Participating in IndiaCorr Expo for the first time, Taiwan-based Paktek is a leading supplier of Auto and Semi-Auto Folder Gluers to paste lock bottom and other exclusive designs of cartons. In last 35 years, Paktek has successfully installed their machines in Brazil, Europe, China and Poland. At Stand B-12, Paktek displayed KS 1600 M – multifunctional folder gluer designed to bind the paste flap of corrugated boxes. “There are only a few manufacturers who provide staples to close the corner flap. However, the consumption of staples is forbidden in some countries. Hence, we display our machinery that is fitted with hot and cold melt gluing systems,” says Amy Chan, managing director at Paktek. The KS 1600 M can take a board width of minimum 400 mm and maximum 1600 mm. The
enormous diversity of paper flutes over 300 gsm can run easily in KS1600 M.

“Regardless of RSC or irregular cartons, the device performance is outstanding, specially for large scale corrugated boxes having excellent durability and difficult to produce manually. The machine is most suitable for binding 5-ply corrugated cartons and since it comes with automatic tools, it becomes easy to handle the device by a single operator
at a speed of 500 to 800 sheets an hour. In addition, the machine can robotically position the pile height at the delivery and feeding units, thereby increasing the post-press jobs through efficient means,” claims Chan.

At drupa, Paktek bagged nine orders out of which a few are already installed and the rest under production. Going further, Paktek plans to participate in the upcoming Sino Corrugated event in China.

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.
