A wide range of packaging options for your product
As a company specialising in packaging technology, we would like to present you with an excerpt of selected packaging and labelling options that can be realised with our machines and systems. In addition to pure, particularly sustainable net and pouch packaging, we also offer solutions for packaging in buckets, cartons and trays. Furthermore, components for labelling can be integrated into the machines, so that we can present you with holistic solutions.
SUSTAINABLE NET PACKAGING
The sustainability of packaging materials is increasingly becoming the focus of many companies and consumers — not least due to the pollution of the world’s oceans by waste carpets of plastic, which degrades into microplastics over many years and enters the cycle of many organisms. As a specialised company for packaging technology, it has always been important to us to offer custom-fit solutions with our machines, with which packaging can be designed in a more resource-friendly way. With the implementation of ultrasonic technology in netting machines, we at Gekupack® succeeded in taking a much-appreciated step in this direction as early as 1994. Since then, we have continuously developed our machines and the technologies we use and, as the market leader in this segment, we can now offer our customers a wide range of net packaging machines for various product areas from the food and non-food sectors.
Stand-up pouches and other pouch types are currently enjoying increasing popularity, and not without good reason. The variety of bag types, materials and available size combinations make them suitable for countless products. They offer good protection against external influences such as moisture or dirt and have a large surface area for designs and packaging information. As a specialist for packaging machines with more than 30 years of experience in the field of packaging technology, our portfolio naturally also includes filling and sealing machines for various pouch types in addition to our net machines and numerous other machines for counting or weighing products. The most common bag types include stand-up bags, pressure seal bags, gusseted bags, block-bottom bags, flat bags and tubular bags. Packaging can be produced in a wide range of sizes — from small bags with a few dog snacks to larger feed bags with carrying handles.
In addition to various types of bags and net packaging, we also offer further solutions for other types of packaging such as trays, buckets or cardboard boxes. For example, we have responded to the multiple demands of our long-standing customers and developed a depositing machine with which chunky goods, such as fat balls or onions, are automatically counted and portioned into trays. We also have semi- and fully-automated solutions for bucket or carton packaging that include dosing and filling as well as sealing.
Labels fulfil a wide variety of purposes and are available in countless variations for the most diverse areas of application. In addition to packaging instructions and product information in accordance with legal requirements, labels offer the possibility of branding products and applying individual designs or sales-promoting product information. The diversity of packaging types requires a wide variety of label types — for buckets, cartons and net packaging, for example. Various types of labels are compatible with our machines; the most common types of labelling include stand-up labels or wine glass labels in a wide variety of designs, as well as labels from weld to weld as a banderole for net packaging, and adhesive labels for tubular bags, buckets and cartons.
