We take your ideas and bring ours to the table. Close cooperation with the customer is the decisive factor for successful packaging development. According to the life cycle model, we analyse all the processes that the packaging goes through and define the requirements profile from this. Our 3D printer produces an initial hand sample overnight (using the FDM process). We build the prototype moulds with state-of-the-art CAD/CAM support. The pre-production series is used to validate the packaging. This data flows directly into the making of the mass production mould.
Thanks to CAD/CAM integration, the mould designer adopts the packaging development data directly for the multi-use mass production mould. Depending on the requirements profile, a simple and cost-effective separate-punching die concept or a high-precision integrated punched cut is used. The tool shop manufactures the deep-drawing moulds, the cutting dies and the stacking automation in-house.
The final inspection ensures that the customer receives packaging that presents impeccably, protects securely and is also fine all around in terms of handling.
The deep drawing or thermoforming of plastic films is the ideal process for producing thin-wall packaging that saves resources and can be disposed of in a space-saving manner.
The two-stage processing operation, film extrusion and subsequent moulding, offers many advantages over rival processes. Moderate tooling costs and a large degree of design freedom in terms of film structure are the most important plus points, in addition to the higher cycle rates.
The output capacity of modern thermoforming lines requires robot-assisted stacking technology.
The PP mesh is formed in a two-stage processing operation. The mesh structure saves up to 50 % plastic. The process is an important step in the area of sustainability, because the resource-saving packaging can be 100 % recycled.
The flat film extrusion lines are designed for single to multilayer rigid films. The screw geometry of the extruders, which is specially designed for recycled products, allows a high recycled content to be processed.
The recycling concept implemented closes the loop between the thermoforming line, the granulator, the regrind silo and the extruder, thus saving tremendously on logistics costs.
