Join the Packaging Europe team's rolling coverage as we unpack the key news and developments ahead of this year's FachPack conference, which takes place from the 28th-30th September.'

27th September


IMA Group’s new tamper-evident butter packaging solution, the FoldWrap 1800, will be on show at FachPack 2021.

The completely new packaging style is made achievable by IMA Benhill’s FW1800 moulding, wrapping and sealing machine for pasty products. The machine is able to cold-seal the packages, a feature that aims to ensure improved hygiene and conserves fragrance, taste, and colour in the packed product. The company also says that the new solution can prolong the shelf life of the product it contains.

Benhil has also developed a solution that allows the pack to be easily opened. Thanks to the package’s lateral flaps, the consumer can open it by pulling only the flaps without touching the contents.

“Packaging solutions for the future” will be the theme at FachPack 2021 for Korozo.

At Hall 7, Stand 513, the company will display its latest innovations, with KORORCY, its development program for recycle-ready flexible packaging, at the centre.

KORORCY is a pioneering extrusion technology that reportedly enables the replacement of traditional substrates such as PET and OPA without losing product performance. 

Korozo’s lidding solutions for a variety of meat and cheese products will also feature.  KOROGPEEL seeks to enable easy peel and reclose for increasingly popular mono-APET trays, while our Sustainability Awards finalist “New Peel” offers a recyclable, high gloss, low haze, peelable lidding for PP trays.

The ROTZINGER Group’s presence at this year’s show will be focused on solutions for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and food industries.

First up is the company’s new continuously operating linear filling machine FLK with rotary capping machine VRM. Combined with the new Wyzo high-speed pick & place technology and the CUT cartoning machine, ROTZINGER says that the line stands for flexibility, compactness, hygiene, and efficiency.

Meanwhile, the Eco Save Pack is a paper-based packaging solution for vials, cartridges, syringes, and ampoules, which was developed in cooperation with Faller Packaging.

Also on show will be the CUT 1405 cartoning machine which aims to offer customer benefits through its integrated servo technology, modularity, and ease of operation, which reportedly ensure simple and fast format changeover.



Under the motto "Together ahead for responsible packaging", NYCO Flexible Packaging will be presenting its latest solutions at Fachpack in Hall 7, Stand 353.

The company’s PP High Barrier Film is a closure film made of polypropylene (PP), which is nearly 100% recyclable in combination with a PP container, according to the cyclos-HTP institute.

NYCO will also demonstrate a 20 μm PET sleeve. The sleeve has been designed for use with high-speed machines in the sleeve process, and can reportedly maintain flexible sleeve shape variability.

The NYCO PO-Shrink Sleeve, a low-density heat-shrinkable polyolefin film, will also be showcased. During the sorting process, the PO film rises to the surface thanks to its low density, while the PET container sinks, with the objective of facilitating cleaner recycling.

Last up is the company’s multifunctional lid with a reclosure function and high convenience benefits, which aims to replace commercially-available blank and conventional outer terminal lids.
