Valco Melton showcased multiple solutions, including its all electric EcoStitch system and piston pump hot melt system with auto feeder, at the Pack Mach Asia Expo held in Mumbai from 7-9 December.

EcoStitch series melters are adhesive melters and include ethernet IP integration, digital pressure control, adhesive usage data available on screen, and full OEM integration with all digital-based data. “The EcoStitch technology saves a lot of adhesive for the customers, almost up to 70%,” said Ravi Kiran of Valco Melton India.

A subsidiary of the US-based Valco Cincinnati Inc, Valco Melton India is a supplier of adhesive application and quality assurance equipment across the packaging, paper converting, graphic arts and non-woven industries.

Talking about the piston pump hot melt system with auto feeder, Kiran said this solution makes a lot of sense for the pharma industry. With this system, the hot melt can be fed directly into a 20-liter bin so that the adhesive will be automatically picked up when required. 

“With this solution, a customer does not need to continuously feed the hot melt or over-melt the adhesive,” Kiran said. 

Kiran said Pack Mach Asia Expo was a very interesting expo and the footfall had been very good.

“This was an important packaging machinery show. We supply our solutions to a lot of OEMs who integrate them in their products and supply these to end customers. At the Pack Mach Asia Expo, many OEMs with we deal were present. We interacted with them and showed them our products on display. We got a lot of inquiries from potential customers,” Kiran said.

PackMach Asia Expo is an international trade event for processing and packaging jointly organized by The Institute of Packaging Machinery Manufacturers of India (IPMMI) and Messe Muenchen India, and supported by the PHD Chamber of Commerce (PHDCCI) as industry partner.

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.
