Machinery upgrades

Talking about the company’s inspections systems, Amit A Bhave, sales manager international division, says, “We have upgraded our setup in order to provide Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Optical Character Verification (OCV) on our machines, which are required for pharmaceutical customers in regulated markets. Today, OCR and OCV are significant as these cameras check for the print quality while simultaneously checking the text. This helps facilitate inspection according to the defined presets entered in the system.”

Bhave further states, “In a scenario where wrong ink or substrate is used, or in case of a mismatch, it will be taken out of the system. This system can be helpful in pharmaceutical packaging as sensitive details like manufacturing date, expiry date, etc. needs to be clearly visible on the product pack.”

MB 150 series-Multilane stick pack machine.

MB 250: The company has come out with a new generation Single Tube Bagger built on the hygienic frame design, which leaves no corner susceptible to dirt. The machine comes with HMI from Schneider, Servo and PLC, which is powered by the TRIO motion control technology. The machine changeover is completely automatic—right from the loading roll in the unwind process to the changing of pouch formats. The machine is available in two variants—Standard Design and Ultra Clean Still Design with IP 67 class, which is suitable for frozen, meat and dairy products. MB 160 VPF 6- lane: Wraptech has recently supplied 6 stick pack machines having 6 lanes on each machine that feed on to a common conveyor to feed another bulk-bagging machine. “This project was a new addition to an existing customer’s plant, who was already using 10 machines since 2008,” says Bhave.

The road ahead

The company is in the process of building a facility at Khopoli in Raigad district of Maharashtra. The 10,000 square feet facility will boost the company’s current capacity of manufacturing 150 machines to 300 machines a year.

Karan Meghani, regional sales manager, Wraptech Machines, shares, “We are working hard to launch a high-speed continuous bagger which will give an output of 140 packs per minute at fill weight of 25 grams. Additionally, we are also developing 15-lane stick pack machines set to be released by 2018.”

Meanwhile, the company’s existing multilane model—MB 150 series which uses pneumatic cylinders for sealing—will be upgraded to full servo technology to improve the machine’s speed, thereby yielding better product quality and increasing reliability

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.
