Taiwan-based Paktek, a manufacturer of auto folder-gluers, auto flute laminators and flattening and slicing machines will demo the KS-1600M at Hall 13 Stand A37 at drupa 2016. The KS-1600M offers a cost-effective solution to make big cartons with the existing line of converting equipment. The investment includes the package cost of the integrated 2-gun cold and 2-gun hot melt gluing injection system.

The combined gluing system ensures firm bonding, even under extreme temperature variations during global transportation and is quite friendly to the environment. It can handle duplex boards, E, B, A and BE corrugated board for irregular designs and RSCs for sizes of 3,200 mm or larger than 3,200 mm. It takes 5 to 15 minutes only for job changeover time to reach the average production speed of 500 to 800 cartons an hour. The KS-1600M has a unique stopper which offers an accurate regulation support, auto lifting table, pressing unit and counter delivery.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.
