TCPL’s new Paktek laminator

Reducing curving and warping

Paktek auto flute laminator can handle the lamination of cardboardto-cardboard, cardboard to corruguated boards by single-face board, single-wall and also doublewall corrugated boards

In 2011, it was for the first time that TCPL adopted the Paktek auto folder gluer and then in 2012, the Paktek auto flute laminator was installed. Due to the satisfactory performance of the machines, TCPL will be installing another Paktek flute laminator. During the visit of All in Print 2014 held from 14 to 17 April in Shanghai where Paktek auto flute laminator with auto pile turner; auto folder-gluer with easy pack; and manual one and two-piece folder-gluer had been demonstrated, the management team and Saket Kanoria, managing director of TCPL, expressed their positive feedback on the high quality products from Paktek.

TCPL Packaging, one of the largest exporters of printed cartons, operates out of its six manufacturing units in different cities of India. All the plants are ISO9001: 2008, ISO22000: 2005 certified and are also compliant with BRC/IoP Global Standard-Packaging Issue 3, which is suitable for directfood contact. In addition, plants at Silvassa and Haridwar are also FSC certified and Sedex compliant.

Paktek auto flute laminator can handle the lamination of cardboard-to-cardboard, cardboard to corruguated boards by single-face board, single-wall and also double-wall corrugated boards. The available options are prefeeder and auto pile turner which is compact on measurement and can be connected to different brands of flute laminators. The auto stacking system with flip function is a good solution to reduce the curving and warping problem and is very friendly to operators, saving 50% of manpower and speeding up the machine production.

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.
