DUSSELDORF, Germany, May 4, 2017 — At Interpack, Cloud Packaging Solutions, Hall 12/ B03, will demonstrate publicly for the first time, their new Hydroforma 165 soluble pod machine. The 165 is one of three next-generation Hydroforma machines, bringing a host of refinements and new patented features enabling packaged goods companies to create innovative new dry and liquid pod-based products.
Already the leader in soluble pod technology, these enhanced Cloud Hydroforma models continue to set the pace for speed, minimal scrap, product quality, and operating efficiency. The Hydroforma 165 is the smallest footprint Hydroforma yet, placing this technology within grasp of small to midsize manufacturers and markets.
Patented Hydroforma improvements include new cavity designs, enhanced multi-cavity capacities, expanded liquid and dry material handling, and speeds of up to 2,200 pods per minute.
Familiar to consumers as a single dose solution for dishwasher and laundry soaps, industry analysts believe the pod market holds greater potential. As the industry leader, Cloud predicts a bright future for this rapidly evolving technology.
