On 11 October 2016 Synerlink and Coveris co-hosted an Innovation Day at Synerlink headquarter in France. The turnout was high and visitors participated in a highly anticipated demonstration of the thermoforming of Coveris NEOCELL®PP+ sheet on a Arcil A7 FFS machine.
The NEOCELL®PP+ technology is a groundbreaking PS-free packaging solution for all kinds of Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) applications in the dairy industry. The PP material, a thermoplastic polymer, guarantees the same output and efficiency as PS but assures even higher mechanical and heat resistant properties, as well as better stress cracking durability (well adapted for fat dairy products).
“We are pleased to see the interest in NEOCELL®PP+ sheet thermoforming process and to demonstrate the ease with which our customers can run the material in their lines,” said Olivier Laigre of Coveris.
“As an innovative packaging company, providing demonstrations on our machines is an important part of keeping our clients informed of developments,” said Jean-Albert Larmaraud of Synerlink S.A.
Together, Coveris and Arcil teams proved the capabilities of NEOCELL®PP+ sheet technology, including the feasibility of thermoforming of the sheets on a standard FFS machine. ) Visitors (Nestlé, Danone, Alpro and other major actors in the dairy industry) appreciated the dedication of the two companies and the invitation to experience the production process firsthand.
