Innovative formed packaging production
Variovac has launched their latest range of machines. “There is a political topic right now about plastic forming of packaging in the food industry, so we sought an exclusive form based on just paper,” says Daniel Reimer at Variovac. “We are able on our Primus machines to form real paper with a plastic layer to make it suitable for food, processed meat applications and gives us a perfectly formed packaging that is perfect for organic and high premium products. This machine does not just create a perfect pack but is also one of the fastest on the market, with beautiful cutting. It is very powerful and we have a narrow edge (5mm), which means that we are saving on materials on each side. The packaging is quite shallow formed and allows you to present products such as Parma ham as a premium product.
