Live at interpack: Baumer Features Sustainable Packaging Solutions

This week at interpack, Baumer conducted live demonstrations of various gluing applications designed to improve the sustainability of packaging applications.

Visitors watched the XmeltBio in action as it applied bio-based adhesives and saw how the Xmelt applies low-temperature hot melts.

Another focus was intelligent solutions for securing pallets in end-of-line packaging using pressure-sensitive adhesive instead of shrink-wrap. These solutions reduce the consumption of plastic film, minimizing waste in logistics. The adhesive is sprayed onto the transport boxes, reliably securing each successive layer on a pallet. This method also eliminates a step in receiving: the shrink-wrap no longer has to be removed during depalletizing.

Baumer also showcased high-performance systems for applying pressure-sensitive adhesives in the production of e-commerce boxes. Developed specifically for this field of application, they offer high reliability and guarantee maximum application quality. They meet a very wide variety of demands, including exceptionally uniform gluing on heavy-duty corrugated board, paper-based lightweight packaging and mailers made of folding paperboard or micro-flute, while minimizing material consumption and transport volume.

Another product Baumer introduced was the electric Delta application head, developed for box closing applications. Until now, pneumatic application heads commonly were used for this process step.

Reducing energy consumption is another subject the company addressed. The more customers can reduce adhesive and plastic film consumption with the innovative equipment from Baumer, the less energy they use. The company’s equipment is very energy efficient to operate, meaning it also contributes to reducing energy consumption. The high performance and precision of its innovative gluing systems is another factor, because these high-end application heads can apply both defined dots and stitches of glue. In end-of-line applications for instance, these solutions from Baumer can lower glue consumption by 50% or more.
