Paktek’s one-piece and multiple-piece folder gluer KS-1600M, being displayed at IndiaCorr Expo 2016, is built with compact machine design and self-developed auto 2-gun cold glue and 2-gun hot melt injection system. The gluer is considered helpful for short-run production for big cartons up to 3.2 metre for 1-piece or 1.6 + 1.6 metre for 2-piece in one carton. This combined gluing system is expected to secure significant bonding even under extreme temperature change during global transportation. Moreover, KS-1600M is designed
with an efficient regulation unit.

For KS-1600M, the maximum opening width of a one-piece blank can be up to 3,200 mm. Bigger models are also available. The applicable materials are duplex boards E, C, B, A and AB corrugated boards in designs of irregular and RSC cartons. It takes about 5 to 15 minutes only for changeover time and yields an average production speed of about 500 to 800 sheets an hour.

In addition to KS-1600M, Paktek has been professionally manufacturing auto-folder-gluers for various materials in solid boards, corrugated boards and plastic with strong bonding and no scratches; auto flute laminators and cardboard to cardboard laminators; and sheeters for cutting plastic film. The PLC positioning system for folder-gluers and an auto pile turner for laminators are additional features that will help in increasing productivity and reducing labour.

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.
