Molded Fiber, a UFP Technologies brand, Introduces High Speed Die-Cutting Operations for Recycled Fiber Board Folding Cartons

Clinton, IA - January 14, 2010 - Molded Fiber, a UFP Technologies brand, today announced its new high speed die-cutting operations and access to 100% recycled fiber board material. Molded Fiber now has the capabilities to create folding cartons, boxes and sheets from recycled fiber board using high-speed die-cutters.

The new manufacturing capabilities and material access give Molded Fiber the ability to create lay-flat folding carton solutions. The die-cut recycled fiber board can be manufactured for packaging solutions suitable for health and beauty products, apparel and other retail and consumer goods. One such solution Molded Fiber has created is a "wine tote" folding carton that holds a single wine bottle.

For the past 18 years Molded Fiber has created molded pulp protective packaging solutions requiring relatively high tooling costs and in most cases minimum orders of hundreds of thousands of parts. The addition of high-speed die-cutting to Molded Fiber's manufacturing capabilities provides the flexibility to run smaller volume projects. Minimums for die-cut recycled fiber board solutions are 5,000 units.
