Kushal Plasto achieves record production on W&H Convertex

Hyderabad-based Kushal Plasto kick-started its new year by clocking a record production. The engineers at Kushal’s Medchal plant achieved the highest-ever production of block bottom bags in a day by producing close to 1.5-lakh AD ProTex bags on a single W&H Convertex machine.

Responding to the growing market for PP woven block bottom bags in India, Kushal Plasto’s KC Jain had set up one-of-a-kind greenfield project for production of AD ProTex bags in South India in August last year.

Jain said, “The management believes this success is owed to our expert team, efficient utilisation of resources, adherence to processes and use of high-quality fabric.”

AD ProTex bags offer various advantages over conventional stitched bags: better filling efficiencies, pilferage proof, ease of stacking, tamper resistance, no stitch holes and zero leakage. According to Kushal Plasto, these bags offer immense marketing value and greater visibility due to its box type shape, with highest print quality on the coated fabric, the bags also have astounding aesthetics.

W&H’s Anuj Sahni said, “This achievement is owed to Kushal’s expert team, who quickly streamlined their efforts to defined processes and efficiently utilised the high-performance machine, extracting the maximum output. They have been efficiently running two W&H Convertex block bottom sack production machines since August.”

The Convertex machine heat seals woven PP cross bottom bags and thus eliminates the need of glue for sealing. Convertex forms the backbone of the extensive portfolio of W&H in the woven PP business. During the last 10 years, the output of the Bottomer has doubled from 60 bags per min to 140 bags per min.
