With more than 40 years thermoforming technology experience in the packaging industry (cups, trays, blisters, etc.), KIEFEL Packaging offers its customers customized tools of the highest quality. Everything to achieve one goal: your satisfaction and the unique productivity advantage.
We are always looking for the balance between optimal forming surface and film utilization, easy tool handling and the shortest unloading times. We excel through versatility and flexibility, delivering a productivity advantage and the best possible product to our customers.
KIEFEL Packaging develops and builds tools for steel rule cutting applications - separately forming and punching - and combined forming / cutting tools, suitable for all standard steel rule cutting machines and plastic materials such as PP, PS, PE, PET, PLA etc. Your tools will be tested and matched for mass production on the systems at the Kiefel Technology Center. We offer you the best possible forming surface and film utilization by means of a cavity arrangement individually adapted to your products.
We build thermoforming tools for all common thermoforming systems.
The Kiefel Cut in Place (BFS) system enables the production of high-quality plastic packaging with the best price-performance ratio.
These tools are perfect for making trays and lids.
Calculate different tool configurations on more than 40 thermoforming machines and determine your (extrusion) output.
This calculation program is a tool to help you calculate:
Calculate the right information at your convenience. You can calculate the number of cavities on various European machine types in the market. Tool layout and number of cavities are depending on many different parameters as machine type, machine serial number, sheet quality, sheet thickness, product heights, available infrastructure, skill of machine operators, stacking systems or many other variables.
Under some conditions, with reduced space for spreading the sheet or if you are willing to accept a less stable tool, the number of cavities can possibly be increased. In other situations there can be very good reasons to decrease the number of cavities. The Configurator uses standard machine data from machines, material and stacker systems.
