Tetra Pak unveils packaging developments

Tetra Pak unveils packaging…
Tetra Pak's innovations deliver faster response times for customers in meeting changing consumer needs whilst minimising packaging equipment investment.

The company is launching a One-Step Opening on the Tetra Evero Aseptic, the world's first aseptic carton bottle for ambient white milk. The Tetra Evero Aseptic OSO offers double safety features due to the tamper evidence ring and a neck membrane that is removed by twisting the cap. In addition to these safety features, the Tetra Evero Aseptic with OSO enables customers to offer consumers an easy to open, handle and pour from carton bottle.

The second innovation is the TBA/19 Retrofitability Kit, which allows customers to transform the package shape and base area on the same machine platform, a world first in the aseptic carton packaging industry. Customers with the TBA/19 filling machine for 200 Slim, 250 Base and 125 Slim will soon be able to retrofit their existing filling lines, enabling them to produce the new Tetra Brik Aseptic 200 and 250 Edge. For those with this machine who are not yet ready to invest in the Tetra Pak A3/Compact Flex filling machine, this solution gives them the option of producing these packages for a fraction of the cost. In addition, the retrofitability kit takes less time to install than a new machine, which means products get to market faster.

The last development is the new Tetra Pak A3/Speed filling machine, now available for Tetra Prisma Aseptic 200 and 250 portion packs. The Tetra Pak A3/Speed iLine is the fastest line available from Tetra Pak, with a maximum production capacity of 24,000 portion packs per hour.
