Department: Deep-drawn Packaging
In the packaging industry, deep-drawn packaging has become indispensable, as manufacturing companies must reduce the number of particles during shipping due to increasing cleanliness requirements. As a result, the previously customary packaging of bulk goods in cardboard boxes is hardly possible anymore.
Deep-drawn packages are a perfect fit and space-optimised. They protect components from transport-related shocks as well as damage and enable more efficient removal of packaged goods than previous solutions. Deep-drawn packaging can be used for both manual and automated loading. The counting process is also simplified by pre-defined compartments, thus considerably simplifying logistics.
In deep drawing, also known as vacuum forming or thermoforming, various plastics are first heated and then formed using a tool. The resulting deep-drawing inserts (trays) are used, for example, in the automotive or medical industries as well as many other sectors. The biggest advantage of deep drawing compared to injection moulding are the considerably lower tooling costs and the possibility of producing both small and large series.
We offer our customers both individualised and standardised packaging solutions and can also produce small quantities from a minimum order quantity of 200 pieces. Since the founding of our company, we have built up a considerable stock of tools for standardised packaging from which our customers can gladly choose.
Of course, we also offer individualised solutions that are precisely tailored to the processing requirements and goods of our customers. Over the years, we have built up a considerable expertise that is unique in the industry, especially in the border areas of deep drawing. This enables us to offer our customers thermoforming packaging solutions where other companies would already recommend the production via injection moulding.
Depending on the requirements of our customers, we process various types of plastics (ABS, ABS-TPU, PS, PS/PE, PET, PVC and PE) for thermoforming. Depending on the customer’s requirements, we use virgin material or recycled plastics (regenerates) as well as antistatic (ESD) plastics. We process roll material in thicknesses of 0.3 – 2.5 mm and sheet material in thicknesses of 2.0 – 12.0 mm.
