Recyclable packaging is ready for the market!

In recent years, Mespack has been focused on developing equipment to produce recyclable flexible packaging. This has been accomplished together with film, paper, and spout producers, as well as customers with challenging recyclable projects.

We have been making progress regarding the manner in which the incorporation of Elmedur sealing jaws, a bottom jaw cooling with a triple point pointer, air cooling on the sealing station, a pre-heating system for the spout applicator, or a servo-driven cutting knife, can assist customers in using sustainable materials. Through a retrofit, the machinery of our customers can be adapted with all of these innovative solutions, which  can also be applied to any new machines.

This new equipment is compatible with the current trends in sustainable materials, such as Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic, paper or aluminum. Furthermore, the equipment assesses the behavior and recyclability of these materials. Moreover, Mespack machinery is equipped to operate with paper as well as produce a wide variety of packaging formats, such as stick packs, sachets, stand-up pouches, and or even water-soluble pods, which are composed of biodegradable film.

The aforementioned sustainable novelties have already been introduced to the global flexible packaging market with satisfactory results from our customers. Specifically, we are currently performing material trials at the Mespack Innovation Centre in Barcelona for the largest cheese packing company in Unites States.

After the foundation of open innovation, we joined forces with key partners of the flexible packaging sector, in order to develop challenging projects and achieve sustainable goals. The most recent state-of-the-art Mespack technology is available to FMCG brands for the use with new recyclable ready, recycled, biodegradable or compostable materials.

The principal strategies we follow at Mespack, in order to integrate sustainability into flexible packaging, include reducing raw material usage, replacing materials with sustainable solutions and adapting technology to sustainable materials.

At Mespack we are strongly committed to developing innovative equipment for sustainable packaging solutions in order to preserve the environment and assist you in the pursuit of your goals.

We recommend testing your film and learning more about our equipment, which is adapted to operate with sustainable materials. For inquiries regarding a customized demonstration at our Mespack Innovation Centre, please use the following link: https://mespack.com/sustainable-packaging-solutions/.

How the gas flush system can help you extend the shelf life of your product?

The Gas flush system is a solution that consistently injects nitrogen into packaging to minimize oxygen content, which contributes to the preservation of the product. It has various modalities according to the level of residual oxygen that remains in the packaging.

We have three gas flush systems to reduce residual oxygen:

  • The Basic System: Up to 7-10% of residual oxygen inside the pouch. This system consists of two nitrogen inlet points: one located in the filling area (in the funnel or nozzle/depending on the product) and a second inlet point located in the stretching area of the pouch.
  • The Intermediate System: Up to 3-5% of residual oxygen. This system consists of continuous nitrogen inlet points located inside the hopper, funnels and/or nozzles (depending on the product), filling area, and stretching area of the pouch.
  • The Total System: Up to 1%-2% of residual oxygen. This system consists of an electro-pneumatically controlled injection procedure/technique. The inert gas injection points are located in the hopper, funnels, filling area, and blowers that help open the pouch. In order to obtain such a low volume of residual oxygen, an almost hermetic filling area must be built.

Furthermore, the design and construction of the interior of the filling area eliminates dead angles, incorporates a suction system for recirculating dusty products, and minimizes the loss of gas to the maximum level. Additionally, the system uses materials with ultra-polished surfaces to facilitate cleaning.

Moreover and in accordance with the type of product, we use gas mixers and electronic flow controllers to inject the optimum amount of gas. We can also individually install the system into each station of the machine.

Our gas flush technology is ideal for the food industry, especially in reference to the packaging of sauces, nuts, coffee, cheese, cereals, baby food, milk powder, among others.

Why choose flexible packaging for your product?

As the result of a commitment to innovation, technology, and sustainability, the flexible packaging industry with its value chain actors, of which Mespack is leading company, has made flexible packaging, due to its many advantages, an increasingly popular choice.

First and foremost, flexible packaging makes both edible and non-edible products safer, more convenient, and more enjoyable. Furthermore, value is added, therefore increasing its marketability. Consequently, owing to the combination of the highest material quality, including that of plastic, film, paper, and aluminum foil, it possible to offer multiple protective properties using a minimum amount of material.

Flexible packaging pursues lightness without sacrificing strength, protection, and optimum sealing. Additionally, it makes a product more attractive on the shelf. The versatility and efficiency of flexible packaging, in regard to conserving resources, personalized qualities, and sustainability, make it the ideal option in response to the packaging requirements of a product, irregardless to which industry it belongs.

The following information explains more about the advantages of choosing flexible packaging, which:

Is more sustainable using less raw materials. You can save up to 70% of plastic by changing from rigid to flexible packaging.

Optimizes transport and space, as a result of being lightweight. The weight of various flexible packaged products can be reduced by 50%, consequently decreasing product shipping costs.

Packages a high volume of product with the least amount of packaging possible. To illustrate, 1.5 pounds of flexible packaging will package the same amount of beverage or liquid foods as 50 pounds of glass.

Extends product shelf life and maintain the freshness of your merchandise. As an illustration, the shelf life of cucumbers wrapped in flexible packaging is extended from three days to 14 days; bananas packaged in flexible packaging have a slow ripening process and a prolonged shelf life of up to 35 days

Generates less waste, due to an efficient product-to-package ratio. With an equivalent volume, the production of a flexible food pouch requires 75% less energy than that of a metal can.

Requires less water and energy to manufacture and transport, thus generating small quantities of greenhouse gases on route to the market

– Includes numerous closures and dispensing options for openings and resealings

– Offers highly eye-catching designs as a result of multiple customization options

Flexible packaging is at the forefront of packaging trends that are related to various product aspects, such as design and performance, protection, consumer convenience, and sustainability. Consequently, the environment, consumers, and businesses all benefit.
