Filling and packaging supplier KHS is offering more flexibility in their environment-friendly packaging solutions. The company is offering to retrofit its existing Innopack machines with modules that can accommodate its paper wrapper packaging. This allows clients to seamlessly switch between using film and paper, or shift towards using the latter permanently.
The paper wrapper packaging is an eco-friendly alternative to film that’s used to wrap beverage cans, meeting current consumer demands. For clients to utilise this in their operations, KHS will convert the machines by replacing two modules, including the shrink tunnel. Doing so will add a new function in the equipment, letting companies offer wrap-around packs, packs on trays or pads, and just a broad range of secondary packaging.
Shifting to paper wrappers through KHS’ solution involves a low cost of investment, and faster resumption of production. This makes it easy and smooth for companies to be more environment-friendly and sustainable.
“Paper wrappers are still a relatively new form of secondary packaging. With a view to future market development, lots of bottlers want to keep all their options open. I thus assume that the flexible combined machine will prove an extremely attractive proposition for our customers,” Uwe Bartholemy, head of Technical Support for Packaging at the KHS Service Division says.
