Nodia-headquartered packaging giant Uflex participated in the recently concluded Pack Plus 2018 event held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Bad weather played its part in the trimmed footfall at the show. Like other participating companies, Uflex too wasn’t much impressed with the footfall the show generated. The company displayed a range of packaging and converting machines as well as solutions from the engineering, cylinder and holography businesses at its stand.

The engineering business of Uflex displayed an upgraded version of its pick, fill and seal (PFS) machine. The PFS machine for preformed pouches is an intermittent motion, fully automatic machine. It is used for packing powder, granules and pastes in preformed pouches such as center seal pouch, 3-side seal pouch, stand-up pouch and zipper pouch. Other machines displayed at the Uflex stand included collar-type form fill and seal machine and Eco Slit 450, a slitter rewinder from Uflex’s engineering division.

Anti-counterfeiting and custom features

PackPlus logoUflex also displayed a range of labels and holograms at the event, which now come with enhanced security features. The company came up with innovations such as fresnel lens and sterling lens including hybrid holograms produced combining two or more holographic designs. Additionally, there was a range of label solutions with enhanced anti-counterfeiting features for the pharma industry to avoid duplicacy. The solutions are a result of patented technology which Uflex developed in collaboration with a US-based company. The company is also planning to expand its labels business. Uflex also displayed laser-engraved embossing cylinders at the event with improved cell structures for reduced ink consumption. The company has been now increasingly focusing on offering customized solutions to its customers throughout the country.

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.
