Packaging is no longer confined merely to the container but has become a sum total of style, quality, health and other technical and scientific developments. Established in 2001, Galaxy Packteck has grown to become one of the top players in the pouch-making machinery market. Galaxy manufactures, exports and supplies automatic, high-speed pouch-making machines to leading customers in India and overseas.
The company has a wide portfolio of products for the pouch converters and manufacturers, such as 3-side sealing machine, stand-up zipper, center-sealing zipper and woven fabric machines. Galaxy’s spout inserting machine, which the company claims is the first-of-its-kind manufactured in India, was displayed at the previous edition of PLASTINDIA, where it received an overwhelming response. All of Galaxy’s shape cutting and pouch making machines are servo driven.
Going by the buzz it has created in the Indian and overseas market over the past two years, Galaxy decided to again show the same machine at this year’s PLASTINDIA. This time, the company is looking to target overseas clients to cement its place in exports.
Galaxy’s GSF 12 high-speed auto spout inserting machine has a spout insertion capacity of 50 pouches a minute. The machine can manufacture pouch sizes ranging from 100 x 150 x 120 mm to 240 x 350 x 120 mm (width, length and thickness). Galaxy also manufactures customized machines for special formats and needs. The company will also show a 3-side pouch sealing machine capable of running at 400 pouches a minute.
“Our main motive is to cut the imports this time around. Usually, Indian machines are criticized for heavy power consumption and lower output rates, and we would like to contradict that perception with our machines. I think it’s high time that people realize that Indian machines are quite at par with those being offered mostly by our European counterparts,” says Brijesh Kumar, senior manager – Accounts of Galaxy Packteck. “PLASTINDIA as a bi-annual event has been pivotal for us. Ten years ago, we lacked exposure. In 2009, we decided to participate in PLASTINDIA for the first time and the show turned out to be so fruitful that we couldn’t resist going back to all the successive editions of the event.”
