At drinktec 2017, Graphic Packaging International (GPI) will reveal a new packaging machinery system and state-of-the-art robotic integration capabilities for the beverage industry, along with other industry-leading machinery and carton solutions.
For the first time, the company will demonstrate ReShape™, a revolutionary technology capable of creating virtually any pack configuration seamlessly with one piece of packaging equipment. With ReShape, beverage manufacturers can reinvent, reimagine, and ReShape their cartons to produce the shapes and configurations they need today, along with unique structures for the future.
“ReShape opens up many options in beverage packaging,” said Doug Hicks, Director of GPI’s Packaging Machinery Division. “The system can both internally and externally nest primary containers to create a variety of shapes and sizes with the potential to use less fiber. Also, unique handle designs deliver added comfort and strength.”
GPI will also demonstrate state-of-the-art robotic capabilities that integrate with multi-packers for several applications; the AutoMaxx™ high speed, compact system capable of producing both wraps and baskets in a variety of styles; the QuikFlex™300 continuous motion multi-packer as well as innovative carton designs, particularly focused on delivering premium impact through unique shapes, graphics and decoration enhancements to help brands stand out on the shelf.
