New GN800 high-speed form/cut/stack thermoformer at NPE2018

News 20.03.2018

GN Thermoforming Equipment will showcase its new GN800 Thermoformer for the first time in North America at the upcoming NPE2018 May 7-11 at the Orlando County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. 

Following a highly successful launch at K2016 in Dusseldorf, GN will highlight the unique capabilities of the GN800 Thermoformer at the largest plastics trade show event in the U.S.

The GN800 offers many standard features to ensure manufacturers' needs are met in today's changing marketplace. These include such benefits as forming capability of 5-in above and below the sheet line, in-mold-cut capability, auto-grease, heavy-duty bearings in the toggle system, and high-efficiency SOLAR heaters.

Among the top priorities of GN's approach are improving productivity and ensuring that customers produce the most finished parts per pound of sheet. Over the years, GN has perfected common-edge-cut tooling technology for their contact-heat series of thermoformers. Common-edge tooling offers the ability to form a series of square or rectangular trays in a row or multiple rows while eliminating all web between the edges of the products.

Among their sustainability goals, Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies are looking to their suppliers to reduce packaging weight. The GN800 is designed to work with minimal thicknesses of plastic materials and in combination with the common-edge system, it significantly increases finished part output per pound (kilo) of material.

At NPE2018, the company will demonstrate a common-edge-cut tool that was developed for the GN800 thermoformer in collaboration with Gravolab, a toolmaker from Romania. GN will run a meat tray in PET/PE laminate with a 12-cavity mold while maintaining a reduced scrap rate of 18%, said Jerome Romkey, GN's Business Development Manager.
