Syntegon showcases its versatile food packaging portfolio to Indian customers

Syntegon Technology India Managing Director Nilesh Vedak considered the show a complete success – one reason was the valuable discussions with customers about their individual needs.

From April 18 to 22, Syntegon opened its doors at the Verna site in Goa, India to customers and suppliers. The company held an in-house trade show to showcase its broad portfolio of packaging solutions for food products. Visitors got a closer look at vertical, horizontal and secondary packaging systems for chocolate, bars, snacks, powders and candies. They also learned more about Syntegon’s after-sales services and sustainable solutions. “The in-house show was a huge success. We not only showed our customers our versatile solutions and comprehensive packaging expertise, but also discussed their most pressing needs and laid the foundation for even more successful joint projects,” says Nilesh Vedak, Managing Director of Syntegon Technology India.

Versatility from start to finish

The Terra 25 HS high speed vertical form, fill and seal machine with strip pull technology is exclusively made in India and forms and seals 100 pouches per minute for snacks or sweets.

During the five-day event, visitors were able to get an overview of Syntegon’s full range of packaging. Two vertical baggers with integrated weighers demonstrated various packaging options for snacks. The SVE 3620 WR continuous bagger showcased Syntegon’s pack style flexibility by creating six different bag styles. Manufacturers looking for high speed systems were very interested in the SVE 2520 AR which packs chips at a rate of up to 95 bags per minute. The vertical range was completed with a Terra 25HS, a high-speed vertical fill and seal machine with strip pull technology. This system is exclusively made in India and forms and seals 100 pouches per minute for snacks such as nuts or sweets.

PrintPack Daily Show

With the BVK 2000 A mini bag forming, filling and sealing machine, Syntegon presented a high-speed solution for confectionery products. Visitors have witnessed the efficiency and reliability of the horizontal machine and its rapid changeovers which make it possible to process a wide variety of products. The same applies to the combination of the Pack 201 HS horizontal flow wrapper and the PDS product distribution system which was presented at the internal event – thanks to its flexibility, the machine is ideal for packaging products. of different flavors and sizes, such as chocolate, bars or cookies. Once packaged, the Sigpack TTME cartoner reliably places chocolates and bars into versatile carton formats and sizes.

Think ahead – focus on sustainability and services

Extensive services offered by Syntegon include spare parts, maintenance and technical support, as well as upgrades, operator training and remote support.

In addition to the technologies on display, Syntegon also informed visitors about its ongoing sustainability efforts. They received explanations from experts on technologies to handle more environmentally friendly materials, such as vertical bagging machines with the PHS 2.0 sealing system that can handle more durable mono-material film rolls. Syntegon also showcased solutions that allow manufacturers to use paper laminates on horizontal packaging machines – for new and existing systems.

Visitors were also able to learn about Syntegon’s extensive service offerings and digital solutions, including spare parts, maintenance and technical support, as well as upgrades, operator training and remote support. “Our comprehensive service portfolio covers the entire machine lifecycle and is tailored to individual needs. By inviting our customers and partners to our facilities, we were not only able to showcase our latest technologies and services, but we also learned a lot about their needs and challenges – the basis for further intensifying our partnerships,” says Nilesh Vedak.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the nationwide lockdown on March 25, 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned during this time? Perhaps the sense of resilience as small businesses like ours have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we struggled to produce our business platforms.

The printing and packaging industries have been lucky, although the commercial printing industry has yet to recover. We learned about the digital transformation affecting 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 an advanced technology that will only increase the demand for printing for the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe among the 90 countries where our five platforms are present. Our traffic, which more than doubled in 2020, sometimes increased by another 50% in 2021. And advertising, which had collapsed in 2020 and 2021, began to come back in January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with irregularities and shortages, we look forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again mandated to produce the Show Daily over the five days of the show from May 26 to 30, 2022.
