E.E: How are they used by your clients? V.C: Our clients install these machines into their manufacturing plants. The machines work on the principle of any other machine in a manufacturing process with production lines. Products need to pass through the line where they get pushed into the machine for packaging.

V.C: Automation continues to be one of the biggest problems faced by this industry. The packaging industry, in many ways, is still to realize the true potential of automation. It gives us the chance to focus on this aspect when we design our new machines. We remain committed to innovation and will continue focusing on automation in our future products. E.E: How do your products help them overcome these problems? V.C: Our products are designed around solving the problem of automation. Keeping in mind our commitment, we recently launched an induction sealer with a universal head. Businesses no longer need to worry about having different sizes of caps for products. They can seal products with varying cap sizes at once. There is no need to change the sealing head. By doing so, we are able to save a lot of time for our clients. It directly translates to improved productivity and profit margins. E.E: Tell us about the future improvement of your products? V.C: Innovation and automation will continue to remain our focus areas.
