GN Thermoforming Equipment, a Canada-based manufacturer of servo-driven, roll-fed thermoforming machines for the production of plastic packaging, its new GN800 thermoforming machine, very successful sales results.
Jerome Romkey, GN's vice president for sales and overseas operations, said orders received through GN were expected to increase further in the coming months in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.
He noted that processors were impressed with the GN800’s quality, robustness, and key features which provide faster cycles and greater efficiencies. The machine is currently targeted for food, medical, and industrial packaging.
The thermoformer offers many standard features including forming capability of 5-in above and below the sheet line, in-mold-cut capability, auto-grease, heavy-duty bearings in the toggle system, and high-efficiency SOLAR heaters. Among the top priorities of GN’s customer-focused approach are improving productivity and ensuring that customers produce the most finished parts per pound of sheet.
Among its sustainability goals, consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies are seeking their suppliers to reduce package weight. The GN800 is designed for use with minimum thickness plastic materials and is used in conjunction with co-edge systems. As a result, the finished product output per pound (kg) of material is significantly increased, and all thermoformable PET, OPS, HIPS, PLA, PP and PVC can be processed.
