New machinery and tooling developments for thermoformers debut at K.
Speed, versatility, control, and cost savings are keys to new thermoforming machines for packaging and industrial applications
Exhibitors at this year’s show introduced an assortment of new machines and upgraded models with designs incorporating the latest in mechanical, hydraulic, and electronic technologies.
Most of the developments will focus on in-line systems.
Continuous in-line packaging systems headed up the K 2010 thermoforming news as suppliers launched a range of roll-fed systems with greater capacity, more flexibility, and improved automation.
At K 2010, thermoformers will be greeted by numerous advances in inline machines for packaging.
When you’re a successful injection molder with more than 40 years under your belt and more than 50 presses producing 1.8 billion containers and lids for food-packaging containers annually, what do you do when you feel the time is right to expand?
For thermoforming of both heavy-gauge sheet and thin-gauge packaging, the show will present new machines with unusual flexibility, able to form a wide variety of products and materials.
Continuous in-line packaging systems will be the main emphasis in thermoforming at K 2007.
After several fits and starts over the last decade, thermoforming IML appears ready for prime time, thanks to improvements in output and labeling technology. For now, the action is mostly in European packaging.
