At NPE 2015, Heilbronn, Germany-based Illig Maschinenbau GmbH Co. KG, will show its automatic thermoforming machines, in the RDKP — with a separate forming and punching station.
The machine will run a hinged food pack from amorphous PET (APET). The production line has a hold punch press positioned between the forming station and steel rule punch press, to give venting openings to the package.
The line works at a speed of up 50 cycles per minute with a 6-up mold.
Illig officials also will present in-mold labeling and the high-volume production of coffee capsules on RDM-K series thermoforming machines.
Every month Illig thermoformers turn out about 1.5 billion coffee capsules around the world, according to the company.
