Amut comi :Reliable suppliersof thermoforming machines

AMUT COMI, member of AMUT GROUP, is a 100% Italian company result of the cooperation between AMUT and COMI who had merged their technological know-how in thermoforming field. Together AMUT thermoforming division, operating since 2002, and the production of the packaging lines of COMI, have created an industrial facility capable of providing plants that, in the international thermoforming scenery, can be distinguished for the sturdy structure and for a running high speed at low energy consumption. AMUT COMI thermoforming machines boast a proven strength and durability also under conditions of cutting of tougher materials such as PET and PP at high speeds.

The great passion for the challenges and the ongoing efforts of the R&D Department make AMUT COMI the ideal partner for thermoformed plastics manufacturers. AMUT COMI designs and manufactures special solutions dedicated to specific products: it works on a constantly improvements of its machines to always meet the needs of the market.

The technological know-how in extrusion enables AMUT COMI to supply complete in-line plants and “turnkey projects” with the relative auxiliary equipment (rimming machines  for PP or HIPS, pre-heaters for PP foil; multi-axis stackers; stacking manipulators, automatic units to convey the formed products to the subsequent operations, end line automated systems).

Innovative design criteria are the strength of AMUT COMI: to give an example, F series is distinguished for its modular structure, which allows to add one or more stations in a second time, satisfying the productive requirements of the customers.

F and V series include a pressure or vacuum forming and steel rule die cutting, technology suitable for the production of trays, plates, lids, containers, plant pots, using every thermoplastic material. The number of station can be chosen, from 3 up to 4: forming, punching, steel rule die cutting and stacking unit.

AMP, FTV and PA1000 series are fit for processing materials with barrier layers and general purpose thermoplastic (PP, GPPS, HIPS, PET, PLA, PVC), with simultaneously forming and punching technology, divided into tilting or vertically movable. GLE series include forming and punching in two different stations, suitable for manufacturing disposable products, such as cups, vending, in Hips.

AMUT COMI counts in its range also special machines for peculiar requests: FTLT series is able to produce thermoformed panels for cooling towers (PVC or PP) and FFG-E e VK-C series PS foam packaging.
