Both firms will work together to develop sustainable and flexible packaging solutions for the food and non-food sector
Bielefeld-based speciality paper manufacturer Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has partnered with Wipperfürth-based pouch packaging machines maker SN Maschinenbau to offer paper-based packaging solutions.
Both firms will work together to develop sustainable and flexible packaging solutions for the food and non-food sector.
Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has provided barricote, an advanced line of recyclable barrier sheets for flexible packaging of food and non-food for many years.
SN Maschinenbau is known for its top-notch horizontal form, fill, and seal (HFFS) equipment for a variety of items, particularly food.
After extensive testing and close collaboration, the two businesses have now established that films and water-coated barricote papers can be processed on SN Maschinenbau pouch packing machines with equal reliability.
This avoids the need for pricey machine technology upgrades, said Mitsubishi.
SN Maschinenbau Development & Global Accounts director business Reiner Müller said: “As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of horizontally operating pouch packaging machines, we are delighted with the excellent cooperation with Mitsubishi HiTec Paper and the positive test results.
“This proves once again that a large part of today’s sustainable mono packaging materials can be processed reliably without extensive adaptation of the machine technology.
“Furthermore, together with Mitsubishi HiTec Paper, we offer a solution for the increasing demand for paper packaging in the market.”
