Kobusch UK invests £3m in rPET pack line

Kobusch UK has announced that it has installed an inline sheet facility at its Stanley operation

The rigid plastics firm said that its new kit enables the firm to produce 100% food-contact compliant rPET flat sheet.

Kobusch UK sales director Tony Mitchell said: “The new Erema system with SML downstream equipment will enable us to continue to increase the amount of post -consumer waste in our rPET production without sacrificing any quality in clarity in the thermoforming process.”

The £3m investment centres on a Vacurema inline sheet system from Erema and SML. The installation will be in commercial production in the first half of 2013 producing monolayer material from recycled feedstock.

“Thanks to the efficient decontamination of the flakes, Kobusch UK is even able to use the Vacurema to produce food-contact grade sheet purely from rPET,” said  Erema joint chief executive Manfred Hackl.
