Pac Equipments.

Orchestrating seamless packaging

One of the most important factors in chocolate packaging is to ensure the chocolates do not collide with each other or fall on each other. It needs to be oriented in the exact manner before being wrapped. “We have been catering to factories providing chocolate packaging for more than a decade. We understand the complexities in the packaging process and our experts have an in-depth understanding of the customer needs. This helps us to exceed our customer requirements,” says Mangal Rawat, director, M.S. Pac Equipments. The first step to efficient, effective, and high-speed packaging is the smart infeed to the horizontal flow wrap machine. This helps the machine builder to adjust the infeed speed without stopping the machine.

Chocolates must be packed with utmost care as handling them might become challenging due to ambient temperatures. The pressure on the product has to be accurate to avoid spoiling. Moreover, the chocolates need to be oriented in the right direction and side so that the packaging material and the chocolates are aligned. The next challenge is to avoid chocolate collision, which might affect the chocolate shape or chocolates sticking to each other. “Our machines help factory operators reduce waste thanks to the robust mechanics and precise control algorithms. Our horizontal form-fill-seal (HFFS) machines operate at very high speeds of around 600 packs per minute, which is one of the fastest in the market,” says Sajeev Kumar, director, M.S. Pac Equipments.

Trio Motion for precision and speed

“Trio Motion Technology is a key enabler for our packaging machines as we continuously strive for precision and high-speed performance in horizontal form-fill-seal applications. With its cutting-edge motion control solutions, Trio Motion Technology enables us to elevate our packaging machinery to new levels of efficiency and accuracy,” says Machindra Temkar.

Trio’s advanced motion controllers and servo drives guarantee precision and ensure chocolates are accurately filled, sealed, and packaged. “With Trio Motion Technology’s user-friendly software, we allow users with easy programming and rapid deployment, reducing setup time and enabling swift adaptation to various packaging requirements.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
