Both Kavathekar and Patil also shared details about the blanking tool manufacturing facilities available at Bobst India. Also present at the seminar from Bobst India were Sunil Khodke and Sachin Mahajan who talked about the operator-training program offered by Bobst.

James Farell from magnesium Elecktron shared details about application of embossing and hot foil stamping blocks with properties of different material. In addition to this, the seminar had a guest speaker, Josef Daurer, from Voestalpine, Austria who spoke about the quality of different type of cutting and creasing rules, and their properties and benefits.

“The seminar was a great learning experience for us,” said Sachin Singhal of Packfraft Corrugate India, Kundli, Haryana, who attended the seminar. “We have changed the cutting plate on our automatic diecutting machine as recommended by Mr. Luthra during his presentation and achieved excellent results.”

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.
