FlexPress 10000 Servo Control Liquid filling Machine for Liquid Packaging.

The UFlex engineering Business has now developed a faster aseptic liquid filling and sealing machine called the Flexpress 10000 Servo Control Liquid Filling Machine for Aseptic Liquid Packaging. With the burgeoning demand for packed beverages like juice, dairy products and alcohol burgeoning, the need for fast movement of supply chain operations including quick production has become non-negotiable.

To meet this growing demand, UFlex has developed the servo powered liquid filling machine Flexpress 10000 with the capacity to pack 10,000 aseptic liquid packs in an hour. The machine is equipped with a user-friendly Human Interface Module (HMI) integrated with an advanced Programmable Logic controller (PLC) system that facilitates easy operations. The USP of this machine is its main drive system which is aided by high-end water-cooled servo motors that provide the flexibility to manage a multiple volume range, quick change-over time, and prevent wear and tear of the machine. Since its launch, the machine has been generating excellent interest from brands with two machines already installed and several more being readied in the supply pipeline.

Meanwhile the Uflex Asepto plant in Sanand in Gujarat has also installed its second line Heidelberg Gallus flexo line for producing aseptic liquid packaging laminates. This line which is part of the doubling of capacity at Sanand was under trial and commissioning in the second half of FY2021-22.

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.
