Processing of flexible materials

We research and develop technologies for packing foods, cosmetics, medical products, and pharmaceuticals and for wrapping technical goods with flexible laminates.

We focus on thermal joining using hot contact, ultrasonic, and laser methods and thermoforming using self-developed heating and forming tools. Other key areas of work are the processing of web-shaped materials and the design of easy opening packaging systems.

Using test rigs we put new technologies into practice and simulate industrial packaging processes. We acquire process knowledge to enhance product safety and support customers with the selection of materials, processes, and process parameters and with the implementation of technologies in industrial plants.
