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.
