THE 100 PERCENT SOLUTION
„We are convinced that Optima has the great expert knowledge needed to transfer what we have learned to the paper packaging sector.“Torsten Bahl, Member of the Management Board, Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG
There are countless varieties of toilet paper on the shelves, but when it comes to the packaging, the buyer does not have much choice. It always comes securely packed in a plastic film bag, so the toilet paper can be carried home easily and quickly. But are there other options for sustainable packaging alternatives? Yes. Paper packaging is in the starting blocks. Optima has just the right machine for this purpose. The close cooperation between Fripa and Optima has resulted in a completely customized machine solution based on the OPTIMA OSR bag packaging machine. The common challenges with paper have already been solved. The modules can be modified with precision so that they work very accurately and handle the material gently. A new sealing mechanism was developed for better handling. Further optimizations are currently being developed to ensure the best results are actually achieved, both from an environmental and an economic standpoint.
INTERVIEW WITH: Torsten Bahl Management Board,
Fripa Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG
- At Optima, 100 percent solutions are the aim. In other words, completely recyclable materials.
- A possible alternative: paper. The machines need to work accurately to achieve at least consistent quality.
- However, a complete solution purely with paper is still possible. The machine solution from Optima can even do both: film and paper.
- The conversion takes no longer than a normal format change.
