We put your product first and rethink product design and functionality, material and composition towards a more sustainable product. Depending on that we adapt the manufacturing process and optimize machines and tools for your production. Your sustainable product can be recycled easier and together we are closing the loop.
You choose whether you want to use classic recyclable plastics like rPET, bio-based materials like PLA or even natural fibers.
End consumers demand sustainable and green packaging. Kiefel offers the right machine solutions for this - thermoforming with natural fibers - Kiefel Fiber Thermoforming. With our NATUREFORMER KFT 90 - now available in the "Advanced Version" - you can produce your sustainable packaging product from natural fibers.
For customers who already own a KFT 90, these innovative functions are also available as an "Advanced Upgrade".
Paper and cardboard – dissolved in a water bath – create the raw material, known as pulp. Through application of pressure most of the water is removed and the wet basic form is created.
In the next step, the remaining moisture is removed and the basic form is dried by applying high pressure and temperature. The combination of the applied heat and pressure results in a very robust material for high-quality and dimensional stable packaging.
Alternatively, virgin fibers (unprocessed cellulose) can be used to comply with the regulations in the food industry for packaging solutions made from paper.
