Syntegon Technology, formerly Bosch Packaging Technology, has won a German Packaging Award for its compact TPU1000 form, fill and seal system machine.

The new machine impressed the DVI (German Packaging Institute) with its innovative, sustainable portion packs made of fibre-based material, which underlines Syntegon's focus on sustainable and intelligent technologies.

Each year, the DVI honours groundbreaking packaging ideas and machines from across all industries and packaging materials. According to the jury, Syntegon’s TPU1000 paves the way for new, sustainable packaging solutions that meet the trends towards replacing petrochemical plastics and individualisation.

The TPU offers brand owners with high demands on sustainability and aesthetics completely new packaging options for food, cosmetics and non-food products​,” says Matthias Klauser, sustainability expert at Syntegon Technology. “We are therefore all the more pleased that the DVI recognises our innovation and sustainability efforts​.”

Sustainable and unique

The module-based TPU1000 forms environmentally friendly 'Shaped Paper Pods' with a filling volume of 10 to 100 milliliters, which are suitable for single-portion packs and small-format products that are normally packaged in blisters. The material fed from the paper roll is formed into the desired shape at a speed of up to 15,000 packages per hour. This enables high quality packaging designs and embossing for a variety of products and filling techniques.

The jury also praised the innovative material: “This highly stretchable paper allows wrinkle-free processing from a roll and a detailed reproduction of small embossing elements​.”
