CONSUMPTION REDUCTION IN REGARDS TO PACKAGING MATERIAL, ENERGY, WATER AND CHEMICALS HAS FAR-REACHING POSITIVE EFFECTS IN TERMS OF REDUCED COSTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Making a bottle lighter is one thing, doing it without affecting its beverage protection, aesthetics and appeal to customers is the real challenge. Our packaging engineers enable producers to significantly decrease the use of PET resin while maintaining packaging performance, durability and appearance. We call this "rightweighting".
Creating the perfect bottle
It starts with a thorough analysis of your product and brand aspirations. Our engineers can adjust the bottle shape and weight, adapt a short neck finish for lightweight closure, and design the most suitable preform for the right mechanical bottle resistance. They also help define the appropriate heating and blowing process recipe. The optimal weight distribution is ensured by the unique preform neck protection in the oven, integrated quality-control systems and auto adjustment functionalities - none of which jeopardise the mechanical bottle performance.
Tailored for hygiene
The hot filler's filling environment can be tailored to meet the hygiene level required while reducing energy and water consumption. The reduced enclosure configuration lowers the volume of the filling area compared to the standard configuration by 72%. Less filtered air and fewer chemicals are required to maintain a hygienic and safe filling area.
