New cutting devices for the joke Fermant


Are you the owner of a Fermant machine? We would like to introduce you to an innovation that will simplify and expedite your packaging processes!

In close collaboration with users, we have developed a new cutting device for the Fermant series. You can choose between a clean cut automatically or manually, making it suitable for everyone.

Manual cutting device - HSV

The manual cutting device has been redesigned and is available for almost every Fermant model. We have placed special emphasis on ease of use - check out the video for a closer look. The cutting device can be purchased with a new machine at the time of purchase or as a retrofit kit for existing machines, starting from €270.

Pneumatic cutting device - PSV

If you prefer a more comfortable option, our pneumatic cutting device is the right choice. This automatic cutting device can be variably activated, ensuring a fast and comfortable cut. It is particularly recommended for machines with long welding seams.


The joke-Group donates €10,000 to Tafel Lohmar

Herkenrath: "Many people need help and rely on the support of the Tafel," says Udo Fielenbach, CEO of the joke group in Bergisch Gladbach and a resident of Lohmar Birk. "We want to help and support the Tafel."

The increasing cost of living, especially prices for food, electricity, and gas, is causing more and more people to reach their limits and seek assistance from Tafel.

A large number of refugees from Ukraine also turn to the Tafel, resulting in a significant increase in demand nationwide last year. The desperate situation of many Tafels has led some of them to even impose admission restrictions. However, Tafel Lohmar can continue to operate without admission restrictions due to the generous donations from the people of Lohmar.

The donation was handed over at the company's location in Herkenrath. The representatives of Tafel Lohmar, Eva Bauer, Manfred Kauschke, and Werner Zuber, received the check from Udo and Alex Fielenbach.

Dear business partners,

Progress means evolution!

Joke Folienschweißtechnik GmbH is your reliable partner in plastics conversion for over 80 years now. Our founders Josef Joisten and Robert Kettenbaum believed in their idea and set us on our way.

Since 2010, Udo Fielenbach is head of the firm and guides us through trying times. 

The times they are a-changing...

New technologies and materials offer new opportunities, while markets are getting thoroughly international. Sealing technology remains our core competence, but it is far from all we can do. Hence our decision to express the progression of our firm in its public representation.

From September 1st 2022 we will carry a new name:

Joke Folienschweißtechnik becomes joke mechanix GmbH.

New name, new logo – that’s all we’re changing. We will continue to be on your side with the accustomed top-level quality and commitment. Our sales team is looking forward to your enquiries and is ready to find customized solutions for your production requirements.

Always up to a challenge!

Location, contacts and phone numbers remain the same, as will email addresses and banking details.
