Volpak, a Coesia company, will take part in the 2022 Pack-Expo trade fair in Chicago and showcase the new SI 280, a horizontal form fill seal machine for the flexible packaging of consumer goods.

As a leader in the designing and manufacturing of flexible packaging machines for over 40 years, Volpak aims to strengthen its commitment to the North and South American markets. Volpak is part of Coesia, a group of innovation-based industrial and packaging solutions companies operating globally and will exhibit its innovations at the Coesia booth S-2501. 

Coesia will present machines and products designed to increase the reliability and efficiency of production processes in food & beverage and pharma & personal care, as well as showcasing cross industry automation solutions. Volpak machines lead the industry in terms of performance and flexibility, catering the diverse needs of both bigger and smaller brands in the consumer goods market. 

Sustainability in flexible packaging 

With the creation of the PouchLab in 2018 the Spanish company has sent a tangible signal by creating a place that allows for the testing of the strength and durability of new sustainable packaging materials, such as mono-material ones, as well as their machinability and market application.

New SI 280 

Volpak will exhibits the SI 280 machine, capable of handling 100% recyclable materials – both packaging material and the hinge of zip pouches. The SI 280 features the assisted automated format change — a feature now available for the entire SI series via HMI. Format change is an important phase of production, which is why Volpak has automated some steps, especially in the envelope forming area, to optimize and speed up operations, allowing even technicians without specific training to be able to work on the machines. 

The automation and digitalization of the entire SI series allow Volpak machines to be increasingly interconnected with production processes.

Optimate and Performate

Another key feature of the SI 280 is the presence of OptiMate, the new Coesia smart HMI embedded on a Coesia panel. OptiMate makes it easier to change the format and maintain the machine, thanks to the intuitive interface and guided procedures. 

The version on show in Chicago will be set up in a premium mode and will feature advanced characteristics compared to the standard version, including the ability to perform a production analysis through detailed reporting and advanced diagnostics for predictive maintenance. 

In practice, OptiMate is a fundamental asset not only for controlling the machine in a simple and intuitive way, keeping under control every aspect  during operation, but also for optimizing production and, consequently, the consumption of material and energy. 

On top of OptiMate, the SI 280 features PerforMate, Coesia’s IIoT platform for real-time machine monitoring, which allows one to improve the control, collaboration, and performance of the entire machine pool, also working as a single portal for many innovative services.

The trade fair will take place from October 12 to 26, 2022.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
