At the recently concluded Intelpack 2017 in Mumbai, Uflex’s holography and engineering business verticals  marked their presence and displayed some of their advanced solutions for the visitors. The engineering business showcased the automatic pick fill seal (PFS) machine for packing food items in solid, liquid and powder form.

According to Ajay Tandon, president and chief executive officer of Uflex’s engineering business, the PFS machine showed at Intelpack is an improvement on the previous model in terms of better aesthetics, lower rejection rate and reduced noise levels. Since the machine can pack liquids, Uflex will also target customers in the edible oil industry. The Uflex PFS machine is fully automatic, intermittent motion, 10-station rotary indexing filling and sealing machine. It can fill and seal center seal pouches, three-side seal pouches, stand-up pouches and zipper pouches, among others. The machine can be provided with various dozing systems. It features a mechanical robotic system offering close loop smart control, which ensures the pertinent operation: no pick—no fill—and no seal. This causes almost negligible wastage.

In the holography business, Uflex displayed its brand security solutions which help customers understand and appreciate what is genuine and what is counterfeit packaging of the product.

Sanjeev Sharma, deputy general manager – sales, holography business, Mumbai office said, “These solutions have innovative features which are easy to understand but almost impossible to be copied.” The solutions can be used by customers in the auto, FMCG, pharma, publishing and documentation authentication industries. In the packaging industry, players in flexible packaging, cartons and label industry can use these solutions alike.

Uflex’s holography business’ products range from holograms, holographic scratch, holographic wads, self-adhesive labels, printed labels to holographic paper labels, holographic strips, holographic pouches, holographic films, hsf foil, glitter film, sequins films, hot melt film, fancy yarn films and security documents among several others.

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.
