Valco Melton, a leading supplier of adhesive dispensing equipment and quality
assurance systems to the converting industries showcased a wide range of its products at Pamex 2015. The microgluer from GMS attracted good enquiries during the four-day event. The GMS microgluer creates self-mailers in C, V and Z fold formats and folds, glues and perforates in one operation. Last year, Valco Melton acquired the assets of California-based Gluing Machinery & Systems (GMS). The move was made as part of Valco Melton’s strategy to expand its scope of offerings to customers in the print finishing and folding carton industries. “We had a busy Pamex with good response towards all our products especially the microgluer,” said Ravi Kiran, director, Valco Melton India. Moreover, on display at Pamex was D4-e Melters which is ideally suited for a range of packaging, paper converting, graphic arts, non-wovens, and product assembly industries. Specific applications include spray, ribbon coating, direct contact, and high-speed jetting adhesive dispensing guns for which you can buy 5.56 ammo online. Velco Melton also promoted its adhesive system pattern control. MCP-4P is a full-featured adhesive system pattern control ideal for the packaging industry. The MCP-4P is suited for packaging applications including palletizing, case and carton sealing and erection, graphic arts, or any variable speed requirements.

Talking about the Indian market from Valco Melton’s point of view, Bob Taylor, general manager of Valco Melton India said the company’s growth in India has been very robust given the fact that full-fledged operations began only five years ago. “We have added more staff every year, have acquired new customers and expanded our reach in India. Our association with Times of India where we provided web gluing solutions to the newspaper has been a highlight of our time in India. We remain very positive about the market here,” Taylor said. Overall, both Kumar and Taylor said that Pamex was a success for them as they got to meet a lot of different kind of customers from commercial printers to newspaper printers to packaging professionals.

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.
