Cardboard packaging instead of plastic blister packaging

The horizontal cartoner replaces the plastic blister packaging and automates the processes of erecting, filling and closing.

DIENST Verpackungstechnik from Hofheim am Taunus manufactures components and systems for the automatic packaging of food and non-food products.

Cardboard packaging instead of plastic blister packaging
For consumers, it is no longer just the quality or price of a product that counts. Sustainability has also established itself as an important factor in the non-food sector. VARTA and DIENST have recognized this high priority of consumers.

VARTA wanted to replace plastic blister packaging with a sustainable alternative. DIENST was therefore commissioned to develop a solution for the pure cardboard packaging of VARTA batteries. The solution is a horizontal cartoner from DIENST. The horizontal cartoner automates the processes of erecting, filling and sealing.

The problem was a real challenge. Because there are 10 different carton variants and correspondingly 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 formations. This means, for example, that 10 small AAA batteries have to be inserted into the cardboard box. The output with 4 lines per format is 850 products per minute. The highest output of format a) is up to 213 cartons per minute. A remarkable productivity.

The boxes have a tuck-in closure with additional glue flap, thus guaranteeing a tamper-evident closure. The practical packs can also be closed again after piece-by-piece removal.

This packaging solution is designed for recycling, as recyclability was already a priority during development. The batteries are packed stably and securely by the DIENST horizontal cartoner even in the pure carton packaging. The recess on the front of the carton acts as a viewing window through which the batteries are also visible from the outside. This means that plastic can be dispensed with completely for this packaging solution.
