Record production achieved on a W&H Convertex at Kushal Plasto

Kushal’s Medchal plant achieves the highest production of block bottom bags

Kushal Plasto

On the day when the whole world was setting New Year milestones, W&H’s partner Kushal Plasto had geared high and head started with a record production – welcoming the year with a success badge. The engineers at Kushal’s Medchal plant achieved the highest-ever production of block bottom bags in a day. The team produced close to 150,000 AD ProTex bags from a single CONVERTEX machine.

The management believes this success is owed to their expert team, efficient utilization of resources, adherence to processes and use of high-quality fabric. At present, Kushal has one-of-a-kind Greenfield project for production of AD ProTex bags in South India. Their new plant was inaugurated in August last year under the leadership of KC Jain.

Realizing the growing market for PP woven block bottom bags in India, Jain had laid foundations of the plant in the Telangana region. He was recently commemorated with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the Indian Cement Industry, completing 50 meritorious years of leadership and service.

W&H believes that this achievement is owed to Kushal’s expert team, who quickly streamlined their efforts to defined processes and efficiently utilized the high-performance machine, extracting the maximum output. They have been efficiently running two W&H CONVERTEX block bottom sack production machines since August.

Windmöller & Hölscher spearheaded many innovations in woven PP. One of the fundamental developments was the CONVERTEX, which heat seals woven PP cross bottom bags and thus eliminates the need of glue for this type of bags. Also today CONVERTEX forms the backbone of the extensive portfolio of Windmöller & Hölscher in the woven PP business. During the last 10 years, the output of the Bottomer has doubled from 60 bags per min to 140 bags per min, representing the technological leadership of W&H in the domain of AD ProTex block bottom woven bags. The record production figure achieved by Kushal also showcases that CONVERTEX is designed to perform consistently at top speeds.

AD ProTex bags offer various advantages over conventional stitched bags including better filling efficiencies, no pilferage, easy stacking, temper resistance, no counterfeiting, no stitch holes and no leakage. These bags offer immense marketing value and greater visibility due to their box type shape. With highest print quality on the coated fabric, the bags also offer astounding aesthetics.
