Volpak’s SP-90 offers high production rates, manufacturing flat pouches with a zipper, capable of achieving a speed of up to 280 packages a minute

Volpak offers a complete line for the packaging of confectionery products, from pouch to case, ready to display. Pouches with a convenient and functional opening and re-closing system gives you the chance to open it, use its content and close the package at your convenience. The line is composed by three different machines – SP-90 (pouching machine), Pak 1312 (cartoner machine) and Daina 200 (case packer machine).

The pouch machine is the SP-90 with weight control, a model which has been developed to offer high production rates, manufacturing flat pouches with a zipper, capable of achieving a speed up to 280 packages a minute. It’s a compact model, featuring the individual adjustment for each pouch forming, which ensures a very good quality finish. The zipper applicator is available to work with the press-to-close or the Velcro type system. The direct weight control is compact, designed to greatly optimize the line’s space. Once the pouches are sealed, the transfer machine leaves them directly on the static weight controller. Another pick and place system gets the pouches out of the weighing unit and leaves them directly in the grouping-counter or in the laminating-vibrating belt as appropriate.

The Pak 1312, part of the ‘Pak’ series, is designed for cartoning pouches. Ideal for confectionery projects, it allows grouping the pouches in rows, arranging them vertically in a display case that can be exposed directly on the shelf. Volpak offers a wide range of pouch grouping systems to cover the majority of the market needs. The Pak cartoners work with regular or irregular cases as well as several closing systems, stacked flaps, glued flaps or a combination thereof. To conclude the line we got the Daina 200, an automatic packer suitable for side load cases. Compact equipment includes the boxes’ forming (B1 Type), grouping and insertion as well as the closing either with hot glue or adhesive tape. Customers may purchase a packaging machine or the complete production line guaranteed and under the responsibility of a single manufacturer. Large and multinational companies have already acquired this complete line.

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.
