Bobst the packaging machinery majoris planning an Open House at its Pune factory from 26 to 28 February. “We are having a global launch of a brand new folder-gluerforthe litho
laminated and corrugated boxes at the Pune Open House – the Lila II 145. This machine has been designed by the R&D team of Bobst India and will be displayed at our Open House in Pune,” says Venugopal Menon, vice president, Bobst India.

Menon spoke to PS Aatthe KMPA Print Miracle Expo 2014 at Kochi about the upcoming event where Bobst will launch three major path-breaking technologies atthe Open House in
Pune. Having made a big breakthrough in the Kerala market selling a brand new automatic diecutter and a folder-gluer to Fivestar Offset at Kochi, Menon was gung-ho about the way
the market for convertors was shaping up. There are many packers using small semi-automatic machines of varied makes for packaging in Kerala which has been traditionally
strong in packaged fish, meat,ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook food, spices, beauty and ayurvedic products besides rubber items. “We have seen them maturing and expectthem to step intomoreproductive automatedlines for cartonmakinginthe next few years,” says Menon.

Apart from this there is a general buoyancy in the box making industry for packaging and Bobst is introducing several newsolutions attheOpenHouse to capitalize onthe demand.
Menon confirmed that an entry level diecutter with an in-line blanking platform that was recently world premiered at Brazil inJuly 2014 is being showcased at Pune .Another machine being shown in India forthe firsttime is a folder-gluer with an inline inspection system ‘Accucheck’ that will do 100% inspection of folding cartons with an in-line ejection system for defective cartons. This model was first launched in drupa 2012.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
