Production departments

Activities & products

In medical extrusion, we produce just about all types of plastic tubes used for medical applications of all kinds, such as (open) heart surgery, kidney dialysis, catheters, infusions, chemo, ... and tubes used in surgery, gastric drainage or to transport gases during oxygen administration or anesthesia.

Working in this department

As a cleanroom operator in our medical extrusion department, you are responsible for producing medical plastic tubes and packaging them according to fixed instructions & procedures in a strictly hygienic environment (the cleanroom).

You operate the winding machines, perform various precision measurements to achieve a quality product, and are responsible for independently running the production line.

You monitor production parameters during the production process and make adjustments when necessary.

You identify quality issues and take appropriate corrective action, and you are responsible for the correct packaging of the final product.

Activities & products

Production within our film department takes place in 2 separate cleanrooms. Here, we produce high-barrier film (blister packaging), mostly for medication packaging.

Given the specific properties that we can impart to these films, numerous other applications and developments are possible, often within the pharmaceutical and medical sectors.

In one cleanroom, we start from plastic pellets to produce high-quality, usually transparent, packaging film using (co-)extrusion with separate technology. This film can contain up to 9 layers in a single process.

In the other room, various plastic films are laminated together and cut to the correct width (slitting).

Working in this department

During laminating, you operate machines where various film layers are bonded together. You are responsible for independently operating the laminator, setting, monitoring, and adjusting production parameters as necessary.

You are accountable for the high quality of the film and oversee the smooth progress of the production process, promptly detecting any quality issues.

During slitting, you cut the produced film to the predetermined width and then wind it onto a core. Subsequently, you package the product according to the specified requirements.

Activities & products

In this department, various plastic raw materials are mixed (= blended) with the desired colors and additives and transported to the different production lines.

This is also where material (the raw material) is recovered from non-conforming products, from production startups, from the residues after punching, etc., and processed back into reusable pure raw material (= grinding).

This allows us to recover a significant amount of raw materials, which has both economic benefits and a positive environmental impact.

Working in this department

As a mix operator, your responsibility is to supply various types of raw materials to the production lines. This is largely done through an automated installation, which the mix operator sets up and operates. Here, the different raw materials are mixed in the correct proportions and optionally supplemented with additives in the right doses.

For some productions, manual intervention is necessary. You then transport the raw materials using the electric pallet jack. You independently operate the automatic weighing installations and clean the mixers according to a fixed procedure. You ensure accurate data entry into our central computer system each time.

As a grinding operator, you are responsible for recovering raw materials from non-conforming production. For this, you work with grinding mills, which you fill manually, but you also work with fully automatic installations, which you operate, set up, and monitor. You clean the grinding mills and the spacious work environment according to a fixed procedure.

You are responsible for clear and correct identification (on devices, barrels, big bags, etc.) and storage of the recovered material in the racks.

Activities & products

In this department, we manufacture tubes from various types of plastics that find their application in the aerosol and packaging industries.

With a market share of around 90%, we are the international leader in riser tubes for aerosol sprays (paints, hairspray, lubricants, whipped cream, perfume, lotions, nasal and throat sprays, etc.), dispensers (hand pumps with disinfectant gel, soaps, hand creams, etc.), as well as for atomizers (cleaning and disinfection, plant spraying, etc.).

Additionally, we produce refills for ballpoint pens, casings for markers, needle sheaths, irrigation tubes for gardening and greenhouse construction, and so forth...

Working in this department

Jobs at the production lines where the tubes are wound:

As a spool line operator, your responsibility is to (automatically) wind tubes onto spools, assemble empty spools, and remove full spools from the winder to stack them on pallets.

  • You are solely responsible for the complete quality of the wound tubes, including inner and outer diameter, wall thickness, etc., with very high precision.
  • You have both digital and analog measuring equipment at your disposal. As soon as the quality deviates from the requirements, you adjust your process yourself to rectify the errors.
  • You work autonomously on one or two spool lines.

As a spool sticker, you prepare the various types of spools (in cardboard or plastic) used by the spool line operator at the winding machines.

  • You independently request the necessary materials for each type from the warehouse, stick (or don't stick) the flanges together, and form the spools yourself, with the correct cores.
  • Since the spool lines run on different types of spools, you will timely supply enough spools to ensure continuous production.

Jobs at the production lines where the tubes are cut:

As a cut line operator, you will keep 2 production lines running.

  • You inspect the quality and adjust the process as needed.
  • You will regularly insert new cutting blades and make minor adjustments to the process.
  • During production changes, you set up the line, adjust all parameters correctly, and ensure optimal product quality by measuring and readjusting.
  • You work very autonomously, alongside the packers.

As a packer, you will correctly manually pack our tubes into cardboard boxes, use and shape the correct packaging (boxes, bags), label them correctly, and stack them on pallets.

  • While packing, you visually inspect the product for quality and deliver a high-quality product.

Activities & products

This department is divided into a 'rubber stamping department' and a 'plastic stamping department', depending on the raw material used.

In these departments, up to 100 million seals are produced daily from rubber and other plastic strips, mostly for export.

The rubber seals are mainly supplied to industries for aerosols (various spray cans; perfume & deodorant, medication, food, paint, lubricants, etc.).

Plastic seals are stamped in a conditioned environment with strict hygiene requirements. These are used in various packaging applications; pumps for soap, gels, creams, sauces, ..., atomizers, screw caps, etc.

Due to the high precision and possible post-treatment of these seals, we can meet the very high quality requirements of the customer.

Working in this department

As a press operator, your responsibility is to manufacture seals from plastic or rubber bands.

  • Your primary task is to keep the presses running to ensure high production quantities.
  • You mount the plastic or rubber rolls to be processed on the presses, shape the packaging, label it, and operate the presses.
  • You monitor production through precise measurements (up to 0.01mm accuracy) and visual quality assessment using a microscope and projector, and you address the root cause of any quality issues.
  • During production changeovers, you request the necessary raw materials and packaging from the warehouse and make the necessary adjustments.

As a post-processing operator, you are responsible for washing and tumbling the seals.

  • You pour the stamped seals into bags to be treated in a washing machine, or you place them in tumblers to achieve the desired degree of purity.
  • You correctly set the production parameters of the tumblers and washing machines and ensure the sampling of the seals for quality control.
  • You handle the final packaging and labeling of the finished product.

As a rubber grinder, your task is to bring rubber strips to the correct thickness and roughness.

  • You request the necessary goods from the warehouse, check and set the parameters of your machines.
  • You grind rubber to the desired thickness and cut it to the desired width.
  • You ensure a continuous production process by timely supplying the rubber to the presses.
  • For our traceability requirements, you maintain accurate records with the required internal document flow.

As a die grinder, you are responsible for assembling and disassembling our stamping dies and their parts, sharpening (surface grinding, boring) the cutting parts, performing mechanical corrections to dies, and replacing defective or worn parts.

  • You assist in resolving production problems in consultation with the press operator and work independently, efficiently, and with great precision, up to 5 microns.

Activities & products

In this department, plastic strips are produced, including in foamed form (Triseal®), from which seals are later stamped.

These products can be found, among other places, in the lids of jars containing day cream, medication, etc., as well as in screw caps for various liquids, in atomizers, and in pumps.

In a second hall, there are EPE (Expanded Polyethylene) installations where we produce low-density foamed strips, primarily for the packaging industry (soft disks in screw caps, with or without aluminum coating) but also for laminate underlayment.

Working in this department

As a line operator, your responsibility is to produce various types of plastic strips.

  • After training, you independently operate the extruders, winders, and auxiliary equipment to ensure good production.
  • Using measurement results from specific measuring equipment (up to 0.01mm accuracy) and visual assessment, you inspect the product, identify the root cause of any quality issues, and take appropriate corrective actions.
  • You ensure proper packaging, labeling, and stacking of the finished product on pallets.
  • During production changeovers or startups, you independently set up the production line, adjust production parameters, and correct them to ensure optimal product quality.
