So simple, so productive

Offering potential for a wide variety of filling styles as well as a range of cup designs and materials, plus straight or conical in-mould labelling, the EF 320 ensures simplicity and excellent productivity.

Customised designs can be evaluated to enhance the value and appearance of the product, in terms of filling styles and cup design.

Cups can be designed cost-effectively with many labelling solutions and freedom of cup geometry. Not only a marketing tool, the label also strengthens the cup’s sidewall stability, enabling a thinner bottom web resulting in lower material costs.
