V-Shapes to present innovative print, fill & seal converting/packaging machine at Fachpack

V-Shapes, an innovative supplier of vertically integrated products and services for convenient, hygienic and sustainable single-dose packaging, will be exhibiting at Fachpack, scheduled for 28-30 September in Nuremberg, Germany.

The company will be featuring V-Shapes PRIME, its entry-level print/fill & seal converting machine, in Hall 6, Stand 6-143, in partnership with AstroNova’s TrojanLabel® and Steuckart Verpackungstechnik. During the show, V-Shapes will be printing and converting single-dose sachets filled with generic hand sanitiser as well as featuring various brands and artwork. This will enable attendees to experience how easy and efficient it is to operate this vertically integrated machine with a single operator, and they will have the ability to produce an accurate brand image on the sachets.

The version on display will feature an inline TrojanLabel T2-C high-volume full-color digital label press for in-line printing on the top of the sachets. Sachets can be printed using SIHL ARTYSIO substrates that are certified recyclable for a more eco-friendly product. In addition to the excellent printability in aqueous inkjet, they also have outstanding sealing properties to provide the best protection with barrier properties tailored to the filled product.

‘We are looking forward to the opportunity to share our excitement about the new innovative single-dose sachets with Fachpack visitors to our stand, where they will be able to see the V-Shapes PRIME in action,’ says Klaus Steuckart, General Manager for German partner Steuckart Verpackungstechnik in Viersen.

V-Shapes staff will also be explaining to attendees its unique AlphaFlex fill and seal converting/packaging machine. This compact, professional-grade system features high quality synchronised printing on both sides of the sachets, powered by Memjet DuraFlex® technology and ColorGATE Packaging Productionserver. This unique machine brings vertical integration of high volume production of patented single-dose sachets on site, speeding time to market and eliminating the need to outsource printing or accomplish it as a separate offline step.

Vilius Kryznauskas, EU sales director for V-Shapes, states: ‘This revolutionary filling/converting machine was made possible through a variety of important partnerships, including Memjet, Siemens and SIHL, as well as the talented V-Shapes engineering team. It was no small challenge to develop synchronised feeds and printing for the upper and lower layers of our patented single-dose sachets, and we think the visitors to FachPack will be amazed when they learn what we and our partners have accomplished!’
