Pulp thermoforming machinery systems
Pulp thermoforming machinery systems for plastic-free packaging alternatives.
Utilising patented technology, Facteon's pulp thermoforming systems produce an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic packaging. Recycled pulp materials are pressed and dried to create a range of shapes and sizes. Thermoforming ensures a strong, dimensionally accurate product with low draft angles. Smooth surfaces allow for the application of branding directly to the thermoformed surface. Facteon is an industry leader in high pressure pulp thermoforming. Product accuracy is achieved through accurate tool alignment and sophisticated temperature management systems. Utilising automated, flexible tool change systems, your pulp thermoforming machine can operate around the clock with minimal human intervention.
Pulp thermoforming systems
The M100 is suited to large-scale operations with high output, producing 35 to 200 million products per year. The press forming tonnage is rated at 150 tonnes, with cycle time of approximately 30 seconds, depending on product design.
The M30 is suited to small to medium-sized operations producing in the range of 6 to 20 million products per year. The press forming tonnage is rated at 30 tonnes, offering approximately 30 second cycle time output.
The M8 is suitable for a smaller-scale production. This machine is perfect as a product development or lab machine, enabling parallel development and testing without disrupting your production schedule.
Tooling & Development
Tool design is an integral component of overall machine design and performance. Facteon can develop prototype tooling to verify the product in process prior to equipment build. This establishes process criteria, product viability and minimises project risk.
