06 21, 2011

Shrink is the most commonly used as secondary packaging for PET containers. The objective of the work developed by Krones AG has been generating an economical alternative to shrink, looking for both the development of the system of secondary packaging and the associated machinery for carrying it out. In this way, the company has been able to take advantage of the technology of strapping as tested and successfully used in other sectors, thereby creating a completely new packaging for PET packaging design. Users will benefit in the reduction of costs to decrease the amount of film used, some estimates are higher to 50 percent savings.
