The demand for alternative packaging materials is increasing and more and more customers are interested in sustainable packaging in paper for a variety of reasons. We here at Kallfass have solutions at the ready that can be used immediately and can meet the customers’ requirements straight away. On a Kallfass automatic shrink wrap machine, packaging materials made of both paper and film can be processed reliably into bags or sleeves.
For over 50 years, Kallfass has been offering complete solutions for packaging in film and, with its high level of system solution expertise, has played a major role in shaping the technological developments of film packaging machines and shrink tunnels over the past decades. The result – state of the art packaging systems for primary and secondary packaging for a wide variety of product areas, which reliably pack for customers all over the world around the clock.
Papers and films can be processed on
packaging machines from Kallfass
However, shrink wrappers from Kallfass not only process films made from fossil or recycled materials, but also the still relatively new packaging materials based on cellulose, i.e. papers. In order to make paper a successful packaging material, Kallfass is working on the packaging solution of the future and is contributing its know-how acquired over decades and its entire technology in the form of different shrink wrap machines to the development of future-proof packaging papers. The declared goal: perfect packaging in paper. The advantages of paper packaging are obvious, because paper as a packaging material is considered sustainable and environmentally friendly and can be directly and conveniently fed into the recycling economy, which has been established for years, via waste paper. High recycling rates are guaranteed.
Kallfass supports the development of sustainable packaging papers
The papers currently available on the market deliver impressive and promising packaging results, even though their development is still in its infancy. These can be reliably processed on Kallfass shrink wrappers into bags and sleeves. Whether used on 2-side sealing machines such as the Servo Packer series or banding machines of the Super Wrap series, small to large products and light to medium-weight products are securely packaged in pouches. Predestined for e-commerce applications, such as on the fully automatic Logi Wrap Paper packaging machine with automatic bag size adjustment.
Packaging papers can be recycled directly via waste paper
“There will be areas of application in the future where papers will be used as alternatives and can take over certain packaging tasks where films are not absolutely necessary,” Jens Kallfass shared. “In order to be able to offer our customers paper as an alternative packaging material as well, we are using our many years of experience to further develop the young packaging materials and our established packaging machines. According to our motto: The result counts,” the CEO continued. He added: “Fortunately, we have already received the first concrete inquiries about paper packaging.”
