No more plastic – change of packaging for batteries

The manufacturer of batteries, primarily for the B2C business, changed its packaging already in the middle of the year for reasons of sustainability.  For this purpose, a machine designed for him was produced on a modular basis. Up to now, the batteries were presented in a sealed blister, i.e. a plastic film molding fixed to a printed cardboard back.

For the sake of the environment, the company switched to a cardboard packaging that is one hundred percent recyclable. The boxes have a push-in closure with an additional glue flap to guarantee a tamper-evident seal and allow the package content to be removed piece by piece. The output input is 850 products per minute and the output, depending on the format, is more than 200 folding cartons per minute, depending on the format.

Dienst Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH from Hochheim, Germany, manufacturer of high-quality packaging machines for the food and non-food industry, cooperates with companies and groups operating worldwide. With more than 30 years of high competence and experience, since 2011 Dienst has been part of the Polar-Mohr Group in Hofheim/Taunus, the world’s largest manufacturer of cutting and peripheral equipment in the printing industry.
