Bobst India used the platform of Pamex 2015 to talk about it two recently launched products. There were no demonstrations at the stand but information about the products was disseminated via video. Bobst promoted its Novacut 106 ER diecutter and LILA-II folder-gluer. Both these technologies were presented earlierthis year at Competence ’15, which was held at Bobst’s Pune facility. LILA-II folder- gluer was premiered at Competence’15.

The Novacut 106 ER diecutter has in-line blanking on a diecutter which is comparatively a new process for folding carton converters in India. At present a majority of folding carton makers in this region diecut jobs with stripping or without stripping done manually. This new Novacut gives carton makers access to in-line blank separation.

“These two products have been a success in the Indian market and we have done lot of installations,” said Amit Tiwari, sales manager – West, business unit-sheetfed. LILA-II folder-gluer which was introduced at Competence’15 has been well received by both folding carton and corrugated board packaging makers with its smooth blank transportation, excellent folding quality and high productivity, handling both micro-flute and heavy corrugated board with ease. This folder-gluer represents an extension of the successful LILA range of machines for litho-laminated box production on 145 cm and 170 cm widths needed by corrugated packaging manufacturers. The machine is also available in 106 cm and 126 cm widths for folding carton and litho-laminated box production.

The new LILA II is a combined effort of the team in India and at Bobst Mex and is produced at the Pune factory. Talking about the response received at Pamex 2015, Tiwari stated that the company was able to meet a lot of existing customers at the event. However, there were not many new customer enquiries, despite a huge number of visitors during the four days.

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.
