New counting line for the American marketMarchesini to display Compact 24 Synchro at Pack Expo 2015Marchesini Group will be participating in Pack Expo 2015 from 28 to 30 September in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many professionals from the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical devices and nutraceutical manufacturing industries are expected to attend this year’s show. The Marchesini Group will be presenting a new counting line for the American market. Compact 24 Synchro is a monoblock, which is able to run high production speeds combined with top counting precision. This monoblock will be showcased at the trade show with the Sirio 3 bottle unscrambler or bottom code reader. The Sirio 3 is capable of handling round, square, oval or rectangular containers.Compact 24 Synchro is a monoblock, which is able to run high production speeds combined with top counting precisionCompact 24 Synchro is one of the latest packaging innovations by Marchesini Group for the solid dosage packaging market. This monoblock is designed to manage high production rates (up to 150 vials a minute), at the same time ensuring the highest possible counting precision. The combination of counting accuracy at high speeds is due to the combined use of two technological innovations by the company’s R&D department.

The first is a so-called Twin Flap technology that increases the speed of the 12 channels of each counting unit by drastically reducing the dwell time of the bottle under the funnel, without increasing the number of contact parts. The second innovation is the Synchro-dynamic conveyance system that transfers the counted product into the vial in continuous motion as the vial itself is fed along the line.

The Synchro-dynamic process along with the Twin Flap technology, which splits the 12 channels of each counting unit into two, thus creating a double counter for each unit, ensure the most reliable and accurate counting technology available. The final result is the most innovative monoblock solid dosage counting line on the market today, which guarantees complete efficiency of the production process – from the upstream phase of counting to the insertion of the cotton, right through to capping.

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 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.
