Scanfill has announced that it has invested in a brand-new foil extruder, giving the company even more opportunities to produce efficient and recyclable material. Scanfill manufactures environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging material, based on renewable raw materials.
Seven-layer Structure Materials Now Possible
“Now we can produce up to seven-layer structure materials with five extruders, tailored to meet customer's unique requirements. This new technology enables us to meet the increasingly stringent demands that the marketplaces on the packaging industry,” explains Pontus Björklund, technical manager at Scanfill AB.
Producing Recyclable Barrier Materials
“The new line gives us the capacity to produce barrier materials that are recyclable and have adaptable sealing properties. This allows us to customize the foil even more specifically to the customer's requirements and minimize the resources required. The fact that the machine is both flexible and physically wider, opens opportunities to work with new industries, such as electronics and construction,” said Björklund.
New Line to Use Recycled Material Efficiently
“With the new line, we will be able to use recycled material more efficiently by being able to build layered structures that allow the foil’s core to be produced from recycled material,” says Oscar Hugoson, vice president at Scanfill.
“Scanfill AB continues to grow in Northern Europe, just this year we have ventured into new markets, like Germany, Slovakia and Poland,” says Oscar Hugoson, vice president.
“We see a growing interest in our products, and we welcome the discussion on a sustainable future. For us, it is a matter of course to take care of the earth's resources, and we work consciously to make our products have as little impact on the environment as possible, which is why sustainable packaging material for us is the logical outcome," says Hugoson.
