Valco Melton India, a subsidiary of US-based Valco Cincinnati Inc, is a supplier of adhesive application and quality assurance equipment across the packaging, paper converting, graphic arts and non-woven industries. The company is promoting and demonstrating its recently launched Eco Stitch all electric hot melt system at Intelpack 2019, which is taking place in Mumbai from 26-28 September.

“We have got very good response from customers when it comes to Eco Stich. We have been very successful in converting standard gluing systems to Eco Stitch system at multiple customers’ end. We have installed 25 systems since the launch and are in talks with many other potential customers,” says Ravi Kiran, director at Valco Melton India.

The Eco Stitch is ideal for applications requiring high line speeds, fast cycle rates, and long service life. Electric valves can be set to work on stitch mode to apply minimal adhesive beads with virtually no stringing to guarantee an extremely accurate application, even at the highest line speeds. It is primarily used at the end of the line packaging applications.

“At Intelpack we have showed the visitors those kinds of applications that can be performed by the Eco Stich. This system has very few moving parts and therefore its life is very long; almost 2 billion cycles. It saves adhesive by almost 70%. We have got good response,” Kiran adds.

The company is very optimistic about the success of Eco Stitch and hopes to install 25 more systems in the coming few months.

In addition to the Eco Stich, Valco Melton India is also displaying its ERO gluing system for folding carton application, a manual gun hot melt gluing system, controllers and various types of pumps.

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.
