PET Multipacks go Anuga Foodtec in Cologne!

21 February 2022

ALFA MACHINE is excited to present a major innovation to the European food industry.  The integration of a new pre-cut technology that produces PET easily snappable multipacks into single cups.  

Polystyrene material is no longer the only way to go in multipacks' production, the industries can also use PET material taking advantage of its 100% recyclability and its lower price.

After the great success of the first presentation of this cutting-edge technology at the Gulfood Manufacturing exhibition in Dubai last November, Alfa Machine is now preparing to bring this significant innovation to Europe's largest international food technology show, Anuga Foodtec.

The new FRS-L 10/40 is designed and manufactured specifically upon customers’ expectations for an eco-friendly transition from the Polystyrene (PS) base material to the recyclable and more cost-effective PET material, without outlining the use of PS.

Easy-snap PET cups and a combination of mono-material packaging can be now a reality, offering a completely recyclable packaging. Also, the superior transparency of PET material is without doubt an asset on applications requiring premium product visibility.

Additionally, the new FRS-L 10/40 is equipped with the unique In-Mould-Labelling system which is able to produce labelled cups for both cold and hot filled products, offering zero limitations in product’s filling temperature.  Simple to use, accurate and reliable in its operation, this new FFS machine is designed with attention to detail aiming to low maintenance. That’s how we’ve managed to excel in our challenging field for the last 39 years.
