We provide smart system solutions for complex thin-walled and IML applications. Minimum cycle times, additional material reductions with simultaneous premium availability and quality are key to effectively reducing your unit costs.

Your benefits

Actively maximize productivity

Our high performance machines increase your output. Your production line runs reliably in continuous long-term operation with minimum cycle times and peak precision.

Sustainably safeguard the future

Our process engineering department has long been preoccupied with reducing the weight of plastic packaging and ever thinner wall thicknesses. The new EU packaging directive heralds an increasing focus on processing progressively higher proportions of recyclates in food contact packaging in the coming years. With Netstal you have the ideal partner at your side.

Sustainably minimize unit costs

Our leading technology and decades of experience in packaging applications combine to specifically reduce your unit costs and increase your ability to compete in a competitive market environment.

Meaningfully reduce energy costs

Thanks to kinetic energy recuperation combined with an energy-optimized drive unit with optional adaptive system pressure reduction, our ELION and ELIOS series machines impress with the lowest energy consumption in competitive comparison. You save energy costs and simultaneously reduce your production’s ecological footprint.

Sustainably increase availability

Our recipe to successfully increase your system availability: Reliable technology that functions at maximum speed with peak precision in 24/7 operation. In the unlikely event of a problem, you can always fall back on our global service network. Being localized, we can provide support either on-site or online.

"We have been working with Netstal machines for many years. With Netstal, we consistently produce with maximum efficiency. In addition to the quality of the machines, we appreciate the excellent customer service."

Life Cycle Services

Installation

Our highly motivated team will ensure the quick and professional installation of your system.

Training

Well-trained operators are the cornerstone of successful system utilization.

Remote Support

Our state-of-the-art remote maintenance solution provides support as early as commissioning and the ramp-up phase.

Commissioning

Our specialists install your system on site, train your operators and carry out trial and acceptance runs with them.

Spare part packages

Even before your system is up and running, we coordinate customized spare parts packages for your specific application.

Training courses

Well-trained operators ensure a high level of production and machine safety. Netstal offers a comprehensive training program at the company training center as well as customized training at your location.

Troubleshooting

A functional fault may result in a loss of capacity, lower product quality and reduced productivity. Our optimally trained technicians and tightly woven global service network enable us to provide fast rectification.

Preventive maintenance

Preventative maintenance largely averts unplanned and expensive downtime.

Remote Support

Our state-of-the-art teleservice allows us to directly access your system for swift troubleshooting and support.

Hotline

If technical problems or machine failures occur, a quick and competent solution is paramount. We support you with our technical know-how and commitment to quickly get your system up and running again.

Machine relocation

During the long service life of a system it may need to be relocated from one production site to another. Our service specialists provide customized services from a single source ranging from internal machine relocation to complex plant relocation.

Spare parts service

Ensuring our customers obtain original spare parts as quickly as possible when needed is the number one priority of our spare parts department. Our proactive spare parts management advises and helps select the requisite spare and wear parts.

Maintenance and repairs

Only a regularly serviced system will enable you to attain a reliable level of production when running at capacity. Regular maintenance preserves the value of the system and prevents expensive machine downtime. Netstal offers you the commensurate maintenance programs.

Inspection

To err on the side of caution, have your system inspected by our specialists. Using the requisite special tools and measuring equipment, we can quickly analyze the condition of your system and promptly carry out any necessary maintenance work. Using a checklist, we examine the system’s electrical, hydraulic and mechanical components as well as its safety technology. The resulting reports provide details of any need for spare parts or further action.
