With the new Mink MV series, Busch has succeeded in developing claw vacuum pumps that have a significantly lower noise level than comparable pumps in the market. They are also extremely compact and efficient. The new series operates in the same way as its predecessors, that is, according to the dry and contact-free claw principle. Therefore, no operating fluid is required in the compression chamber, which means that all associated maintenance work, such as oil and filter changes, is eliminated. Thanks to the contact-free operation, there is no wear and thereby no need for replacing wearing parts.

Mink claw vacuum pumps are used to generate the vacuum required for feeding material into extruders and injection moulding machines pneumatically. Their high level of energy efficiency and wear-free operation make Mink claw vacuum pumps the most cost-effective solution for the pneumatic suction conveying of granulates.

In principle, Mink claw vacuum pumps are also suitable for use in centralized vacuum systems, which generate vacuum for feeding material into all injection moulding machines or extruders. An additional vacuum supply offers high energy-saving potential.

Mink claw vacuum pumps have been used for degassing extruders for over two decades now. Busch’s years of experience in degassing plastic melt during extrusion, expertise in separation technology and regular dialogue with customers enables it to offer tailor-made solutions for customers in the plastics and rubber industry in addition to standard degassing systems.

Apart from Mink claw vacuum pumps, Dolphin liquid ring vacuum pumps can also be used in degassing systems depending on the material to be extruded. Subject to the vacuum level required, Panda or Puma vacuum booster can be connected downstream as well.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
