Kiefel Gmbh, a market leader in the design and manufacture of polymer and natural fiber processing machines, automation and tools, will present its extensive portfolio of innovative and sustainable solutions for various industries at Interpack 2023, to be held on 4 -10 May in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Processing capabilities range from natural fibers to recycled and recyclable polymers or bio-based materials. Product samples such as cups, trays,  bowls or coffee capsules will be on display. Kiefel will be present in Hall 8a / C57.

Award winning natural fiber innovation

“At Interpack 2023, one focus will be on the machine series for the  production of biodegradable natural fiber packaging. We are delighted  to receive the WorldStar Award 2023 for our Natureformer KFT  90 machine at this trade fair as recognition of Kiefel’s commitment to  sustainable packaging solutions,” says Cornelia Frank, Global  director of Fiber Packaging at Kiefel. Kiefel Fiber Thermoforming allows  the manufacture of sustainable packaging such as bowls, cups, lids, coffee capsules, packaging for frozen food, secondary packaging for electronics and luxury goods, and flower pots. Moreover, together with  Pagès Group and MCC Verstraete, Kiefel will also showcase recyclable  or compostable label solutions suitable for fiber packaging. 

Material-saving plastic solutions – efficiently produced

“Additionally, we are displaying machine technology for the efficient  production of sustainable polymer containers, which are lightweight and material saving and can be made of mono materials, like our  Speedformer KMD 78.2 SPEED for tray production and our  Speedformer KTR 5.2 for cup production,” highlights Armin Dietrich, Director Sales of Polymer Packaging at Kiefel. 

Flexible form-fill-seal technology for medical bags

Beside these packaging applications, Kiefel is also involved in the  improvement of patients’ quality of life and healthcare with its new  flexible Solutionperformer: Visitors can explore the modular system that combines bag making, filling and sealing in a single  system at the best price-performance ratio for top-quality infusion, multi chamber or CAPD bag production. 

Kiefel develops and produces machines for processing plastics, recycled  and bio-based materials as well as natural fibers. Kiefel’s customers include well known manufacturers from the medical engineering & pharma, refrigerator, and  packaging industries. 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
