When certain environmentalists, consumer rights activists and even the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in India voiced their apprehensions on PET (polyethylene terephthalate) technology being used for packaging of food products and medicines, scientists conducted extensive studies to nullify such fears. The findings of these authentic studies as well as global certifications reiterated that PET bottles are safe for pharmaceutical packaging. The All India Plastics Manufacturers Association also echoed the message that the Indian standards at times are more stringent than international standards.
Simultaneously, the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) in association with Strategy&, the monitoring wing of global market survey and consultant, Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) also undertook a study on the proposal to impose a ban to restrict the use of plastics for packaging of all FMCG and non-essential items. Their observation was that an outright ban on use of polymer based materials like PET for packaging is not a prudent solution to address the concerns raised.
Consequently, the plastic mold manufacturer in the country has geared up to produce quality products so as to ensure that PET packaging is no more harmful to human beings. For instance, the New Delhi-based Acme Disys has an established strong infrastructure wherein all safety measures are taken and the workers operate in a fully secure environment. It has setup a modern Tool Room which houses the most advanced and sophisticated machinery operated by qualified engineers and trained professional technicians.
The high end CNC machines, procured from Mazak, Makino, MoriSeiki and Agie Charmiles, and equipped with online inspection features produce high precision mold inserts and fine quality mold bases. All these factors have enabled Acme Disys to be the most favoured mold making company in the country. Such a set up has facilitated the combined process of production of mold components, assembly as well as testing processes to take place in perfection at the same stage.
