Valco Melton to display hot melt systems

IndiaCorr Expo 2017, Stand C17

Valco Melton

Valco Melton, a world-leading manufacturer of adhesive dispensing equipment and quality assurance systems for end-of-line packaging, will be displaying its high-speed gluing system for folding carton and corrugated applications. In addition to Valco and ERO gluing systems, there will be live demonstration of cold glue and hot melt dispensing systems at the show.

Valco Melton is a global leader in corrugated industry supply chain. The company recently started its manufacturing unit to produce basic hot melt systems. They are the first global company to start hot melt systems manufacturing in India and are targeting quality-conscious corrugated and folding carton manufactures in the country.

Blue chip companies are demanding high-quality boxes and they don’t accept a single unglued box in a shipment. Inspecting unglued boxes is a challenge and that’s where Valco’s inspection systems make a difference as they can detect unglued boxes, assuring 100% efficacy. Valco’s fold check, bundle check and ejectors will help customers to get the best output without a single bad box. The corrugated box market in India will register considerable growth owing to the estimated demand of container board likely to be 11 million tons by 2020.

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 grown 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!
