About watttron

watttron is the inventor of digital heating systems cera2seal and cera2heat. Where cera2heat was developed for thermoforming applications, cera2seal was specifically developed to help the flexible packaging industry process sustainable materials without loss of productivity or quality, whilst saving energy. A growing number of global brand owners are relying on cera2seal technology with full temperature control on individual pixel level to improve their productivity. Early 2022 watttron introduced a new podcast series called Packolution (available on all platforms), in which international stakeholders from Nestle, Kraft-Heinz, Cargill, World Packaging Organisation, Suez and Constantia, to name just a few share their views on packaging. The German based company meanwhile opened an office in the USA to service their growing customer base in North America.
