The KHS Group has added another environmentally-friendly system to its portfolio.
With its tried-and-tested Innopack Kisters tray packers the systems supplier now enables cans of food and beverage to be wrapped in paper.
Replace shrink film
The new technology can replace shrink film or wrap-around carton packaging for transportation or sale on packs of 12 or 24 cans in the high-capacity range of up to 90,000 cans per hour. Regarding stability the results are the same yet compared to cardboard costs are lower as less energy and fewer materials are used. In order to wrap cans in paper just a few adjustments are needed to the Innopack Kisters tray packer. This allows beverage producers to have the tray packers already in operation at their plants converted simply by adapting certain modules, making a full new investment unnecessary.
