Vacuum metallizing is one of the most complicated technologies used in the flexible packaging business; therefore, it is essential that it has the capability to run continuously. To ensure this, it is critical to have after-sales support which has specialized skill-sets and comprehensive experience of understanding problems and trouble shooting. This mix of skills and experience is usually difficult to find within a service team.

The 8-strong Bobst Indian service team based in 3 locations across India has extensive knowledge of vacuum metallizers with a combined total of 100 years’ experience across the team; this means as well as maintenance and servicing of machines, they can also offer expert advice and training on process optimization and machine operation such as how to maintain OD uniformity within acceptable limits and how to avoid defects such as pin holes and scratches.

Bobst services are perceived as the benchmark in the industry and the team is passionate about delivering world-class services for world-class machines. You can keep your Bobst vacuum metallizer in peak condition with a range of service packages including Maintenance Plus, which includes regular machine health checks, preventative maintenance and priority visits should any problems arise and expert telephone support 24 hours a day. Additionally, the team can assist with settings for optimization, upgrades and retrofits to boost machine productivity and ergonomics and supply of genuine Bobst spare parts and consumables, which are available at the Bobst Pune warehouse.

As well as servicing machines within India, when necessary, the team also installs and commissions metallizers in other areas such as the Middle East, Egypt, South America and South-East Asia.

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.
