When it comes to sustainability, Microline is committed to playing a frontline role. This is why we manufacture machines that do not produce trimmings, resulting in material savings of between 20% and 30% compared to our competitors and optimised energy consumption. At the same time, we firmly believe in the use of new environmentally-sustainable materials. Over the past couple of years, our research activities have included a series of tests aimed at verifying the handling and performance of environmentally-friendly packaging films. The aim is to test their performance under production conditions, in order to establish their machinability. Once again, we are working in partnership with other businesses, particularly leaders in the development of biofilms and compostable products that are not harmful to the environment. So far, all the results have been much more encouraging than expected: when tested for the packing and overpacking of different product ranges, including individual AFH-type rolls and bundled bags of coffee, the “eco” films proved to be perfectly compatible with Microline’s machinery range, with performance on a par with the equivalent plastic products in terms of mechanical strength, pack quality and the performance obtained. It was not necessary to make any hardware changes to the Microline machines, which therefore only require a simple change of parameter settings on the HMI panel to be able to use the compostable films. This paves the way for the massive use of this type of film in the consumer packaged goods sector, and that of Tissue products for consumer or industrial use, and many more besides. Increasingly deeper knowledge of materials and their behaviour enriches the company’s know-how and can be an important aspect to be shared with customers.

AL80 and FAST WRAP1250 spearhead Microline’s production range for paper roll packaging. The machines offer a continuous operating cycle, which ensures higher performance, lower energy consumption and better efficiency for optimum management of different product sizes.
The complete shutdown of businesses in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has gradually led to raw material shortages and rising energy costs. So, in these unprecedented times, companies desperately need sustainable solutions capable of saving available resources, whilst avoiding unnecessary wastage. Microline’s new AFH roll bundler is the ideal solution
With its firm commitment to sustainability, Microline manufactures machinery that affords significant waste reduction and optimised energy consumption. Microline also believes strongly in the use of new environmentally-sustainable materials. For this reason, it has partnered with Slovenian company Di Mucci d.o.o.
Microline is a hi-tech business capable of adapting its solutions to suit every single customer’s needs. Indeed, the company’s latest offerings are the result of careful analysis that has considered both market requirements and end-consumer needs. An example is the Fast Wrap 1250.
Developed to meet Tissue industry requirements, ECO WRAP 1050 is one of the latest additions to the Microline range of versatile, user-friendly bundlers. ECO Wrap is a bundler capable of using various types of plastic film as the wrapping material, thus avoiding wastage of materials and energy.
