Serac Group

At ProPak India 2019 which will be held in Mumbai from 21-23 October, Nova, a company of Serac Group, will showcase the latest version of the cup filling machine Neo. This machine is able to fill cups up to 12 000 cups per hour.

The Neo range is intended for filling pre-formed cups at low and medium speed. According to the company, this compact and ergonomic design allows reducing the footprint on cup packaging lines compared to linear solutions.

Neo machines can be used to fill cups with yogurts, dairy desserts, food products, and even beverages. Two filling stations offer the possibility to produce single or two-layer products, the supplementary layer being either pre-filled or post-filled. They can process cylindrical or rectangular cups and deal easily with several cup sizes. Changeovers require no tool and can be done within 15 minutes.

A specific version is also available for the automatic filling of non-de-stackable containers such as glass or carton cups.

“Thanks to this newly developed Neo machine, the indexed rotary cup filling is no longer limited to low-speed filling. This rise of speed allows now manufacturers to target markets which report an increase of yogurt and dairy products consumption with more and more new products formulations and packages,” the company said.

The latest version of the Neo filler has also been designed with a constant concern for cost optimization, so as to be within reach for a maximum number of manufacturers.

Serac will be in Booth Q44.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
