Mas Systech (formerly MAS Enterprises) is a Pune-based manufacturer of end of line packaging machines for food, beverages, glass, and liquid segments. The company supplies its products to some of the renowned names, including Bosch, Sula, Amul, Piramal, Pepsi, and Sidel, with Tetra Pack being its biggest customer. Under its Pack Line series, the company laid prime focus on selling its Pick and Place Packer 140 at pacprocess 2019.
“After filling, sealing, and labeling of a product, the product needs to packed together in a bundle; that’s where we come in. The end of line packaging was predominantly done manually in India. We are trying to replace it by providing automated solutions,” said Mallikarjun Kulloli, director, Mas Systech.
Established in 2011, the company has branches in Delhi, Bengaluru, and Coimbatore. “We have started expanding our sales to the neighboring countries, including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal.
At pacprocess, Mas Systech is targeting beverage and alcohol producers as prospective customers. The company provides carton and shrink sleeve end of line packaging for beverage mainly as of now. “We got a good response from the alcobev industry when started off. But we are developing new products to accommodate beer cans and aseptic packaging packers, which will be launched next year. We are also expanding our manufacturing unit in Pune to supply to other segments as well. The new infrastructure will be up and running within a year,” Kulloli added.
The company has been participating in pacprocess for the last two years. Speaking about the upcoming trends in the industry, Kulloli said, “The demand for automation in the beverage industry will increase. The speed of manufacturing is rising rapidly. Our regular line can pack 100 bottles a minute. But as companies expand their production, they need faster solutions. With our solutions, they can increase their capacity from 100 bottles a minute to 300 bottles a minute within the same space; there would be no need to expand their current infrastructure. Also, things can be handled manually up to 100 bottles a minute. As soon as it gets more than that, it is difficult to manage it manually. That is where automation is required, and we see an opportunity.”
