Long established in the electronics industry, molded fiber packaging is becoming increasingly important in the furniture, mechanical engineering and automotive sectors. The environmentally-friendly packaging, with its excellent shock and vibration absorption properties, is the inexpensive alternative to foamed plastic packaging for stringent requirements.
The molded fiber packaging is made from 100% recycled paper. The precisely molded shaped parts are used as cushioned packaging, supports for product sets, trays or as edge protection.
Individually customized fiber forms ensure reliable protection of a variety of products. The specially-adapted packaging ensures that the product is held firmly. The qualities of special packaging development offers optimal cushioned protection and reliably absorbs shocks and vibrations.

Manufacture of molded fiber packaging
Our molded fiber packaging is made from virtually 100% waste paper. Paper and cardboard – previously shredded in a water bath – form the base material, also called pulp. The pulp assumes specific shapes by siphoning and pressing the raw material from the water bath. This creates a moist basic shape.
This is dried over a certain period of time at a high temperature in order to remove the residual moisture. The combination of the proverbial ‘baking and pressing’ at high pressure gives the material its high strength, making it ideal for use as a dimensionally-stable packaging material.
Examples of application and common industries
The best-known example of molded fiber packaging is the standard egg carton. Due to its excellent shock and vibration absorption properties, the packaging has also found its way into other industries.
- Medical technology
- Furniture industry
- Automotive industry
- Measurement and control technology
- High-end computer, audio and television industry Fiber mold for fragile bottlesFibre molds stackedFiber mold for glass
