Compostable film first at Empack event
The latest in sustainable packaging materials – compostable shrink film – will be on show at this year’s Empack event! YPS will be demonstrating the film on our stand – D50 – showing the excellent finish achievable, as sample products are wrapped live.
The compostable film will be teamed up with an l-sealer for a high-gloss finish and strong seal, ideal for display packaging. It’s the first time event visitors have had the chance to see both this film and this machine from YPS.
“We can’t wait to show visitors this innovative, green packaging development. The finish we can achieve with this film proves that there’s no need to compromise on quality when you’re pursuing sustainable goals,” stated YPS MD, Glyn Johnson.
The European-made compostable film is available from 12 - 38 microns, with excellent tensile strength and a bright, highly transparent finish.
This sustainable innovation joins a wealth of green film options from YPS, as our materials range is the widest in the market. All films we offer are recyclable, many are available with recycled content of 30% or more and our range even includes both bio-based material and food-contact approved recycled-content specifications.
Demonstrating how the compostable film is handled, it will be running on an exclusive l-sealer machine. This equipment is fully automatic and can achieve professional display-standard wrapping at speed. Designed for the operator’s ease, it features an enlarged infeed belt for loading, front and rear opening for improved access and simple, graphics-based controls.
And there’s more…
Our stand will also feature not one, but two, other examples of leading packaging equipment from our comprehensive portfolio of equipment.
To complement the l-sealer, YPS will also show a twin-lane side-feed sleeve wrapper, designed for transit packaging applications. Flexibility is key for this machine, creating multiple collations, including trayed and trayless, with fast changeover routines.
Last but not least, the shrink wrapping equipment will be joined by a market-leading bagging machine, representing our e-commerce and mailing fulfilment machinery offering. This machine takes the crown as the widest autobagger on the market. It’s also the only hybrid bagging machine available, able to use both paper and plastic materials.
