Enhancing design, prototyping and profile cuttingWadpack installs Esko’s Kongsberg XN24 samplemaker and ArtiosCAD softwareBengaluru-based Wadpack with its 60,000 metric tonnes capacity for corrugated boxes and pallets is one of the leading companies in the corrugation industry in India. Already well known for its customized boxes and specialized application of corrugated materials, the company recently installed Esko’s ArtiosCAD software for structural design of cartons and components and a Kongsberg XN24 sample making table.L-R: Komal Wadhwa, director, Wadpack, and Chandan Mahendra, sales account manager, EskoWadpack plans to use Esko’s ArtiosCAD software and Kongsberg cutting and creasing table
for prototyping innovative designs and creating short-run sample boxes. The Kongsberg XN24
samplemaker with its powerhead and MultiCut HP head attachments is built for cutting and
creasing high strength materials. The robust cutting table can be used continuously and this makes
it especially suitable for short-run production.

Apart from the creation of prototypes and samples, Wadpack is planning to design and manufacture
special profile cuts for POP and display markets. Wadpack will use a combination of materials and
substrates including corrugated and honeycomb board, and acrylics. Komal Wadhwa, director of
Wadpack, says, “New product development in secondary packaging is done by Wadco’s in-house
design team. The team will use Esko’s software to develop these products and finish them on
the Kongsberg XN24 sample making table. We will also use the Esko solutions to develop
customized boxes and produce special corrugated or foam profile packing components. These
components will provide anti-shock insulation for the shipment of high value goods.”

Wadpack is a pioneer of high quality corrugation using a wide variety of recycled liners for producing
high strength corrugated containers and pallets. The nearly 40-year-old company with
plants in Doddaballapur near Bengaluru has a complete in-house production workflow from design
and prototyping to corrugation to flexographic printing, diecutting, slotting and both glued and
stitched box-making operations. Wadco’s ability to manufacture corrugated boxes and pallets for
exports and its new Kongsberg table enables the company to provide unique packaging fitments and
makes the company a comprehensive one-stop shop for several packaging related requirements.

Shrihari Rao, sales director of Esko India, says, “At Esko we have always believed that innovative packaging can lead to enormous savings and efficiencies for Indian manufacturers of high technology products and components. The use of Esko’s software in combination with the robust Kongsberg XN24 cutting table with its special heads allows Wadpack to create some very unique packaging solutions for its customers who need to ship complex high value components or products without fear of damage and cost overruns.”
