GN Thermoforming Equipment, a Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada-based manufacturer of servo-driven, roll-fed thermoforming machines for the production of plastic packaging, announced the development of a new form, cut, stack thermoformer that targets low- to medium-volume production runs for packaging for the food, medical and industrial markets. The GN580 Thermoformer is a smaller version of the company’s GN800. The GN580 adapts many of the same unique features of the GN800 and handles all thermoformable grades of PET, OPS, HIPS, PLA, PP and PVC. Initial plans call for the GN580 Thermoformer to be shown this year at the K 2019 exhibition Oct. 16-23 in Dusseldorf, Germany. For more information, visit www.gncanada.com.
