Buhrs has received a major order from Deutsche Post to upgrade packaging systems with a paper sleeve wrapping module for sending of Einkaufaktuell with advertising brochures. “Previously, the same systems were used to package Einkaufaktuell in foil, but that is no longer the case in Germany. Fortunately, existing Buhrs packaging systems can be converted to packaging with a paper sleeve wrapping. A total of 16 Buhrs systems for Einkaufaktuell will be converted and fitted with an inkjet head for addressing," says general manager Dick Verheij.

A Buhrs 4000 packaging system was recently installed at Drukkerij van der Poorten in Leuven (Belgium). The system is suitable for packaging printed matter in foil as well as in paper. The option of hybrid packaging has been important for Drukkerij van der Poorten for the investment. In Wallonia, it will be prohibited from the end of 2022 to wrap publications and folder packages in plastic foil. This prohibition does not yet apply in the other regions, but packaging in paper is clearly gaining popularity and has the future. With the new Buhrs 4000, Drukkerij van der Poorten is ready for this. Buhrs was the world's first manufacturer of paper packaging systems. The accumulated knowledge and years of experience – in addition to reliability and quality – have been important for the Belgian printing company in choosing Buhrs.

At Sagawa, one of the leading printers in Japan, a new Buhrs 3000 intelligent packaging system is again being installed. This system has 23 compact feeders, which can be controlled completely selectively. In this way, every recipient receives a completely personal package of printed matter with customized offers with his purchases. That, in combination with all the built-in intelligence, makes this system so unique. We have developed the software for this entirely in-house. With this software, every document is traced, so that the correct content is guaranteed in the packaging. The net output of this system is well above 7,000 packaging per hour.

It is no longer a matter of debate that packaging magazines and printed matter in paper is the future. In more and more European countries, this is prescribed by the government. Buhrs was the world's first manufacturer of paper wrapping and packaging systems. Solid systems with a very long lifecycle. We recently we have refurbished a Buhrs 3000 packaging system for our partner OK Solutions with an upgrade for paper wrapping. This system was bought by Veldhuis Media in The Netherlands.

GT (Greta Thunberg) proof packaging is new standard in France. It stands for packaging in TUV certified Biowrap plastic or in paper. France, being the biggest market in Europe for publication wrapping, has moved away from using normal PE or PP. Publishers are choosing between Biowrap or paper, also newspapers are going that direction. We have to realize that this is a big commitment from their side in direction of a more sustainable world, both wrapping materials are far more expensive than standard PE, depending on size, print and thickness this varies between 3 to 5 times the original cost.

Symeta – a Belgian provider of solutions in effective business communication – switched a few year ago their production for Colruyt to a targeted 4-page booklet for each individual customer. It brought the supermarket cost savings and a steady growth in sales by providing consumers a shopping list based on their shopping behaviour via their loyalty card. In this prestigious project Buhrs installed three Buhrs 3000 paperwrapping lines, equipped with 10 selective feeders each and controlled by the Buhrs Data Controller (BDC).

Business Case

In the Noordhollands Dagblad an article was published that answers the question for personalised packaged brochures. More than 100,000 households that compile their own brochure package via Kiesjefolder.nl receive their brochures on a weekly basis. The packages are tailor-made at Nic Oud on a specially equipped Buhrs production line for poly packaging.
