Bobst has come up with an animated video – ‘Bobst General K5000: Two Processes, One Machine’ which provides something a simple video cannot – an insight into what happens inside a vacuum metallizer. The animation provides a 360-degree view of the machine and clearly demonstrates how easily the Bobst General K5000 metallizer can be used fortwo processes without compromise; for coating both aluminium and aluminium oxide (AlOx) on to a wide range of substrates with high productivity. In addition to the robust Bobst Aluminium evaporation source, production can be switched simply at the touch of a button to AlOx deposition for high barrier transparent films.
The Bobst General K5000 is specifically designed for the high output film manufacturers end market; a well-established machine in the polymer film industry it metallizes at speeds up to 1,000metres a minute utilizing diameter rolls up to 1,200 mm and widths of up to 4,850 mm. The machine has several key features including large diameter coating drum; pump downtimes of less than 10 minutes; instant change over from Al to AlOx; unique winding system; eco mode – energy saving system; low production cost; and is suitable for the wide web market.
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.
