Tech up & cost down
motion plastics for the
general packaging industry

Safety, precision, short throughput times – these are the main requirements for machines and equipment in the packaging industry. To enable you to place your trust in safe and reliable components, we supply polymer solutions that have been specially developed for moving applications.
 
Whether in forming, filling, weighing and sealing machines, in bag forming or pharmaceutical packaging machines or in strapping machines and dosing systems – we offer machine components that work without any external lubrication and meet the strict requirements for food hygiene and food safety.
