Bobst Masterfold 75/110 folder-gluer has incorporated a new Bobst branding. Equipped with a series of automated setting functions, the Masterfold 75/110 enables short make-ready times and supports non-stop production, producing up to 2.7 million boxes per day.

Pierre Binggeli, product line director folder-gluers at Bobst, said: “Bobst has identified four cornerstones crucial to the future of packaging production; namely sustainability, automation, connectivity, and digitalization. Our vision is anchored in data access and control across the entire workflow to support customers achieve greater flexibility, agility, and efficiency.”

Also, the folder-gluer is designed with open frames and platforms, which increases the operator’s ergonomics and simplifies changeovers. With its new makeover, the cost of ownership is decreased, maintenance is simplified, and the machine’s accessibility is further increased.

The performance of the Masterfold in terms of productivity, ergonomics, and user-friendliness is also enhanced by a range of dedicated devices and peripherals.

Complementary peripherals create a fully automated, high-performance folding-gluing line. The Easyfeeder / Batch Inverter 4 motorized pre-feeder allows consistent and smooth feeding of blanks, preventing unscheduled production stops and further increasing productivity. 

The Cartonpack 4 high-performance packer automatically fills shipping containers with folded and glued cartons. It can also work in conjunction with a case erector, which automatically erects the containers to be filled. Thanks to these peripherals, the reduction in manual workload also improves the working conditions for the operator. It will help avoid issues with repetitive strain injury and other work-related health problems.

In response to e-commerce growth in 2020, the Gyrobox complementary device is a crucial solution to producing folding carton e-commerce boxes faster and more efficiently. This device simplifies the production of complex packages by rotating blanks in lines between two folding processes. Thus, it allows the rapid folding-gluing of boxes in a single pass – speeding up the production process, boosting efficiency, and delivering an exceptional quality finished product.

Binggeli added: “And let’s not forget the Accucheck quality control solution, that inspects every carton, filters, and ejects automatically defective ones, guaranteeing 100% quality-controlled production. In short, the Accucheck enables converters to increase efficiency and reduce waste with the aim of delivering zero-fault packaging to their clients.”

 

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.
