Deliver state of the art decoration solutions to customers globally. By providing efficient printing equipment for lifelike colors and optimal recycling of rigid packaging.
Get to zero packaging waste.
Van Dam Machine builds robust, which is resulting in a long lifetime and less replacement of parts. In fact, our printers are still in production from the 80s and 90s. Besides this, the printers are equipped with several features to reduce waste during set-up or production. Also, the reduction of energy consumption is major design point. For instance, so is Kinetic energy returned to the power grid when it’s reducing the printing speed.
Over the last 5 years Van Dam Machine has invested in reducing our footprint.
Not only are our company cars 100% electric, but we have switched to LED lighting in the workshop and offices, reducing waste through recycling and reusing materials. Van Dam Machine has made sustainability a top priority.
Plastic recycling refers to the process of recovering plastic waste and reprocessing the materials into functional and useful products.
The goal of recycling plastic is to reduce high rates of plastic pollution while putting less pressure on virgin materials to produce brand new plastic products. This approach helps to conserve resources and diverts plastics from landfills and unintended destinations such as oceans. Downcycling is the process in which used, and often unused products are recycled and refabricated to produce new items thereby contributing to sustainability goals.
De-inking is the industrial process of removing printing ink from plastic surfaces in recycling and converting companies.
The key in the deinking process is the ability to detach ink from the plastic surface. This is achieved by a combination of mechanical action and chemical means. Due to this process, it obtains a product with a quality similar to that of virgin plastic. Therefore, it can be used in the same applications as a new material.
In collaboration with the University of Wageningen and the major ink suppliers to study the de-inking process.
Sustainability is increasingly a key decision point for brand-owners and retailers in the selection of the decoration technology.
Most recently Van Dam Machine has revolutionized the decoration of molded fiber.
The handling of Molded Fiber and the printing on this substrate were a challenge but together with our partners we have achieved success.
Besides this, Van Dam Machine invested in the recycling of printed plastic cups. Also, We are in contact with plastic recyclers and actively joined several recycling discussion groups / workshops. For example, we started a de-inking study together with University of Wageningen and the major ink suppliers.
