25 years of upakovka: Evoguard valves at the international packaging exhibition from 24 to 27 January 2017
The upakovka packaging exhibition already has already existed since a quarter century. It will celebrate its anniversary in Moscow from 24 to 27 January 2017 with numerous exhibitors and many visitors.
Krones is represented by its subsidiary Evoguard who will present its valves. Are you interested? Then come and visit the Evoguard stand FOD16 in the forum.
Visitors of upakovka 2017 (24 to 27 January) are not only in for ranges displayed by some 200 exhibitors from 19 countries but also for the Russian debut of the special innovationparc show, which has already become an established fixture at interpack in Düsseldorf over the past few years. Embedded in the innovationparc area is a lecture forum which will be busy with presentations over the entire duration of the trade fair.
The first day will see the official launch of the SAVE FOOD Initiative on the Russian market. As part of the programme devised by the Russian branch of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) high-calibre representatives from ministries and the industry will be speaking about the challenges and solutions concerning food losses and waste in Russia. Several companies active on the Russian market such as retail group METRO, the Food Bank “Rus”, the agricultural combine Olam or LavkaLavka, the cooperative of small and medium-sized Russian agricultural units, have already signalled their interest in the SAVE FOOD Initiative. According to estimates, up to about 25% of all foodstuffs produced in Russia end up not being consumed. Although this figure is under the global average of 30%, it is still clearly too high for a sustainable use of resources.
SOMIC, German producer of packaging equipment and box forming machines will take part in the international trade fair upakovka 2017, which is to take place on 24-27 January 2017 in Moscow.
Such functions as product changing, efficiency and affordability of machines are decisive factors for an optimum packaging process. Hence SOMIC will introduce Tray Packer 424 T2 for collating, grouping and packaging products in open trays and boxes, which is superior to equivalent equipment made by other producers as far as flexibility, speed, and format changing are concerned.
ALPMA Group (one of the leading producers of dairy and food industry equipment) will present its new SC 60 machine for cutting cheese into segments during upakovka 2017, which is to take place on 24-27 January 2017 in Moscow.
The machine is equipped with state-of-the-art servo technology for optimum monitoring and control of the cutting process. Depending on the need, it is possible to cut cheese blocks into a definite number of portions (without fixed weight), or by weight for fixed weight portions. Cheese measurement and segmentation is done fully automatically – as is the transportation of the cut cheese via a discharging conveyor.
The new label “interpack alliance” will in future span all international events staged by Messe Düsseldorf under its Processing & Packaging portfolio. Exhibitors and visitors will recognize these trade fairs by the umbrella logo which has been designed to echo that of interpack. Plans are also underway to align the visual appearance of the individual events to the style and colours of interpack.
Besides interpack itself – the flagship trade fair that gives this family its name – the interpack alliance includes upakovka (Moscow), food pex (Shanghai), china pharm (Shanghai), bulk pex (Shanghai), pacpro Asia (Shanghai), packtech India/food pex India (Mumbai), components (Düsseldorf), food processing & packaging exposyum Kenya (Nairobi), indopack (Jakarta), and process expo (Chicago). The four Chinese trade fairs take place every two years in a combined event known as Shanghai World of Packaging (swop). The fppe Kenya in December 2016 and the upakovka in January 2017 will be the first two trade fairs displaying the new visual identity.
Western technology for the production of packaging and related processes, as well as for the manufacturing of plastic and rubber goods is still highly valued by Russian companies. However, the political framework conditions, the fall of the oil price, and a continually weak rouble, having an inflation rate of approx. 15.8 percent last year, as well as hesitant lending as a result thereof are making it difficult to make investments, especially for small businesses.
On the other hand, there is still considerable investment needed inRussia and neighbouring countries. Above all, the demand has been placed on the domestic consumer goods industry, the food industry, and the packaging industry to optimise production processes and product quality in order to be able to substitute imports. Therefore staying informed concerning innovative technologies, maintaining business relationships with suppliers, or establishing new ones represented the main focus of visitors to the interplastica and the UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA 2016. From 26 to 29 January, 20.900 specialist visitors from Russia and its neighbouring countries came to the Moscow Expocentre in Krasnaya Presnya – around 1.900 more than in 2015. The atmosphere within the halls was remarkably great. The exhibitors reported there being extremely interested business people, who were also, in part, ready to make orders. A total of 828 companies from 38 countries presented their range of offers at both trade fairs.
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products, a leading manufacturer of semi-finished engineering plastic materials, will present its complete polymer portfolio to the Russian plastics market at Interplastica 2016.
The event takes place on January 26th-29th 2015 in Moscow, Russia. The company will co-exhibit with its local partner Plastmassy SPB. Quadrant’s experts will be on stand to demonstrate how its high-quality engineering solutions can best serve local as well global customers’ needs across a number of industries, including food, medical, automation and heavy manufacturing.
During the exhibition, Quadrant will showcase its full range of thermoplastic polymer shapes, from polyamide-based engineering polymers, to ultra-high performance polymers, including polyaryletherketone (PAEK), polyamide-imide (PAI) and polybenzimidazole (PBI). In addition, to address the increasing demand of the Russian market for materials with higher temperature resistance and enhanced wear and strength properties, the business will also present the polyetheretherketone Ketron PEEK range at Interplastica.
At the Interplastica, to be held in Moscow from 26 to 29 January 2016, Arburg will be presenting a practical example of production-efficient, cost-effective automated production. Visitors to exhibition stand C11 in Hall 3 will see a Golden Edition series hydraulic Allrounder and an integrated Multilift Select robotic system produce a toy buggy and assemble it ready for use in a single process step.
This system is an excellent example of how injection moulding companies can increase their efficiency in a targeted way, competitively producing plastic parts at minimal unit costs. The technical features of the exhibit are precisely tailored to the market needs of Russian plastics processing companies.
Arburg will demonstrate the high quality, automated and cost-efficient manufacturing of standard products based on the example of a toy buggy. In addition, the exhibit will provide proof of the performance capability of the proven Golden Edition series. An Allrounder 420 C Golden Edition with a clamping force of 1,000 kN and a size 290 injection unit will use a 1+1+2-cavity family mould to produce all parts in a single step. The cycle time is around 30 seconds. Following the injection moulding process, a Multilift Select robotic system removes the sprue and the four individual parts - the roof, chassis and two axles with overmoulded wheels - and assembles these on an assembly table to produce the finished buggy.
Depot WPF branding agency and the Russian Branding Consultancies Association (RBCA) organize the seminar program for marketing, branding and packaging design — UPAKOVKA / UPAK ITALIA 2016. The managing partner Depot WPF Anna Lukanina is the keynote speaker and the moderator of the session.
The topic of Anna Lukanina speech is "At Home Among Strangers: Why do we need to create a brand and why the consumer and the retailer should believe in your product?"
"Do we need a brand in crisis? Can we do without the investment in the creation and promotion of the brand, if your product is already on sale?" — the most pressing issues today. But do not forget that any retailer is interested in the fact that the product left the shelves. In this case it is more important to concentrate on what consumer likes than the retailer. Branding solves the problem of presenting the quality of the product to consumers. To ensure that the customer has identified your product as the best of the bunch, it is important to take care of the shape of the packaging and being an emotional experience for your intending purchaser", — sais the managing partner Depot WPF Anna Lukanina.
