VS International, a leading Faridabad-based Indian manufacturer of vertical form fill and seal machines, introduced its new GT-5S Continuous Motion vertical form fill sealing system at the recently held Pamex exhibition in Mumbai. The GT-5S machine has a user-friendly touch screen operator interface with multi-function controls. Users have access to real-time machine performance data from the operator interface.

The machine’s control system is powered by a Trio-Motion Controller and all functions including sealing, bag pulling, pull roller and unwinding have dedicated individual servo motors and drives that are controlled by a high-end motion CPU with intelligent software. Vacuum-assisted pulling belts can be offered with an oil-free vacuum pump to ensure slippage-free and smooth film pulling. The servo motor driven unwinder unwinds the film in synchronization with the machine speed and bag length.

The stainless steel air shaft can easily manage reels with diameters up to 18 inches. This reduces the changeover time of reels by 50% with the same output. Interestingly, the sealing time remains constant at any given speed and the increase or decrease of the machine’s speed doesn’t affect sealing quality. The lightweight, efficient and integral chutes prevent blocking of the forming tube and the chute while handling products with low mass or less bulk density and surface area.

Talking about the advantages of the new machine, Vikram Sharma, VS International’s proprietor says, “In this new machine the twin baggers are mated to a single weigher, so there is lower capital investment. As it is vertical, it offers space saving and due to its efficient construction and uses up to 60% less floor area. Besides, double output can be achieved with marginal increase of initial and operational cost. Lastly, the machine has an operational interface which enables quick and error-free operations.”

Highlighting some other benefits, Sharma says, “The machine comes with a robust steel frame with a compact design and common control interface for ease of operation. It is also compatible with our other machines like cup, auger and weigher. It offers an option to run the same or a variable quantity on tracks with an extended option to select whether to run one or both tracks at the same time.”

The company has a fully integrated factory with a state-of-the-art R&D center with qualified workforce. VS International has always considered its customers as partners in its growth and has earned a prestigious reputation in the industry for its close attention in integrating the latest design technologies, and for the rugged support and services for relevant applications, believes Sharma.

At the company’s stand at the Pamex exhibition in Mumbai, it received an overwhelming response from visitors with many showing interest in the new GT-55 VFFS high-speed duplex machine. Apart from this machine, the company also offers solutions such as a 4-head weigher, cup filler, multi-head weigher, stick pack and auger filler.

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.
