Given that the Interpack 2008 trade fair in Düsseldorf will be focusing on “processes and packaging”, there are three companies whose presence would be sorely missed. Fortunately, Corpoplast and Plasmax from Hamburg and Asbofill from Neuss will all be there between 24th and 30th April to show off their expertise in the fields of stretch blow moulding, PET bottle development, barrier coating and aseptic filling technologies. The three companies will be sharing a stand (No. A89) in Hall 13 and it is easy to see why when you consider how the organisations and their products perfectly complement one another, particularly for the packaging of sensitive goods such as juices or dairy products.
“Value-added bottling” is the concept that binds the three companies together. With its “Bottles & Shapes” solutions, Corpoplast is able to develop bottles that both match its customers’ requirements perfectly and boast the lowest weights that can technically be achieved. The modular BLOMAX stretch blow moulding machines score top marks, not least in terms of their energy consumption levels for air and heating requirements.
With its PLASMAX technology, the company can offer optimum and completely transparent barrier solutions for all relevant sectors of the food and beverages industry. The PET container, which is coated with a wafer-thin and inert glass layer, is 100% recyclable and makes a cost-effective and efficient packaging solution for sensitive products.
The name Asbofill is synonymous with flexible, linear aseptic filling machines for the PET and HDPE sector. These machines are characterised by the minimal amount of space required by their aseptic zone, which is just 0.9 m³.
Under their motto of “Value-added bottling”, the companies intend to let their many years of experience and considerable expertise within the world of PET applications shine through at the trade fair, along with the comprehensive added value that they are able to provide from bottle development through to the filling process.
