Syntegon shows its versatile food packaging portfolio to Indian customers

Successful inhouse show at the Syntegon site in Verna (Goa), India

The Managing Director of Syntegon Technology India, Nilesh Vedak, considered the trade fair as a complete success – one of the reasons were the valuable discussions with customers on their individual needs.

From 18 – 22 April, Syntegon opened its doors at the Verna site in Goa, India, to customers and suppliers. The company hosted an inhouse show to present its broad portfolio of packaging solutions for food products. Visitors were able to take a closer look at vertical, horizontal and secondary packaging systems for chocolate, bars, snacks, powders and candy. They also learned more about Syntegon’s after-sales services and sustainable solutions. “The inhouse show was a huge success. We not only showed our customers our versatile solutions and comprehensive packaging expertise, but we also discussed their most pressing needs and laid the foundation for even more successful joint projects,” says Nilesh Vedak, managing director of Syntegon Technology India.

Versatility from start to finish


The high-speed vertical form, fill seal machine with belt draw-off technology Terra 25 HS is exclusively manufactured in India and forms and seals 100 pouches per minute for snacks or candy.

During the five-day event, visitors were able to gain an overview of Syntegon’s comprehensive packaging portfolio. Two vertical bagging machines with integrated weighers demonstrated various packaging options for snacks. The SVE 3620 WR continuous bagger showcased Syntegon’s pack style flexibility by creating six different bag styles. Manufacturers looking for high-speed systems were highly interested in the SVE 2520 AR that packages potato chips at an output of up to 95 bags per minute. The vertical portfolio was completed by a Terra 25HS, a high-speed vertical form, fill seal machine with belt draw-off technology. This system is exclusively manufactured in India and forms and seals 100 pouches per minute for snacks such as nuts or candy.

With the BVK 2000 A mini-bag form, fill and seal machine, Syntegon showcased a high-speed solution for confectionery products. Visitors witnessed the efficiency and reliability of the horizontal machine and its fast changeovers that make it possible to process a variety of products. The same goes for a combination of the Pack 201 HS horizontal flow wrapper and the PDS product distribution system which was presented during the inhouse event – thanks to its flexibility, the machine is ideal for packaging products that come in different flavors and sizes, such as chocolate, bars or cookies. Once wrapped, the Sigpack TTME cartoner reliably places chocolates and bars in versatile carton formats and sizes.

Thinking ahead – focus on sustainability and services

The extended services offered by Syntegon include spare parts, maintenance and technical support, as well as modernizations, operator training and remote assistance.

In addition to the exhibited technologies, Syntegon also informed visitors about its ongoing sustainability efforts. They received expert explanations about technologies to process more eco-friendly materials, such as vertical baggers with the PHS 2.0 sealing system that can handle more sustainable mono-material film rolls. Syntegon also presented solutions that enable manufacturers to use paper laminates on horizontal packaging machines – for both new and existing systems.

Visitors were further introduced to Syntegon’s extended service offers and digital solutions, including spare parts, maintenance and technical support, as well as modernizations, operator training and remote assistance. “Our comprehensive service portfolio covers the entire machine lifecycle and is tailored to individual needs. By inviting our customers and partners to our facility, we were not only able to present our most recent technologies and services, but we also learned a lot more about their needs and challenges – the basis to further intensify our partnerships,” explains Nilesh Vedak.

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.
