With over 70 years of experience in the packaging industry, Lenze India provides end-to-end automation and drive solutions to machine builders. Gopal Patil, sales manager of Lenze India, gave us some useful insights into the products and services that Lenze provides.

He says, “Lenze has been working for the consumer goods industry since the past five years. We provide the entire development process of the control system all the way to the drive shaft. We take a holistic view of the individual motion and control functions and draw consistent end-to-end drive and automation solutions for our clients. We have experts who are highly skilled in exploring the machine concepts and are capable of understanding even the finest of details.”

During the recently concluded four-day Automation India Expo in Mumbai, Lenze showcased i500—the new inverter series for food process and packaging. The unique aspect of the i500 WLAN module is wireless diagnostics and adjustment of inverter parameters through a smartphone app. This allows engineers to reduce the commissioning time and to make the process more simple and efficient. Also, the i500 parameters can be accessed from a PC through a USB or a field bus. In addition, there is a live monitor panel that offers selective display of speed, voltage, current and switch settings.

According to Patil, the drive does not contain a fan and uses a heat sink for heat dissipation; it is the most compact drive having 45 KW of power. This kind of drive best suited for the food packaging and textile industries, which together contribute over 45% to Lenze’s business. Overall, this provides a reliable and future-ready drive for a wide variety of applications in pumps and fans, conveyors, travelling winding former, tools and hoist drives. The Lenze i500 inverters reduce the time needed for mounting, cabling and programming. For more complex machinery such as in packaging and food processing plants, easy communication option ensures saving of precious time.

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.
