Flexible packaging company Constantia Flexibles Group has installed a new duplex multi-technology laminator at its South African-based subsidiary Constantia Afripack in order to enhance quality, productivity and capacity.

Set to become fully operational in the second quarter of this year, the laminator will meet demands coming from industries such as confectionary and snacks, as well as home and personal care.

The laminator contains a highly sensitive web tension control system that is suitable for extremely low tolerances for a range of flexible substrates of different materials and varying thickness.

“It is a commitment to supplying the latest technology to our customers.”

Constantia Flexibles Group food division executive vice-president Stefan Grote said: “This investment in Afripack, Africa’s second largest flexible packaging company, is a commitment to supplying the latest technology to our customers.

“It is also a commitment to South Africa, whose economy is slowly returning to old strengths.”

The solvent-free packaging solutions offered by the laminator complement existing solvent-based and cold seal manufacturing options at Afripack.
