BOBST launches Speedpack

The ultimate packer

BOBST Speedpack corrugated box packer

Recently, BOBST announced the launch of Speedpack, an automatic packer for corrugated packaging that will allow users to realize the full potential of their folding-gluing lines. With highest possible number of batches per hour and very short set-up times, it increases productivity.

“Speedpack is a revolutionary corrugated-box packer that picks up boxes as they exit the folder-gluer and batches them up in a precise manner,” said Jacques Reymond, head of product marketing of business unit sheet-fed. “We have listened to what our clients say they most need to optimize their folding-gluing machines and SPEEDPACK delivers exactly that.”

Thanks to its exceptionally fluid operation, minimal footprint and optimal ergonomics and accessibility— which render set up times for repeat orders negligible What’s more, the machine is completely modular, making it a future-proof investment that can grow with one’s business.

“The machine will help to reduce costs and optimize quality and line efficiencies, enabling a rapid return on investment,” said Emilio Corti, head of sales of business unit sheet-fed.  “As the most productive packer in the market, we believe Speedpack will become the natural extension of one’s corrugated folder-gluer.”

BOBST presented Speedpack for the first time at the FEFCO technical seminar in October 2017, publicly demonstrating the value it can generate.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
