Switzerland-based Aisa Automation, a member of SIH Group, manufactures machines for producing laminated tubes and seamless plastic tubes. It has over 960 machines installed globally with 50 installations in India at some of the biggest tube manufacturers. The company has an assembly unit in Pune as well as a sales and services team there.

At Plastindia 2018, Aisa Automation highlighted two technologies from its portfolio: Decoplas and Decoseam.

Decoplas is a technology developed by Aisa Automation which combines standard plastic tube extrusion with labelling decoration. The Decoplas tubes have high bounce-back property and can be valuable for users who want decoration and logistics advantages of the label in a tube format with the feel and touch of an extruded tube.

Decoseam, a side seaming technology, can offer full 360° printability while still complying  with all established tube performance criteria, including both mechanical and barrier properties. This technology can offer greater visual impact, uninterrupted 360° design integrity and can be implemented on multilayer barrier structures.

“This is a gamechanger as in the cosmetics industry it is now a must to have 360° printing,” says Driss Nhari, area sales manager, Aisa Automation.

Talking about the experience at Plastindia, Nhari says, “We met potential customers, suppliers and even our competitors. The experience was better than expected.”

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.
