Form, Fill, Seal System for Shaped Paper Pods
Syntegon TPU paper form, fill, and seal machine

With the TPU paper form, fill, and seal machine from Syntegon Technology and the BillerudKorsnäs 3D formable FibreForm paper, a new solution is born.

Shaped Paper Pods is a packaging system for uniquely shaped and right-sized packaging, with a tactile feeling reflecting the brand and product content. The new sustainable solution is ideal for product samples, inserts, refills, portion packs, and disposable packaging, for brand owners with high environmental ambitions.

Unique Sensory Experiences
The new TPU paper form, fill, and seal machine forms environmentally friendly shaped paper pods with a filling volume of just a few and up to 100 ml. The FibreForm paper is shaped by air pressure and embossed by press force. Using heat-sealing technology, the Shaped Paper Pod can be sealed with any heat-sealable lidding materials; barriers will be completely customized to customer needs.

“We achieved a perfect match of technology and material for scalable packaging solutions, which creates a unique sensory experience for brand and customer interactions,” says Matthias Klauser, sustainability expert at Syntegon Technology, Germany.

To showcase the possibilities and the flexibility of the system, Syntegon Technology and BillerudKorsnäs have previously presented the elaborate packaging concept "Pearl”. As of now, shapes of any kind can be formed from the FibreForm paper for many various applications. “FibreForm is the natural alternative where plastic has been the norm. Allowing for up to ten times deeper embossing than regular paper, resulting in 3D effects that make an impact,” explains Simon Johansson, project manager at BillerudKorsnäs, Sweden.

Spreads, Cookies or Cosmetics - All Packed in Paper
The new packaging system is ideal for individual portion packs and products that would usually be packed in blisters. In addition to cosmetics or samples, Shaped Paper Pods can be used to package dry, chunky or viscous food thanks to a thin barrier layer. The new TPU paper forming machine offers manufacturers a range of filling and sealing systems for sustainable packaging at an output of up to 15,000 shaped paper pods per hour.
