In these unprecedented times we have all had to find new ways of working and the packaging sector is no exception.

Plastic, aluminium or paper, die-cut lids are used across a range of packaging pots and containers for dairy, beverage, confectionary and snack products. Produced with only a 0.25mm excess on pot size, die-cut lids provide a much neater and more professional pack than other sealing processes such as ‘cut & seal’ systems.

Recess lids for easy application and a secure seal

Certain products, particularly non-food items, require a specialist lidding solution such as recess lids which offer easy application and are 100 percent tamper proof. Recess lids are predominantly used for non-food, high value products in the agricultural, equine, marine and chemical sectors where product security is essential and production volumes are relatively low.
