Multipack technology

Nature multipack by KHSAt All4Pack 2016, from 14-17 November, KHS GmbH will be presenting current highlights in plastic and secondary packaging, along with the latest innovations for PET bottle applications.

Nature MultiPack is based on specially developed adhesives which bond PET bottles together to form multipacks. Reducing secondary packaging by as much as 85 per cent, the easily removable adhesive dots leave behind clean bottle surfaces, minimising in-store and in-home packaging waste.

KHS will showcase digitally printed PET bottles at the booth and provide the opportunity to learn more about how Direct Print Powered by KHS. Based on specially developed low-migration LED-UV cure inks, Direct Print combines a secure cloud-based artworks management platform, with off-site sample printing for design and approvals. This technology is capable of 12.000/24.000/36.000 bottles/h.

Flexible systems for sustainable packaging

Sales directly from the pallet without repackaging onto shelves while maintaining excellent presentation and effective advertising placement at the point of sale are key requirements for many customers. The KHS Innopack Kisters DP display packer provides this flexibility for packaging and palletizing while saving materials and resources. It is also available in a block design.

In addition, visitors at All4Pack can find information on innovations such as the KHS InnoPET TriBlock block concept, packaging for the dairy sector and KHS Service. With InnoPET TriBlock, KHS has launched a filling and packaging system for PET bottles to market, which incorporates a stretch blow molder, labeler and filler. With consistent neck handling it also enables lightweight PET bottles to be processed.
