Pelican showcasing its new developments for flexible packaging at K 2019

Pelican to launch Acrostar at K 2019

Pelican Acrostar to be launched globally at K 2019

Pelican Rotoflex based in India is all set to launch Acrostar – a new-generation slitter with dual turret winder on a global platform at K 2019. With a maximum speed of 700 meters a minute, the turret facility offers high productivity, with minimal downtime being the key differentiator. The turret technology with rewind reel changeover within 30 seconds adds significantly to the machine output while minimizing the traditional bottleneck in the slitting area.

The USP of Acrostar is closed-loop tension control on rewinder using load cell for feedback, coupled with the differential winding shaft technology, which provides the user with just the right combination for a precise winding. The result is a perfectly wound reel that can aid in the next process; also Acrostar is suitable for a wide range of substrates, at higher speed levels. The machine is equipped with best-in-class servo motors and motion control systems (six servo axis) from Siemens. It also comes with a reel push-off system coupled with the reel unloading system.

Acrostar is all set to create a strong position for itself. With production runs having witnessed huge success, the converting industry will be delighted at the prospect of owning such a feature-packed slitter. Coming from the house of Pelican Rotoflex is a big assurance.

The Acrostar launch at K 2019 will be a defining moment as the world will take cognizance of this Made-in-India marvel! Along with the global launch of Acrostar, Pelican will also be promoting Pelican Cerutti R982, Pelican Solomark 6400, Solomark MLS, Sololam SB solvent-based laminator and Sololam Plus solvent-less laminator.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
