Uflex, one of the largest providers of flexible packaging in India, launched its SP-L automatic stick pack machine for liquid and paste packaging during the CPhI and P-Mec exhibition in Greater Noida. Other machines on display included MT 1200 multi-track machine, form fill and seal machine, VN 900 flameproof vacuum nitrogen flushing and sealing machine.
Talking about the newly launched machine, Mukesh Mohan Agarwal, general manager of Marketing, Uflex, said, “The new machine for stick packs can pack liquids and powders. It is a good machine for the pharma industry because most of its powder products are packaged in stick packs.”
Most of the machines displayed on the company’s stand were designed for pharma packaging applications in sachet form with a maximum speed of 1200 sachets per minute.
Agarwal mentioned that the form fill and seal machine from Uflex can pack any powder, granule or liquid in flexible laminate pouches in sizes ranging from 250 milligrams to 5 kilograms. “This machine can pack liquid and powder products in five different sizes starting from 250 milligrams – a minimal quantity referred to as a unit dose in the pharma industry.”
Speaking about the show, Agarwal said, “This is our third participation at the show. The exhibition is good for the pharma industry. However, this hall did not see much footfall in comparison to the other halls. The last edition of the show was much better in terms of footfall. The organizers need to address this concern and maybe create better connectivity with the other halls.”
