Foams are an integral part of many packaging solutions. They are
ideally suited for the implementation of modern design concepts which

particularly relevant here, in addition to the need for protection and
clearly arranged products. Some very important functions in this
respect include the eye catching effect, branding strategies and the
highlighting of core product features.
We have used polyurethane (PUR) for our application example, a very
popular material for inlay manufacture where it is being used
increasingly. PUR is available as both a rigid and a soft foam.
Properties such as dimensional stability, light weight and favourable
prices make it a very versatile material. And what is more: it can be
cut to size accurately using CO2 laser technology.
The material is neither crimped nor displaced. Even the most sensitive
foams cut be cut accurately to the contour because there is no
mechanical stressing. A decorative and prestigious packaging for
ballpoint pens is cut in our application example.
Supporting inlays are found wherever products from high-quality
electronic components and on through to medical equipment are
transported safely or where individual products have to be packed
Surfaces finished with a laser engraving enhance the high-quality
impression of the product design as well as allowing additional
information to be placed where it will catch the eye. In these times
where the battle to win customers is ever more in the forefront, the
right packaging can help give you just that often so decisive selling
