Perforated snap caps for ready-to-eat meals

Ready-to-eat meals are becoming increasingly popular and are used as a convenient means to prepare a quick but tasty lunch or snack. Precooked food is often taken to the office where it only needs to be warmed up in a microwave. To reduce the efforts of the consumer to a minimum, Henke offers snap caps that suit the needs of ready-cooked food perfectly. Once the peel-off seal has been removed, the snap cap can be re-applied to the cup and placed in the microwave. During the heating process, the warm air stays inside while the perforated surface prevents the expanding air from causing an “explosion”.


To add a personal touch to your cap, you can choose from almost any colour that exists – or you decide to emboss your logo or the name of the product into the cap. It remains without saying that both can be used at the same time. Our handy closure can be obtained in either HDPE or PP, which ensures adequate stability.


If you want to offer your savoury meals in a practical but at the same time visually attractive packaging, please feel free to contact us.



An easy way to close and dose powders

We nowadays use powders in many of our daily routines. These include not only milk powder, baby food and protein powders but also coffee and others. Henke provides a convenient and user-friendly solution to dose the powders for all these application areas: Measuring spoon and lid are one. Now you don't have to search for the appropriate spoon – it is always just there. Once the spoon has been removed, it can easily be clipped in again for the next use. The temper-evident seal thereby guarantees the impeccable quality of the good inside.


When it comes to the design, we are able to tailor the cap to your wishes and requirements. Apart from the colour, we can also customise the sizes (and volumes) of the spoons. To add a personal touch to your cap, it is possible to decorate these with In-Mould labels and/or embossing. Right now we offer the spoon-in-lid made from PP only in the 127mm version. Still, we are planning to extend this to the 99mm cap, as well.


If you are interested in this everyday helper, do not lose time but contact us. We are looking forward to discussing your requirements.




Successful trade fair presentation of Lonacap at the Hannover Messe 2016

Hannover Messe 2016Between 25th and 29th April, the Hannover Messe brought together more than 5.200 exhibitors from all over the world. Following the lead theme “Integrated Industry”, the world’s biggest industrial fair attracted more than 190,000 professional visitors, which were offered numerous specialized lectures and presentations of the latest innovations. As a matter of course, our business unit Lonacap was also present and exhibited its products within the sub-fair “Industrial Supply”.


We are very grateful for the abundance of good talks with our existing customers and really enjoyed to foster our well-established business relationships. In addition, we were able to get in contact with several potential new customers. The fair provided us the possibility to discuss requirements and desires for new, individual projects of both our existing and potential customers in much detail. These inputs were appreciated a lot and will be pursued in close cooperation with our clients.


Sustainability as the central theme

This year we focused our presentation at the HMI on our products made of bio-degradable plastics. At this point, we can already produce a substantial part of our product range from these alternative, environmentally-friendly materials. Like this, we can play our part to minimize the problematic disposal of traditional plastics. It is not only the option to colour these  materials with bio-degradable masterbatches that makes it a real alternative to conventional plastics; the “green” caps and plugs can also convince when it comes to more substantial features, such as processibility.


If you wart to know more about our bio-degradable products, please take at look here or contact us directly.
