Barcelona, 29 May 2018.- With an industry in expansion due to the growing demand of Asian consumers, ProPak Asia will open its doors for four days on 13 June at the Bangkok International Trade Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Thailand. The most important packaging event in the region will thus become the best showcase for the most innovative solutions for the sectors of food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical products and packaging on the international stage. These will include the latest additions to the Mespack portfolio.
The company specializing in the manufacture of flexible packaging machinery will take advantage of its attendance at the Asian fair to reinforce its links with its commercial network, probe the market and consolidate sales, but also to publicize the new features of its key accounts, such as the new later cutting solution developed in partnership with MACSA ID. “The Asian market is a market highly focused on stick pack solutions for food and stand-up pouches, especially for food and beverage products and home care. In this regard, Mespack’s new laser cutting solution (presented at Interpack 2017 and considerably improved since then) will lead to considerable cost reductions,” states Santi Alberich, the company’s Marketing Director.
Until now, different equipment was required to cut and code the sachets. However, only one is needed with the new solution, which means fewer components and much less maintenance time. “In addition, the format changes are made in a much more streamlined way, especially if we want to make different shapes, as no matrices are required, we just have to change the welders,” adds Alberich. There will also be savings, in this case in terms of film, for users who make sachets with round or shaped edges, as they won’t need to leave the 2-3 mm margin required by the cutting matrices.
In addition, Mespack is currently working on enabling this cutting system to pre-cut the film to ensure easy opening.
A complete solution
Besides, Mespack, which has more than 300 machines in operation on the Asian continent and has a branch offering technical support in the region (“something highly appreciated by our customers”, recalls its Marketing Director), is also seeking to consolidate its new range of wrap-around products at ProPak Asia.
“The new WA series is our latest incorporation. Made available a few months ago, it enables us to perform the secondary packaging of flexible stand-up pouch packaging, as a result of which we can now say that Mespack offers customized solutions covering both primary packaging, thanks to the HFFS and HFS (coil-based forming or filling flexible pre-packaged sachets) and secondary packaging, enabling us to perform the new wrap-around. And, in addition, if necessary, we can do the palletizing”, stresses Alberich.
Mespack can also provide solutions for secondary rigid packaging for the food and beverage industry and the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and home care sectors among others. His end-of-line products catalogue includes wrap around machines, boxing machines, as well as palletisers suitable for working with this type of packaging.
Mespack will attend to its customers at stand AC22 at Propak Asia 2018.
