TECHNOLOGY & SUSTAINABILITY (Source: KHS/Martens)   Jan Martens now has the necessary flexibility to best meet the current needs of the retail trade. Secondary packaging: KHS offers extensive portfolio Nature MultiPack is just one example of the ever-increasing range of sustain- able and pioneering secondary pack- aging systems on offer from KHS. The Dortmund turnkey supplier pursues a clear holistic strategy, as Sören Stor- beck, Global Product Account Manag- er for Packaging at KHS, explains. “Our overriding aim is to perfectly cater for all of our customers’ requirements. We thus believe in providing not just a full portfolio of line and packaging systems and solutions but also a global service network that’s available to our customers round the clock.” Among the latest innovations engi- neered by the systems supplier is the Innopack Kisters wrap-around shrink paper packer (WSPP A) that can wrap cans in either paper, cardboard or film. This variety is facilitated by the modu- lar design of all Innopack Kisters ma- chines that enables existing models to be quickly and flexibly retrofitted with the additional paper-wrapping func- tion. By combining various process modules, a WSPP A can process three different types of secondary packag- ing, for example: wrap-around cartons, trays and pads that can be wrapped in either paper or shrink film. It is now also possible to process film made of 100% recyclate on Innopack Kisters machinery – without any loss in quality or performance. Another groundbreaking packag- ing alternative can be produced by the new Innopack Kisters CNP (Carton Nature Packer). This powerful and flex- ible packer turns cans into stable packs using toppers or clips made of corru- gated cardboard or solid board. KHS’ inventiveness is by no means limited to the above. “We’re striving to develop even more efficient and sustainable systems – whether for primary, sec- ondary or tertiary packaging,” states Storbeck. “Together with our customers and partners we’re constantly working on saving even more resources and fur- ther strengthening the recycling loop.” (Source: KHS/Martens) Jan Martens, boss of the traditional Martens brewery in Belgium, is convinced by KHS’ Nature MultiPack technology. His company already uses the sustainable packaging alternative for PET bottles – and will soon also do so for cans.  80 AMEFT 3 2021 “Together with our customers and partners we’re constantly working on saving even more resources and further strengthening the recycling loop,” says Sören Storbeck, Global Product Account Manager at KHS.
