Windsor’s Baron 2500infinity

India’s first 5-layer Polyolefin Line

Windsor Machines has launched India’s first dedicated 5-layer Polyolefin Line Baron 2500, which can meet the most demanding specifications of films even after down-gauging

Windsor Machines has launched India’s first dedicated 5-layer Polyolefin Line Baron 2500. With Baron 2500 infinity, you can meet the most demanding specifications of films even after down-gauging. POD is basically a non-barrier film with a thick core layer and thin skin layer along with medium intermediate layers. There is an increased possibility to optimize the functional property of each layer and also have a higher output by using high melt strength polymers. With 5-layers, not only does the output film get empowered to pass the most stringent regulatory standards (that too with a higher throughput), but also empowers the business owner with a significantly higher ROI – it is a matter of getting more with less, be it machine time or for that matter resin consumption.

Windsor has merged the concept of ‘maximizer’ with the POD line. With the die and the single cooling ring appropriately designed, the user can enjoy better film properties, higher puncture resistance, an increased film output, a BUR of 1:5 and more. The Baron 2500 infinity POD can deliver an output of up to 550 kilograms an hour with the 250 mm die.

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!
