True to this year’s motto ‘Transition in packaging,’ Syntegon will present process and packaging solutions centered around the future topics of sustainability and automation at Fachpack from 27 – 29 September. An integrated system solution for packaging pistachios will be the highlight at stand 1-204. An Elematic 2001 wraparound case packer will be also on display, which complements Syntegon’s versatile system competence. “We want to support food companies in making their production fit for the future. The integration of flexible, automated systems and sustainable technologies contributes significantly to this goal. This allows manufacturers to react even faster to future trends,” explains Torsten Sauer, project manager of Sustainability at Syntegon.

Automated solutions through system competence

Syntegon has been engineering robotic solutions for decades. And the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated the mega trend toward automation. The focus at Fachpack will therefore be on the European premiere of the RPP robotic pick-and-place platform – the modular platform complements packaging lines by taking over product handling and/or feeding. The robotic solution will be on display at the stand as part of a turnkey system in combination with the SVE 2520 DZ vertical bagger and the Kliklok ACE carton erector.

On site, the SVE 2520 DZ vertical form, fill and seal machine weighs MagNuss brand pistachios (part of EUROFOOD Handelsgesellschaft mbH) before packing them into Doy bags. The highly flexible machine also processes all other common bag formats. The RPP pick-and-place platform picks up the doy bags which are transported flat, positions them correctly, and places them five at a time upright in cardboard trays that have been performed on the Kliklok Ace. The Ace covers both glue closure and glueless lock-style closures, providing sustainable options for different carton formats. The individual components of the exhibited line can be configured flexibly, giving manufacturers many options to respond to changing market trends with a wide range of packaging styles, formats, and materials.

Seamless integration into existing systems

Syntegon also demonstrates its system competence with the Elematic 2001 wraparound case packer on display, which is now also available with a Beckhoff control system in Europe. As the solution can be seamlessly integrated into vertical and horizontal systems, manufacturers can add a Syntegon case packer to their packaging lines, thus increasing the level of automation in their production. Fast, tool-free format changes and more than 100 case designs allow manufacturers to respond quickly to changing market needs with the Elematic case packer. Additionally, all Elematic machines can reliably produce sustainable cases from recycled cardboard or grass fiber corrugated boards.

The future is sustainable

By the end of 2022, all Syntegon machines for food packaging will be able to process sustainable materials. “We’re already thinking about tomorrow – our Kliklok Ace carton erector, for example, creates paper trays for cookies, offering an attractive alternative to conventional plastic trays. And also the exhibited SVE processes not only plastic, but paper-based materials into pillow bags for frozen foods, as well as stand-up bags or doy bags for dry foods,” Sauer explains.

In 2021, Syntegon presented new concepts for structured paper pods and blisters formed on the TPU form, fill and seal machine. Just a year on, the company announced cooperation with contract packer Truvant, who applies the solution for various customers. Visitors to Fachpack can experience the paper solutions at the company stand. Syntegon will also exhibit new sustainable coffee packaging made of mono-material that can be processed into recyclable bags on the new PMX packaging machine.

Closer collaboration with customers thanks to Service Agreements and Digital Solutions

Innovations in the area of Services and Digital Solutions are another focus of the trade show stand. Syntegon now offers revised Service Agreements on different levels including services such as maintenance, spare parts management, remote service, and training. The flexible approach enables support at a fixed price that is specific to individual needs. Part of the Service Agreements is Synexio, a cloud-based software solution for the acquisition and evaluation of machine and production data. With the generated real-time data, companies are able to streamline their maintenance processes and enhance their overall production efficiency.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
