Ahlbrandt System GmbH, a Baldwin Technology company, will reveal Corona innovations engineered for plastic film extrusion and converting applications at K 2019 in Dusseldorf, from 16-23 October, at Baldwin Technology’s stand C53 in Hall 4.

The new particle-free Ahlbrandt Corona electrodes prevent contamination from damaged or broken elements, an innovation that provides an advantage for clean rooms and those converting high-quality, food-grade plastic films. This design will be introduced in the Ahlbrandt Corona Pure, Pure XL, Flex, and Slim product lines.

Also on display at K 2019 will be the new Ahlbrandt Corona Extrude, which is a pretreatment system for blown film extrusion lines where it is essential to obtain a perfect surface tension before the finishing process. It features powerful metal electrode segments for long life operation.

Owing to the Ahlbrandt electrode designs, high pretreatment intensity is enabled on reactive film areas, which in turn leads to a continuously maintained treatment efficiency at optimal production speed without any impact from temperature variations during the production cycle. Additionally, the operator can easily access and flip the electrode segments, thereby cutting service and maintenance time.

“We designed the Ahlbrandt Corona innovations with the high demands of film extrusion in mind, to maximize the process uptime and simplify operation. It will also enable fast system delivery and installation. With the new electrode design and the Corona Extrude in our inventory, we can quickly deliver and commission,” said Holger Bätz, managing director, Ahlbrandt.

The slim and compact, yet durable, design makes the innovations future-proof and easily integrated into new and existing production lines. The robust parts enable a long service life with minimal maintenance, increasing uptime and delivering optimal return on investment.

In addition to the new Corona innovations, Baldwin Technology will showcase its FilmCylinderCleaner, Rotor Spray and Hot Air Drying solutions for the plastic film industry at K 2019.

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 Asia is 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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
