Paper Tray Solutions

The Marchesini Group provided a close-up view of a number of machines and lines able to package products with different types of materials, including paper, recyclable and recycled mono-material plastics, and aluminum.

On exhibit was a machine designed to carton vials in paper trays. This solution was presented together with a new-design paper tray (shown), which generates savings of approximately 50% in paper and about 50% in glue, compared to the models currently on the market. The new paper tray is less thick, providing space savings of 30% when products are combined inside the case.

Also in the sustainability area was a complete line for blister products, an integrated, robotized solution that inserts tablets in a packaging consisting of 75% PVC-free aluminum and then in a cardboard carton. The line is completed by a monobloc, comprising a case packer and a palletizer equipped with a robot.

Apart from the all-aluminum primary packaging, this line’s key feature is the inclusion of track and trace technology by SEA Vision. From blister serialization through to pallet aggregation, the line is a single solution that protects brands and safeguards products from counterfeiting.

Also on display was a thermoforming machine for forming mono-material trays in PET recycled material designed to take vials, and a line comprising a Schmucker 12-lane stick packaging machine, a stick inspection system, and a cartoner. The line is designed to process PP-based packaging materials (with and without PE), such as 100% recyclable mono-material plastics like OPP or BOPP with a metallized intermediate layer.

Also shown was a new machine that uses only cardboard as packaging material and can serve as a packer for small-sized cases, eliminating the need for plastic bundles, or as a cartoner for large sizes.
