Interpack is one of the leading trade fairs for the packaging and processing industry. It takes place every three years in Düsseldorf, Germany. The event showcases the latest innovations, technologies, and solutions in packaging, processing, printing, and related industries. The last edition was held last 4 to 10 May. Interpack confirmed altogether approx. 143,000 visitors from 155 countries visited the trade fair.
Of course, Vormenfabriek Tilburg was present at this Interpack edition. Traditionally, Vormenfabriek showed their latest ideas, developments and possibilities. Discussions with visitors to our stand included the approach to design, the results of the many investments these last two years and the great advantage of using Gantt charts. Given the growing need for new product design, our “renewed” design services were listened to with interest. In addition, innovations related to food safety were discussed.
New and innovations
Our x-ray detectable materials caused quite a stir. By using this specific material, any improper substances remaining in the product can be detected. An improved development of metal-detectable as it gives the opportunity to detect much smaller pieces. A great demand from the market and a unique solution from Vormenfabriek. The developments surrounding smart molds 2.0 were also a hot topic with a lot of interest. Together with line manufacturers we gave several demos how this beautiful innovative process works in practice. We also explained new use of materials with improved heat exchange and better demoulding.
Naturally, attention was also paid to sustainability, which is certainly included in the business operations of Vormenfabriek like taking back and recycling used moulds. And last but not least the different (current and future) outcomes of held and to be held Kaizen sessions, which of course also benefits our customers.
Overall, we have experienced Interpack 2023 as a great vital meeting point for a serious number of customers and interested parties. We were able to welcome a greater number of visitors to our stand than ever before. In addition, we used the fair to further strengthen the already good contacts with our agents. It was good to have them at our booth as extra Vormenfabriek representatives.
