Precision in seven layers

Worldwide, up to 2.5 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day. Much of this is prepared from coffee powder capsule portions in coffee machines. Due to the necessary oxygen barrier to prevent ageing of the coffee due to oxidation, these capsule portions consist of either aluminium or a plastic composite foil with an integrated oxygen barrier. Since 2015, the latter have been produced by the “Greiner Packaging” in Kremsmünster, Austria. For this purpose, a sustainable production concept was developed together with the peripheral equipment manufacturer motan and the Austrian agent Luger. With this concept, the punching waste left over after punching out the deep-drawn capsule bodies is completely fed back into the 7 layer extrusion line in accordance with all quality limits.

Plastics packaging, especially for food, is a future trend and food packaging already accounts for more than a third of the global packaging market.
