Based out of Greater Noida, Galaxy Packteck showcased its spout inserting machine at Plastindia 2018. First displayed in the year 2016, the machine has been the most successful product from the company so far. The GSF 12 high-speed auto spout inserting machine has a spout insertion capacity of 50 pouches per minute and can manufacture pouches of 100 x 150 x 120 mm to 240 x 350 x 120 mm (width, length and thickness) size.
In addition to the spout inserting machine, Galaxy showcased a 3-side pouch sealing machine. The machine runs at 400 pouches per minute and has the ability to manufacture pouches of 75 x 75 mm (min) and 300 x 300 mm (max) size.
“To sell a machine worth crores or lakhs to a new customer at an event is next to impossible. The entire process takes time. After initial discussions, every machine buyer looks for many other options. We have to wait for them to finalize our product. The process takes up to 6 months,” says Brijesh Kumar, senior manager – Accounts, Galaxy Packteck. “We did receive some fresh enquiries this time. Plastindia as an event is so huge that it provides you an unmatched platform. One comes to this event with the hope of cracking some new deals. But, as I said, it takes time. So, we have to wait for some time before we crack some new orders.”
Kumar, however, said that the company was optimistic about getting more than 20 orders during the show.
Japanese machines are technologically advanced and most renowned in the world, and Galaxy Packteck proudly claims to be the first Indian company to bring Japanese technology to customers in India.
Talking about the USP of the company, Kumar shares, “The machines provided by us do not require any maintenance and whatever money we make is purely out of sales of these machines and not out of maintenance.”
