Innovative system for tailor-made shaped paper pods

With the TPU paper form, fill and seal machine from Syntegon Technology, formerly Bosch Packaging Technology, and the BillerudKorsnäs 3D formable FibreForm paper, a new solution is born. Shaped paper pods is a packaging system for uniquely shaped and right-sized packaging, with a tactile feeling reflecting the brand and product content. The new sustainable solution is ideal for product samples, inserts, refills, portion packs and disposable packaging with high environmental requirements.

The packaging system is ideal for individual portion packs and products that would usually be packed in blisters. Shaped paper pods can be used to package e.g. dry, chunky or viscous food thanks to a thin barrier layer. Be it spreads, margarine, biscuits or Advent calendars in paper trays – the TPU paper forming machine offers manufacturers a range of filling and sealing systems for sustainable packaging at an output of up to 15,000 pieces per hour.

The new system forms the shaped paper pods environmentally friendly by means of air pressure and press force. Using heat-sealing technology, the pods can be sealed with any heat-sealable lidding materials. Barriers will be completely customized to customer needs.
