In Smithers’ report The Future of Package Printing 2027, the flexo industry has a positive growth of 2.4% CAGR through to 2027. The machine can run up to a speed of 600-m/min and will reduce industrial packaging costs. This adds to its advantages in terms of speed and efficiency, scaling the rise of the industry.

Goa-based Syntegon launches brand-new SVX vertical form-filling system (VFFS) series variants. The SVX Agile machine covers all basic tubular bag styles and can be upgraded with modules for corner sealed bags, three-sided seal bags, and zip bags. And, the SVX Duplex featured two film lanes on the same 1,220-mm wide frame, leading to higher output rates for basic bag styles such as a pillow, gusseted and block bottom bags.

Under the motto - multiply your value, Multivac Group presented its portfolio for the food industry, medical goods and pharmaceutical industries at the trade fair on a total of four exhibition areas.
