AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2018 FOOD & BEVERAGE ASIA FIRST LOOK 55 Multivac Packaging Concepts with Paper Fibre Based Materials SAFE. ROBUST. ULTRA-COMPACT. Cobotic Palletizing to transform working conditions Much more than a cobot, CoboAccess™_Pal is an advanced industrial fenceless cobotic palletizing solution, meeting perfectly the needs of low speed lines. The reduction of the consumption of packaging and the use of recyclable materials in the production of packaging are currently at the top of the agenda in the packaging industry and among consumers. In the near future, the demand for recyclable packaging in particular will increase s i g n i f i c a n t l y . W i t h MULTIVAC PaperBoard, MULTIVAC, as one of the leaders in the market and technology, o ̫ ers a variety of solutions for the production of packaging based on paper fibre that fully meet the requirements of recyclability. MULTIVAC works with leading manufacturers on suitable packaging materials that can be processed in standard systems. The thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers can be individually c u s t o m i s e d f o r t h e r e s p e c t i v e p e r f o r m a n c e requ i remen t s o f the customers. They accordingly offer real added value in terms of package quality, output and process reliability. For example, both MAP and skin packs made from paper ̬bre based materials can be implemented on the MULTIVAC systems. The backing material can be processed either as a roll or as a cut sheet; in addition, prefabricated trays can be used. All the materials can be separated into their respective parts by the end user and the paper backing sent for recycling. The use of functional layers makes it possible to produce paper-based packs that meet the barrier property requirements of plastic composites. Either the paper backing or the entire paper composite can be sent for recycling; in this regard, countries have di ̫ erent regulations that need to be observed. Another advantage of paper backings is their wide design range for purposes of printing. This contributes signi̬cantly to di ̫ erentiation at the point of sale. Product data can also be displayed on the paper backing so that large labels can be dispensed with. Ŷ
