  • SPI Glue Application System enables precision application of glue to each straw.
  • Eco-friendly straws can be produced at 3-11mm diameter, and 125-250mm length.
  • Dimensions and quality of straws are controlled individually, with faults recognised and rejected mid-production.
  • Waste is minimised, through the controlled tension of bobbins.

Make the Switch to Tembo’s Paper Straw Machine

All around the world, public attitudes to single-use plastic products and packaging are changing. Research from New York University found that consumers are increasingly rewarding brands offering sustainable products. Meanwhile, across the EU, disposable plastic straws will be restricted from 2021 – and other countries are following suit. 

Take the opportunity to transform your production line to compostable and sustainable paper straws. At Tembo Paper, we are uniquely placed to help you make the transition.
