ILLIG Technology for Winners
ILLIG showcases sustainable solid carton blister pack
Nuremberg, September 28, 2021 - Honored with this year's German Packaging Award and the European Carton Excellence Award 2021: the plastic-free toothbrush packaging from GSK Consumer Healthcare and its partners Karl Knauer KG and M+C Schiffer, produced on ILLIG HSU 35b packaging systems. Congratulations!
The award-winning full-cardboard toothbrush blisters with a viewing window made of cellulose fibers of the Dr.BEST and Aquafresh brands can be completely recycled into the paper virgin material cycle. By converting these toothbrush packages to cardboard blister packs, more than 444 tons of plastic are saved annually. As a machine and tool manufacturer with Circular Thinking, ILLIG supports its customers in the realization of sustainable packaging solutions. Because less is more: reduce - reuse - separate - recycle - renew.
At Fachpack in Nuremberg from September 28 to 30, ILLIG Maschinenbau will demonstrate how the flexible production of sustainable full-cardboard blisters made of recycled cardboard with different designs and contents is possible on just one packaging system without format changes and setup time in the production process. ILLIG will present the latest packaging system of the HSU 35b series at booth 205 in hall 1. The system is suitable for safe, perfectly executed and sustainable blister packaging made of cardboard-plastic cardboard combinations (double card blister) or solid cardboard for packaging non-food products for attractive presentation at the point of sale.
The economical and efficient HSU 35b is designed for variable blister heights and can be configured with up to 12 transport pallets for any application. The packaging system adapts to the individual requirements of packaging manufacturers with numerous equipment features. Examples are automatic product feeding, product presence control, inlay (product fixation in the carton blister), inserts for brochures, various marking systems, code readers, and blister lifters. ILLIG packaging systems are modular, flexible, and efficient.
