Paktek bags order at drupa 2016

Grafica Rex invests in KS-1600M folder-gluer

Paktek’s KS-1600M comes with options for electro-hydraulic lifting tables, pressing unit and counter delivery

Grafica Rex based in Nova Candelária, Brazil has been focussing on the development and production of folding carton and corrugated packages as its core business since 1979. Aiming to expand its presence in the local market share, the company opened their distribution centre in São Paulo in 2013.

At drupa 2016, Grafica Rex invested in a Paktek one-piece and multiple-piece folder-gluer, KS-1600M. The compact measurement of KS-1600M is capable of handling cartons with maximum width of 3,200 mm and fits into a small working space. Along with Paktek’s self-developed automatic 2-gun cold glue and 2-gun hot melt injection system, KS-1600M offers instant gluing and permanent adhesion and is free from re-opening issues under extreme temperature change during global transportation.

In addition to RSC cartons, KS-1600M can make irregular-shaped cartons made of duplex boards and 5-ply corrugated board in single-piece or two-piece jointing works. The KS-1600M comes with options for electro-hydraulic lifting tables, pressing unit and counter delivery. Bigger models like KS-2100M are also available to make big cartons up to 4,200 mm.

The installation will take place in coming days. Being one of the most modern packaging companies in Brazil, with more than 6,500 square-metre plant space and 220 employees, the technical staff of Grafica Rex keeps their commitment to high-quality products and high-satisfaction relationship with their clients.

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.
