Bonduelle new can

 

After 10 years in development, Europe’s leading vegetable canner, Bonduelle, has launched a new food can that delivers enhanced consumer appeal, together with significant environmental benefits. The packaging from Ardagh Group represents a significant advance in drawn walled and ironed (DWI) can production and processing technology. 

In developing a completely new steel can, Ardagh Group has taken DWI food can production technology to a new level. The company has been able to use nitrogen dosing techniques, similar to those used in the beverage industry, for the first time in food canning.

Best in class standards have also been set in lightweighting to provide environmental savings and increase sustainability. Unlike many other materials, metal is 100 percent recyclable. Metal cans are a suitable container for preventing food spoilage and do so without preservatives, refrigeration or freezing.

New design features have also enhanced the can’s appeal to the consumer. Beading on the can has been removed to form a more premium look and feel to the packaging. The new sleek surface of the can allows for premium label application or for direct printing onto the can.

A further benefit to the consumer, as identified by consumer research, is the sense of freshness that comes on opening the can, created by the ‘psshhtt’ sound effect of the vacuum release.

Worth the weight of the Eiffel Tower
The new 400g can uses 15 percent less material than the current best in class can thanks largely to an astounding 43 percent reduction in the can wall thickness. Ardagh estimates that if 1 billion cans were to convert to the new design, the material saving would be equivalent to the weight of metal in the Eiffel Tower. This also translates into a CO2 saving estimated by Ardagh to be in the region of 15 percent.

The introduction of nitrogen dosing in a consistent and controlled way, and how best to accommodate the increased internal pressure upon the can bottom and end also presented a design challenge to the Ardagh team. This was successfully met, and a completely redesigned and re-engineered can is now able to withstand pressures of up to 4.5 bar.

Evolution
The concept for this type of can goes back six years when a pilot line was commissioned at Ardagh’s R&D centre in Crosmières, France, based on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques established several years earlier to numerically calculate suitable can concepts and design. The project started in earnest in May 2011 once the first patent was granted, covering both can geometry and shape in addition to the re-engineered easy-open end and new pressure-resistant can bottom.

The Bonduelle cans are made at Ardagh’s DWI advanced production facility in Deventer in The Netherlands, and filled at Bonduelle’s facility in Vaulx Vraucourt, Northern France. The first application of the stylish new packaging is on Bonduelle’s Winter Vegetable range (Red Beans and Black Beans), to be followed by the gradual rollout on other products in their canned vegetable range.

Commercial and marketing director of Bonduelle, Agnes Dion, says, “Through close cooperation with Ardagh, we are delighted to continue Bonduelle’s track record of being first to market with new product innovations. This new concept contains so many benefits for the consumer, and is a true success story for sustainable metal packaging.”

Investment
Following heavy recent investment in DWI technology throughout the Group, Ardagh confirms that the new style cans are suitable for production at its European production facilities, and that it has successfully carried out tests on cans for other food products.

The current material container area, we will focus on talking about the demand for the beverage industry focused on cap and cap products in the field of development.

For different beverage products, they have some common needs of caps, such as:

sealing / re-seal: seal well; protective packaging

marketing support: ease of use, promotion, improved packaging, diversification

Economy: The price is competitive anti-theft function: to prevent breaking the seal, false

blocks: high efficiency, high productivity security: food grade, non-polluting Plastic Cap pushed to the beverage packaging front, since the mid-90s of last century, the production of PET bottled Coca-Cola beverage use Plastic Cap instead of aluminum cap, which would Plastic Cap pushed to the front beverage packaging. Since then, with strength and beverage packaging businesses have imported foreign equipment manufacturers, Plastic Cap began mass production and application. Now, both light and easy to open the plastic anti-theft caps for the beverage packaging is not only convenient for consumers, but also speed up the beverage industry.

As domestic beverage business is highly competitive, many well-known beverage companies have adopted the latest production technology and equipment, which makes our system covers machinery and plastic cap production technology have reached the world advanced level. The cover, such as Gabriel (BERICAP), Sacmi (SACMl), Ao Keya (Alcoa), Husky (Husky), Demag (Demag), Nestal, Engel (Engel) and other world-renowned system of covered mechanical also have entered the country. At the same time, in plastic bottle production, plastic injection and compression molding process, the struggle begun in a big screen. Technological innovation is undoubtedly the driving force for the rapid development of Plastic Cap.

Order to better meet the needs of individual products, beverage products, packaging enterprises in the whole bottle full of kung fu. We can drink from a few years with minor indications of product packaging. Meanwhile, suppliers have also introduced a different function and form of cover. This will not only meet the demand for products, but also bring more business to the end user the opportunity to choose.

Bottle beverage products show some typical:

Sports cover Early as 1998, farmers in China, launched its spring campaign covered by water, packaged beverages, and sports caps are consciously introduced as a big selling point, so that their products quickly occupied the market, despite the current movement has been gradually built out of drinks market, but the cap for the rich family, its contributed.

Streamlined bottle, concise fashion the unique double green packaging and bottle design, the pure “water” into a unique fashion taste with a full personal style products. This double cover of green products has become a huge selling point.

Pull ring cover Beverage exhibition in the supermarket, a name, “I drop” fruit beverage products using a novel pull-ring cover design. You can see that a whole product, with ring-pull drinks. This product’s plastic cover is inlaid with a pull ring, so that the whole package is like a small water bottle, but also bring great convenience to consumers. As a result of the plastic lid, often attract consumers whom stopped.

To cut costs?? Short cap came into being

Beverage industry for now, in order to better reduce costs, suppliers have to focus on the PET bottle to the top. Let them become shorter bottle favorable measures in Europe, short mouth of PET bottles was first used in beer industry, and success.

2005, the Coca-Cola bottle began to focus short-PET bottles, they also want to short this bottle cap and the corresponding application in fruit juice and carbonated beverage products above. However, this application is a certain difficulty, of course, is reflected in the carbonated drinks. We all know that soda itself is the injection of carbonic acid in the drinks, making drinks taste better, but also for this reason, the packaging of carbonated drinks bottles usually 6 to 8 there is pressure, compared to ordinary fruit juice is , give mouth of the bottle and cap to bring greater pressure.

Theory is, between the mouth and the cap screw through mutual contacts sealed bottles, of course, the area between the screw and bottle the greater the degree of the better confined. But if the bottle shortened cap also shorter, and the corresponding, thread and the contact area between the mouth of the bottle, can do to reduce, so not conducive to sealing effect. So, after a complex test (such as drop test, transport test, etc.) now have

Drinking Water Containers – Why Plastic Bottles Have Got to Go!

Drinking Water Containers – Why Plastic Bottles Have Got to Go!

The late, great comedian, George Carlin, used to do a comedy bit about how he saw people, everywhere he turned, carrying a water bottle. He punctuated this hilarious routine with an exasperated question: “Just when did everyone get so thirsty?” As funny as this was, his keen observation about the increase of people carrying their own drinking water containers points to a more serious problem: plastic water bottles have become one of the biggest sources of pollution in the U.S. Plastic bottles have got to go!

In recent years bottled water has become one of the giants of the beverage industry. As Americans continue to demand clean drinking water, this industry has gone full-throttle to ensure that each and every person is able to have their own drinking water container, when and where they want it. Unfortunately, “full-throttle” means that over 60,000,000 plastic bottles are produced, transported and disposed of EVERY DAY in the U.S. alone!

Don’t get me wrong. I like having the convenience of drinking clean water from my own drinking water container. However, there is no evidence that bottled water is any cleaner than most tap water. The government doesn’t even require bottled water be any safer or purer than tap water. So what you’re buying (and I’ve been guilty of it too) is a slick advertising concept that makes it seem as if this bottled water just bubbled up from a mountain spring. And then you’re stuck with having to dispose of this polluting plastic.

So does this mean that personal drinking water containers are a bad idea? Absolutely not! You can still drink clean, filtered water conveniently from your own personal drinking water container. All you have to do is use drinking water containers that have been designed to be used over and over again. The best reusable containers are made from glass.

Besides being 100% recyclable, glass containers have other advantages. Glass preserves the taste and purity of filtered water. Water stored in plastic bottles risks becoming contaminated from plastic byproducts, like BPA and phthalate. As these substances leach from the plastic, the water loses its taste and purity. Glass doesn’t have this problem.

And let’s not forget that refilling and reusing these drinking water containers is going to mean more money in your pocket. If you are buying bottled water on a regular basis, it can get expensive.

There is also a psychological advantage to using glass drinking water containers. When you’re thirsty and looking in the fridge for something good to drink, and you spot a crystal-clear, cold glass container of water, you’re going to instinctively reach for it. Drinking more clean, healthy water is one of the best ways to promote good health.

These non-polluting, drinking water containers are readily available from most reputable water filtration system providers. You can find these providers, like I did, with just some simple research. When you drinking filtered water, conveniently, from your own reusable drinking water container you will be doing yourself and our planet a big favor.
