Section: Walki Group
Walki Group is in the forefront of innovation and committed to being so also in the future. As one of the few companies in the field of intelligent packaging materials, Walki will showcase its cutting-edge technologies at the Moscow International Forum for Innovative Development “Open Innovations” scheduled to take place from 31st October to 3rd November.
Walki Group, a leading producer of technical laminates and packaging materials, took up a major challenge. As a result, French luxury coffee maker Malongo will introduce, in December 2012, a novel way to pack high-quality coffee pods using environmentally sustainable and recyclable materials. The new packaging was developed in cooperation between Walki, Swedish paper manufacturer Korsnäs, and Malongo, and it could open up new doors for Walki in the future.
Walki Group, a leading producer of technical laminates and protective packaging materials, will invest in a new multi-colour flexographic printing machine in Poland to further enhance the printing quality of its ream wrap products offered to Central and Eastern European markets.
Since the global increase in energy use is showing few signs of slowing down, sustainable energy solutions have to be developed. For this reason, the energy of biomass has to be used more widely and more efficiently. In forests all over the world a huge amount of logging residue is left lying idle and the bioenergy unused. This could be changed by using Obey, a procedure for optimising bioenergy yield, based on long, Nordic traditions.
The manufacturing of RFID antennas through the process of etching is now being challenged by a new patented technology: Walki-4E, a new way of producing flexible circuit boards efficiently and sustainably. This is possible through a dry production process, involving no liquid chemicals and using paper as the substrate. It also allows for computer to antenna production and extremely accurate laser cutting of the circuit board patterns.
