Jetter develops software to reduce film use

Less plastic for peppers

At the moment plastic is getting to be more and more taboo. The material accompanies everyone throughout the day, but as mostly non-recyclable garbage it poisons the seas. The current motto is to do away with plastic.

Sales Manager Michael Feider considers this development to be a very good thing. His company, the Ludwigsburg-based company Jetter, has made a special contribution to the debate with software that allows the consumption of plastic films to be reduced when cucumbers, lettuce or peppers are being packaged. The fact that the new concept is successful also has something to do with the fact that the packaging industry can not only boast about sustainability, but also saves costs.

Basically, the focus of the Neckarweihinger automation company is on glass, Feider told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten: "Every third bottle worldwide may have been produced with machines controlled by Jetter."

The company spokesman Jochen Weyershäuser also talked about the example of peppers in a classic bag of three: There are yellow, green and red fruits juxtaposed and squeezed into a plastic tube that is the same size for everyone. "But things that grow are never standard," he says. So the peppers usually flop around in their transparent bag.
