LC Packaging wants to contribute to a world without waste. To do so, a company must work closely together with its production partners. One of LC Packaging’s long-term production partners in plastic packaging has now achieved a significant weight reduction of up to 5% for LC Packaging’s labelled and baxmatic net bags.
The reduction was achieved by investments in new machinery that allowed for the purchase of a new laminator which applies the labels and baxmatic top to the bags during the production process. With this new laminator, the same high quality can be achieved using less material. This causes the total weight of the bag to decrease. Depending on the size of the bags, a reduction of 1 – 4 grams can be achieved: a 3% - 5% decrease.
The laminator has been installed some time ago and has passed all quality tests. The old laminator is going to be phased out, meaning all bags from now on will be lighter weight. The upgrade is part of a series of investments over the past years aimed at further automising the production process and increasing production capacity. In the upcoming months, two additional automatic cutting machines will be installed to further scale down manual work.
