Engineering & Industrial
Quality is one of the biggest differentiators in the packaging industry. Other factors matter too of course – cost efficiency, sustainability, lead times – but ultimately if packaging fails the quality test, it can jeopardize a whole run, and a customer relationship with it. In some sectors – pharmaceuticals for example – packaging faults can have even more significant consequences.
EUMOS, the European Safe Logistics Association, today launched the revision of its recognized “test method for load unit rigidity” standard ensuring cargo packed on a Cargo Transport Unit (CTU) will travel even more safely from origin to destination. The new EUMOS 40509:2020 will provide the most precise results in relation to any standard regarding load rigidity developed in the past by adding new evaluation elements with respect to the ones foreseen by the original standard EUMOS 40509 from 2012.
NOVA Chemicals enters high-density biaxially oriented polyethylene market to expand recyclable packaging options
NOVA Chemicals Corporation (NOVA Chemicals) has developed high-density resin technology for the biaxially oriented polyethylene (BOPE) market. HD-BOPE is a transformative technology that enables the manufacture of all-polyethylene, recyclable multilayer film structures with significantly improved physical performance vs blown film. The technology is seen as ideal for use in food packaging, heavy duty sacks, e-commerce and other demanding applications.
Now the European tobacco sector operates a traceability system which gives visibility across the entire supply-chain, via a digital marker on the packaging, according to Swiss headquartered developers Dentsu Tracking.
Inuru, based in Berlin, Germany, has announced a € 2.3 Million Series-A funding round led by the Warsaw based venture capital fund ARIA. It will setup an automated production line to increase production capacities of its recyclable luminous packaging and labelling products. These are capable of lighting up, warning and displaying small animation and even contain videos, in future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted supply chains and consumer behaviors worldwide. It has heightened the awareness of sanitation and is accelerating shifts involving shopper format preference and palletized handling automation. Here are three changes to consider from the pallet usage perspective.
The European Federation of Wooden Pallet & Packaging Manufacturers (FEFPEB) has called for European governments to recognise the wooden pallet and packaging industry as essential to supply chains of vital goods both during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Gaming products are expected to have the labels by the end of this year
Covid-19 brought global supply chain to its knees. But what about the supply chain to fight the very pandemic? Collection of viral swab samples, diagnostic kits, and later, distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, all need a highly resilient and sustainable temperature-controlled supply chain. With over 70 % of 1.3 billion population still living in villages that are poorly connected to main stream transportation and are spread over a geography of 3.2 million square kilometres, temperature-controlled supply chain is a formidable challenge. Pluss Advanced Technologies, an Indian Innovator, ticks all checkboxes with their patented Phase Change Material (PCM) based temperature-controlled packaging- Celsure®, that is designed to provide over 120 hours of backup against the Indian extreme tropical climate without the risk of freezing the products.
3DAG, a Swiss based company specialising in security features using micro and nanotechnology, has announced the launch of SmartPack™ holographic, tamper-proof security labels, based on its holography expertise and AIPIA member Scantrust’s serialized QR codes. The system offers an easy-to-implement, customizable and comprehensive product digitalization solution, they say.
The findings of an independent laboratory testing of Inhance Technologies’ Enkase fluorination barrier technology show that it is fully compatible with the recycling stream of HDPE containers as it does not pose any recyclability issues.
