motion plastics for the
packaging industry

Compliance with the highest hygiene standards, precise and fast processing, and safety and reliability

Solutions in the packaging, food or beverage industry are mostly very sensitive. Special requirements have to be fulfilled, especially where contact with food is concerned. At the same time, packaging equipment must enable precise and fast processing combined with cleanliness and economic efficiency. Tuned to the specific needs of the packaging industry, such as food hygiene, FDA and/or EU compliance, we are able to provide you with our maintenance-free and lubrication-free machine parts made of high-performance plastics that help optimise your packaging machines.
