And the type of machines used to pack different kinds of goods by which several machines come into mind. Several packaging machines are currently being used in our country, and there is less awareness about these machines. Therefore, people would be made aware of the types of packing machines and equipments that are currently used in Pakistan.
As we purchase everyday items and sometimes don't even know that those machines package these types of things. These items include Tetra packs, breads, biscuits, packed Rotis as well, etc. Therefore, now we would be discussing several packing machines that are used in Pakistan.
Types of packing machines currently used in Pakistan.
The following are the types of machines that are used in Pakistan for packing purposes of different types of goods:-
As previously in Pakistan, the cow milk was used almost all over the country, but since the milk packing machine arrived in Pakistan. Then the customers of milk slowly and gradually shifted towards tetra packs and the milk packaged from machines.
People were reluctant about going towards these machines, but as awareness increased, how safe the milk is from packaging machines. Then people transferred towards packaged milk such as Tetra pack, Milk-Pak, Olper's, Haleeb, etc. Moreover, now these milk packing machines are commonly used in Pakistan and are famous almost worldwide.
The people of Pakistan eat Nimco when there is snack time or tea time; thus, It is also necessary to remind people that they are also packed by packing machines and not by hands.
As it is almost impossible to pack these nim cos through hands. Even if possible, there will be many germs transferred to those nim cos.
The sachet machines are used to pack items in sachets, such as shampoos, etc. Many people of Pakistan also use the sachet shampoos. That's why it is essential to mention that these sachets or any product that comes in sachets are packed by these sachet packing machines. These machines are known as multi-lane machines. Before being packed, the sachets pass through different lanes before being packed finally and then going towards wholesalers, retailers, or consumers.
When discussing packing machines, it's always essential to discuss capsule filling machines. The tablets are among the most sensitive products as they have to be used by the patients. So it is necessary to pack those tablets through those machines in which there are 0 bacteria or viruses by which these tablets are packaged through the capsule filling machines. The capsules and tablets are packed and filled through these machines.
Bottle filling machines are used in the organizations in which cold drinks are packed. These machines are ubiquitous in cold drinks companies such as Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Sting. All these bottles are filled through those machines in all cold drink companies, and all companies use similar types of bottle packing machines.
Plastic packing machines are used to pack plastic products and materials. Although plastic materials are now considered polluting products, these machines are currently being used in Pakistan for packing purposes. However, fewer disposable items will be required in the future. These packing machines pack products such as plastic bottles, shoppers, etc. However, with time, these machines would become obsolete as plastic is hazardous to the environment; that's why they will not be used in the coming future.
The pouches used in household items and almost every Pakistan home, from low to rich, are packed through pouch packing machines. There are several sizes of pouch products used in Pakistan which are packed through these machines. E.g., Shangrila ketchup, iodized salt, etc., as these all are the pouches products.
When discussing filling machines, it is also necessary to discuss ice-cream filling machines as the Ice-cream shop owners use them to fill the ice-cream they want. These ice-cream filling machines are still used in Pakistan on selected shops from which the cone of the ice-cream is filled.
One of the significant packing sector is the Textile sector in Pakistan. This sector packs clothes and send them to almost all over Pakistan. However, the process of packing clothes is no easy task; that's why the clothes are packed through several machines until the process of wrapping clothes becomes complete. Therefore, every textile firm and mill use clothes packing machines in their organization in Pakistan.
Although not entirely considered a packing machine but shrink wrap machine is used to produce foiling papers or wrappers wrapped around any product. For example, the foiling wrappers that we see around bottles are produced through a shrink wrap machine. Therefore, that's why this machine has made it to the list.
Therefore, the above mentioned are the packing & filling machines and equipments, which are commonly used in Pakistan to pack the products, and several companies provide them. The packaging machinery and equipments that are used in Pakistani companies for the packing purpose are manufactured worldwide and in Pakistan. The companies sometimes use Pakistani manufactured machines and sometimes import these machines and use them in companies.
Following are the companies in Pakistan which manufactures packaging machinery and equipments in Pakistan:-
SAMA Engineering is one of the best manufacturers of packaging machinery in Pakistan. They have all the details available on their website. By looking at their website, it can be said that SAMA engineering is a good company for manufacturing packaging machines in Pakistan. It is located in the Nazimabad area of Karachi. Nazimabad no. 02.
Although the name is funny, this company also manufactures very high-quality machines for packaging and filling purposes. They provide these machines all over Pakistan. This company is also located in Karachi in DHA Phase 2, and it has branches in Lahore as well.
Lahore engineering company: Lahore engineering company also manufactures packaging machines and equipments and provides them throughout the country in the organizations which use these packaging machines.
In this company, the product (packing machines) they offer is already stated in the name. Customers would know clearly that they could order packing machines and from customers. It means that those organizations are being discussed that purchases are packing machines and equipments. This company is also located in Karachi.

Therefore, the above mentioned are the packaging machinery and equipment manufacturing companies that complete manufacturing work in Pakistan. These machines are not only used in Pakistan, but they are exported outside the country as well. Due to the export of these machines, the GDP of Pakistan is affected positively. It's also good that Pakistan is also exporting some technology outside the country. Its balance of trade and balance of payments would also be affected positively to some extent.
Therefore, the above mentioned are the machine packing machines. The companies that provide these machines are also known now. The organizations that use these machines would understand that they could purchase these machines.
Moreover, the following suggestions should be followed:-
Do not pack plastic in the machines as plastic is one of the worst pollutants which pollute the environment.
Sell the plastic manufacturing machines as those machines could not be scrapped as the machine manufacturing companies could not bear that loss. Suddenly discarding those machines will make those organizations suffer huge losses.
The textiles and other organizations that use packaging machines for the packing purpose should purchase machines from Pakistani manufacturers rather than international manufacturers. It will be better for the country.
People should be made aware of this side of Pakistan. Pakistanis should be proud that packaging machines are being produced in Pakistan.
Therefore, the suggestions mentioned above should be followed by which the Pakistani machinery industry would flourish. Pakistan's economy will also groom.
