Production platforms engineered to make impact

We invented the technology, and together with our machine partners, we develop turnkey production lines to support high output of Dry Molded Fiber products.

Two machine platforms

Built on world-leading know-how

Dry Molded Fiber is a brilliantly simple solution, powerful enough to deal with plastic pollution. Ever since the beginning, our focus has been to make it accessible to a market that is more than ready for sustainable packaging. So, instead of supplying the machinery ourselves, we team up with the world’s best machine builders. Together, we develop standardized machine platforms that cater to the increasing demand for sustainable Dry Molded Fiber products.

THE PULPAC MODULA

Modularity and capacity

Modula is a versatile and modular production line capable of handling high-volume manufacturing. It supports our full range of standardized highway applications as well as tailored designs. Modula is great for producers who need single-line capacity and module flexibility.

THE PULPAC SCALA

Compact and complete

Scala is a hassle-free, plug-and-play machine, that offers every benefit of Dry Molded Fiber. The launch-version comes with tooling for lid production but more applications will follow. Scala is perfect for gaining leverage in a fast-growing market. Start small and scale up.

aspects of

Dry Molded Fiber process

Main resource is generic and available worldwide

Start with pulp

The pulp is milled and fibers are air-laid into a dry web

Mill-to-web

Barriers are applied to meet product requirements and intended use

Apply barrier

Products are formed using heat and pressure in standard plate press with uniquely designed tools

Mold into product

All excess material is fed back into the process

One size won’t fit all

A complete Dry Molded Fiber machine, only in a smaller package.

The PulPac Scala offers all the benefits of Dry Molded Fiber, but in a smaller package — and at a lower investment.

The Scala platform is based on an existing injection molding clamping unit, combined with a new and unique Mill-to-Web fiber unit with integrated material recycling. It ships in a single 40’ container, enabling efficient shipping globally.

Better together

The power of knowledge and beauty of irony

Huarong Group has built injection molding machines for the plastic industry for 40 years. By combining that knowledge with our technology, we repurposed a machine to replace what it was once built to produce.

How to start dry molding?

We’ll take you through the license process and set agreements up. When you’re ready for it, our turnkey partners are the one-stop shops that take orders, assemble the machines, deliver them, and help you get the most out of your equipment.

Ready for you to order from our turnkey partners

As the community of licensees grows, so does our partner network. Today, the Modula is supplied by Curt G. JOA or TechTribe, and the Scala by Huarong Group. Together we’ll get you going with Dry Molded Fiber.

Questions you might have…

Are there any special requirements for the production environment (temperature, humidity)?

Depending on the local climate and time of year, the factory needs to be climate-controlled to control the quality of the products.

Do you supply the machinery?

We do not sell any machinery, but we have turnkey machine partners that do so and can help you make the most out of our production.

How many cavities is possible?

The number of cavities depends on the size/ depth of the cavity or the tonnage of the press.

How many operators are required to run the machinery at full capacity?

The estimated reference values for a production line is 1 to 2 FTE for standard operation.

How much energy is used during the process?

The estimated reference value for a PulPac Modula is ≈145 kW, and PulPac Scala ≈ 50 kW.

Is it possible to have end of line automation to handle finished products?

Yes. Our turnkey machine partners, as well as other machinery partners, have extensive experience in delivering automation solutions suited to your individual needs.

What is the maximum mold area?

The maximum mold area depends on the number of molds, the size of the web and on the tonnage on the press.
