No film waste is the key to this tray lidding system from ORICS.
Most cup, tub and tray sealing machinery currently available generate an inordinate amount of excess film that needs to be handled, discarded and ultimately recycled at a significant cost in terms of money, labor and energy.
The unique design of the S-30 and CMTS Eco-Cut® systems by ORICS eliminate this film waste and have proven to be a perfect fit for leading processors in the food packaging industry. ORICS’ Eco-Cut® film feeder technology cuts the film in between each container, leaving no wasted film and potentially saving the facility $35,000, or more, per year in material costs alone. Further savings include reduced labor costs and downtime by eliminating the need to handle and discard excess film.
What’s more, Eco-Cut® also lessens a producer’s carbon footprint and environmental impact by virtually eliminating discarded material. By reducing the material cost for the ongoing purchase of lidding material (film), an Eco-Cut® system practically pays for itself; turning environmentally-conscious eco-friendly design into verifiable savings.
