Upturn in straw production

The market for eco-friendly straws is booming. More and more states and cities are banning plastic straws, which have been completely banned in the EU since 2021. The restaurant business and the food industry are therefore looking for alternatives that are affordable and sustainable, but have similar properties to plastic straws. We can achieve these criteria with the HSM, the world's fastest paper straw production line.

How our expertise benefits you

Tried and tested

We had extensive experience to draw upon when developing the HSM. Körber has been building machines for producing precisely formed paper tubes at high speed for several years now. We are now applying that expertise to paper straws.

Straws keep their shape

The HSM does not use the widespread spiral-wound process, it joins the paper together in two layers in a linear process. This prevents any overlapping. When immersed in liquid, the straws retain their shape and functionality for at least two hours.

Economical on resources

Thanks to its unique process, the HSM consumes up to 50 percent less glue than other straw production lines. This cuts costs and protects the environment.

Perfect combination: how Matrix Pack is using the HSM

One of the largest producers of straws in Europe also uses paper instead of plastic. The Greek company Matrix Pack has purchased three HSMs, and created a perfect combination with existing machines. These give the straws produced by the HSM the bend that many beverage producers are looking for.
