Meurer Verpackungssysteme GmbH at the interpack: Maximum Added Value for End Of Line Packaging Solutions


Meurer Verpackungssysteme GmbH at interpack 2017:
with a scalable 5-in-1 system for innovative shelf ready packaging concepts and efficiency on the entire line

 Fürstenau, 28.03.2017 – Meurer Verpackungssysteme GmbH stands for developing and manufacturing high quality systems for the end-of-line packaging market. At interpack 2017 in Hall 15 Stand A21 from 4 to 10 May, the company is presenting innovative packaging solutions in the case and film segment and in combined procedures that ensure more efficient use of resources under the motto “Experience the Future of Scalability“. The highlight of Meurer’s stand will be a 5-in-1 system for case and foil packaging on which the manufacturing of particularly efficient shelf ready packaging concepts will be shown live. The basic system on display is equipped with a CM/HTW high performance tray and wrap-around case packer combined with a film bander CM/FL 600 FILMline.

CM/HTW high performance tray and wrap-around packer – efficient case packing
The CM/HTW high-performance tray and wrap-around case packer packs the most varied products in either low and product-high trays as well as wrap-around cases. The blanks are formed around the product in a continuous process and then hot-glued. The one-piece wrap-around tray blank means material is used particularly sparingly. The packaging created by the high-performance system ensures best product protection by making a complete carton shell and features excellent stability and stackability. They will win customers over at the Point of Sale with outstanding shelf ready characteristics. Due to the optimal arrangement of perforations and optimal thickness of the carton the packaging can be both opened easily and the tray separated from the case shell in a short time. Clear labelling on the case explains how to use it. Dimensions tailored precisely to retail shelves make shelf stacking easy and the products can be put away quickly. The CM/HTW tray and wrap-around packer with an output of up to 60 trays a minute is controlled via a user-friendly touch panel. The machine combination features rapid format conversion – from the conventional to the fully automatic solution. The well-thought out Hygienic Design feature makes cleaning and maintenance easier. The case packer can be integrated into existing lines without any problems.

CM/FL 600 FILMline – flexible film packaging using stretch or stretch banding procedure
Modern film packaging, produced on the CM/FL 600 FILMline sleeve wrapper from Meurer, makes single packaging transportable. The modular system of the latest generation offers maximum flexibility for many different uses. The basic module with film widths from up to 600 mm and up to 800 mm and other optional widths is supplemented by any functional module desired. This flexible concept allows the machine to be easily integrated in existing packaging lines and it can be set up and re-equipped for future requirements without problems at any time. The use of state-of-the-art servo technology ensures the highest energy efficiency and precision. With the film packaging machine CM/FL 600 FILMline presented at interpack products can be packed particularly tightly with material efficiency using a stretch procedure or film shrinking with edge-wrapping. The advantage of a pure stretch process is that all the energy necessary in a shrink procedure can be saved. In contrast to conventional processes, with the CM/FL 600 FILMline no shrink tunnel is necessary and this is replaced with intermittent heating and shrink-wrapping of the film. Which is why when using stretch banding, material usage and energy consumption can be significantly reduced.

Shelf ready packaging concepts that win friends in retail
The greatest flexibility in end packaging shown using the example of a cake cream folding box – which trade visitors can experience live on Meurer’s stand. With the modular system the end-of-line packing specialist is demonstrating how a folding box can be wrapped with wrap-around case as a 10 x 1 container or alternatively using a stretch or stretch banding procedure. The especially efficient concept presented at interpack 2017 consisting of a case packer and film bander can realise five different packaging solutions. The ‘supermarket’ exhibition area on the stand provides information using many, extra and different Meurer end packaging concepts, tailored completely individually to the product. Trade visitors can get an overview of the programme on retail ready packaging for different segments – from food through hygiene up to pet food. The packaging possibilities simplify logistics through reliable protection during transport, stability, stackability and clear labelling. These end-of-line packaging solutions simplify shelf stacking in retail, they are all easy to open and their dimensions are exactly oriented on retailer specifications. This minimises shelf stacking time while guaranteeing an attractive appearance on the shelves. The packaging is especially designed for sales on the shelf: the products are presented at the POS attractively and to gain attention and can be taken out of their shelf ready packaging easily. So overall, the secondary and tertiary packaging systems from Meurer stand for efficient, resources and cost saving shelf ready solutions that equally meet the needs of manufacturers, retailers and consumers in fiercely competitive markets – and pay off all the way down the line.
