  • Neenah Advances Medical Packaging Category with New Lightweight Reinforced Paper-Based Solution

    Neenah Advances Medical Packaging Category with New Lightweight Reinforced Paper-Based Solution

    News: 

    “This ultra-lightweight addition brings new opportunities closer in reach with our global sterile supply chain partners,” says Valerie Henderson, Medical Packaging Product Manager for Neenah.

    Single-use medical devices are gaining popularity as they help lower costs, increase efficiency, and reduce the spread of infection. Most single-use devices have a shelf life of 3-5 years, making it imperative that the sterilization process remain intact from supplier to opening at the final destination. Kraft-based medical packaging, used for single-use devices, can tear or burst due to packing or transportation style. It is essential that medical packaging be durable, especially if it is lightweight.

    The new ultra-lightweight 72 gsm (grams per square meter) grade joins Neenah’s medical packaging offering that currently includes lightweight 85 gsm and heavyweight 112 gsm options. The entire paper-based product line is manufactured using FSC controlled fibers, compliant with regulatory standards, and accepts steam and Ethylene Oxide (EO) sterilization methods. These products also deliver superior breathable barrier properties, plus excellent conformability and printability.

    “Recently, we’ve witnessed extreme and unprecedented growth in the wound care market. With this revolutionary, ultra-lightweight reinforced paper, Neenah is reacting in real-time to help our customers grow and embrace new opportunities. I’m excited to bring this innovative solution to the market,” says Jaime Zohrer, International Sales Development Manager for Neenah.

    Packaging and labelling fresh fruit and vegeta-bles sustainably

    Enger, 25 May 2021 - There is a new trend in the packaging of fruit and vegetables: Single-origin recyclable packs made of pa-perboard or cardboard are gradually replacing the typical plastic trays, which usually have an additional pillow pack, or are wrapped in stretch film or netting. MULTIVAC's full wrap labelling offers a sustainable and high-quality solution for plastic-free packaging concepts. It requires just one wraparound label to se-curely seal the packs and also provide the product presentation at the same time.

    SPOTLIGHT ON CROSS WEB LABELLING MACHINES: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

    News: 

    A cross web labelling machine is a popular choice for those who need high-speed, high accuracy labelling on thermoformed packaging. These types of labelling machines allow businesses to precisely apply labels on either the top or the bottom of thermoformed packages. Cross web labellers can work with many different kinds of labels, depending on your requirements, so you can choose a material and format that works for you. These machines can work with the HMI of the thermoforming packaging machinery for a full-service system, or can be mounted onto any type of thermoformer. Cross web advanced labelling machines meet all the requirements of the medical sector and the food industry, making them a popular choice for these businesses.

    Types Of Cross Web Labelling Machines

    There are various types of cross web labelling machines designed to suit a wide range of requirements. Whether you need labels for marketing purposes or for vital information such as date coding, bar codes or product information, a cross web labelling machine can help. Here are some of the most popular types of cross web labelling machinery:

    • KOCH Cross Web Labeller: This advanced labelling system offers 24 labelling programmes, dispensing speeds of up to 60 meters per minute, and +/- 0.5mm label printing accuracy. The KOCH Cross Web Labeller is perfect for labelling large runs or food or pharmaceutical products and can include added options such as empty pocket detection to eliminate the labelling of empty packages.
    • Matrix Cross Web Bottom Package Labeller: Specifically designed to mount onto any thermoformer packaging machine, this labeller automatically applies labels onto the bottom of the package after sealing. Using pressure sensitive labels, this machine can conform to almost any product contours and has been designed especially for wash down environments.
    • Matrix Cross Web Film Labeller: This labelling machine can be installed onto most fill / seal / roll stock machines and is perfect for applications where there is no space available after the sealing station. The Patented Open IP65 design allows water to drain away, and the labelling machine has been constructed from corrosion resistant materials.
    • Matrix Cross Web Top Package Labeller: Similarly to the Cross Web Bottom Package Labeller, this machine is designed to mount packaging machinery. The key difference is that this labelling machine will apply pressure sensitive labels to the bottom of a package after sealing.

    Benefits Of Cross Web Labelling Machines

    Many businesses and industries choose cross web labelling machines because of the many benefits they can bring. These advanced labelling systems are:

    • Easily integrated or mounted to existing packaging machinery.
    • Very hygienic, simple to clean and have water resistant design.
    • Quick to print labels on all types of packaging, and quick-release clamps allow fast roll changes.
    • Perfectly precise with label positioning and accuracy.
    • Super robust and durable with minimal maintenance and down time.
