Partnership for Carbon Neutral Film Packaging solutions
Wipak and Woodly Ltd. are joining forces to accelerate the shift towards a carbon-neutral future. With the strategic partnership, the two companies will share technological resources to develop and deploy a portfolio of film packaging solutions.
Wipak is a global flexible packaging group that recently announced its strategy of intending to reduce their CO2 footprint to zero by 2025.
Woodly® is a new versatile carbon-neutral material based on cellulose from sustainably managed forests. Woodly can be used for packaging Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) and it is designed to be recyclable.
- Our cooperation will allow us to significantly reduce our and our customers’ CO2 footprint, says Wipak Commercial Director Ronald Schuster
Wipak and Woodly will jointly present their product innovations at Fachpack, the European trade fair for packaging, processing, and technology in Nürnberg, Germany on September 24th to 26th.
Technical University of Munich, Oerlikon, GE Additive and Linde to establish additive manufacturing cluster in Bavaria
The Technical University of Munich (TUM), Oerlikon, GE Additive and Linde are collaborating to create an additive manufacturing cluster. This cluster is a grouping of companies and organizations that will conduct research on and develop additive manufacturing technology from a single hub location.
Over the last twenty years, stand-alone vibration sensors for reciprocating compressors have evolved from ineffective RMS vibration transmitters to first-generation shock monitoring technology. That technology provided valuable data by shifting from VAC-to-VDC RMS signal processing to impact counting, but had its own set of disadvantages. Second generation shock-monitoring technology has built upon the existing technology to create a solution that is best tailored for reciprocating compressor monitoring.
