The new Sidel can and glass fillers, based on the proven Sidel Matrix platform, offer producers of beer and CSD improved hygienic conditions, maximized efficiency and high flexibility

Exhibiting as part of the Sidel Group, along with Gebo Cermex, Sidel will be introducing
a number of breakthrough packaging solutions at Drinktec 2017 (stand A6.330), to help
producers meet the challenges of ever-changing demands in beverage markets.

Frédéric Sailly, executive vice president for Product Management and Development at Sidel, comments, “Beverage producers, brand owners and co-packers need to stay competitive in an evolving and demanding market, with easy-touse, smart, flexible and customised solutions. At Drinktec 2017 we are looking forward to showing how this understanding of our customers’ needs and the trends in the liquid packaging industry enables us to deliver greater performance for bottling lines. The future-proof technologies and market-tailored innovations on display on our stand are designed to achieve these goals while optimising total costs of ownership (TCO) and ensuring high product quality and enhanced versatility.”

Among the global launches taking place at Drinktec are:
• The Sidel Super Combi – an all-in-one system for water and carbonated soft drinks (CSD) production that delivers ready-to-sell products at very high speed, with maximum uptime and ease of operation – all at the lowest TCO. Integrated equipment intelligence means it continuously self-optimises for the best possible performance and efficiency, making it one smart solution.

• The new modular labeller which has the flexibility to accommodate different labelling technologies applicable to both glass and PET containers, for easy and quick format changeovers and increased productivity.

• The new Sidel can and glass fillers, based on the proven Sidel Matrix platform, offer producers of beer and CSD improved hygienic conditions, maximised efficiency and high flexibility. This allows the production of top quality drinks that meets strict standards in terms of sustainability. Another highlight at Drinktec 2017 will be the Sidel Group Agility 4.0 framework. This offers customers digitally-aided understanding, enhanced performance and packaging mass customisation opportunities.

Additionally, solutions to handle aseptic and hot fill production in PET will be a particular focus on the stand with experts available to discuss these technologies. Recently, Sidel received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Aseptic Combi Predis FMa blow fill seal filler. This solution is the world’s first aseptic PET filling equipment with dry preform sterilisation validated for low acid manufacturing and commercial distribution in the United States and other FDA markets.

Recognising the importance of services, Sidel will also be highlighting its Sidel Services portfolio which helps customers to build, maintain and improve the performance of bottling lines throughout the production lifecycle.

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.
