Marchesini Group, an Italian packaging company which designs and builds stand-alone machines and customised lines for packaging pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, will be exhibiting at Propak Cape, the innovative packaging solutions trade expo taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from October 24th to 26th.

Marchesini Group team will be at the stand D17 to show visitors all the solutions with a specific focus on labelling and secondary packaging solutions. Thanks to Neri division, specialised in the production of sterilisation tunnels and labelling machines for a wide range of products, the Group can provide different machines with one or two labelling heads for the application and verification of self-adhesive labels on bottles, vials and ampoules of different shapes and sizes. At the same time, Marchesini Group is specialised in manufacturing machines and lines for packaging and forming deep-draw trays and paperboard trays: cartoners offer the most advanced solutions for handling, stacking and gently inserting the products into cartons with the utmost precision.

The Group’s latest green solutions

Marchesini group has been researching and developing paperboard tray solutions for over 10 years. Paperboard trays offer all the benefits of single-material packaging. The tray is of the same material as the carton. Eliminating a second material, such as plastic, can reduce material ordering and storage logistics by up to 50%.

Secondly, protecting fragile products, like syringes and vials, is a costly operation. By using paperboard trays customers benefit from reduced operating costs and floor space as well as increased operating efficiencies. In addition to the above, these solutions also offer huge benefits in ensuring that the products inside them are well-protected and secure. This offers massive advantages in terms of storage and transport as well as presenting products to the end user in a modern way.

Marchesini Group has a team that focuses on designing customised trays and cartons for specific product type, sizes and quantities. Using prototypes and mock-ups, the trays and cartons are then fine-tuned so that customers can optimise their entire packaging line, from the handling of the components, to the cartoner and right down to the case-packer and palletiser.
