Packaging solutions tailored to market requirements

Film packaging machines from Hugo Beck for flowpacks, bags and shrink packs is used to pack a wide variety of food products efficiently and in a resource-saving way – and all with a perfect appearance. Applications include dairy products, meat and fish goods, ready-made products, tea, frozen items such as pizzas, and a lot more. Our range of services includes the ability to individually pack items, such as for muesli bars. Fruit and vegetables in cans or in jars as multipack shrink-wrap packaging are also just as much a part of our repertoire as tray packaging for transporting plastic cups or cans. All this and much, much more besides.

In contrast to the attractive packaging designed for maximum impact on store shelves, with transport packaging it is particularly important that the often-heavier products arrive in the store in perfect condition for easy unpacking.

We regard ourselves as a partner to both industry and the retail sector in the devising of sustainable packaging solutions for primary and secondary packaging through innovation and further developments in machine technology.

Thus, films made of mono-materials or of up to 100% recycled material, bio-films or extremely thin packaging films, down to 7μm - can all be processed by Hugo Beck machines.

Thanks to our patented tight packaging with an absolutely precise fit of the film and hardly any film waste during production, our resource-saving machine technology delivers material savings of some 15% right from the outset. And material savings of up to 60% per pack are also possible thanks to the ability to process thinner, lighter packaging and shrink films in comparison with those traditionally used in the sector.
