The newly designed "Twister Plus" wicketed bag for tissue products necessitates around seven percent less material than conventional wicketed bags and requires significantly less effort for manufacturing. This involves reverse-printed hygiene packaging with a handle and easy opening function.
In close co-operation with a customer, the packaging and film specialist developed a new design for this converted packaging. The PE film for the bag can now be selected 10 µm thinner, for example. No additional label is required for the handle area. Thanks to the switch from first printing to reverse printing, an entire operation step is omitted. The quality of the printed image is improved at the same time.
Based on an order volume of 10 million units per year, the new wicketed bag enables over 14 tonnes of material – primarily polyethylene, but also lacquer – to be saved.
