Sweden-based EMBA Machinery recently participated in the ICCMA event where it displayed its unique inline solutions. EMBA, a leading manufacturer of flexo folder-gluers for the corrugated board industry ranging from Mini to Jumbo lines, rotary diecutters and inline printers, has more than 1,000 installations across the globe. EMBA machines are credited for high productivity and box quality due to the short set-up times and high running speeds with consistent and repeatable performance in the entire product range.

K. Chiranjeevi Sastry, regional sales manager – SAARC Nations at EMBA, said, “It is our fourth appearance at ICCMA. This year, we put on display the FFG 175 QS and 245 QS Ultima through illustration, apart from our other range of products. These two models are equipped with Liquid Creaser and Non-Crush Technology, both of which are patented technologies. The Liquid Creaser applies a liquid on the scoring line to soften the fluting and helps minimize resistance during folding, so that when closing the box it will fold around the creasing line. Non-Crush Technology aids in preserving the geometry and strength of the corrugated profile throughout the converting process by eliminating the nip points. Equipped with such high-end technologies, EMBA Liquid Creaser and Non-Crush
converting technology are the high-tech features that help reduce paper wastage during the process. Our unique inline solutions can help the industry to save around 15 to 20% of paper during the case-making operations.

Talking about the disposition of corrugators towards the automation, Sastry said, “So far we have around eight installations in India. Corrugators are yet to achieve the maturity state in parliamentary procedure to take over high-end automation solutions in the marketplace. Many corrugators are running family-owned businesses and it signposts the lack of right approach to the practical problems. Yet, with changes happening in the industry and more multinational companies stepping in, we can expect some positive changes in the situation.”

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 Asia is 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.
