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.

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 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.
