    B&B Triplewall regains corrugated world production record with BOBST flexo folder gluer

    Accomplishing a packaging production world record at any time is a huge achievement. But doing it during a global pandemic with a whole range of safety measures in place? That’s extraordinary.

    It is exactly what B&B Triplewall – a leading manufacturer of quality corrugated boxes in India – has achieved. On May 27th 2020, the company attained an incredible production level of 142,611 boxes in just 8 hours, breaking (and regaining) the world record for corrugated box production. The company achieved this feat using a FFG 8.20 DISCOVERY, a super-efficient Flexo-Folder-Gluer made by BOBST, one of the world’s leading suppliers of substrate processing, printing and converting equipment and services for the label, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated industries.

    How digitalization is transforming the packaging industry

    Digitalization, defined as the use of digital technologies to change a business model and provide new value-producing opportunities, is transforming entire industries with varying speed and scope. The retail, media and banking sectors are examples of industries that have been shaken to their core over a relatively short period of time. By and large, digitalization is not just the implementation of digital technologies into existing business architectures; it is about questioning existing business logics in the light of new possibilities offered by the latest digital technologies.

    The packaging industry is also undergoing a profound transformation, with brand owners shaking its value chain. They are under pressure from competition, market expectation and new local brands to reduce new product cycle times, from packaging design to arrival on the shelves. The reduction of lot sizes, the continual growth of digital printing and the need for color consistency between physical and online product displays, calls for more efficient workflow tools. Competition from traditional and emerging players is also intensifying within packaging plants around digital products and services.

    Is it the end for non-recyclable plastic packaging?

    How BOBST and its partners are pioneering new high barrier mono-materials laminates as environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional plastic

    Nothing perhaps defines our consumer-driven society of recent decades better than plastic. Its growth in production since the 1950s – largely driven by packaging – has been extraordinary. We now produce a staggering 300 million tons of it each year. But we know that the qualities that make plastic so suited for packaging – its versatility, durability, impermeability – also make it very environmentally unfriendly; non-biodegradable and challenging to recycle.
