Consumers today are demanding their brands of choice be more responsible and better stewards of the environment. This extends to their packaging as well. So, what can flexible packaging machine manufacturers do to help customers meet their sustainability goals? As it turns out, quite a lot!
Did you know that Matrix Packaging Machinery builds packaging machines that can run “green” films? Green films are those that are considered sustainable, compostable or recyclable. Many film manufacturers are getting really good at creating structures that provide the needed safety, durability, as well as designable and attractive options that packagers want.
When looking for equipment, it’s helpful if your flexible packaging suppliers work closely with its customers to provide packaging systems that can accomplish their sustainability goals. There are considerations in addition to packaging, such as footprint, energy output, and film waste during changeover, as well as film structures.
“Matrix has always worked proactively to make sure the footprint of our machines is small. This works well to help save our customers space on the facility floor and cuts down on film and waste during change-over. We actively work with our customers whenever we can to help them meet their sustainability aspirations.”
Marc Wolf, General Manager of Matrix Packaging Machinery
Some of the more recent trends of sustainable packaging include the demand for on-the-go convenience, food safety, less product waste and reusable bags/pouches. The Matrix Morpheus vertical form fill seal machine, for one, can run compostable and recycled films efficiently. Our machinery also has a smaller footprint and AutoPro™ programming technology that aids in reducing waste and excess bags during changeovers by up to 50%. These features, along with many others, allow Matrix to help its customers to work on achieving their sustainability goals with their target audiences.
