In order to offer sustainable packaging solutions we work from the beginning of a project in close cooperation with customers and packaging material suppliers to develop solutions for saving packaging material and at the same time take into consideration the environment, the market, the customer‘s product and the overall packaging concept. Together with our customers and material suppliers we test new packaging materials made from renewable or recyclable materials to ensure that the materials can be processed on our packaging machines and that the greatest possible machine output is guaranteed. By using the tools from ZERO Technology, a quick switch from PS (polysterene) to more recyclable materials such as PET, PP and PLA can be realised and customers have now the opportunity to use these materials for their thermoformed cups. The tools can be applied to all cutting applications contained in an FFS machine. Their use reduces maintenance costs, increases the performance of the machine and have a longer punching time. Further equipment in the ZERO Technology range include special pre-heating plates, which can be easily dismantled and enable simple maintenance. Further material savings can also be realised by using the special thermoforming moulds, which enable the use of thinner materials.
