packaging & beyond
At Westfall Technik, packaging means fast cycle times, high cavitation, and high output. It also represents a high degree of individuality with low order quantities and the ability to frequently change color and labeling. Here too we actively seek out ways to go beyond the standard.
For long shelf life products in the food industry, our team of experts is working intensively on barrier solutions. We are doing the same for high runs and with full automation, as would be required for coffee capsules, for instance. The results are very promising and we see great potential, especially in terms of the physical coating in the co-injection process using EVOH copolymers. Plasma coating is done in the nano thickness range and is absolutely harmless in terms of health. It is also 100 % recyclable. These advantages are of particular benefit in the highly regulated food industry as many of the commercial products with a PP-EVOH-PP structure may not be recyclable and guarantee greater durability only in certain cases.
We produce long runs of thin-walled IML containers with lids, dispensing containers or closures as well as smaller batch sizes and individual packaging. For example, high-quality IML cosmetics tubes at our facility come out of the injection-molding machine finished and ready to fill.
