GAW order at Mayr-Melnhof Frohnleiten

April 10, 2015

Board used for safe packaging of food

At the beginning of 2015, GAW technologies GmbH , which has a subsidiary in Chicago, undertook the rebuild and extension project of the cardboard machine KM3 of Mayr-Melnhof Karton AG at their main production facility in Frohnleiten/Austria.

The brand new premium quality coated recycled board is produced in an “inline-production” and includes a one-of-a-kind functional barrier for safe primary packaging of food. This innovation on the packaging market represents a quantum leap when it comes to product safety, because packaged food is protected from defined unwanted substances, such as mineral oil, phthalate, bisphenol A, and DIPN.

Among other things, the entire coating section was completely rebuilt during this ambitious project. GAW is proud to have been part of this collaboration, resulting in this milestone in carton manufacturing.
