More Efficient than the Predecessors

Scanfill Invests in a New Production Line

Scanfill AB, a packaging company based in Ystad, Sweden, manufactures environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging material, based on renewable raw materials. The company, a part of the Polykemi Group, works to take care of the earth's resources, and their environmentally friendly material plays an important part of their work to reduce food waste.

During the autumn of 2019, Scanfill AB installed another foil extruder that can produce a wider range of materials and is also more efficient than its predecessors.

Production of Recyclable Barrier Materials

“Now we can produce up to seven layer structure materials with five extruders, tailored to meet customer's unique requirements. This new technology enables us to meet the increasingly stringent demands that the market places on the packaging industry,” explains Pontus Björklund, Technical Manager at Scanfill AB. “The new line gives us the capacity to produce barrier materials that are recyclable and have adaptable sealing properties. This allows us to customize the foil even more specifically to the customer's requirements and minimize the resources required.”

“With the new line, we will be able to use recycled material more efficiently by being able to build layered structures that allow the foil’s core to be produced from recycled material,” says Oscar Hugoson, Vice President at Scanfill.

The fact that the machine is both flexible and physically wider, opens up opportunities to work with new industries such as electronics and construction.
