Enercon Industries Ltd. of Buckinghamshire, England, touts its induction heating equipment that seals foil safety membranes on caps for packaging.
The induction liners are made from aluminum-foil membranes, coated with polymer and attached to a backing material using a wax bond. As the filled container passes under the induction heat, an electromagnetic field creates a low level of localized heat in the foil membrane, which melts the wax bond and the polymer coating.
Richard Bull, Enercon's managing director, said foil sealing reduces bottle weight, in addition to providing freshness and product safety.
Enercon's U.S. business is based in Menomonee Falls, Wis.
