Nordmeccanica in cooperation with “University of Parma” and a selected group of qualified technical partners launched an R&D project named Remopack (Recyclable mono-material for packaging).
The project will require a significant investment over the 3 years planned duration. To confirm the importance of the topic and the attention of the political authorities to the matter the project has been awarded a non-repayable financing from the Italian Ministry of Economical Development.
Target of the project will be the development of a mono-material high barrier fully recyclable flexible packaging structure.
With the term mono-material is indicated a laminated compound made out of layers of films manufactured out of the same base polymer. Current guidelines indicate the minimum percentage to qualify for “mono-material” in a range from 80 to 90%, variable country by country. Being the remaining percentage a tolerated amount of non-recyclable components.
The final target of the project is a laminated structure made of multiple film layers, all layers made of the same fully recyclable polymer. The structure through the combined contribution of lamination completed with the use of fully recyclable adhesives, barrier coatings, AlOx deposition in a vacuum metallizer, and technologies developed to emend the typical AlOx layer fragility will have to achieve very high mechanical and barrier properties to comply with the increased demand of performances recorded for flexible packaging. The target mono-material percentage for the project is to be as close as possible for the entire laminated compound to “fully recyclable”.
The innovation consists in pushing recyclability to the extreme while providing a process cost competitive with traditional technologies.
The development of the project will require the contribution of a number of high-level partners. All of them leading their specific market segment. Managing an R&D group of this complexity targeting highly innovative results requires extended expertise and significant technical knowledge. Nordmeccanica has been approved by public authorities in the leading role in recognition of the achievements reached in previous R&D projects and in acknowledgement of its historical role as innovator in our industry.
Partner in the leadership role will be the University of Parma. With its Interdepartmental Research Center for Packaging, University of Parma is leading the research at academic level in this segment in Europe. Parma is in fact the home base of EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, the authority responsible to screen and rate new technologies and innovations in the food supply chain.
December, like every year, is the month of evaluations regarding the work and the successes of the year just passed.
This, however, was more special than usual: after two years of stop, Nordmeccanica has finally managed to gather for the usual Christmas dinner and to celebrate all together the excellent work done.
For the occasion we retraced these last two "particular" years thanks to a video summary of all the goals achieved. Because, despite the difficulties, Nordmeccanica has never stopped and has always pushed and worked to achieve its goals especially in the professional field, but also thanks to personal and sporting successes.
With this video we want to share with all our customers and partners our results and thank them for their continued support over the years, wishing everyone a Happy Holiday and a serene 2023.

Another major project completed by Nordmeccanica in the Coating Lacquering industry segment. The customer, a film manufacturer, has purchased an Horizontal model so to be able to offer to converters a semi-finished product completing the product portfolio of its films with a variety of coatings in accordance to current trends in the industry. Machine features the unsurpassed drying technology pioneered by Nordmeccanica and able to offer unprecedented production performances while optimizing energy efficiency. The Horizontal model, the top of the line in the Nordmeccanica product range, stands in a league of its own for quality standards and overall performances and scrap reduction.
Machine will allow to handle primers, coatings, releases and a large variety of water or solvent based applications. Interchangeable coating heads, a technology introduced by Nordmeccanica during the 70s, offers the possibility to install every single coating head available in the range: Rotogravure; Close Chamber doctor Blade rotogravure; Semi Flexo; Offset gravure; Flexo; Flexo Special, and several others covering every possible need in the industry.
Film manufacturers represent a quickly growing segment among the Nordmeccanica reference list. Nordmeccanica is in fact the one source for their needs both in Vacuum metallization and film coating.
Machine was completed on time as for every other delivery completed during the pandemics. The unique approach to components sourcing allowed for a punctuality that as well offers no equal in the industry, eventually rewarded by the growth registered by Nordmeccanica in 2021.
