in-person event after Covid-19,” Vishwakarma said. “At the exhibition, we anticipate creating many leads for this equipment. We already have pre-orders from at least four customers.”

Ultimately, Robus India closed 11 deals at the 15th PrintPack India exhibition in end-May. The company sold a number of die cutters, folder gluers, automatic 5-ply flute laminators, and automatic film lamination machines. The customers came from mainly Delhi, Palwal, Dera Bassi, Haridwar, Noida, Bahadurgarh, Ghaziabad, and Pune.

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.
