Innovative Heating and Sealing Systems Needed on Packaging Machinery to Process Sustainable Materials
Sustainability is one of the biggest drivers for innovation in the packaging industry. Many brand owners have announced ambitious sustainability goals to produce 100% recyclable or reusable packages by 2025. These objectives have led to a rethinking of current packaging solutions. Different materials and material structures will need to be adopted and along with them new packaging technologies. Mono materials are the most obvious solution as they are readily available.
This can cause complications as such materials have a very small processing window which are not available on much of the existing processing equipment. The result is high waste and significantly increased downtime. This is particularly true in critical sealing areas such as zipper location, double fold areas of a pouch or the critical sealing areas near spouts.
These deficiencies of the current heating systems can be solved with the help of the patented new category of heating systems, introduced by Watttron, and called cera2seal.
