The choice of the packaging material for a product is a key part of the packaging design strategy.

Consumers are increasingly attentive not only to the products they buy, but also to the type of material used for their packaging; from physical stores to ecommerce, the packaging along the entire distribution chain increasingly influences choices.

Reduced environmental impact, ease of disposal and recycling are just some of the drivers that have pushed Sitma to collaborate with some of the main paper producers in the world, such as UPM and MONDI, to develop and implement ad hoc solutions able to fully respond to these needs. Again, protection, communication, ease of opening and reuse are the other characteristics that a ecommerce packaging material should allow.

For years, paper has no longer been a challenge for Sitma machines, a pioneer of these applications. However, the increase in consumers’ attention to the issue of sustainability has prompted paper mills all over the world to seek out new types of paper with characteristics that are more suited to the world of packaging than the tradition of graphic arts

    Not all products need to be fully wrapped, and not all products need to be wrapped in paper.

    Therein lies our strength: offering versatile solutions that allow our interlocutor to choose the type of material that best suits his product, his philosophy.

    Materials such as pluriball, bio film and compostable film, padded paper, laminated paper, thermo-sealable paper and water-repellent paper are all researched and tested on our machines to guarantee their usability.
