Mumbai-based Wraptech launched its new tube filling machine at Intelpack 2017, which was held in Mumbai at Bombay Exhibition Center from 26-28 September. Along with the new tube filling machine, the company also had on display the new version of MB250EV bagging machine.

The new tube filling machine, WMTF 80, can fill aluminum, laminated and plastic tubes at a maximum speed of 80 tubes per minute. It can fill tubes with volumes of 1 gram to 250 grams.

“We have run the machine at 75 tubes per minute and the machine has worked absolutely perfectly with all the three types of tube,” said Amit Bhave, sales manager – international sales, Wraptech.

An interesting feature of the WMTF 80 is that of a magazine feeder which can hold 1500 tubes, reducing the need for operators.

Bhave informed that the target market for the new machine will be mostly Tier-I -II customers only. The tube filler is primarily aimed at the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.

The second machine on show, MB250EV bagging machine, is useful for packaging powders (free and non-free flowing), granules, pulses, beans, detergents, desserts, tea, coffee, sugar, rice, etc. A full servo machine, it runs at speeds of 80-85 packs per minute.

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.
