Customised solutions for environmental packaging
GFM develops machinery for the manufacture of sustainable product packaging.
Unique “Made in Germany” technology for paper packaging solutions
Whether you are a manufacturer looking for ways to package your products in the most environmentally friendly way, or a packaging manufacturer looking to expand your product range with sustainable packaging solutions: GFM offers a unique new technical solution to those who no longer want to use plastic. GFM’s knurling machines join paper layers and seal flat bags or paper packaging for small parts. Our embossing machines, specially developed for your requirements, can be seamlessly integrated into your existing production line.
Using the unique technology GFM has developed, you can avoid plastics and reduce adhesive use to a large extent – or even do without it completely! It stands to reason that plastics will be banned as outer packaging by law in the near future. Already, we are your experienced partner for alternative recyclable packaging solutions.
Benefit from our experience in building packaging machinery
As simple as the concept is, it requires considerable experience and expertise to implement in practice: in recent decades, we at GFM have already realised more than 1,000 projects on behalf of and with our customers. Take advantage of our know-how for your product development. Together we will develop a customised, holistic machinery solution that is optimally integrated into your manufacturing processes.
The proven processing concept
You’re familiar with it from coffee filters: several layers of paper are held together by an embossing – the so-called “knurl”. This is created by passing the material between two embossing rollers. In the process, the paper fibres interlock, creating a bond that is usually even more tensile than simple adhesion. You thus save on the cost of adhesives and protect the environment at the same time. This principle can be transferred to many areas of application and harnessed for environmental packaging.
Industries & Applications
Can be used practically everywhere: GFM knurling machines can be used, for instance, in the production of packaging for industry, medicine, hygiene and gastronomy. Wherever small parts need to be packaged, plastic packaging needs to be avoided, paper needs to be joined and further processed, GFM machinery is in action. We also develop optimal solutions for your customers and your special requirements. Ask us!
