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.

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 growing 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!
