Which is the major subject you are currently focusing on?
UNISTA is developing a revolutionary new packing system that will allow our customers to benefit from extraordinary flexibility and speed. We are currently working on a patent for this solution.
We also have another exciting announcement to make. In order to offer automated packaging solutions for complete lines, UNISTA is starting a collaboration with UNILOGO, a Polish company offering filling, capping and labelling machines. Together we offer our customers flexible "turnkey" production lines where all elements are perfectly matched. One of the strengths of our new lines is simplified line management, allowing the change of production format in just a few minutes.
But that's not all... I can't reveal too much about it, but UNISTA is working on a project that as yet has no equivalent on the world market. But for the time being this must remain a secret...
What is your strategy to answer the increasing demand from both the industries and the consumers, in terms of sustainable development / eco-design ?
Environmental friendliness begins for us in design: we reduce our impact on the environment by choosing sustainable and recyclable materials such as glass and metal.
Our philosophy is to design extremely flexible and reliable equipment that can be operated by our customers autonomously for years with a minimum of spare parts, thus contributing to the reduction of waste in production.
Our solutions can easily adapt to changes in the market thanks to their flexibility, but they are also transformable and modular: if a customer decides to replace one machine with another, it is possible to reuse certain elements or add modules to their existing machine.
Today we are already looking at solutions that we can offer to manufacturers who want to reduce their plastic packaging. We are well on our way to sustainable development.
Why did you choose to take part in ALL4PACK 2020 ? / Which kind of decision makers do you meet there ?
As UNISTA is one of the leaders of customised robotic solutions in France, ALL4PACK is one of our flagship exhibitions. Its format attracts many of our customers and also allows us to meet new prospects.
For us, it is an opportunity to keep our customers up to date on our latest innovations and draw their attention by presenting our machines in motion.
