Windmöller & Hölscher Group (W&H) will introduce several new innovations and present its comprehensive product portfolio for the production of flexible packaging from 19 to 26 October at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Details about the new technologies will be announced at the beginning of the show.

“It has become tradition for W&H to celebrate the premieres of machinery and technologies for extrusion and converting at K 2016,” says Jürgen Vutz, CEO of W&H. The company will continue to focus on the concept of Packaging 4.0. “We will show how intelligent machines, integrated processes and intuitive handling are already increasing efficiency and flexibility of the production,” explains Peter Steinbeck, managing director, W&H.

Coinciding with K 2016 , the family-owned company will open the doors to the 3,000 square metre  technology centre at its headquarters in Lengerich for a four-day in-house expo. Visitors will get to see several new innovations, among them the newest generation cast film line from W&H. In addition machine demonstrations for printing, converting and blown film as well as a plant tour will complete the programme. Subsidiary BSW Machinery, specializing in machinery for the production of woven PP sacks, will introduce its new flagship converting machine at K 2016 and present its full product portfolio at its own expo in the Czech Republic, also during K 2016.

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.
