Taiwan’s second TPM-1500TPN injection molded paper container line in tandem with UNIMAX’s EGMRRAC labeler will enable the facility to produce up to 24 million trays per year.
“With the launch of the second line, our factory will become one of the largest Russian exporters of premium packaging for eggs and will enter the top 5 manufacturers of these products in Eastern Europe,” says Marat Kaveev, director of FCF (Gusev, Kaliningrad region).
We see great potential in this direction and are considering options for expanding the range.
Our plans include further expansion of FCF production, investments in the development of the factory of about 500 million rubles. over the next five years and the creation of more than 50 qualified jobs, – says the president of the GS Group holding Andrey Tkachenko.
We expect to reach the level of annual revenues in excess of 1 billion rubles. for the production of packaging, of which at least 30% will be obtained through the export of products with high added value.
“We have been cooperating with the First Cardboard Factory for more than 10 years,” says Vladimir Cheryomushkin, General Director of PPP-Service (GT Group, St. Petersburg).
In addition to the cast packaging workshop, our group jointly assembled and launched a complete corrugated packaging workshop here.
The modernization that we completed this year is aimed at doubling the productivity of the cast packaging workshop.
In addition to the launch of the second TPM-1500 line and the EGMRRAC labeler from Unimax, we installed a vacuum pump here for a new thermoforming machine and replaced the pulper belt conveyor with an elevator feed loader. In addition, as part of a turnkey project, our engineers, together with the FCF technical service, modernized the pipeline systems and software.
TPM-1500TPN is a modern high-tech machine made by Taiwan Pulp Machinery Co., Ltd., which has been producing injection molded packaging lines for the past 25 years. It is intended for the production of articles from cast paper pulp by the thermoforming method. Productivity – 1400 trays / h.
The main features of the line are a high level of automation, ideal product quality and ease of maintenance. With proper adjustment of technological parameters, one operator can serve two or three lines.
The machines are made of durable anti-corrosion coated steel with a large stock of cross-section of the beams. Parts in contact with water / steam are made of SUS 304 stainless steel, molds are Teflon coated.
The hot press system allows for a high density of products, providing a smoother printable surface.
The finished product does not stick together in the stack and allows further operations (labeling, egg laying) to be performed automatically.
The EGMRRAC labeling machine from the Taiwanese company Unimax is designed to apply a label to a box for 10 eggs from a cast paper pulp. Its working speed is 32 pieces / min. Accuracy of labeling, low glue consumption and a high level of automation make the machines of this manufacturer the best offer on the labeling equipment market today.
Pervaya Kartonazhnaya Fabrika launched the production of molded paper packaging in 2013. The molded packaging workshop uses raw materials from its own corrugated packaging factory, which allows it to produce products at low cost.
Today, the company produces packaging for ten eggs in three colors with a high-quality full-color label. The products are supplied to poultry farms in the Kaliningrad and Leningrad regions, but are mainly exported.
Pervaya Kartonazhnaya Fabrika has been cooperating with Polish poultry farms and European distributors of packaging products for many years. Since 2014, PKF has supplied over 35 million egg carriages to the EU countries. In addition to the lines for the production of premium egg packaging, the company plans to master the production of packaging for fruits, berries and vegetables, the production of disposable tableware and other areas.
