Valco Melton, a leading supplier of adhesive dispensing equipment and quality assurance systems to the converting industries, showcased a wide range of its products at IndiaCorr Expo. The highlight at the company stall was GlueChek camera inspection system, which was launched last year. The system is useful for both carton as well as corrugation segments. The system analyzes the glue pattern to ensure that no gluing problems exist. When a gluing problem is found, the system notifies operators by alarm, then marks the defective box and saves an image of the gluing problem. By identifying and removing all defects before shipment, box makers can now provide perfectly glued boxes to their customers. In addition to GlueChek, the company promoted other solutions for the corrugated and folding carton segments as well.

Also being promoted at the event was gluing solutions from ERO Gluing Systems, which was acquired by Valco Melton earlier this year. ERO has been offering solutions to the converting industries since 1994. Located in Brescia, Italy, the company specializes in the production of electronic gluer systems for compact and corrugated cardboard boxes, paper bags, wood, sacks and other special gluing applications, as well as glue detection systems for folder-gluers and case makers.

Talking about the response received at IndiaCorr Expo, Rajesh Mishra, sales manager (India), Valco Melton said that there were quality visitors during all the three days. “Visitors showed great interest in the GlueChek system,” he stated.

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.
