Gable top cartons can be difficult to stack because the top does not offer sufficient stacking strength. Polypack has created a system for making stackable gable top multipacks, using vertical risers to provide the support needed for stacking and palletizing. As the products are collated, a vertical riser is inserted between the rows of cartons. The collated products are then shrink wrapped, resulting in a gable top multipack that can be stacked and palletized without using milk crates!
Unlike other systems for packaging tapered cups, Polypack's system does not use any glue whatsoever. There's no glue material, no glue contracts, and no corrugated contracts to worry about. This is achieved with our unique method for collating and creating the pad-pack.
Printed film is the perfect solution for retail packaging. It offers a large, continuous surface on which to place product imagery and branding. This eliminates the concern about the orientation of the individual products. High quality printed shrink film also offers significant cost savings when compared to traditional packaging such as RSCs. Printed film retail packs offer increased shelf appeal when compared to products that are wrapped in clear film. We offer printed film wrappers for both total closure and bullseye wraps.
The JacketPack™ is an ideal alternative to RSC packaging. The JacketPack™ consists of a band of corrugate that is formed around the products and glued on a single flap. The jacketed products are then shrink wrapped to create a completely enclosed pack. The JacketPack™ provides stacking strength and corner protection to a wide range of products, and saves up to 50% on material costs when compared to traditional RSCs.
Polypack manufactures shrink wrap equipment for aseptic cartons of all types. We offer equipment solutions for clear and printed film and we also offer an optional washdown package. We can handle all of the various types of aseptic cartons including bricks, prisms and gable tops. We offer machines that can run aseptic containers unsupported, pad supported, tray supported, in our patent pending JacketPack™, or in a wraparound case.
