Pune-based Pratham Technologies, a manufacturer of paper folding machines,
showcased their carton inspection system, Supersort, at Pamex 2015. Datta Deshpande, director of Pratham Technologies, said, “We have been part of every Pamex
event as we feel it helps us connect with the consumers better. Since the show is being held in Mumbai, it is an extra bonus for us since the big fish that is the major
packaging players are from in and around the city.”
Pratham in association with Vision Experts has made the Supersort 100% carton
inspection system, wherein the feeder, inspections conveyor, ejector and other supplementary systems are manufactured at Pratham while the software and illumination system is made in Germany.
Elaborating on the benefits of the machine, Deshpande said, “The illumination
system and the software developed by Vision Experts, who have been in the industry for 20 years, are used in the machine, making it top-notch in its segment.” He further added, “The ejection system uses a non-contact air ejector that is much quicker.” The machine displayed at the show was to be transferred to a Mumbai-based firm. The name of the company was not discussed for business reasons

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 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.
