RoboAccess_Pal S can deliver speeds of up to 12 cycles per minute and enables a case payload of up to 25kg allowing manufacturers to meet market demands with ease. The palletiser offers a compact design that enables two stations to be set up with a footprint of less than 12m2.

At ProPak Asia 2024, 12 – 15 June, the region’s leading trade event for food, drink and pharmaceutical processing and packaging technologies, Sidel will be showcasing its world leading aseptic solutions. Held at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC), the show brings together professionals from 45 countries.

The Asia Pacific (APAC) aseptic packaging market size is estimated at US $30billion and is expected to reach over $50 billion by 2029.

“For the food and beverage industry, sustainable packaging and longer shelf life are becoming increasingly important to consumers across the APAC region, driving the need for greater aseptic packaging,” comments Parkpoom Praprom, Sidel sales director, West & East Asia.

“Sidel supports this expanding market with over five decades of experience and will be showcasing the Aseptic Combi Predis at ProPak Asia.”

An integrated blow-fill-cap solution for PET bottles, the Aseptic Combi Predis incorporates Sidel’s patented Predi dry preform sterilization.  By eliminating conveying, empty-bottle handling, accumulation and storage, this solution ensures continuous production time and efficiency.

Super Combi: five-in-one process integration   

Sidel’s all-in-one Super Combi solution will also be exhibited at ProPak and integrates five process steps – preform feeding, blowing, labelling, filling and cap feeding – into a single system. The solution, ideal for water and carbonated soft drink production, uses equipment intelligence to continuously optimize production and enhance performance.  

Recently Sidel installed its Super Combi for Mai Dubai, one the leading bottled water companies in the United Arab Emirates. The facility is thought to be the fastest single line in the Asia, Middle East and Africa region filling at 86,000 bottles per hour in three different formats – 200 ml, 330 ml and 500 ml.  

Robotic and cobotic palletising

On-stand, Sidel will be demonstrating its advanced range of collaborative palletising solutions CoboAccess_Pal S and the RoboAccess_Pal S. The CoboAccess_Pal S is an industrial, advanced and modular cobotic palletising solution. The cobotic machine can reach payloads of up to 10kg whilst producing 6 cycles per minute which can maximize product efficiency.

RoboAccess_Pal S can deliver speeds of up to 12 cycles per minute and enables a case payload of up to 25kg allowing manufacturers to meet market demands with ease. The palletiser offers a compact design that enables two stations to be set up with a footprint of less than 12m2.

Discover wrapping innovations

EvoFilm Stretch, Sidel’s latest high-speed seamless shrink-wrapping range, will also be available to view on the stand AB06 at ProPak Asia.

“Compared to traditional options, our new stretch wrapping solution is a sustainable choice for customers who are looking for alternative secondary packaging. EvoFilm mainly targets multipacks and logistics packs, where printed film is not required, ensuring material reduction and cost-savings,” said Parkpoom from Sidel.

“With speeds up to eighty packs per minute, the new solution quickly stretches the film and applies the correct wrapping force to any packaging format, ideal for meeting the demands facing the beverages and FHPC industries.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
