Mitsubishi HiTec Paper and SN Maschinenbau working together in the field of flexible paper packaging

August 19, 2022

In the field of flexible packaging for food and non-food, sustainable solutions are particularly in demand. Bielefeld-based speciality paper manufacturer Mitsubishi HiTec Paper and Wipperfürth-based expert for pouch packaging machines SN Maschinenbau are now joining forces to offer safe and environmentally friendly packaging solutions made of paper.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper has been offering barricote®, an innovative range of recyclable barrier papers for flexible packaging of food and non-food, for several years. SN Maschinenbau is known worldwide for first-class horizontal form, fill and seal machines (HFFS) for a wide variety of products, especially food. In close cooperation and after numerous test runs, the two companies have now proved that the water-coated barricote papers can be processed on SN Maschinenbau pouch packaging machines just as reliably as films. This eliminates the need for costly retrofitting of the machine technology.

"We were able to successfully test our barricote grades Liner MG, Liner MGO, BAG WG and BAG WGOM for use as stand-up pouches at SN Maschinenbau" says Andreas Carstensen, application engineer at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper. "All barrier papers performed equally in the process as established plastic materials. Our papers not only provide barriers against water vapour, grease, oil, oxygen and aroma but also against mineral oil migration. They are also recyclable in the waste paper cycle and are made from renewable raw materials, they are heat-sealable as well as FSC® and PEFC™ certified."

As one of the world's leading manufacturers of horizontally operating pouch packaging machines, we are delighted with the excellent cooperation with Mitsubishi HiTec Paper and the positive test results. This proves once again that a large part of today's sustainable mono packaging materials can be processed reliably without extensive adaptation of the machine technology. Furthermore, together with Mitsubishi HiTec Paper, we offer a solution for the increasing demand for paper packaging in the market."

Reiner Müller, Director Business Development & Global Accounts at SN Maschinenbau
