We invest in technologies, research and knowledge to ensure the best innovation in packaging.
The Ghelfi 1905 division is composed of a team of experienced technicians dedicated to the identification and development of innovative solutions in the fields of:
Technologies and processes
Study and characterisation of the properties of papers going into the various compositions of the corrugated cardboard.
Mechanical optimisation of corrugated cardboard, also through specially-developed software.
Study and optimisation of the flexographic and digital printing process (photopolymers, inks, Anilox Roller, etcetera).
Surface treatments for the paper, aimed at changing its functionality and seeking new properties.
Exploration of technologies related to materials from bio-resources (starches, cellulose, and so on) in packaging.
Internal development of low-cost sensors for monitoring the production process.
A significant part of the research is conducted through qualified collaborations with Universities and Research Institutes.
