How to changeover to tethered
In most equipment a chuck cones replacement will be enough to run these new caps.
AROL alongside the bottlers: Coca-Cola experience
In the last months AROL has been cooperating with Coca-Cola, together with several closures manufactures in the validation process of the new GME 30.40 CSD (carbonated soft drinks) PET finish, both at laboratory level (c/o AROL premises) and at industrial level (c/o CCEP production line in Barcelona plant Spain).
GME 30.40 (CETIE code) PET finish is the first international standard specifically developed for tethered closures to be compliant with SUP EU Directive.
The industrial trial in CCEP Barcelona plant involved the production of more 6 million sellable bottles 500 ml size closed with new 26/22 CSD tethered closures.
Talk to AROL
Since 2019, AROL tethered focus group is cooperating within CETIE SUP Working Group (composed by mains EU bottlers, bottling lines-packaging-closures manufactures) in the development and validation of tethered solutions.
AROL is ready to study and minimize the impact of this change on bottling lines, thanks to the experience of thousands of caps sorters and capping equipment installed in Europe and all over the world.
