At this year’s CCE International (15 -17 March 2022 in Munich), Baumer hhs will be focussing on its new gluing systems developed for the eCommerce segment (Stand 2440, Hall 4A). Solutions will be presented that virtually meet all market requirements for applying pressure-sensitive adhesive on eCommerce packaging.

Baumer hhs is one of the specialists when it comes to developing high-performance gluing solutions for eCommerce applications. All over the world, machine manufacturers and packaging producers in the eCommerce segment put their trust in the flexibility and reliability of our equipment. We cordially invite visitors to CCE International 2022 to talk with our experts. We’re excited to show you how you can optimize the efficiency, quality and sustainability of your gluing process in the production of eCommerce packaging using the latest equipment from our company”, says Thomas Walther, head of business development at Baumer hhs.

Baumer opts for paper-based lightweight packaging

Baumer hhs’s new solutions optimized to meet the varied requirements of the eCommerce market give packaging producers decisive advantages. For example, in the production of shipping boxes made of heavy-duty corrugated board, the tank on the new 100 kilograms Xmelt melter is designed to guarantee optimum, highly energy-efficient melting of the (pressure-sensitive) adhesives. The melter’s flow regulator feeds the adhesive very consistently, enabling exceptionally uniform gluing on heavy-duty corrugated boards within narrow tolerances and across all speed ranges.

The fluid mechanics of the nozzle on the proven application head from Baumer hhs have been re-engineered to support homogeneous glue application from start to finish. Particularly at high application weights up to 500-gram meter square, the head applies the adhesive even more uniformly. “The undulating surface of the heavy-grade corrugated board requires consistent and high-quality application of between 250 and 500-gram meter square of adhesive to even it out so that eCommerce packaging made of this material can be sealed easily and with little effort”, Walther explains.

With its new equipment, Baumer hhs also supports the trend in eCommerce of minimizing material use and transport volume by opting for paper-based lightweight packaging and mailers made of folding carton board or micro-flute. The overall goal is to improve the sustainability of the eCommerce business.

Because the surface of these materials is considerably smoother than that of corrugated board, applying 50 to 150-gram meter square of adhesive is more than sufficient to seal a box or package securely. For this application, Baumer hhs has developed the HP 500 SB, a new coating application head that guarantees top quality at application weights up to 150-gram meter square. “SB stands for ‘snuff back’ and means that the nozzle closes against the direction of adhesive flow, creating a negative pressure. This, in turn, has the effect of cutting off the glue flow rapidly and cleanly, preventing any residual tailing from the nozzle”, says Walther, explaining how this innovative technology promotes superior quality when applying pressure-sensitive adhesive in the production of paper-based lightweight packaging and mailers made of folding carton board or micro-flute.

Baumer hhs likewise offers an optimized Xmelt hot melt unit for these applications. It has a high-quality flow regulator that adjusts the quantity of adhesive within narrow tolerances when speed changes occur, establishing the basis for high quality gluing. This new gluing system from Baumer hhs is rounded out by a mount with precision settings for accurately adjusting the position of the nozzle relative to the packaging material. This, too, is a key factor for achieving maximum quality in the gluing step. “At CCE International, we will be addressing how important flexible mounts with precision settings are for the quality of an adhesive application. It’s an issue that has been underestimated all too frequently in the past.”

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.
