Bursting strength tester from Saurashtra Systopack

At IndiaCorr Expo this year, Saurashtra Systopack displayed a range of testing and end-of-the-line equipment. Akshay Gandhi, director of the company, showcased latest developments in testing instruments. A completely new crush tester and shorts span tester were introduced along with their end-of-line packing equipment, which included carton erectors, carton sealers and conveyers.

Talking about their carton erectors, Gandhi said, “It is a semi-automatic end-of-line packing system, employed for filling and sealing of products inside the shipping boxes. After filling and closing the four flaps of the box manually, it is further driven to another end through the free roller table. The roller table is a well-engineered product, where the boxes can easily slide through the spiral track. As the path follows the direction towards the centre of gravity, it becomes hard for the container to move in another direction. Hence, the free roller path is free of any electrical supply and pitch conveyor belt. The device is an ideal machine for the filling units having volume requirements of 500 to 1,000 boxes a day.”

For higher volume needs, the company provides complete automatic solutions, which is ideal for large warehouses. “There is a science behind how the end-of-the-line should be configured to which we strictly adhered,” he stated.

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.
