COVERIS RIGID AT EASYFAIRS PACKAGING INNOVATIONS EXHIBITION

Monday, January 26th, 2015

A team of representatives from across Europe will be on hand to discuss packaging requirements with all visitors to the show, with expert knowledge in all aspects of thermoforming, in-mould label injection moulding and cap and closure manufacture.
Along with the established product ranges, Coveris will be presenting innovative new product lines which add real value, significantly improve product protection and shelf life and enhance on shelf appeal of food products.

Coveris Rigid has recently invested in a new technology called thermoforming in-mould labelling (TIML) which is a combination of thermoforming and in-mould labelling decoration in one production step only. This new technology creates a product with an excellent aesthetic, great barrier properties and significantly improved costs over comparable existing technologies.

Coveris’ NEOCELL® range of form-fill-seal sheets (FFS) improve margins in this competitive field through a novel process of manufacture. With the latest innovation NEOCELL PP+, consituting the first thermoformed and breakable polypropylene sheet, all the benefits of regular PS FFS film with improved price stability, excellent thermoforming capabilities and a significant CO2 footprint reduction has been achieved and awarded with the Packaging Oscar in 2014.

Alongside its existing dairy caps and closures, including the lightest 38mm cap currently on the market (known as ‘Bantam’ cap at 1.2grams), Coveris will be showcasing another innovation in this field: 38mm 3 and 2 start tamper evident closures, manufactured with continuous compression moulding technology, which breaks all boundaries with its low weight (2.3grams).
