Corrosion resistant side-seal strappersMosca Direc’s MS-VA & TRS-VAStrapping specialist Mosca Direc is introducing two new machines into the UK market which are ideal for the challenging environments of poultry and meat processing and packing. The new SoniXs MS-VA and SoniXs TRS-VA machines are the first side-seal strappers that are corrosion resistant and work with Mosca’s own ultrasonic technology, SoniXs. In addition, the machines feature a new, exposed Standard-6 strap path, also made of corrosion-resistant material. The machines have been designed for use under extreme conditions such as dampness or with contaminated products. Strapping specialist Mosca Direc is introducing two new machines into the UK marketThe SoniXs MS-VA is a manual machine, while the SoniXs TRS-VA works in a fully automated production line in which packages are fed automatically. Both compact machines can be relied on to strap variable product sizes at up to 33 cycles a minute, depending on product and in-feed system. They are easily operated via keyboard and selection switches and offer the option of a single or double hold-down device.

Mosca’s SoniXs technology combines speed and efficiency with low emissions. As the system requires no pre-heating, machines are instantly available at all times. The easily accessible, open construction makes cleaning and maintenance of the machines easier. They can be dismantled without tools and are ready for use afterwards within just a few seconds.

Mosca SoniXs MS-VA and SoniXs TRS-VA machines are part of a vast range of automatic, semi-automatic and fully automated strapping machines. They are German manufactured, top-of-the- range strapping equipment and are available in the UK from Mosca Direct of Cotgrave, Nottingham. They fit easily into existing lines to replace old machines or as part of a new project to improve throughput, due to their speed and efficiency.

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.
