DS Smith Tecnicarton has launched MAX lamination technology. The new solution increases the resistance of corrugated packaging and optimises stacking potential – extending possibilities for reuse as a fully recyclable solution.
The company’s designers superimposed up to ten layers of corrugated board to create MAX technology. This includes standardised special folding creases to achieve a larger box format with increased resistance, and the design has evolved out of a six-wave laminated packaging solution comprised of up to ten channels.
The Magnus-IBC Kraft has a capacity of 1,000 Litres and a resistance of 10,000kg and the bulk packages have been designed as a sustainable and 100% recyclable alternative to traditional plastic Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC).
DS Smith production processes and the companies’ circular economy design metrics approach has resulted in significant improvements to the technology of large laminate packaging casings. These include bespoke ergonomic creases that enable packaging to be assembled easily. They are also foldable and have resulted in significant space saving during supply chain cycles as well as successful reuse cycles, and a reduction in CO2 during transportation. For example, in the automotive sector, Tecnipack cardboard has enabled laminated strips to be re-used up to ten times within the supply chain for transportation between Spain and the U.S. In addition, the resistance offered by lamination technology has made it possible to replace wooden packaging with lighter, cheaper, and completely recyclable100% cardboard packaging.
