Heavy Duty

We are the only company in Europe with a production process specifically dedicated to heavy duty products. The unique production technique can achieve material thicknesses of up to 6 mm, giving the pulp a very strong and rigid product that is capable of packing heavy loads of up to two tons.

Application:

  • Robust, heavy products
  • Strong protection during transport

Advantages:

  • Very large parts possible
  • Strongest protection

Dimensions:

  • Max: 2.000 x 1.200 x 230 mm
  • Thickness: 2.5 –6.0 mm

Process of production
heavy duty products

Step 1

This pulper is specifically designed for heavy mixes. In a first step, corrugated waste paper gets dissolved in water. The paper fibres defibrilate and are ready to rebond into a new shape.

Step 2

The forming tool submerges into the pulp. Vacuum sucks the water through a stainless steel mesh. The fibers accumulate on the shaped surface of the tool. After the molding process is complete, the tool lifts up again and moves on to the drying oven.

Step 3

The forming tool drops the product on the belt of a drying oven. The remaining water within the product gets evaporated. The fibers form an integral bond so no glue or other additives are needed to make the finished product. After drying the product gets packed and is ready to use.

Conventional

Our conventional production process is the best for choice for versatile and economic packaging solutions with a mid-range wall thickness. Using the most advanced production technologies worldwide, it is ideal for complex technical and protective packaging.

Application:

  • Technical and protective packaging
  • Packaging of complex geometries

Advantages:

  • Large variety of possible applications
  • Realisation of complex geometries
  • Products can be designed to run on fully automated robot lines

Dimensions:

  • Max: 2.000 x 1.200 x 230 mm
  • Thickness: 2.5 –6.0 mm

Step 2

The forming tool submerges into the pulp. Vacuum sucks the water through a stainless steel mesh. The fibers accumulate on the shaped surface of the tool. After the molding process is complete, the tool lifts up again. The product gets passed on to a transfer tool, which molds the backside of the pulp product.

Step 3

The transfer tool drops the product on the belt of a drying oven. The remaining water within the product gets evaporated. The fibers form an integral bond so no glue or other additives are needed to make the finished product. After drying the product gets packed and is ready to use.

High end finish

The high end finish production process is chosen for products that require very precise geometries and where the end user experience plays an important role. There are two production processes possible to create a high end finish: The first option is to after press conventionally made pulp products in a heated tool. This called post press method.

A second option is to dry the wet formed products directly in heated tools in line automatically producing super high quality smooth and precise finish. This process is called thermoforming method. We realize both production processes in our factories and advise our customers which process is best for a specific application.

 

Application:

  • Technical packaging
  • Design packaging

Advantages:

  • Very precise geometries possible
  • Products are smooth on both sides
  • Perfect customer experience
  • Precise embossing possible

Dimensions:

  • Max: 800 x 800 x 200 mm
  • Thickness: 0.7 – 2 mm

Process of production
high end finished products

A) After Pressing

The dry product comes out of the conventional process.

The product is placed onto a press tool – the top tool closes and the product is pressed at ca. 200 degrees. After ca. 2-3 seconds, the tool opens again and the finised good is ready.

B) Thermoforming

The molding process is the same as in conventional molding. However, instead of placing the wet product into the dryer, the product gets placed onto a hot press tool and is directly dried within the tool. With this process, the highest quality and best surface texture is achieved.
